movements over a sensor located on each handlebar. Also, treadmill has standard controls: start/stop/incline adjustment/speed (digital) adjustment. Maintain your workout target with console readouts: speed/distance/time/pulse/calories burned. Power fold/unfold switch makes this folding treadmill as convenient as it is powerful -- 2HP continuous duty DC motor with PWM control system. Plus, Phoenix Folding Treadmill has frame-cushioning system (patent pending) that helps cushion impact while walking or running.
My number 4 pick is the Phoenix 98516 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill. In fact it is the second Phoenix treadmill to make it into the top 5 spots. Actually there are very few differences between the two models other than a $20 price difference. Both models have the heavy duty weighted flywheel, electronic display, , have a 1 year frame warranty
This Phoenix manual treadmill is another good choice if you are a taller, heavier user, as it has a 41.5-inch long belt and a weight capacity of 250 lbs. However, the belt is narrower than the Stride II --- 13.5 inches on the Phoenix versus 17 inches on the Stride II --- which may lead to a feeling of instability in some individuals. The Easy-Up also features a single-button electronics display that tracks speed, distance, time, and calories burned, and folds up for easy storage. Phoenix offers a 90-day warranty on parts and a one-year warranty on the frame.
The Phoenix Manual Treadmill was very easy to assemble and can be assembled by one person in under 30 minutes. If you are looking for a serious Cardio burn from just walking, this is the treadmill for you. The incline plus the resistance of the belt puts all of your legs muscles into action. Within thirty minutes I felt like I had burned more calories than an hour outside. The incline is enough to truly build and tone your leg muscles. If you are looking for a serious workout, than this is the treadmill for you.
