Woodway Desmo S TreadmillWoodway Desmo S Treadmills
Our treadmills: “Worth the investment!” (Your joints will thanks us!)

Each treadmill is custom designed with our patented running surface and ball bearing system. The running surface is made from rubber T-slats giving you the ultimate cushion and softness, while maintaining the natural biomechanics of your stride. This cushion surface almost eliminates the force of impact with each foot strike whereas conventional treadmills have a cotton and nylon belt stretched across a wood surface making the running surface hard and less straining on joints, muscles, and tendons.

Successful athletes are the result of hard work, determination, and focus. Woodway is dedicated to providing you with the same.
