The Spirit XT185 treadmill is the base or “entry-level” model of the Spirit treadmill lineup. While most dependable treadmills cost upwards of $2000, the Spirit line is more affordable and helps everyday people have a treadmill at home.

Spirit XT185 Treadmill

What you get

When searching for a quality treadmill that is also affordable, there are only a few companies that satisfy both requirements. The Spirit XT185 is an entry-level folding treadmill that has won the FitPROF Best Buy award for consecutive years because of its price point and performance. The XT185 has a 20×55″ running belt with a 2.75 HP motor, making it ideal for users who weigh 275lbs and below.

The Spirit XT185, as mentioned earlier, is a folding treadmill, and comes with integrated wheels for easy transport and storage. Its dimensions are 77 X 35 X 58″ and should fit comfortably in most desired locations. I’ve seen this model assembled in garages, basements, living rooms, and bedrooms.

In addition, its folding feature, along with lift-assist, makes it easy to store the XT185 out of the way of children and free up additional space when needed. Simply use the yellow lever on the rear of the XT185 to activate the lift-assist. It also has a Safe Drop feature, meaning the deck will slowly lower itself to the floor when activated.

The Spirit XT185 comes with a 7.5 LCD backlit console that displays Time, Distance, Speed, Elevation, Calories, Pace, Altitude, Laps, Segment Time, and Heart Rate. There are 6 presets for exercise which includes Hill, Fat Burn, Cardio, Strength, Interval, and manual. Additionally, the XT185 has a fan and a tablet “IPad” type reading rack.

You can adjust the speed on the XT185 between .5 to 10 mph, and the incline goes up to level 10. However, this must be done from the console as only the XT385 has the handlebar-mounted controls. Additionally, there are no Bluetooth or audio jacks on this model.


Assembly & Delivery

If you plan to put the Spirit XT185 upstairs, you may need some help, but getting it out of the box and cleaning up takes more time than the assembly. When you’ve got it out of the box, it’s only the console, shroud, and handlebar area that you need to assemble. I worked for a company in Seattle several years ago and had to assemble an XT385 model for the showroom floor. I had no experience with assembly and it took me about an hour – I’m sure you’ll be alright.

However, the supplier is offering free shipping at this time to the lower 48 States, and you can add assembly during checkout if you rather have someone else deal with it.


The Spirit XT185 has a lifetime in-home warranty. This means that the deck, motor, and frame have a lifetime warranty for manufacturer defects. There is a five-year warranty on parts and a one-year labor warranty. It’s a great warranty for a treadmill at this price point, which is one of the reasons Spirit is so popular.

Ideal Buyers

The ideal person for the XT185 is one who wants to do some light running, jogging, power walking, or those who want to crank up the incline early in the morning and burn some extra body fat. As a folding treadmill, it’s not really meant to take the harsh pounding of a Landice or True treadmill. Furthermore, keep in mind that this model has a 2.75 HP motor and has a 275lb max weight parameter. If you need something a little more durable, consider the XT285 model.

The Spirit treadmills have won the FITPROF best buy awards for consecutive years for a reason. The XT models are “budget” but are well constructed. Don’t go out and buy some random treadmill thinking you’re saving money. Check out the Spirit Brand Line-up
