Yowza Keewadin (Folding)

Editor's Rating: 7.8/10
Update: This model has been discontinued. To find a suitable replacement, check out our treadmill finder here.

Yowza Fitness manufactures two high-quality folding treadmills: the Biscayne and the Keewadin. The Keewadin model is the more advanced of the two. It can reach speeds of 11 mph (compared with the Biscayne’s 10 mph) and has enhanced shock absorption. The Keewadin also takes up a bit more space than the Biscayne.

What We Like

  • Motor: The Keewadin’s quiet 3.0 CHP motor with precision flywheel provides excellent power for runners.
  • Console: Just like the Biscayne, the Keewadin treadmill’s ergonomically designed console has a quick start button, single-touch resistance adjustment, and quick speed and incline control buttons. You’ll also find cup holders, hi-fidelity speakers, an iPod dock, and a 3-speed fan. A grip pulse monitor and wireless heart rate monitors are included too.
  • Tracks: The Keewadin track is 60”x20”, which is long enough and wide enough for all but the largest runners. Its “whisper-quiet” multi-ply track provides better durability than the single-ply tracks used by other companies.
  • Deck: With triple phenolic lamination, the reversible Yowza Keewadin deck is designed for a lifetime of virtually maintenance-free use.
  • Warranties: Yowza’s excellent standard warranty includes: a lifetime guarantee on the motor and frame; 5 years on parts; and 2 years of in-home labor. Additional service plans are offered for a fee.

Our Verdict

The Keewadin treadmill fits all the basics of a great treadmill into a fold-able design. Useful extras include an adjustable fan, an iPod deck, and sturdy handrails with rubber grips. A great warranty package should also instill buyer confidence.
