Ironman Treadmills

Ironman Treadmills

Ironman treadmills are known to be of excellent value especially when you can get them on sale.

Numerous features and great designs are also things you would expect from the Ironman brand.

Are They Made For You?

This brand is offering treadmills that belong in the low to mid-priced range category. However, it is their cheaper models that are really catching people’s attention. So if you’re looking for an affordable quality treadmill, then this brand can give you a few to choose from.

The Company Behind the Brand

Ironman is another brand owned and manufactured by Keys Fitness, a company located in Garland, Texas. Keys only started producing treadmills in 1997, but they have been in the fitness industry for some time now selling dumbbells and other strength training products.

All their manufacturing jobs are done in the U.S. but in order to stay competitive, they import most of their component parts overseas. As a result, some of their previous machines have had some quality issues.

At present, Keys Fitness owns at least 6 treadmill brands with each of them catering different needs and budgets. These brands include Alliance, Encore, and HealthTrainer just to name a few. It is also the manufacturer of Smooth treadmills (but they don’t own it), which are primarily sold over the internet.

Price Range

As I’ve mentioned above, Ironman treadmills are usually low to mid-priced machines. They range from as low as $800 to as high as $1,500. But they also have a few premium treadmills that are priced for $2,000.

The Warranty

Just like their other brands, Keys Fitness is also offering their classic 10 year motor warranty in all Ironman units. (even the cheap ones) Other warranties include lifetime for frames, 2 years for parts and 1 year for labor.

What Ironman Lacks…

Like most brands from Keys Fitness, the biggest weakness of these machines is their finish quality. Other than that, these are good treadmills to own.

Recommendation

If you can get them on sale, I would recommend those lower priced Ironman treadmills. These cheaper models are usually an excellent bargain when sold at a discounted price.


Where to Buy?

If you want to buy Ironman treadmills I suggest you buy from Amazon.com. Also, you might want to visit your local Costco/Target outlets to get the best deal possible.
