The workout programs are capable of controlling time, speed, and distance.

Yowza Fitness Sebring Features

The Yowza Sebring is highlighted by Intelligent Weight Management, or IWM for short.

IWM is a wireless weight scale that automatically transfers weight readings to the system, which in turn produces a personalized exercise program to fit your physical needs and helps you burn those extra calories.

The Intelligent Weight Management tool is essentially like having your own professional fitness assistant. It is intended to get you the best workout results possible.

You can change the workout variables as you like and IWM will follow them to consistently deliver the same exercise results. Furthermore, IWM’s self-learning system will store the latest workout program to make your next workout easier.

The Yowza Sebring features a 3.0 CHP motor, 20″ x 55″ running surface, incline to 12 percent and speeds that reach 11 mph. Adjust speed and incline on the fly with quick controls conveniently located on the console.

Progressive Shock Absorption Deck rests on multi-durometer elastomer rings providing a soft landing surface in front with a firm surface to push off from in the rear.

Listen to music with an mp3 jack and built-in hi-fidelity speakers.

Pulse grips are located on the handlebars for quick heart rate readouts. Or switch to the polar heart rate monitor to get readouts wirelessly.

The triple phenolic laminated deck on the Yowza Sebring is reversible and requires no regular maintenance.

The Yowza Sebring folds, but is not the most compact unit at 185 lbs. The treadmill also doesn’t feature a cooling fan which would be a nice addition for the price paid.
