2012 seems to be a prolific year in the wide world of treadmills. By now, we’ve listed a few fine treadmills that will make the world go round, and here is one more to add to the bucket list. Yowza Daytona is a treadmill that we simply love. Its innovative technology definitely takes weight loss one step further. And it also has a few other goodies that instantly caught our eye. Here is why we are not sorry about it.
Let’s begin with the beginning. The heart of the treadmill, the motor, is not only powerful, but also surprisingly quiet given what it can do for you. It also features a precision balanced flywheel that ensures a smooth functionality of the belt.
We can’t be talking about motors, without talking about cushioning. I know no runner who’s not concerned about impact on knees, joints, hips and so on. We’re only talking about our own experience, but let me tell you this Swing Arm cushioning is crazy efficient. It offers 100% protection throughout your entire workout and releases you from all of your injury concerns.
Whether beginner or advanced, the Daytona has the ability to enhance your workout experience and take it forward. OK, don’t let me talk on your behalf, just try it on and see for yourself. We’re surely happy with what we’re stuck with.
iPod enthusiasts will be happy to know they will be able to listen to their favorite tune while running their heart out. Except the “running their heart out” part. Add the quality speakers and there you have it, cool entertainment with no compromise.
Oh yeah, and there is also a 3 speed fan for you to use when you feel you just can’t go on anymore. A decent warranty guarantees a prolonged usage of this unit.
Of course, we are talking about the hardcore IWM or Intelligent Weight Management system. What it does is to use your age, weight and fitness level to deliver you the workout that best matches your needs. Any weight fluctuation will be immediately identified and the system will alter your workout accordingly. So yeah, can’t lie anymore about those candies you’ve been eating in secrecy.
Big families will get as much as 9 different user profiles. Each user can record his/her routines and use them later on. Quite a deal, I’d say.
But despite all these very convincing details, you can’t fold the treadmill. But then again, how could you fold a powerful unit like this one?
If you’re not convinced yet, you just have to try it once. I’m sure it will get better than this in treadmill time, but for now, the Yowza Daytona is one of the leading models of 2011, and all for $2000. Sure, it’s never easy to spend this amount of money at once, but if you’re looking for performance, you may as well make the investment and not look back.
