Spirit Treadmill

Innovation Continue

Spirit treadmill have a very good reputation in the industry for being well built, stable, higher end treadmills since 80’s. Spirit continues to support fitness products more than ever today with an unparalleled motivation that always puts customers as first priority.

spirit high quality and durable motorSpirit is manufactured in US but they have moved their fabrication to Taiwan after Dyaco purchased Spirit Fitness. With this business decision, Spirit can lower their treadmill market price and so far with no decent in quality. Additional, Spirit begins to grow where Dyaco continue to put on financial support for research and development for more quality and reliability.

Spirit products are uniquely engineered and constructed to deliver safe and effective cardiovascular training results. Spirit introduces few treadmills into market including the Spirit X, Z series, Esprit series and the Spirit XT series. Few have discontinued and now are mainly focus on X series and Spirit Espirit.

 

Why choose Spirit Treadmill

  1. The Spirit name is now owned by Dyaco, and it actually is the same company behind the excellent Sole treadmill. Both spirit and Sole are built with same components with similar design. The different actually are their target markets as Spirit primarily sells through fitness equipment specialist stores and several resellers online, where you can get professional and personal service. You may find Spirit service are responsive enough as Spirit’s main motivation is always put priority on customer.
  2. Spirit Ventilation Airflow DesignThe innovation and creative design for Spirit treadmill especially Spirit’s motor with case motor mount is designed to help preventing the motor from shifting which resulting loosen belt and following feel like very slipping. Added, better air flow circulation at motor cover which comes with ventilation design by using large aluminum frames on lower electronics to absorb excess heat. All airflow circulation will help to keep the treadmill cool and running for years.
  3. Most Spirit model especially the latest X Series treadmill is offering  lifetime on frame, motor and deck, 10 years parts,  1 year labor warranyy coverage. The 10-year warranty on parts is a much better warranty than most treadmills have as majority of treadmill brands only offer with 5 years on parts. For the mid end range ($1000 tot $2500), this is extremely difficult to beat.

 

Spirit Treadmill Price Range

Spirit are fall in mid range price of treadmill and you probably can get it less than $2000. Their new Espirit series range offering with trendy design and quality component. Spirit maybe still not as well known by other brands, but I believe with their Spirit series which high quality but with this price range, Spirit may put some fire on Treadmill industry. They will grow popularity once they become widely distributed.

Note: Spirit sells through a network of dealers and not direct to the public which required picked up or delivered locally. However, you still can get the sprit’s treadmills from their licensed dealers that trade online. In fact, there are offering some discount and free gift from them. Do your smart calculation here!
