Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill
Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up is one of the most popular and best manual treadmills on the market. The treadmill is outfitted with a heavy-duty weighted flywheel and a sturdy running belt that respond to your walking/jogging speed. The faster the user runs, the faster the belt spins. At the same time, the treadmill isn't completely low tech, as it offers a single-button electronics display that tracks your speed, distance, time, and calories.
Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill is outfitted with a spring-loaded pull pin that makes folding up the treadmill for storage a cinch. This is a nice feature for users who live in small homes or apartments.

1. Quiet workout: Workout is pretty quiet since lesser friction between the narrow belt (13 inches) and roller.
2. Handle ergonomics: Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up has a very different design on its handle which offers more freedom to hold on to. A lot of users love this handle design. See pictures below:
3. Ease of fold up: The machine is outfitted with a spring loaded pull pin makes it easy to fold for storage.
4. Affordable price: Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up is not the cheapest of manual treadmills. However, it is still a very attractive price at around $150 for the quality it offers (Please note: price does change from time to time).
1. Incline: The incline is not adjustable. The treadmill base is at an incline of about 7.5 inches from the ground up at the very front of the treadmill and there is NO WAY to adjust this. An incline is necessary because it uses your own body weight and momentum to slide the treadbelt.
2. Single flywheel: Workout is not as smooth as twin-flywheel manual treadmills.
3. Light weight: The machine weighs 45 pounds, makes it easier to move around. However, you may find it a bit flimsy.
4. 13-inch belt: While a narrow belt lets you start the treadmill with lesser effort, it does have its drawback as some users may find a narrower belt awfully difficult to walk on with their feet side by side. (Hint: Check the span between the outer periphery of your 2 feet as you stand with your feet spaced apart for normal walking to see if it's more than 13 inches, since the walking surface of the treadmill is only 13 inches wide.)
5. 250-pound user weight: This machine may not be right for you if your body weight exceeds 250 pounds since the maximum user weight of this treadmill is 250 pounds.
6. Electronic display: The maximum speed the electronic monitor can show is 4 mph. So, anything above that will show "stop" and what that means is that if you jog or run faster than 4 mph it will show nothing.
