    Great service! Great price! Great product! I ordered the machine (Kettler Favorit rower) Thursday afternoon and it arrived only two days later, on Saturday. This was even faster than promised, which was still faster than anyone else. I also got a great price for the machine, much lower than elsewhere. The machine itself is also great so far. It really simulates actual rowing, which no other rower in its price range does. Michael Schultz, Los Angeles, California

    I am very happy with my bike I purchased in December. I've been using it everyday for an hour since December 16th and I have already seen a big difference in my muscle tone and everything fits me better. I am so happy I finally went for the purchase; I should have done it years ago. It is worth every penny to feel so good about you. Andy was very helpful and pleasant when I called and I thought it was shipped out fast. I received my bike in one week and I can't say enough about how nice this machine is. Thank you so much.

    Tricia Kazlauska | Oneida, NY

    We purchased from Fitnessdirtect a WaterRower and the quality of the machine is outstanding. The machine is quiet and is a significant improvement over some of those noisy dust collectors. That assessment is based on 41 years of rowing in all types of boats and rowing machines. If you are looking for a great place to do business with then contact Fitnessdirect. They are courteous, reliable and very helpful. Combined with the great service and quality is the best price around.

    John Davidson | S Natick, MA

    Greetings, I am writing to congratulate you on your outstanding customer service. The item I purchased (sit up board) was back ordered so the transaction involved a number of communications between myself and your staff. Your company receives a 100% AAA+++ in this area. I was kept well informed by members of your staff regarding the status of my order and their friendly, prompt and courteous service is unparalleled. Having sold BMW and Mercedes automobiles for 15 years I recognize quality customer care when I see it. This was truly an extraordinary buying experience and it was your people who made it such. Lastly the product is exactly as promised and I could not be more pleased with every aspect of this transaction. Best Wishes, The purpose of life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others. Only then have we ourselves become true human beings.

    Just letting you know how satisfied I am with the product and service....the order actually arrived BEFORE I received my shipping confirmation number. As far as the ab machine....SUPER!!! I've been working out for 20 plus years and have been finding it more and more difficult to get up and down from the floor (no kidding) when doing my ab workout (I'll be 52 in March). Not only does the ab leverage machine conquer my up and down problem, but it really blasts my abs. GREAT PRODUCT!! I'll be shopping you guys again.

    David Burns | Ashland, OH

    Two points. One. From the time I first made an inquiry about buying a treadmill for my daughter through the delivery problems (see below) Andy Grenz was absolutely terrific! He always responded promptly, was most helpful in resolving any issues, and couldn't have been more user friendly. Second. The delivery service in Dallas was not particularly helpful in trying to find a convenient time for the delivery (it required intervention by Andy) and on the delivery date, they were two hours later than the scheduled time.

    Hi Andy, Just a quick note to let you know that I received my Kettler Condor elliptical Trainer today. You were right; this is one heavy duty and easy to use machine.It is just what I was looking for. Thank you for taking the time to hear my entire Elliptical trainer needs and for pointing me in the right direction. Also, the people at Conway Express are great to deal with, they even gave me a heads-up on the delivery time so that I could make myself available.

    Steve Parker | Birmingham, AL

    You can imagine my uncertainty........The Ab board was my first eBaypurchase, your help on and off the website made me feel more at ease knowing that there was a real person on the other end of the email address.

    Armand M. Estrada | Alamo, CA

    I was very satisfied with the service and information provided. I will be a repeat customer.

    Kurt Schels | Eagle River, WI

    Andy and Victor, Thanks to for making the transaction go so well. I felt like my business was appreciated, which isn't as common as you would think in today’s environment with all the competition. I received my Kettler spinning bike and elliptical cross trainer. I considered getting only the bike, but you gave me a price that included shipping and swayed me to get both at once. They are both very high quality pieces of equipment and operate super smooth. Directions included made for quick and easy assembly. I'm looking forward to years of indoor fitness from my equipment. I would recommend doing business with Fitness Direct to anyone that wants to buy quality training equipment from people that are great to work with. I'm glad I followed your advice and had help to my merchandise. With the extra built in crating for the elliptical, the boxes were heavy and bulky.

    Jessica D. Sergent | Albuquerque, MN

    Thanks for the quick shipment and great value on the fitness equipment. I had been searching the internet for a VKR/chin/dip station. I saw the same piece on fitnessfactory.com but it was more than I wanted to pay after you figure in shipping. I had bought a home gym free weight rack system from fitnessfactory.com and I knew they sold nice, solid equipment. So I was very surprised when my equipment arrived and was shipped directly from fitness factory in Chicago. It was exactly the same thing they are selling on their website but considerably less expensive from you guys. I don't know how you worked that out but hey, I don't really care. I got a nice, solid piece of equipment for a great value, so thanks.

