Spirit Z100 Treadmill Review

Spirit Z100 Treadmill

Spirit Z100 Treadmill

Update: This treadmill has been discontinued.

To look for an alternative, you might want to check out our best treadmill page.

The Spirit Z100 treadmill is another great looking treadmill with questionable quality.

It is similar to the Z9 model but I think this one has a slight edge.

Is This Treadmill for You?

This model would fit those looking for feature rich treadmills at very affordable prices. So if you think you are the person I’m talking about, then I suggest you read this review. This might be the treadmill for you.

However, if quality is very important to you, then you shouldn't buy this model. You'll be better off buying the Sole S77 treadmill. It is currently our best buy treadmill below $2,000.

What You’ll Get...

As I’ve said above, this treadmill is similar to the Z9 model, both have 3.0 HP continuous duty motor which can reach speeds of up to 12mph and can be elevated for up to 15%. Also, they both come with speed and incline control on the arm rest to allow you to easily adjust the intesity of your workouts.

The 20” x 55” running surface comes with double woven 2 ply belt but unlike the Z9, this one has a slightly bigger roller at 2.75 inches. And with bigger rollers, less pressure is put on the motor to move the belt thus, it will last longer.

Spirit Z100 treadmill also possesses 6 standard programs, 2 user defined programs, and 2 separate heart rate control programs to give more choices and flexibility in your workouts.

Additional features include an LED console with 6 windows that display important workout information, a speaker so you won’t have to wear headphones, a folding feature to help save space when not in use, and a cooling fan for those long workouts.

Weakness

As mentioned before, Spirit treadmills, including this one, lacks the quality to really be a contender in each of their respective price range categories. Dyaco, the manufacturer of the Spirit brand, doesn't use quality parts for their machines. As a result, the quality of their models suffered.

Recommendation

Just like what I’ve said in my Z9 review, I would normally recommend a treadmill like this one, but, I believe that there are other models in this price range that are better than the Spirit Z100 treadmill. So to conclude, I wouldn’t recommend it.

If you really want a treadmill in this price range, please visit our Sole S77 review. It may be $200 more expensive than the Z100, but you'll get better quality and an extremely huge motor.
