Experts who rate treadmills often find that Spirit treadmills are some of the most useful treadmills to exercisers.

Not only do they include advanced heart rate monitoring, the Spirit Z500 treadmill also offers heart rate auto pilot to help with keeping your heart rate steady throughout the workout, depending on your fitness level.

Some users tend to have difficulties with hand grip heart rate monitors, but the Spirit Z500 seems to get the angle just right. Professional users find the heart rate monitor easy to use while running or walking.

Consumers appreciate the treadmill warranty which offers the peace of mind that the Spirit Z500 is built to last – lifetime frame and (nearly lifetime) thirty year motor warranty.