    Sam Phillips | St. Louis, MO

    I am so pleased with how quickly I received my order. The shipping was free and arrived to my door in 5 business days. The product arrived in perfect condition and is exactly as was advertised. I would definitely purchase through Fitness Direct again.

    It was a long and complicated journey sending my new Kettler Coach Rowerfrom San Diego to my home on Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada. Andy Grenz provided outstanding customer service and was at all times friendly and accommodating. It has arrived safely and I am delighted with its performance. Many thanks for your professional service and follow-up!

    Mary Jo Wilson | Lake Cowichan, BC

    Thanks Andy for the fast and courteous service. From the first quote request I was hooked. Even though the stepper I inquired about was out of stock, Andy offered me a higher priced model for the same price. He answered my questions on the phone, and assured me about the shipping process, which was so fast that it is within 2 days of ordering. They had just opened a fitness superstore in my neighborhood, but I never even stepped foot into it, because my stepper was delivered to my driveway by Best Overnight Express who helped roll it into the garage. I assembled it in a few hours, with the "help" of my 4 year old, and had my first workout that evening. The Diamondback stepper gives me a better workout than the one at the fitness center I'm a member of, and I have a feeling that I won't be going back there too often. I am truly satisfied and will visit your store the next time I'm in San Diego to see what else I'd like to try

    Clare Chu | Fremont, CA

    Once again I would like to thank you for helping me work through the comparison of the life core S series model 1050RBs and the Spirit RBs95 model recumbent bikes. You spent a valuable amount of time discussing the relative merits of both units and with further research, I found the Spirit was a far better value for my family and me. I could have never reached my decision without your expertise, for which I shall always be grateful to you!!! Sincerely yours, Frank (from Michigan)

Add To Compare

Where the XT185 is geared for newcomers to exercise, the top of the line Spirit XT285 was designed for bodies that are returning and getting back into the swing of fitness. It’s never too late to pick up the torch once again.

Comparatively, the Spirit XT285 Treadmill comes with six more preprogrammed workouts, a highly variant manual program, and a couple extra heart rate tracking options for some extra metabolic kick. The idea is to expand the challenge threshold for a musculature with some experience.

While there are plenty in the commercial setting, in general the Spirit XT285 Treadmill was engineered more for the home gym. Here are three of the main reasons why reviews speak so highly of the XT285 from a home gym perspective. 

It all Starts with a Stable Mount

You can tell a lot about the quality of a product based on where the manufacturer invests their money in the product. Do they spend it on useless bells and whistles, or do they spend it on parts that actually enhance the quality and performance of the product? Spirit Fitness spend money on quality, such as cast motor mounts. Why cast? We do not believe that a stamped steel motor mount will give the motor the secure mount that is required for a high quality treadmill. If the motor shifts, then the drive belt will loosen, which will make the walking belt feel like it is slipping. Take off the motor cover and look beneath the hood, you can learn a lot about the design of a treadmill.

Fold it Away for Extra Space 

The Spirit Fitness Folding Treadmill is easy to fold up and down for your work-out. This feature gives you a full size treadmill for working out, but then folds into a tight compact space when not in use. Simply pull the yellow handle located on the back of the treadmill frame and the unit will unfold. It’s design will allow you to let go and it will come to a soft landing on your floor with no need to bend over and guide it to the floor. To fold up, simply pick up the treadmill deck and lift. You will notice that our assisted design makes this easy and convenient. 

Keep It Cool

One thing that will destroy a treadmill or any electronic device is heat. It is critical that the drive motor, elevation motor and electronics under a motor cover be kept cool. Our engineers have developed an airflow system that promotes air circulation around the motor and electronics to help keep them cool. Our motor covers are designed with ventilation and we use large aluminum frames on our lower electronics, which act as heat sinks to absorb excess heat. The XT185 and XT285 have vents on the front of the motor cover. Spirit XT385, XT485 and XT685 have vents on the front along with ventilation on the top of the motor covers to promote extra air-flow. All Spirit Fitness treadmills are designed to keep the treadmill cool and running for years.

 Easy-to-use Consoles 

Most of our treadmills have multiple locations to adjust the speed and elevation. You can always adjust the speed and elevation on the console with the quick keys or with the + and – keys on the lower console. The speed can also to be adjusted with the + / - button located on the right handlebar. The left handlebar allows for the incline to be changed. There is even a button on the lower console that allows you to disable the buttons on the handlebars. It is important that you feel comfortable on your treadmill. Allowing you to choose how you make the critical speed and elevation adjustments is just one of the features you will find on Spirit Fitness Treadmills.

