Treadmill Reviews

Image Treadmills by Icon

The Image brand of treadmills is bought to you by the company Icon Health & Fitness. Icon is one of the largest manufacturers of fitness equipment and the brands in its stable include well renowned brands such as Reebok, Weslo, NordicTrack and Healthrider.

There may be a perception that the Image brand is not so well known as other brands. The fact is that Image treadmills provide quality at a price that is much lower than the other brands of Icon.

Image treadmills are available from arrange that starts at a little above $500 and goes up to $2000. These prices are undoubtedly attractive, considering you are getting a brand that is supported by Icon Health & Fitness. In spite of such low costs, there is no compromise on quality and these treadmills are built to last and aimed at home users. A number of Image models have been favorably reviewed by experts in physical fitness magazines.

Most of the models feature the attractive SpaceSaver ® design and are ifit.com® compatible. They have multiple workout programs, variable speeds, incline, and tread sizes that provide users with sufficient leg and elbow room.

The iFit technology allows you to program workouts with the help of internet downloads from the web, or with your own CDs or video recordings. The motor is not as powerful as generally found in many other treadmill brands and it runs at an upper limit of a maximum of 1.75 H.P. However, novices and moderate users will find that this speed is quite all right for normal workouts.

One of the disadvantages is the short warranty periods on the motors and the 90 days warranty on parts.  This is one area that could be improved upon as a number of discerning buyers consider warranty as a very important criterion before purchasing a treadmill.

Nevertheless, Image treadmills are an attractive buy for the home user. Do consider the Image brand of treadmills before you finally make a decision.
