XTERRA is a product of Dyaco International, a worldwide leader that specializes in the design, manufacturing and distribution of both commercial and home fitness equipment.
With their lower priced model, the XTERRA TR150 combines innovative technology with superior durability and is designed specifically for those who are looking to train and achieve both personal health and fitness goals in the comfort of their own rooms, offices, and home gyms.
The TR150 is priced a little costlier than most other treadmills that are designed to be budget friendly. It does however come with a variety of features that are not so predominant in other models priced in the same range. In this article, the various features of the new XTERRA TR150 will be explored in order to see if if the machine is worth breaking the bank for or not.
The exact dimensions of this particular treadmill come at a length, width and height of 63.4 x 28.75 x 51.4 inches. But it can also be folded away when it is not being used, with folding dimensions measuring at 28.5 x 28.75 x 61 in. Once you’re done using the treadmill, just fold it up, roll it and slide it in some corner where it’ll stay put until you wheel it out again.
The running surface measures up to 16 x 50 inches which is broad enough for most exercisers but could prove to provide constrained width for someone wanting to use the XTERRA TR150 for physically challenging workouts that involve running.
The XTERRA TR150 comes with a bright 5 inch LCD display that tracks your speed, distance covered, total time, calories burned, and pulse rate indicators to help you monitor your workout progress. Hand Pulse grips mounted on the left and right side of the treadmill’s handles help you keep track of the intensity of your workout and achieve your fitness goals. The TR150 is also loaded with 12 pre configured workout programs that vary in level of intensity. From less daunting physical workouts, you can configure the programs to up the ante for more intense ones.
The XTERRA TR150 also provides three incline options that can be manually adjusted in order to serve your workout needs and vary the level of intensity for each workout.
The heart grip pulse sensor helps you in monitoring your heart rate. It is found on the side of the handlebars. By placing your thumb on the hand grip, you can keep track of your cardiovascular functions.
Construction and Motor
The XTERRA TR150 weighs 108 pounds and can support a maximum 250 pounds of weight. A majority of other budget treadmills have a weight capacity of 220 pounds. This gives the XTERRA TR150 a significant advantage over its contemporaries in terms of accommodating users of greater weight.
With its 2.25 Horse Power motor, the treadmill can average up to speeds of 10 MPH making the XTERRA TR150 Treadmill more suited for more light leveled running workouts. So those who fancy that they can use the model for full-blown workouts like in the gym might be up for a little disappointment in learning that while the XTERRA TR150 would accommodate them, it won’t let users punish it with full scale rigorous workouts.
So with all features having been explored, let’s take a look at the obvious advantages and disadvantages that come with buying this product.
In a nutshell, the XTERRA treadmills are ideal for a fitness minded individual who wants a durable, attractive piece of equipment that will prove to be reliable in the long run. These treadmills are known for their longevity, look, and feel, making this model a perfect candidate for almost anyone looking for a dependable treadmill that will last for years to come.
The XTERRA TR150 is admittedly a little pricey but for entry level treadmills, it is a pretty good option to purchase especially considering that its price and features pair it up with the wildly popular Weslo G 5.9 Cadence treadmill. In fact, the TR150 model costs less than the Weslo. And while we love the Weslo as an entry level treadmill, we strongly suggest that if you’re looking for a model that gives the same features for a lesser price, your money on XTERRA’s budget friendly treadmill would not go wasted.
