Reviews around assembly (4.64 of 5)

  • Assembly was easy and I was able to do it without another person
  • Relatively easy assembly as long as you follow the instructions.
  • The speakers are decent, the power cord could be another foot or two longer, the heart rate sensors don't really work, the folding mechanism works as advertised, assembly isn't too bad.
  • Assembly was easy, just make sure that all bolts are really tight
  • Assembly: Setting up the treadmill was not difficult

Reviews around feature (4.62 of 5)

  • It doesn't have any crazy features or anything (which is the way I wanted it, nice and simple) so hopefully that means that the electronics will be fairly reliable
  • Super easy to fold up if needed - the hydraulic arm is a nice feature
  • I also love the i-pod hookup, that is another nice bonus!I also LOVE the pause feature
  • The features on this treadmill are easy to use and I love being able to set my kindle fire on the rack and watch TV/Movies while running
  • An unexpected positive feature of the treadmill is its built-in USB port.

Reviews around product (4.33 of 5)

  • I would recommend this product if you are looking for a home gym with a real gym quality.
  • This product broke within a year of purchase, with limited use, and then again a couple of times in the following years.
  • I slowed it back down to 3.2 after I was jogging for 12 minutes and that was when I truly realized what a great product this was.5
  • I always think those "expert installers" are the same ones that assembled the run down and broken c*&^% that you see on display at the onsite stores with pieces hanging off.
  • Simple in design and function, coupled with a very quiet motor and great feel belt equates into a very nice product

Reviews around run (4.19 of 5)

  • I always think those "expert installers" are the same ones that assembled the run down and broken c*&^% that you see on display at the onsite stores with pieces hanging off.
  • We haven't had a chance to actually give it a good test run.
  • After running for a minute, I can get a small shock by touching any of the metal parts.
  • I enjoy walking while working, and also getting a good run in here and there
  • I have actually went from steady running to interval training and I enjoy it more

Reviews around quality (4.18 of 5)

  • All of the other brands of comparable price sounded pretty crappy, spiced up with extra frills to hide the poor quality underneath
  • (and the other brands of good quality were more like $2,000 and up)
  • Shopped around for the best pricing on a good quality treadmill.
  • This treadmill rivals those high quality ones at the gym.
  • Overall, it's good quality for the money, just not a ton of console functionality.

Reviews around build (4.05 of 5)

  • The built-in speakers are lackluster and the line-out jack introduces a loud hissing noise.
  • Now the positive, Item seems really well built and runs very quietly.
  • Similarly, I've ended up using it in manual mode most of the time - the built-in programs just were not well thought out and not worth trying to figure out
  • Its sturdy, well built and quite compared to others we've owned
  • We are getting static build-up which is from the friction between the belt and our shoes.

Reviews around weather (2.33 of 5)

  • I abuse the heck out of this machine and it still runs as good as when I got it.
  • I haven't used the treadmill much yet because it is a foul-weather
  • If I get a few years out if it, I'll have gotten more than my money's worth, and I don't even have to comb my hair to go out to the gym when the weather is bad.-----------After a couple of months of using this, the plastic housing around the belt began to rattle a bit.
  • /wk wanted something to start training on while the weather is still crappy (I'm in Michigan
  • I prefer running outside but, this is very convenient, especially with bad weather.

Reviews around side rail (2.28 of 5)

  • The machine works as of
  • There are redundant controls for speed and lift on the side rails as well
  • I explained the issue, and without hesitation, the rep told me he would be sending a tech out to my house, as well as send a new motor and belt to my house free of charge.
  • I abuse the heck out of this machine and it still runs as good as when I got it.
  • I have had to put some foam in between where the hood and the side rail meet on the left side of the treadmill because of rather annoying creaking with every step without the foam.

Reviews around information (2.28 of 5)

  • The owners manual lacks some details, but the customer service is excellent and provides all the missing information
  • It's like smart phone small and doesn't provide you with, what I consider, critical information: pace (minutes/mile), total elevation climbed, etc.- It only comes with 1 membership for the health partner account
  • I abuse the heck out of this machine and it still runs as good as when I got it.
  • The display screen is small and lacks basic information that I feel is fairly standard on most other treadmills.
  • I explained the issue, and without hesitation, the rep told me he would be sending a tech out to my house, as well as send a new motor and belt to my house free of charge.

  • The machine works as of
  • Not to mention the cheap plastic covering the handles likes to creak a lot when you grab onto them giving it a very lackluster feel.

Reviews around box (1.49 of 5)

  • Easy setup, may not work out of box, EXCELLENT customer service (thus far), and a very quality unit as far as my running needs.
  • It arrived exactly on time and was well packaged (crate and boxes were a challenge to dispose)
  • Not hard to assemble but took a while to figure out as it is all in the box and hard to move in general
  • The delivery guys told me that I should take it apart and move it piece by piece, but after almost ruining the box getting it open I saw that nothing comes off
  • (The box was very dirty from being in a warehouse and on the delivery truck.

Reviews around doe (1.47 of 5)

  • Loosening the screws on the motor cover really does eliminate the noise problem
  • The newer one does not work and I am not getting any support from the manufacturer
  • One of the two speakers on the console also does not work, but I am getting the run around from customer service on getting it fixed
  • It isn't too loud or anything - but does produce some noise when in motion.
  • A tad expensive for a elementary treadmill, does not even automatically go into sleep-mode have to unplug it td switch off the screen

  • I have lost 18 pounds in three months since purchasing it.
  • I'm kind of hoping I actually lose a pound or two in the mean time.

Reviews around screw (1.00 of 5)

  • I called customer service because 2 little screws were missing and 1 of the main bolts wouldn't fit in the column.
  • Assembly took some effort, those little black screws were difficult to work with.
  • Just make sure to look at the pieces and notice the screws are there before spending 5 minutes searching for the "missing" screws
  • Third-as mentioned before, the bad screws on the back plate of the console and the somewhat thin feeling hollow sounding deck, plus the heart rate monitor that doesn't work.
  • All other pieces I have to note, to be fair, fit perfectly and easily for me, so, actually it was doubly surprising that those last screws gave me trouble since all other pieces fit so well.

  • The built-in speakers are lackluster and the line-out jack introduces a loud hissing noise.
  • you may think the noise it generates at 6mph is too loud
  • It started making a squeaking noise about 2 weeks into using it.
  • With more than a year, now motor started shaking, the noise is loud, conveyor belt became not smooth, have a clear sense of the pulse, the vibrating of the rules of frequency, by using silicone oil lubrication, the question remains, we suspect that the motor, or a drive shaft Chen internal steel ball broke
