Reebok Treadmills Reviewed

Reebok Treadmills

Should You buy?

I have to admit... Reebok treadmills are not cheap. Their prices are a little too expensive compared to similar entry level treadmills from other brands.

But they have something others don't... a brand that people trust and are familiar with.

If you're a Reebok loyalist who's willing to pay more for a treadmill because of its name, then this review might interest you. However, if you're someone who's a little price conscious and would like to get real value for your money, then you're better off choosing another brand. (see our best treadmill page)

The Company Behind These Treadmills

Like most known brands, Reebok exercise equipment are also being created by the largest manufacturer and marketer of exercise equipment in the world, which is Icon Health and Fitness. Icon holds hundreds of patents and patent applications pending.

Reebok Competitor RT 8.0 Treadmill

Reebok also holds several trademarks both in the United States and in other foreign countries. They have invested millions in developing state-of-the-art production, research and development, distribution and reporting systems to quickly design and engineer new product enhancements.

These treadmills were "designed for clubs, made for the home". But don't be confused by commercial treadmills carrying the Reebok brand. Only those treadmills made for home use came from Icon. Reebok treadmills for club comes from a different manufacturer.

Reason Why People Buy Reebok

The biggest reason why people choose to buy this company's treadmills is the name. It's only logical to buy from someone that you trust. Plus, you can be sure that the company would be here to stay if ever you'll need their services years from now.

How Much Does it Cost?

Ofcourse, as with almost all well-known brands come overpriced products. Reebok's machines are no exemption. They are priced between $1,000 to $1,300, which is higher compared to similar entry level models offered by other companies.

Another thing to take note is that Treadmill doctor, an expert in treadmill assessment, states that "there are some serious compromises in component construction" of the company's treadmills.

Do I Recommend It?

After all my research regarding the company and its machines, I wouldn't recommend Reebok treadmills. I believe that there are less expensive treadmills in the market that can match the features, quality and warranty that Reebok offers.(check out our best recommended treadmill section)

However, if you're a loyal Reebok customer who just so happened to also have the money to spend, then who am I to stop you. The company does have a good brand reputation, that's something I can't argue with.


Where To Buy Reebok Treadmills?

If even after reading my recommendation you still would want to purchase a treadmill from Reebok, then Reebok store on amazon is one internet retailer I recommend.
