At $2,299, most people the find Smooth 9.25HR treadmill a bit expensive.
But with its powerful motor, huge running space, and generous warranties, you know that this treadmill is well-worth the money.
This treadmill is perfect for hardcore runners. If you’re an athlete or just someone who religiously run, this treadmill would be perfect for you. You're sure to get the most out of your workouts with its numerous features.
But of course, not everyone has enough money to spare on a treadmill. And if you think this model is too expensive, I suggest you visit our best buy treadmills page and choose a treadmill that fits your budget.
The Smooth 9.25HR treadmill comes with a powerful 3.0HP continuous duty motor. It gives you years of maintenance free service with a high horsepower. It prevents overheating while delivering strong performances. A motor this strong, would even satisfy the most hardcore of runners.
The extra long 20"x 62" treadbelt, with 6" straddle pads is ideal for interval training and tall individuals. This 2-ply belt is non slip, long lasting, and easy to clean. Also it lessens friction and noise.
The Smooth 9.25HR treadmill also boasts a wireless heart-rate control with belt and transmitter. Considered as one of the most efficient way to exercise, since your heart rate automatically controls your speed and incline for optimum workout intensity. In addition, it keeps your exercises within a safe zone.
The deluxe dot matrix easy read console displays your speed, distance, time, pace, calories burned, heart rate, and 1/4-mile running track. 2 separate windows simultaneously show speed, distance, time and calories so you won’t have to scroll. Plus, it challenges you with 12 pre-set programs and 3 user programs.
Smooth also oversized the buttons to make it easier for you to adjust your workouts while running.
2.5" commercial grade rollers with rubber sleeves allow for less tightening of the treadbelt and decrease tension and friction. This lessens the time spent on adjusting belt tracking while at the same time extending the life of the deck, belt and bearings.
The 2000 lbs of pulling power for elevation would be effective, quiet and durable for years. This makes sure that the treadmill won’t have a hard time elevating no matter how heavy you are.
The heavy duty frame is constructed using a uni-weld steel frame. This is also the one used by top treadmill manufacturers, like Precor, Trotter, Life Fitness, etc. This would give you lifelong durability and makes sure that there won’t be any loose or exposed bolts that might rattle after a few years. This is the main reason why Smooth is so confident giving away a lifetime warranty on their frames.
The treadmill weighs 304 lbs and its user weight capacity is 400 lbs. This gives you greater stability with a more solid feel. A thing to note here is that these numbers are comparable to most commercial treadmills.
The running deck is made up of a triple-laminated 1” thick phenolic deck. This model is as thick as commercial treadmills and the phenolic helps keep the deck lubricated and extend its life.
The Im-Pression™ advanced cushioning system is soft, yet stable when your foot strikes the deck. The Elastomer rubber isolators cushion the impact and transmit absorption throughout the length of the deck. This eliminates side to side motion that is harmful to your joints, knees and ankles.
The pulse width modulator or PWM circuit board comes with your purchase of Smooth 9.25HR treadmill. It gives you more power from “pure” voltage for your motor operation while avoiding electrical “hums”. It is quiet but at the same time very powerful.
The Smooth 9.25HR treadmill also has 2 cooling fans, one for the motor and another for electronics. These fans keep both the motor and electronics cool even if you use it for a long time.
And finally it offers a lifetime warranty on frames, 10 years on its motor, 5 years on its belt and deck/rollers, 3 years on electronics and a year on service/labor. Since the manufacturer fully backs their product, you know that this machine is of good quality.
Other than the expensive price tag, the weakness owners saw in Smooth 9.25HR treadmill is that it is huge. The machine takes up too much space, especially since the treadmill isn’t foldable. Also, like most Smooth treadmills the price includes shipping cost, but indoor delivery and set up costs extra.
I would recommend the Smooth 9.25HR treadmill but only if you have the budget and a big space at home. If you don’t have both, then I suggest you choose a cheaper treadmill with a folding feature.
