EXPERT REVIEW

This is one of the most underrated machines on the market and stacks up well against anything in its price range. The only issue is that you really don't want to buy a high-end model from an economy company unless you can get a discount to match the brand. You can do a lot worse than Spirit although there are some more refined models on the market that are worth your attention at $2,500. At this price point, you start getting into True machines. When you consider that even Bodyguard has some time tested machines with some tech advantages near this price point, it really shows how behind Dyaco has allowed itself to fall.

General Information

Spirit Fitness is a company that was started in the early 80's and has produced many types of products and started producing fitness products in the late 80's. They are known for product innovation. Their treadmills are typically mid-priced. Dyaco International purchased Spirit years ago and all of their production is offshore. The quality has been improving and Dyaco has made a huge investment in the Spirit brand.

Quality / Philosophy

The once totally US owned factory is now a subsidiary of Dyaco, who hails from Taiwan. The practice of putting decent parts in their treadmills has continued once again and they are trying to fill the value segment with many decent choices. With heavy competition from Icon and Horizon, it will be interesting to see how they do.

Outlook

Dyaco has poured quite a bit of money into the Spirit brand to revitalize it and the results are showing. Their move to a more value oriented business should help their results.
