Nothing about this 2.5 horsepower treadmill say’s “entry level”. With 10 programs and ample running space you’ll stretch your dollar with this value. How can Spirit offer a Lifetime Frame and Motor warranty with 4 years on the deck and 2 years on all parts? Well, they don’t outsource production that’s how! You’ll love the built in fan and yes it’s IPOD reading with speakers in tack.
