Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill Features and Specifications
Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill is very similar to R 5.2 - G 5.9 treadmill is a newer model, it is somewhat cheaper and they differ in few small details that only a few people will notice.
G 5.9 Treadmill has a 2.25 HP Impulse Motor (1.5 HP continuous). Obviously, this unit is powered by mains power and it requires 120V and 15 Amps - very important if you use a surge protector of some kind. 1.5 HP continuous is suitable power for longer walks and light jogging, but for fast runs, one needs larger, stronger, and more expensive treadmills.
During walking, noise levels are acceptable, but during faster runs, the treadmill is rather noisy - one can talk and listen to the music and similar, but if you plan on running on this treadmill early in the morning before work, while other family members are still sleeping, you will have to use a treadmill in separated room/area.
Treadmill comes with 2-Position Manual Incline - automatic adjustable incline is a great thing, but it is reserved for treadmills that cost much more.
Treadbelt is 16 inches wide and 50 inches long (41 x 127 cm) and it is ideally suited for women, lighter men, and elderly people. User weight capacity of 'only' 250 pounds (113 kg) just confirms this statement.
Treadmill comes with QuickSpeed Control and can be used for speeds between 0 and 10 MPH (16 km/h).
G 5.9 is 64.5" (164 cm) long, 29" (74 cm) wide and 55.5" (141 cm) high when in use. Thanks to the SpaceSaver design it folds treadbelt upwards and using built-in small wheels, it can be moved around and stored easily.
Weslo Cadence g 5.9 Treadmill can be easily assembled by one person, but if you are unaccustomed to such work, a second person can be of great help - and be sure to read the manual first :)
G 5.9 treadmill also comes with a few more, practically a standard, features:
- Easy Pulse Heart Rate Monitor: provides an accurate heart rate reading by simply placing one's thumb on the Easy Pulse sensor. Easy Pulse sensor is built right into the console and one doesn't require an additional heart rate monitor. If you do have any health-related issues regarding your heart, you MUST monitor your heart rate and keep the rate below the rate agreed by your doctor!
- Blue-Tinted LCD with Priority Display: Tracks one's workout results with easily readable blue-tinted LCD with Priority Display. Display tracks speed, time, distance, and calories burned so progress can be monitored throughout the workout. Note that the burned calories are not so accurate, since user weight is not used for counting calories. But, most of the treadmills in this price class have this 'issue' - nonetheless, burned calories are an important indicator of progress and be sure to keep track of your burned calories and adjust your workouts accordingly.
- Comfort Cell Cushioning reduces the stress on users' joints and increases workout comfort. The treadmill deck has a cushioning layer for impact absorption, which is very important for people that walk and run a lot and for people having joints issues.
- Warranty - The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 comes with a 1-year motor warranty and 90 days parts and labor warranty.
- 6 Personal Trainer Workouts - G 5.9 treadmill comes with 6 predefined workouts that can help burn fat, lose weight and increase stamina and motivation. These workout programs automatically adjust the speed of the treadmill for increased intensity of the workouts. Although some sites claim that these programs also automatically change the incline of the treadmill, the incline can be changed only manually!
Long story short - great entry-level treadmill for home use. It comes with many features that are reserved for more expensive models and if its shortcomings don't bother you, consider this model.
