Spirit Fitness XT685 Treadmill Review

Spirit Fitness XT485 Treadmill

The XT685 is very appealing to someone that is a walker or a runner. This model features a non-folding platform base which is designed to stand up to the rigors of frequent running. 

Other design elements include a bright blue backlit LCD console, Quick Speed and Incline keys, wireless heart rate (telemetric chest strap included), remote Speed and Incline controls, and an anatomical figure that specifies which muscles are minimally and maximally activated.

Product Features & Specifications

Overview

 

Features

 

CONSOLE FEEDBACK

A 9” blue backlit LCD screen that conveniently displays 9 pieces of data at a time to keep you informed and motivated.

 

MUSCLE ACTIVATION

It’s important to understand which muscle groups are gaining the most benefit during your workout. On our treadmills, you will be using your glute (bottom), hamstring (back of your thigh), quad (thigh), calf, pec and arm muscles.

 

HEART RATE % PROFILE

Heart Rate training is proven to be one of the best ways to measure your workout. Our Heart Rate % Profile gives you a quick reference of your % compared to maximum projected heart rate. The LED lights up in Amber for 50-60%, Green for 65% to 80%, and Red for 85%+.

 

COOLING FAN

Cooling fans that swivel are standard on all of our treadmills. This may just be the reason individuals extend their workout by a few minutes.

 

QUICK KEYS

The ability to quickly program a specific incline or speed with just a few key strikes.

 

MP3 AUDIO JACK & SPEAKERS

Plug your MP3, Smart phone, or digital tuner into this jack for music broadcasting.

 

REMOTE ADJUSTMENT KEYS

The user has the ability to adjust the incline on the left handlebar or the speed

on the right handlebar. If you decide not to use them, simply press the Disable

button on the console.

 

CUSHIONING

6 cushions evenly distributed throughout the unit ensure a comfortable experience.

Programs

 

HILL

This program follows a triangle or pyramid type of gradual progression from approximately 10% of maximum effort (the level that you chose before starting this program) up to a maximum effort which lasts for 10% of the total workout time, then a gradual regression of resistance back to approximately 10% of maximum effort.

 

FAT BURN

This program follows a quick progression up to the maximum resistance level (default or user input level) that is sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program will challenge your ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of time.

 

CARDIO

This program presents a quick progression up to near maximum resistance level (default or user input level). It has slight fluctuations up and down to allow your heart rate to elevate, and then recover repeatedly, before beginning a quick cool down. This will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung capacity.

 

STRENGTH

This program has a gradual progression of resistance up to 100% of maximum effort that is sustained for 25% of workout duration. This will help build strength and muscular endurance in the lower body and glutes. A brief cool down follows.

 

INTERVAL

This program takes you through high levels of intensity followed by recovery periods of low intensity. This program utilizes and develops your “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers which are used when performing tasks that are intense and short in duration. These deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed by periods of recovery and heart rate drop to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more efficiently.

 

CALORIE

This program follows a quick progression up to the maximum speed level (default or user input level) that is sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program will challenge your ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of time.

 

FUSION

This program takes you through high levels of cardio & strength intensity followed by recovery periods of low intensity. This program utilizes and develops your “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers which are used when performing tasks that are intense and short in duration. These deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed by periods of recovery and heart rate drop to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more efficiently.

 

MANUAL

The Manual program works as the name implies, manually. This means that you control the workload and not the computer.

 

USER (2X)

Two people can store personal information and design a custom program that can be saved for future use. You decide what the resistance and incline will be for each segment of the program.

 

HEART RATE (2x)

Designed to help keep you within 3-5 heart beats of your target heart rate % by automatically increasing or decreasing the incline level. Heart Rate 1 has a 60% (better for a fat loss goal) of projected heart rate maximum default. Heart Rate 2 has an 80% (better for a cardiovascular conditioning goal) of projected heart rate maximum default.
