It’s not a commercial treadmill but does have a pretty sturdy construction. Plus, it is compatible with apps like Kinomap and AnyRun for an improved running experience.

The OMA Fitness 6134EAI treadmill features a heavy-duty steel frame. It combines oval and rectangular tubing in its construction for improved sturdiness and aesthetics. All the steel parts are coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. The color used is black, this being the only color available for this machine, at least for the moment.
Of course, the treadmill also incorporates several parts made from durable thermoplastic material. Among them, we can count the main motor cover, the side deck covers, the top rail covers, and the console dashboard. All plastic parts are also black in order to fit the rest of the treadmill.
The OMA 6134EAI is a pretty sizeable treadmill. It is approx. 75.8″ (193 cm) long, and 36.4″ (92 cm) wide, while its highest point (given by the top of the console) is 69.7″ (117 cm). It is also recommended to leave at least two feet of clearance on each side of the deck, and at least three feet of clearance at its rear for ease of access and safe usage.
The machine is also foldable. Its deck can be folded up in order to provide better storage possibilities, maintenance, and cleaning. With the deck folded up, the unit’s footprint becomes 55.2″L x 36.4″W (140 x 92 cm). Also, the folding mechanism uses two hydraulic cylinders for extra support and for lowering the deck slowly when unfolded.
This OMA Fitness treadmill is also fairly heavy. Its net weight is 231 lbs (105 kg). Therefore, the transport of the packaged unit requires at least two people. However, once the machine is assembled, it can easily be moved by only one person as its front base integrates transport wheels.
Deck construction and incline
The OMA Fitness 6134EAI treadmill features a sturdy deck rated for a maximum user weight limit of 350 lbs (159 kg), which is not bad for a home-use treadmill. The internal deckboard consists of a tough HDF shell which also has a bit of flex. There are 6 shock-absorption elements integrated into the deck which considerably reduce the impact of your ride. This results in less workout-related pain, so a run on this treadmill is more forgiving on your joints and lower back.
The incorporated belt offers a running surface of 60″L x 20″W (152 x 51 cm). This being said, the machine should be able to accommodate users up to 6’5″ (196 cm) with no problem, allowing a complete stride. It has a multi-layer structure also designed to absorb some of the shock generated by each foot strike. Its top layer features an anti-slip pattern. The internal rollers have crowned design for improved traction and to prolong the lifespan of the belt. They also integrate high-grade bearings for a smooth motion.
The OMA 6134EAI treadmill is equipped with a motorized incline system. In other words, you can adjust the incline from the console, and the console can also adjust the incline automatically, depending on the program in use.
The incline system consists of a separate motor from the drive motor and a small lift situated at the front of the deck. When you adjust the incline, or when the treadmill adjusts the incline automatically, the lift slowly elevates the front part of the deck.
The treadmill makes available an incline range between 0% and 15%. The console has controls for both gradual incline adjustment and quick incline adjustment. The quick incline adjustment keys cover the 3%, 5%, 8%, and 12% positions.
Last but not least, the unit’s deck is not too slim. The step-up height is approx. 8″ (20 cm). Also, with the incline set to its maximum level, the front of the deck gains several inches. Therefore, it is recommended to use the machine in a room with a ceiling that is at least 15″ (38 cm) higher than your own height.
The OMA Fitness 6134EAI treadmill features a fairly decent 3.5 HP motor designed to support prolonged workouts without overheating or losing performance. It also incorporates a small flywheel. This element is meant to minimize vibration and promote a smooth movement for the belt. It offers a speed range between 0.5 and 12.5 MPH.
Just as for the incline, the console offers speed controls for gradual adjustment and quick selection adjustment. The gradual adjustment keys have a dual function. A short press adjusts the speed of the belt in increments of 0.1 MPH and if you press and hold them for 0.5 seconds, the speed will increase or decrease quickly. The quick selection speed controls are placed on the right side of the console. They offer a quick selection for 2 MPH, 5 MPH, 7 MPH, 10 MPH, or 4 kmh, 8 kmh, 12 kmh, 16 kmh, depending on the units you’re using.
The motor itself is not extremely loud. However, depending on your running technique, weight, and other factors, your cadence may generate more or less noise. Also, since the motor is not super powerful, the daily usage of the machine shouldn’t add too much to your electricity bill.
The OMA 6134EAI treadmill is equipped with a black/white dot matrix LED display. It indicates time, distance, calories burned, heart rate, speed, and incline. Speed and distance can be set either to English or Metric units. The pulse reading function is grip contact only. The console can only read your pulse if you hold on to the integrated sensors. It does not work with wireless HR chest straps.
The console unit has Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with the Kinomap and AnyRun apps. Therefore, you can track your progress online, follow scenic rides and routes based on various locations in the world, compete with other runners, benefit from various classes, and more.
In case you don’t want to use any of these fitness apps, the console still has you covered. It has 43 built-in programs to keep you motivated. The list includes 36 pre-set programs, 3 custom interval programs, 3 target programs, and 1 heart rate program. Most of the pre-set programs auto-adjust both the speed and incline. The interval programs are pre-set for the standard HIIT work/rest intervals. The target programs allow you to select workout goals for time, distance, and calories burned; if a target is selected for any of these metrics, the console will count down from the selected target until it reaches zero. And finally, the heart rate program adjusts the speed of the belt in an attempt to keep you within the selected heart rate interval. Needless to say, this program requires you to hold on to the integrated sensors.
Other notable console features include the device holders, the bottle & accessory trays, and the speakers. One device holder is placed under the console display and consists of a long shelf on which you can place a larger tablet. The other device holder attaches to the top of the console. The accessory trays are moulded into the console dashboard. And finally, the speakers have Bluetooth connectivity; thus, you can sync them with your smartphone or tablet in order to play your music through the machine’s console, or hear the instructions of a coach in case you’re following one of the programs provided by the fitness apps.
Assembly and Maintenance
The machine’s deck with the motors, belt, rollers and other internal parts comes pre-assembled. You only need to attach the two upright bars and the console with the two side grips. This shouldn’t take more than 20-30 minutes of your time. However, as we’ve mentioned above, the machine is pretty heavy, so this may require two people. The manual provides clear assembly instructions and all the necessary tools are included.
For maintenance, it is recommended to keep the machine clean, especially the belt, to prevent any dirt or debris from being caught into the motor or the rollers. The belt requires periodic lubrication with silicone treadmill oil. Other than this, you should also check for loose bolts and parts from time to time.
