A First Look At The Bowflex Treadmills

Nautilus Fitness, one of the premiere manufacturers of health and fitness products in the country also runs a subsidiary organization which sells Bowflex branded treadmills. Bowflex, along with Schwinn, Trimline and Stairmaster make Nautilus the second biggest name in health and fitness products industry. Bowflex has products in both home and semi professional segments. Bowflex treadmills are priced economically. They start at $1100 and go up to $1999.

The Bowflex treadmills are available in three series of models. There is the 3 series, 5 series and 7 series. The main factor behind the success of Bowflex is that these machines are quite a looker. The designs are sleek yet the frame of these treadmills is very sturdy.  The machines do not come with low power motors either. The basic model comes with 1.75 hp and it goes high up to 3hp. Another important thing is that all Bowflex treadmills come with heart rate monitoring and program modes.

A unique feature of Bowflex treadmills is that these machines come with a special deck suspension system called the Strike Zone. The Strike Zone system provides strategically placed cushioning to ensure the least fatigue and most effective results from the time you spend at the treadmill. Some high end models also come with on board fans.

Bowflex treadmills do not try to cut a slack on the warranties either. The treadmills come with a 1 year warranty over workmanship. The electronic systems and almost all the parts come with a two year warranty. The motor of Bowflex treadmills comes with a decade long warranty and the frame of Bowflex treadmills comes with a generous fifteen year warranty.

On the negative side, Bowflex treadmills can not be co0nsidered noiseless. The devices make their presence heard and this might sometimes get too annoying. Another aspect which might not exactly be considered a drawback is that you might find better options in the same price if you look carefully.

Bowflex treadmills are the best suited for the people who are ready to pay a moderate amount of money but want their spending to be fully justified. This is where Bowflex comes with flying colors.
