The Buzz

Yowza Smyrna Console

UPDATE:  The Yowza Smyrna has been discontinued. You can take a look at all of the new non-folding models for sale to find a comparable new treadmill.

The Yowza Smyrna Running Treadmill is very easy to assemble taking about 30 to 60 minutes to set up. The only real issue then is inside delivery. We would suggest you skip the $199 White Glove Delivery but definitely splurge $60 bucks for having this 229-pound workhorse brought inside your home; otherwise, delivery is to the curb only.

The Yowza Smyrna comes with a 3-speed adjustable fan, an iPod dock with speakers, 16 outstanding programs, up to 11 mph speed, 15% incline, a 300-lb user capacity, and contact HR grips on the handles. Under the shroud and treadmill deck, you get a cool-running 3.0 continuous horsepower motor, crowned rollers with sealed bearings, a quiet Whisper Weave running belt, a reversible and no maintenance 1" triple-laminated phenolic wax deck, and Yowza’s patented Floating Deck shock absorption system.

Reviews by pros and home users of the Yowza Smyrna rate it as one of the best mid-priced running treadmills they have ever stepped on. Many have even compared its quality and rock-steady performance to commercial gym units costing thousands more. Not only have home users been pleased by the quiet operation, attractive design, and performance, they are also impressed by the enthusiastic assistance of Yowza customer service. It sounds like one of the better buying experiences for treadmill shoppers….

What We Say

For $1,399, the Yowza Smyrna rates a Good Buy. It’s not often that a new model on the market garners so many recommendations by personal trainers over established models made by Smooth, Spirit, NordicTrack, and the rest. That’s because the Yowza Smyrna Running Treadmill is designed by the same inventor, Leao Wang, who launched the great Smooth Fitness line of treadmills and ellipticals. Wang’s reputation sells this model as much if not more than all of the stellar reviews.
