Comfort

The solid and sturdy feel of a piece of exercise equipment is incredibly important. It affects how freely you feel you can move your body and most importantly how much you feel comfortable pushing yourself without worry that the machine will break or move.

The Reebok 1410 Treadmill is as solid as at-home gym treadmills come. It is exceptionally safe and does not move at all, even when you use it to its full capacity. You get a real quality feel with the 3.5 CHP Commercial Plus Motor and extremely well designed frame, in fact it is difficult to believe that a treadmill this solid is foldable.

The belt does not jerk and runs super smooth which is a real pleasure to run on, especially when combined with the ZigTech cushioning and the generous 20 x 60 inch running area.

This treadmill really is a true pleasure to run on and earns its $1500 dollar price tag on comfort alone.

 

Performance

Without using the iFit capabilities you’re well set up to improve and maximise your fitness levels on this piece of machinery. The performance features (aside from the iFit) are; 36 workout apps, 2 HD video workouts, various customization facilities and feedback capabilities.

The workout apps and videos are all well designed and make the most of the machines various technical features. The polar chest strap reader is particularly useful as the pulse grips don’t really offer an accurate heart rate reading whereas chest straps do. The basic feedback options are fine on the machine (calories, speed, distance etc) but better if you pay for iFit. The free iFit features are not particularly impressive and shouldn’t be considered a real selling point, however if you want to invest in the full iFit membership (around $100 dollars a year) you will see your workout horizons expand massively.

However, in this instance, the machine has so much to offer and is of such excellent quality for the price, you will have more than enough to keep you entertained, working hard and enjoying your workouts without the iFit feature.

 

Ease Of Use & Convenience

You’ll find the most challenging part of the machine usage comes when you get it delivered and have to A. get it in place and B. assemble it.

The package is extremely heavy and you’ll benefit from getting it placed exactly where you want to set it up and use it. The assembly can take a little time as you have all of the mechanical components to fix together and then the WIFI and android tablet to get set up as well.

Once you’re good to go the touch screen console and layout are all extremely easy to use and operate. The one problem you may have is the front deck below the console is quite far forward which is a little inconvenient when you stay close to the handlebars during use or when you first start walking on the machine. Your feet can start to catch a little bit if you’re not careful and it can be a little irritating when you forget to limit your forward stride.

 

Entertainment

Your entertainment options on this machine come in the form of an Android powered browser and the Intermix Acoustics 3.0 Sound System.

The browser is great but does restrict certain websites which is something you should check with the manufacturer before you purchase if you had a particular website you wanted to view during your workouts. The screen is also so small that, you do struggle to view much on the browser; this also renders the HD videos and iFit capabilities a little less impressive than if they were displayed on a larger screen.

The iPod compatible sound system works OK and provides an adequate sound quality for your workout.

 

Warranty

  • Frame and Motor- Lifetime
  • Parts- 5 years
  • Labour- 2 years

 

The Final Verdict

Without all the bells and whistles the Reebok 1410 Treadmill is worth $1500 for its exceptional quality mechanics and frame alone. From the moment you step on the machine you don’t question the fantastic design and strength of the motor and frame. Without iFit you’re perfectly able to enjoy plenty of customization features and great workouts on an extremely comfortable machine. With the iFit capabilities included you’re able to enjoy an amazing app on an amazing machine.

Purchase if you want long lasting, exceptional comfort and quality at an incredibly reasonable price.
