Woodway Desmo S: Ultra-durable treadmill with one-of-a-kind design. Likes: Smooth, durable, technologically advanced, stunning looks. Patented design (used by pro football teams) resembles tank treads, with a chain of rubberized slats circling around an oval rail track (not a fabric belt rolling over a wooden deck, like a standard treadmill). The motor is tucked inside the tread belt, so your foot cannot hit it. Its faster and steeper than anything else: 12.5 mph (upgradeable to 18 mph), and 15% incline (upgradeable to 22% and a negative incline of 3%). Dislikes: The five-figure price. (Just as solid, but not as attractive, is the entry-level Path at $7,000.) Requires an AC cord (not self-generating). Price: $10,330. 800-WOODWAY; www.woodway.com.
