What We Love About the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill:

Upper Body WorkoutWeslo-Crosswalk-Treadmill-5-2t

The best feature on the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill is the upper body resistance arms that ensure a full body workout. When you’re running at top speeds, your arms are pumping and getting a workout. However, when you’re walking your arms swing naturally at your side with no effort and intensity. The Crosswalk t5.2t Treadmill is changing that by providing pivoting resistance arms that you can use to add intensity to your workout. These arms ensure you are always working your upper body and you’re going to feel it in your shoulders and arms when you’re done. We like that the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill didn’t stop with the usually treadmill design and was looking for a way to set itself apart.

What Isn’t So Great:

Quality

The biggest issue we have with the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill is its overall quality. Putting this treadmill together you can tell that the pieces are lightweight and no the most durable components that you’ve every handled. Some of the pieces are plastic and feel very cheap. Once assembled and running, the treadmill is very loud for such a small motor, which makes us believe it’s working in overload to get the job done. This is even more worrisome when you take a look at the very poor 90 day parts and labor warranty that Weslo provides. It doesn’t make us feel all warm and fuzzy about Welso’s confidence in the Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill.

Heart Rate MonitoringWeslo-Crosswalk-5-2-t-Treadmill

As you drop in the lower price brackets for treadmills, your ability to monitor your heart rate is going to disappear. At this price point you still have the ability, but Weslo chose to provide the option by way of a thumb sensor on the Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill. Even at this price range, this is a cheap way of doing so. Most of the competition provides grip sensors on the handlebars to monitor your heart rate. As inaccurate as grip sensors are, a thumb sensor is even less accurate. Additionally, it’s even harder to keep your thumb on the sensor while running or walking.

Final Word on the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill:

If your two requirements for a treadmill are a unique design to provide a full body workout and to save money, then the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill might be for you. We do like the resistance arms that keep your upper body engaged whether you’re walking or running. We don’t however like the cheap construction of this treadmill and it has us worried that Weslo is all too familiar with the same issue by providing one of the worst warranties on the market for the Crosswalk 5.2t Treadmill.
