The Siesta treadmill is the most affordable model of the three high-end folding units that Yowza produces. After several discounts, Siesta has now reached the generous price of $1000.
Still, you’ll be getting much more quality and features than many of the $1000 – $1500 range treadmills. From the CHP motor to a great warranty, the Siesta was designed according to high quality standards.

The reason why Yowza Siesta is a notable treadmill is that Yowza really focused on delivering quality components and useful features, instead of eye-catching frills that users never use anyway. Add the $1000 generous price and there you have it, a nice long-lasting quality treadmill that we definitely recommend.
Starting with the motor, let me say the Siesta provides a reasonable amount of power for both the workouts it incorporates and price range. One more perk is that this motor is CHP and not HP, which means more consistency and more benefits for your workouts.
Then, there is the large running belt that you don’t really find on other treadmills.
Well, maybe in the $2000 markets, but definitely not for a price less than $1000. And check this out, the belt is backed up by the Floating Deck system that provides a soft landing surface in the front and a firm surface in the back. And there is one more advantage that we fully take advantage of during workouts. It’s the cushioning system that really takes all the stress and injury off of you.
Having fast adjustment touch controls at your service is a blessing during workout. They make it so easy for us to simply change speed, incline and resistance. Sure, it’s no mind blowing discovery, treadmill producers have been using it for a long long time. Still, it’s nice to benefit from it for a $1000 price.
The workouts range is also something worthy of attention. Depending on your goal, you can embark on speed, calorie, time-focused workouts. Or maybe you want to lose the extra weight OR you’re simply interested in keeping your cardio up to date. You can do it all. We definitely do it all.
You get to fold it, listen to your iPod music and you get to do it for lifetime. Oh yes, there’s a lifetime warranty for frame and motor to take all your worries off of you. Quite competitive for this price range, wouldn’t you say?
We were stunned by the wireless heart rate receiver. You usually have to pay some extra cash to get this useful feature. And you should know it also works great. No stopping, no flaws. It’s the perfect heart rate monitor during Heart Rate Control workouts.
There is a reasonable user weight limit that allows almost all users benefit from this treadmill. And the $1000 price plus highly satisfying warranty make a great buzz.
Sure, there is also one drawback. For many it’s minor, for some it’s a decisional factor. Taller users may have issues on the Siesta track because it shortens their stride, which is definitely a good reason to look for another model, even if it means spending the extra cash.
All in all, the Siesta is an attractive package of generous price, quality components, eye-catching features, user-friendly motivating programs, injury-free absorption system and a great warranty to back it all up.
