question for you


Hi there,

I purchased a Bodyguard Fitness Radisson treadmill perhaps 5 or 6 years ago. It has rarely been used and is in excellent condition.

How much would you think it is currently worth?

Thanks for your help!

6 year old Bodyguard Raddison model with 2600 miles so far.

by Peter Wolf
(Newport News, VA)

We purchased the Bodyguard Raddison model in 2004. Even though I've grown tired of this model, it has faithfully served our purpose. It is a solid machine with no hint that it may be tired of doing its job. All the functions still work, no burned out lights even though it stays on 24/7. The plastic glued on part of the console came loose and I finally glued it back together after 4 years. Other than scraping a mouse carcass off the roller, (poor thing must have thought the belt was a nest.) this thing won't die. My model was made in Canada before the company's 2008 move to China.

Things I like:
1)Durability on belt and all the components.
2)Relatively quietness compared to other models at same speeds.
3)Non-folded frame with solid construction and a small footprint.
4)Simple design, however, this is also a negative as seen below.
5)Warranty was ahead of its competitors at the time, but now considered normal.
6)No visible wear on the belt, top side or underside.
7)No maintenance is required other than consumer level maintenance requiring no additional products or parts. I've centered the belt on rare occasions. Oh and I've opened it up to vacuum some dust out and to lubricate the height adjustment screw once.


Things that make me want a new treadmill:
1)It only has an 18" belt. I've come close to stepping on the frame a few times.
2)Only speeds up to 10MPH making interval workouts peak at that speed.
3)Only came standard with a front bar below the console and parallel to it. Expensive side handlebars are optional.
4)No program buttons or quick speed or elevation buttons. This requires constant pressing of the up or down arrows for speed or elevation. Speed changes in .1 MPH increments each press. Holding the button speeds the process up however.

All in all, the bells and whistles are VERY limited on this model, but also has made this model have zero problems in nearly 7 years. All belt adjustments are easy to make but just following the instructions from the manual.

Bodyguard Radisson bought in 2002

by Signe

This has been an excellent machine. I spent a lot of time researching prior to purchasing. I just checked the stats and discovered I have only used it about 108 times or 216 miles in all these years. I am going to sell it as it doesn't make sense to keep - when I use it so little. Would anyone have any idea what I should expect to get for it? It is like new, stored properly, no pets ever, non-smoking house, maintained by periodically vacuuming out the motor area and it is kept on a rubber mat. I paid a little more than $1800.00 with tax. If you are looking at buying a new one, I have nothing but good things to say about this brand and think its history speaks for itself, just wish I had used mine more....

Ask at least $600, no less, it's worth it.
by: Peter Wolf

I would ask $600.

I have one of these models and it's worth the price, but people also see newer models with more bells and whistles like TV, ipod connections, quick acting buttons, etc.

They fear that a 6 year old model won't last them, but in truth, it will outlast most newer models at a sporting goods store.

We have 2600 miles on our model with no problems.

No burned out lights even though it's on 24/7.

It has done everything we have asked it to do flawlessly for 6 years plus.

Remember, this model was made when that model was ranked very high for its price point. It was manufactured in Canada vice China as the newer models are.
