Smooth 5.45 Treadmill Review: Best Buy Under $1,000

Jul 20, 2008
The Smooth 5.45 treadmill is an excellent folding treadmill for the home for people wanting to spend less than $1000. The Smooth 5.45 is a superb machine that easily out performs and outlasts other treadmills in the same price range. You should know the Smooth 5.45 is a revamped version of the Smooth 5.25 treadmill. The Smooth 5.25 is an excellent machine that has always been on the "best buy" list based on user reviews. The changes that have been made that resulted in the Smooth 5.45 are fantastic and were primarily made as a response to customer input.

After shopping around for treadmills, many people are curious how Smooth Fitness can offer a machine like the 5.45 at such an economical price. The answer really isn't difficult. Smooth Fitness only sells their machines online. By cutting out the middlemen and retailers, they can bring these savings to consumers and offer high-end machines at affordable prices.

You probably know that a treadmill is really only as good as the motor that is in it. The motor on the Smooth 5.45 is exactly like the Smooth 5.25. It is a 2.5 continuous duty motor that is very quiet and smooth. Users rave about the motor and claim they can workout anytime they want because it is so quiet.

Yet, let me say that if you are into running, this machine might not be the one for you. You may want to look at machines that are made more for runners. One that comes to mind is the Smooth 6.45. It has a more powerful motor and is better suited for intense running.

One thing I really like about the Smooth 5.45 treadmill that really makes it stand out from its competition is its high-tech shock absorption deck. Users report that there is a big difference between the absorption decks on this machine than on other machines. Having such a cushion under your steps means you can walk longer without stressing out your joints and knees. This also makes the Smooth 5.45 ideal for someone who has back problems.

Another change that was made to the Smooth 5.45 treadmill was the extension of the deck. Smooth Fitness heard what tall users had to say about the deck on the 5.25 and worked to make its replacement more accommodating for long-limbed users. The weight of the Smooth 5.45 was also increased for added stability. It weighs 210 pounds-20 pounds heavier than the old model. This machine isn't going anywhere, no matter how much of a pounding you give it. Yet, please note that this machine should be set up wherever it will be permanently because it's not easy to move!

If you have done any research on treadmill warranties, you know many of them aren't very good. Smooth Fitness is known for its warranties. The Smooth 5.45 treadmill comes with a one year service/labor warranty, a 3 year parts warranty and a lifetime warranty on the motor. With all its features, outstanding warranty, and reputation for being a very low-maintenance machine, the Smooth 5.45 is on my list of "best buy" treadmills. Smooth Fitness has really gone out of its way to bring an upscale folding treadmill to the marketplace at a price tag below $1000.
