Keys Treadmills

Keys Treadmills

Keys treadmills offer great motor warranties and nice features.

And, most of them are mid-priced treadmills so most people can afford it.

Are They For You?

This brand would fit those looking for a mid-priced treadmill with an excellent motor warranty, which is 10 years. This is pretty good considering most of these machines belong in the mid price range category.

The Company Behind the Treadmills

Keys Fitness, a company located in Garland, Texas, is the manufacturer and owner of Keys treadmills. They have 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 machines have some quality issues.

At present, Keys Fitness owns at least 6 treadmill brands with each of them catering for different needs and budgets. These brands include Alliance, Encore, and Ironman just to name a few. It is also the treadmill manufacturer of Smooth fitnesss(but they don't own it), a company that sells treadmills over the internet.

Price Range Category

The price tag of these machines range from as little as $1,000 and as high as $2,300. For this price, you’ll get a 10 year motor warranty and a lifetime warranty on frames.

Weakness...

The biggest weakness of Keys Fitness brands is their fit and finish quality. But other than that, they are decent treadmills to own.

Recommendation

Although this brand is known for having poor fit and finish quality, new models have been showing some improvements. If their progress continues, I would probably end up recommending this brand but for now, I can’t recommend Keys treadmills yet.
