Hi this is Rachel I'm with WWE treadmill Reading reviews com we're here at yowza Fitness in Florida at headquarters and We're taking a look right now they're Folding machines this is the Osprey this Is the middle of their three models as Far as price and then also the features That are on the machine but I want to Take a moment and talk about the lido The lido is their machine that is I Guess you want to say most Budget-friendly machine there's a couple Differences between the Osprey and the Lido that we want to highlight just so You know what you're getting first off The motor on the lido is only going to Be two point five horsepower versus the 2.75 here so it's going to just you know A little less heavy duty motor the speed On the lido goes up to 8.8 miles per Hour as opposed to 11 here with the Osprey the length on the lido machine This is a 52 inch from front to back the Lido is going to be a 51-inch so Boop One inch that's going to be your Difference there and length from front To back also when you're looking at the People who are going to use the machine The weight capacity for these two Machines is a little different with this Osprey we can say okay someone who's up To 300 pounds with the lido machine well The factory recommendation is only 250 For that machine to be to be safe and
Finally the Osprey has you know really Nice area up here in the console the Lido actually doesn't have any water Bottle holders so just something to Consider so with all of these with all Of these recommendations the lido is Still a really good machine it's just Going to be a little bit less of those Features that we would see but hey we Got to say the best thing about the lido And the Osprey is the fact that it folds So let's just show you one time here Folding technology I squeeze the handle up And like i said the lido is smaller than The Osprey just just by a little bit so It folds up a little bit smaller even Than this model I forgot to mention with The Lido machine it actually doesn't Have power incline just give you a Heads-up don't want you to buy and be Shocked with the Lido what you do is Actually just kind of boost up the front Pop the wheels either up or down and That's going to either give you either Inclined or not inclines so it's just a Manual inclined as opposed to the Osprey Having that power inclined You We're actually in the customer service Center so if you're talking behind you This because these guys are on the phone Helping out customers with whatever they Need they have a really great program
Here and have a really responsive Customer service program for sure what I Want to show you right now is one of Three of the folding models for the Yowzer treadmills this is actually the Middle line there's one below and what Above this one but this is the Osprey Folding treadmill and probably my Favorite feature about this treadmill Especially compared to some other Folding treadmills that we've seen is it Takes up almost no space when you look At this thing it would be really easy For you to fold up this treadmill shove It in a corner cover it with a blanket Whatever and it would be out of the way If you needed it to be out of the way Some of the other folding treadmills That we've seen they fold up but they Still take up a good amount of space and And it wouldn't really be as easy to Hide as this one because this one just It goes up a really really high so with The Osprey this model is about a Thousand dollars as far as your price Range and when you come up to it it does Have kind of a nice safety feature in That if you press this button nothing Happens and that's a good thing because You don't want your kids to come up to This and see the big red lever and press The button and have it come crashing Down on top of them so to actually get This to come down you need to press the
Button and then just give it a little Bit of a start there it goes and still At that point it's not coming down and I'm just pulling gently on it and it's Assisted coming down so it's not even Though even if i press as hard as I can It's not going to just go crashing to The floor at this point I can just let It go and it'll come down on its own so That's a really nice safety feature just To make sure that it's not going to come Crashing down on you your kids your pets Anybody with the Osprey the Osprey Treadmill has a 2.75 horsepower Continuous duty motor and it is super Duper quiet when you get on this machine You're not going to hear lots of noise And and fans and all sorts of stuff Going on it's just a really quiet That's going to be nice if you're Working out in one room and somebody's Reading a book or studying for tests in The other room you're not going to be Disturbing them throughout the house When you look at the running belts this Does have the multi-layer PDC with nylon Polyester whisper we've bottomed belt And the running surface is 20 inches Side to side 52 inches front to back so I do want to emphasize 52 because some Of the other yowza models are 55 inches Some of them are 60 inches and then they Even have some models that are 63 inches Front to back so if you're comparing 52
263 you know that's that's a nice bit of Space extra from front to back so it's Something to consider especially if You're going to have a really long Running stride or if you're a really Tall person then you just want to be Aware that it is a little bit more of a Shorter running surface for me I think I'd be perfectly happy on this treadmill I could run and I wouldn't have any sort Of problem with the front to back I Would be perfectly comfortable so again It's up to use your preference okay the Osprey has a enormous deck area or Console area i should say i could easily Stick my water bottle in here if it was A narrow short bottle get one of those Disposable water bottles i could just Put it flat in there fit no problem if i Had a baby monitor i could put that in There if I had my my ipod whatever There's lots of space right here that You could put all sorts of stuff the Screen here is going to be a blue Backlit screen and on one side you have Quick press buttons for speed from 2 up To 11 miles per hour and then inclined To up to twelve percent incline the Osprey also has six different programs So you're going to have manual interval Incline interval speed weight loss a 5k Self learning program and then a heart Rate control program so each of these Are going to kind of give you some
Variation in your data they work out so Let's go ahead and have you take a look At how this machine goes This machine does have a built-in heart Rate receiver so if you're interested in Wearing one of the heart rate devices That you strap around your body this Machine is able to handle that no Problem and that is just a more accurate Than the handgrips that a lot of Machines have and this does have the Handgrips as well so if you wanted to Grab those you could also this bar is Nice just if you need to hold on to Something if you're a person who just Needs to grip onto something make sure You're balanced there's lots of things To hit hold onto with this okay so I'm Just going to go ahead and run on this First second and see how it moves Okay and stop so you know honestly this Is a decently comfortable machine it Doesn't have anything super super fancy With the shock absorption but I could Run on this machine for shorts it's Pretty comfortable if you've looked at Some of the other yowzer models you'll See that they have the swing arm Swingarm technology in the front the Folding version does not have that Instead they have something called be Eight let me get it right because it was A long long term picture I say right an Eight-point spring and haste dampening
System basically what that means is that Bushings along the way that are just Going to provide a little bit of a Squishier surface in the front a little Bit of a firmer surface in the back just To make sure that you have enough Protection on your joints as you're Running so overall osprey machine Definitely the biggest perk is the fact That you can just hold it up and then You are good to go and hiding that all You have to do to fold it is I'm just Going to squeeze a button in the back Give it a lift wait until I hear that Click and boom and then so definitely a Cool machine Osprey check it out if you Want to learn more about this or other Machines check out our website at www Aiding service com thanks a lot
