Ohiyo!

The end-of-the-year holiday season can be a great time to pick up a treadmill at a great price. Everyday the Treadmill Sensei gets in emails from readers talking about great deals they’ve found online for equipment and I’m going to try and pass those notes along to you, my loyal readers.

Today’s offering comes from Amazon and is a great deal if you’re looking for a high end treadmill for a rock bottom price. Amazon.com is running a special on the Spirit Z500 Treadmill from last year. Since Spirit is one of the lesser known companies out there, you’re probably asking yourself “what the heck is the Spirit Z500 treadmill?” Well, if you’ve been searching around online then you are probably more familiar with the Spirit Z500 by its more common name, the Sole F83 Treadmill. That’s right, the 2006/2007 Spirit Z500 Treadmill is almost identical to the 2006/2007 Sole F83, with just a different paint job separating them.

The Spirit Z500/Sole F83 is a Best Buy Award Winning Treadmill at its regular price of $1747, and is an absolute steal at $1299 on Amazon.

Now, be warned, the Spirit Z500 is no longer being made under that name (it is still available as the Sole F83) so I’m not sure how much stock Amazon actually has. In other words, their sale could end at any time…so, if you’re looking for a fantastic treadmill at a $500 discount, then check out the best buy award-winning Spirit Z500 treadmill from Amazon.
