Frame construction

The OMA 1012EB treadmill features a frame made of steel tubing. Its base tubes are rectangular while the upright posts that hold the console are oval. The two upright bars are also adjustable. The top section with the console can be set higher or lower. Also, when folding the treadmill, you can extend the section with the console so that it folds all the way down alongside the deck. This way the machine becomes very slim (approx. 5″) so you can store it under a bed, or upright leaning against a wall.

This OMA treadmill is not super large. Its footprint is approx. 58.1″L x 32.7″W (147 x 83 cm) so it can fit pretty well even into a small room. It still is recommended, though, to leave at least two feet of clearance on each side of the machine, and at least three feet of clearance at the back of the deck for safe usage and easy access.

The machine is not too heavy either. Its net weight is 91.5 lbs (41.5 kg) though, so it may require to persons to transport it while in the box. However, once it is removed from the box and assembled, it can easily be handled and moved by only one person. It has transport wheels at the front. It also rests on adjustable levelers with large rubber pads which prevent it from sliding on the floor.

Last but not least, the machine also integrates several parts made from durable thermoplastic material. The most notable ones are the covers of the side rails, the motor cover, and several other small covers.

Deck construction

First of all, the OMA 1012EB treadmill does not have an incline system. When unfolded and in usage position, the machine offers a neutral, horizontal walking/running platform. Its also not recommended to adjust the incline of the deck through improvisations.

The machine’s deck is cushioned. Although the shock absorption elements are not visible on the sides, the running platform does have several; they are concealed by the deck’s side rail covers. Plus, the deck board itself has a bit of flex to it. Therefore, a walk or run on this treadmill results in considerably less impact on your joints.

The integrated tread belt also adds up to the machine’s overall shock absorption. It’s an 8-layer belt with the top layer rubberized for improved contact. The diameter of the rollers is not specified. However, they are crowned and have high-grade internal ball bearings for smooth motion and for improved traction.

The treadmill offers a fairly decent running surface. Its active area is 48″ (122 cm) long, and 17.7″ (45 cm) wide. This being said, it should be able to accommodate users up to 6’2″ – 6’3″ (188 – 190 cm) allowing a complete range of motion. It’s also rated for a maximum user weight limit of 300 lbs (136 kg) which is not bad for a home-use machine.

Last but not least, the belt step-up height is approx. 4.5″ (11 cm). Therefore, since the treadmill does not have an incline system, ceiling height should not be a problem. It is still recommended, though, to place and use this machine in a room with a ceiling that is at least 10″ (25 cm) higher than the tallest user.

Drive motor

The OMA 1012EB treadmill is an electric, motorized treadmill. This being said, you have to connect it to a power source. It comes with a power cord featuring a US standard power plug. The cable connects to the front base of the trainer.

The treadmill is equipped with a 2.25 HP peak power motor. It offers a speed range between 0.6 MPH and 8.7 MPH and is designed to provide a continuous belt motion during prolonged workouts. It also integrates a small flywheel for improved motion stability.

The speed adjustment increments are 0.1 MPH. This being said, the transition from a level to another is done smoothly without jerks or sudden changes, so you can easily adapt your pace. The speed can only be adjusted gradually. There are no quick speed selection keys on the console. For example, you can’t select 3 MPH or 6 MPH instantly as is the case for the XTERRA TR200. You can only adjust the speed gradually, from the + / – keys available on the console, or from the ones integrated into the machine’s left handgrip.

The motor itself is fairly quiet. It doesn’t generate a lot of noise when in use. However, depending on your weight, fitness equipment, running technique, type of floor, and other factors, your cadence may generate more or less noise. So, especially when running, other people will hear you using the treadmill. Also, since it isn’t an extremely powerful motor, you won’t have to worry about a high electricity bill even if you use the machine daily.

Console and accessories

The OMA 1012EB treadmill is equipped with a minimalistic console featuring an LED display divided into two sub-sections. The section on the left shows the number of steps, calories burned, and distance. The section on the right shows pulse, time, and speed. The pulse reading function is grip only. In other words, the console can only read your pulse if you hold on to the sensors integrated into the machine’s handgrips. It cannot read pulse from a wireless HR chest strap.

The console unit does not have Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity, and it is not compatible with any fitness apps. However, it has 36 pre-set programs which you can access from the P key on the left. Each program has its own specific speed segment layout. Evidently, when a program is in use, the treadmill will automatically change the speed depending on the current segment. Each program has a default duration of 30 minutes, but this can be changed.

The console also has target settings (or countdown modes) for time, distance, and calories burned. If you select a target for any of these workout metrics, it will count down from the selected value until it reaches zero. This way, you can monitor your progress better and push your limits with every workout session.

Since the OMA 1012EB features a minimalistic console, it does not have built-in speakers, a cooling fan, or other similar features. It also lacks the large console dashboard with moulded trays. But nonetheless, a bottle holder is included with it and you can attach it to the side of the upright bars. A tablet holder is also included.

Assembly and Maintenance

This OMA treadmill comes almost completely assembled. All you have to do is unfold its two upright bars with the console and secure them into the usage position, then plug the machine in. This shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. The manual provides clear instructions for the task and all the necessary tools are included.

For maintenance, it is recommended to keep the belt clean to prevent any dirt or textile fibers from being caught in the motor. The belt requires lubrication; the manual provides all the necessary instructions for it and lubricant is included.
