We have had this treadmill for about a month and have been very pleased so far.

It is very sturdy and quiet, even when running at high speeds.

The controls are easy to use and the programs are great when you have specific training in mind for the day (intervals, etc.).

We would recommend this treadmill if you are looking for something you can really run on that is of great quality and a reasonable price.

Great customer service, too!










I got my treadmill a little over a week ago. The Shipping was really quick.

The delivery guy was very nice and even offered to bring it inside my place even though I paid for curb side only. He said it was too hot to be dealing with a heavy item like this. Great service there!

Once inside I moved the box back to my room and started assembling it with a friend. Only took a hour roughly and was super easy.

Fired it up right away and had no problems. Used it for a quick 10 minutes to test it out and everything was great.

Since then I logged many miles on it and its sturdy and reacts quick to my adjustments in speed and incline.

Customer Service was great as well! I definitely would buy this again and recommend it to my friends and family!
