- Patented suspension protects joints like no other treadmill

- Exclusively available in Australia at orbitfitness.com.au and Orbit Fitness stores
With so many treadmill options available in today it’s hard to know what separates the best from the rest.
Orbit Fitness was recently featured on the Channel 7 Morning Show to showcase the Yowza Chicago Treadmill, as we are the first and only fitness equipment provider to bring this innovative new treadmill from the US to Australia. It is available in Australia exclusively at Orbit Fitness stores and the Orbit Fitness website.
So what’s so great about it that we thought we have to make this treadmill available to the Australian public?
Patented new suspension feature protects joints
The Yowza Chicago Treadmill utilises a patented SWING ARM™ shock absorption system to minimise stress on your joints, giving your workout a much smoother result. Having a proper running surface is essential, as prolonged exposure to improper surfaces can have a negative long term effect on your lower body muscles and tendons, as well as your lower back.
The SWING ARM™ shock system absorbs the impact rather than sending the impact through the body, something called “force rebound”. The impact is lessened by the swing arm, deck, and frame of the treadmill, leaving you with a smooth fluid workout.
Burns up to 23% more calories
The Yowza Chicago treadmill is a leader in calories lost in comparison to traditional treadmills, with an increase of up to 23% more calories burned per workout due to the swing arm suspension.
With a traditional treadmill workout, a typical user will receive a higher peak intensity but shorter duration muscle contraction. However, with the patented SWING ARM™ workout, you will have lower peak intensity but longer duration muscle contraction.
More simply put, the lower peak but longer duration muscle contraction is preferable for fat burning. This gives the Yowza Chicago a sizable advantage in the amount of calories burned per workout of 14-23% more calories burned.
Acts like a personal trainer
The treadmill also utilises a fantastic Intelligent Weight Management (IWM) feature. Using the digital Bluetooth scales that comes free with the treadmill, your current body weight is wirelessly communicated to the treadmill which has your age, sex, height and BMI profile loaded. The Yowza Chicago then creates an exact calorie burning program tailor-made for your immediate use. And as you progress and go through the ups and downs of your fitness journey the program evolves with you.
Combines with the ‘myLiveLight’ app suite
The treadmill also combines with the ‘myLiveLight’ app suite, which includes a series of mobile apps that allow you to set up personal targets and weight loss goals through the Bluetooth connectivity. This allows the app to track your calorie intake, activity and weight loss through your mobile device and integrates with the IWM function.
Hands free motion control
With a small button generally the only option in place for users to adjust the speed of a workout, this can make runners feel quite unstable and off balance when attempting to adjust. The Yowza Chicago Treadmill utilises a dynamic hands free speed adjustment system, allowing you to change pace with the wave of your hand, making changing the speed both safer and easier.
The treadmill costs $2,499, including the Bluetooth scales. We ship Australia wide, and for a limited time, we are offering free delivery right across Western Australia.
