The Yowza Keewadin Treadmill
Ohaiyou Gozaimasu! Today’s review is a from a brand that we’ve never reviewed before. Yowza! The Yowza Keewadin is a quick selling treadmill these days so I figured we could check it out.
Yowza is one of the only treadmill and elliptical companies who manufacture their own treadmills. In America, they are still underdogs, but are gaining popularity quick. They’re most popular in Europe, and are known in other areas as GreenMaster. They have no retail stores anywhere, they are a strictly online business, which allows them to offer the machines for cheaper.
They recently received a 5 star rating from TopConsumerReports.com, which is a pretty big deal. The rating was rewarded mainly for their highly rated customer service and high quality treadmills. TopConsumerReports.com said “Yowza Fitness also backs up their…machines with an exceptional warranty that includes lifetime frame and braking system coverage, five year parts and two year in-home service. If you’re looking for an outstanding…machine at an affordable price, Yowza Fitness should be your first stop.” Pretty good words from a top review site. He was talking about their ellipticals, but their treadmills are rated just as highly.
With all the popularity they’re gaining I decided to add them to my categories and start reviewing their treadmills as well. I figure many of you will be considering them and probably buying them so why not fill you in?
Their current best-selling treadmill is the Keewadin. It’s one of their most expensive, but it appears to be worth the money if it’s in your budget. The Quality and Usability of this machine deserves high marks.
The Specs are pretty good, but as usual they don’t say it all. The Keewadin has a 3.0CHP continuous duty motor (very quiet), a durable 20″x60″ running belt, 350lb weight limit, a uni-body steel powder-coated frame, 11MPH Speed, 12% Incline, and a nifty swing arm cushioning system (you could check out how that works on their site).
- Ipod Dock
- High Fidelity Speakers
- Wireless Chest Pulse Heart Rate Sensor
- Hand Grip Sensors
- Sweet high tech console with LED display
- 2 water bottle holders
- 9 user slots
- All sorts of preprogrammed workouts and functions
The warranty is one of the best in the industry providing you with a lifetime coverage on the frame and motor, 5 years on parts, and 2 years in-home labor. Or you can extend that plan for extra cost.
The cushioning system is unique and effective, and the look and feel of the treadmill simply feel good. It’s completely solid, and it’s built from the inside out to last for a very long time.
Before buying any treadmill check this one out first, see if you like it. Good luck!
