PaceMaster Bronze Basic Treadmill Review

PaceMaster Bronze Basic Treadmill

A treadmill being manufactured by a company that has a reputation in making quality machines, the PaceMaster bronze basic treadmill is one of the best you can buy below $2,000.

Is This for You?

This treadmill is perfect for everyone. However, compared to other quality treadmills in its price range, this treadmill weighs a bit light. So if you want a treadmill with a more solid feel, this machine isn’t for you. May I suggest you visit our best buy treadmills page and choose a treadmill that suits you best.

Its Benefits...

The 3.0 HP continuous duty McMillan motor offers you power which are mostly found on treadmills above $2,000. This motor can give you a maximum speed of 11 mph and provide an intense workout to even the veteran runners.

The PaceMaster bronze basic treadmill can be inclined to up to 15%. This gives you more control on the intensity of your workouts. And the 1000 lbs of elevation thrust makes sure that the treadmill won’t have a hard time elevating no matter how heavy the user, thus, ensuring it would incline with minimal noise.

The stretch resistant 2 ply Texglide treadbelt is rated for 10,000 miles. Ensuring a maintenance free, high quality treadbelt for a very long time.

The running deck is made up of custom designed, medium density fiberboard with phenolic surface. The phenolic helps keep the deck lubricated and extends its life.

The 2.5" precision ground steel rollers with permanently lubricated sealed bearings allow for less tightening of the treadbelt and decrease tension and friction. This minimizes the time spent on adjusting belt tracking while at the same time extending the life of the deck, belt and bearings.

The Tri-Flex Impact Shock Management System gives PaceMaster bronze basic treadmill users maximum shock absorption. This cushions impact on the ankles, knees, hips and backs which is perfect for those coming off an injury and those trying to prevent one from happening.

The PaceMaster bronze basic offers 4 workout programs (conditioning, weight loss, stamina and interval) and each of them has 9 levels of intensity. Also, it offers a quick start and manual program options for those in need to start a workout immediately. These features were included to give you more flexibility and variety in your workouts.

The four 0.56” tall LEDs displays your time, speed, distance, incline, calories, and aerobic points to help you keep track of your workouts.


The PaceMaster bronze basic treadmill has a lifetime warranty for its frame, 12 years for drive motor, 5 years for parts and a year for labor. These warranties are some of the best in its price range. Showing just how much the company is behind their products.

What Experts Didn’t Like…

The only weakness found on this unit is its frame. It is built with an aluminum frame, which is lighter than steel frames so some users might not get the solid feel one would expect from a quality treadmill.


I do recommend the PaceMaster bronze basic treadmill. However, I suggest you try running on it first before buying. If the light weight feel doesn’t bother you that much then this treadmill is definitely a great buy.

Where to Buy?

I’m currently having a hard time locating an internet retailer carrying the PaceMaster bronze basic treadmill. So for now, I suggest you locate a dealer near you through PaceMaster. It is being sold for just $1,699.
