Ironman M5 Treadmill Review

Ironman M5 Treadmill

Ironman M5 Treadmill

Update: This treadmill has been discontinued.

To look for an alternative, you might want to check out our best treadmill page.

The Ironman M5 treadmill is Ironman’s best model yet.

It has everything you could expect from a mid-priced treadmill and more. Also, Cosco usually has this at a discounted price of just $1,199, which makes this the best deal you can get under $1,200.

Is This Treadmill Right for You?

If you want a mid-priced treadmill without a mid-priced price tag, then this model would be your best option. But I must warn you, you might have a hard time locating a dealer who will sell this unit to you at a discounted price.

Features and Benefits

This Ironman model offers 2.75HP continuous duty motor that has a speed range of 0-10 miles per hour and an incline range of 0-12 percent for maximum workout intensity. It also comes with a big 20-inch x 56-inch running surface thus allowing you to exercise with comfort and convenience.

The 4 preset, 8 custom, 2 user (create your own hill profile) and 1 heart rate programs give you more variety in your workouts. The OneTouch™ speed and incline controls make adjusting your workout as easy as possible. Plus, the heart rate chest strap is perfect for those who love to run in their target heart rate zone.

And best of all, it still offers the generous motor warranty, Keys Fitness owned brands are known for, which is 10 years. Other warranties include lifetime for frames, 2 years for parts and a year for labor.

The biggest weakness of this model is its quality. Just like other Ironman treadmills, the manufacturer (Keys Fitness) of this machine used cheap parts to reduce cost but this also resulted in below average quality. But overall, this unit still provides great value for your money, especially when on sale.


I would recommend the Ironman M5 treadmill if you can get it at the discounted $1,200 price tag. If you can’t, this is still a good machine to own but I think the Smooth 7.1HR is a better choice at the $1,500 price range.
