A Complete Review Of The Smooth 9.25X Treadmill
About The Smooth 9.25X Treadmill
The 9.25X Treadmill is Smooth ' s top of the line treadmill and most expensive. At ($3,499), the Smooth 9.25X is a top end, residential treadmill. There are various features on the Smooth 9.25X that separate it from the rest of it ' s competition and makes it one of the most exciting treadmills in this particular price range.
This is the most powerful motor your going to find on a residential treadmill.
Also, the tread belt is the longest in it ' s class at a super, 62 in length.
This tread belt will accommodate the longest and most expansive stride from even the most avid runner.
The 4-ply orthopedic belt is simply fantastic. The belt is super smooth and very gentle on the feet and knees.
A feature that I found to be remarkable is the Heart Rate Control with wireless chest strap.
You just strap it on and the rest is history. It monitors your heart rate and even automatically adjusts the intensity of your workout depending on your heart rate goals! This is just one of the many luxury features you will find on this treadmill.
The Smooth Premium Sound System provides exceptional audio output and has the speakers molded into the console in order to enhance your fitness workout. Listen to music or watch television and listen through these speakers.
Precor 9.33 ($3,499)
SportsArt TR32 ($3,499)
The Smooth 9.25X is a pretty heavy treadmill. The 9.25X has a great combination of size and weight that will handle both, heavy body weight and light jogging. It has the largest dimensions of it ' s competitors, and offers enough weight to stabilize that weight and plant it solidly on the ground.
- 15 levels of incline (1%-15%);
Easily adjust the speed and incline from the center console on the treadmill. Just press up or down on either incline or speed to adjust to your liking. This model features Exclusive Impression Shock Absorption technology, which lowers the amount of impact on your back and joints while using. The speed and incline of the Smooth 9.25X is pretty standard in this price range. However, the Smooth 5.25X is about .5 MPH faster than the rest of the competition. This means that you can run a little faster than you can on the other treadmills in this price range.
SportsArt TR32 - 3.2 Continuous Motor;
Personally, I will always go with a more powerful motor. A powerful motor will always ensure that your treadmill is quiet, smooth and can handle the wear and tear of heavy, everyday use. Simply take a quick look at Precor ' s and LifeFitness ' top commercial treadmills and both come with a 4.0 Continuous motor.
- Premium Sound System;
The display console looks like something you would see at NASA. I love it! See the image below.

This treadmill can stand up to even the most vigorous training sessions. At a solid 304 pounds, the 9.25X will hold 250+ pounds running at a brisk pace, even in an incline position. You won ' t find any wobbles on this treadmill.
Heart Rate Monitor
- Contact pulse pads;
Heart Rate Control with wireless chest strap. The treadmill determines a preset maximum target heart rate based upon your sex, height, weight and age. (Or you can adjust settings to whatever maximum target workout rate you want.)

- Lifetime frame and welds;
Lifefitness T50 Treadmill Warranty:
Sportsart TR32 Treadmill Warranty:
Lifetime frame and parts;
If a return is necessary, you get a 30-day trial period. You must obtain an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) for the product and pay shipping costs to send it back (although I must say I don ' t really see anyone returning this product unless it ' s broken).
- $3499 at Smooth Fitness website (payments from $97/month)
I do have a minor issue with Smooth's pricing policy and shipping. Smooth says on it's website that free shipping is included in the price but it doesn't say where it's being shipped to. In fact, the 9.25X will be shipped to the nearest pick up depot in your area. Who wants to pick up a treadmill at the nearest shipping depot? I know I don't.
- The longest tread belt at 62;
All the best,
