Beginner Treadmill

I have had this treadmill for 5 years now.

My husband and I have used it fairly regularly over that time period.

It has been stored in a non climate controlled garage in western Washington.

Until recently we had not needed to do any maintenance on it.

We have used it for pack test training, 45 lbs 45 minutes 3 mile walk as well as training for a half marathon.

I’d guesstimate we have put a mile on it a day (combined-walking/running) over the five year period we have owned it.

This has been a great treadmill for us.

I am just now looking into maintenance, that I should have done regularly, because we have moved and it feels quite loud.

So I’m looking into cleaning and lubricating the belt and placing it on a mat in our new garage, to absorb the impact of our running on it.

It still has plenty of life left in it. I would absolutely recommend this treadmill.


Thank you for sharing your experience. Sounds like a great return on your investment. That's the way it should be.

Thank you!

Just get a BodyCraft Treadmill. Your paying for the same quality as LifeFitness or Precor home treadmills but not the high name price tag. A private company with AMAZING customer support if ever needed.
A few friends of mine have their weight machines over 10 years old used almost every day. My personal weight machine I purchased in 2003 and the same machine I have seen in many hotels. Now their treadmills are just as amazing. Simple but SOLID. A local Gym just got a few of their treadmills over a year ago and just added a few more. A top priority for me in 2021 is to save my $$ for one in my home.
Thanks, that's all.