Customized Home Gym Companion

  • Noiseless - Spirit wanted it to be so quiet that anyone could set it in front of the TV and not be distracted from their favorite shows while trekking through the hill or fat burn programs. Despite its high torque rate, wide running surface, and 0.5 to 12 mph speed rage, it purrs like a kitten getting a professional back message.
  • Sturdy - This product is meant to be a long term lifetime exercise machine. It was built to last. From the cooling fan and elastomer cushioning, to the 2 ply textured duraweave belt and rollers, everything is quality in action.
  • Efficient - It’s hard to hit a plateau with this treadmill because of the sheer volume of options, inclines, speeds, and resistance levels available. The benefits and results start to materialize in a time efficient manner, and there are always ways to mix things up.

 

Spirit Treadmill Comparison Chart

 

What Are Customers Saying?

They’re telling us they love the 7.5’’ blue backlit LCD screen and the ability to plug into their musical gadgetry. The feedback is telling us that the Spirit tradition of expert and impressive layout coupled with plenty of storage space is a hit.

Commercial gym owners seem to think they’re great for small group activity classes, but it’s what the home gym owners are telling us that really tickles our fancy. 

“My husband and I are in our 40s, and we got our Spirit XT285 Treadmill several weeks ago. We already adore this machine and even playfully fight over who gets to use it. Because it is so easy to install, we had it up and running in a couple minutes.” 

“My sister likes to alternate between walking and jogging, whereas I’m older and more comfortable with walking. I use the inclines more, which are really easy to use and adjust. Plus, it’s so quiet! Even our dog loved being on this treadmill. It’s definitely well worth the investment as far as we’re concerned.” 

“For an entry level treadmill the Spirit XT285 Treadmill is a great machine. It helped me reap the benefits of jogging and running, and I’m doing all of it without having to go outside the safety of my own home.”

There are several keys areas that define a well designed treadmill. All Spirit Fitness models offer comfortable belts and cushioning systems, convenient storage and adjustments, generous features and programs, and eye catching aesthetics. Select the design elements you desire to create a product that will retain its value for years to come.

The XT285 10 year parts warranty rivals any in the industry. Your investment ensures peace of mind knowing that you have a quality built product with a long term commitment from us should you need service down the road.

Features

Console Feedback
A 7.5” blue backlit LCD screen that conveniently displays 9 pieces of data at a time to keep you informed and motivated.

Cooling Fan
Cooling fans that swivel are standard on all of our treadmills. This may just be the reason you extend your workout by a few minutes.

Remote Adjustment Keys
The user has the ability to adjust the incline on the left handlebar or the speed on the right handlebar. If you decide not to use them, simply press the Disable button on the console.

Mp3 Audio Jack & Speakers
Plug your MP3, Smart phone, or digital tuner into this jack for music broadcasting.

Quick Keys
The ability to quickly program a specific incline or speed with just a few key strikes.

Fold-Up Design
This space saving feature allows you to easily maneuver the unit out of the way when not in use.

Cushioning: 6 cushions evenly distributed throughout the unit ensure a comfortable experience.

Programs

Hill: This program follows a triangle or pyramid type of gradual progression from approximately 10% of maximum effort (the level that you chose before starting this program) up to a maximum effort which lasts for 10% of the total workout time, then a gradual regression of speed back to approximately 10% of maximum effort.

Fat Burn: This program follows a quick progression up to the maximum speed level (default or user input level) that is sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program will challenge your ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of time.

Cardio: This program presents a quick progression up to near maximum speed level (default or user input level). It has slight fluctuations up and down to allow your heart rate to elevate, and then recover repeatedly, before beginning a quick cool down. This will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung capacity.

Strength: This program has a gradual progression of speed up to 100% of maximum effort that is sustained for 25% of workout duration. This will help build strength and muscular endurance in the lower body and glutes. A brief cool down follows.

Interval: This program takes you through high levels of intensity followed by recovery periods of low intensity. This program utilizes and develops your “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers which are used when performing tasks that are intense and short in duration. These deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed by periods of recovery and heart rate drop to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more efficiently.

Manual: The Manual program works as the name implies, manually. This means that you control the workload and not the computer.

Heart Rate (2x): Designed to help keep you within 3-5 heart beats of your target heart rate % by automatically increasing or decreasing the incline level. Heart Rate 1 has a 60% (better for a fat loss goal) of projected heart rate maximum default. Heart Rate 2 has an 80% (better for a cardiovascular conditioning goal) of projected heart rate maximum default.

    We purchased this a few weeks ago and it installed in minutes. Husband and I, forty-somethings, fight over who gets to use it first, for it's perfect on many fronts. I'm more of a walker and play with the inclines (so easy! so quiet!) and he likes to go back forth with walk jogging. Only thing we have yet to figure out is why the calorie counter and pulse/heartbeat mechanisms seem so out of whack. Will have to reset the factory defaults. Otherwise, even our dog has gotten on and enjoyed it! Love this machine.
