Comfort

The treadmill is an incredibly sturdy and solid machine that looks and feels like it isn’t going to budge when used at full capacity. The sturdy frame combined with the exceptional Zigtech cushioning means you feel safe and comfortable while you use this machine. Those with longer strides who like to use their treadmills full whack will be pleased with the ample treadbelt size of 20 x 60 inches which leaves plenty of room for all out sprints and stretched out strolls.

The fan is adequate and provides a nice breeze while you work out although you may find it’s a little too light if you use the machine for full powered exercise sessions.

Overall you can’t really fault the comfort, the machine runs smoothly, even on its highest incline and provides an excellent base to exercise on.

 

Performance

The performance on this machine comes in the way of; quickstep options, 15% maximum incline, 12 mph maximum speed, pulse sensors and chest strap monitor, 30 workout apps and iFit compatibility.

The 15 % incline on this treadmill means you have exceptional ability to really work those lower muscle groups and tone while you improve your heart rate. You may find you need to work up to the full incline and maximum 12 mph speed, but runners who really want to push their fitness will appreciate these features from the offset.

With the comfort of the belt and the quickstep options allowing you to customize your workouts you may not feel you need to use a workout program, however if you do decide to have the guesswork taken out of your session, you have a massive 30 preset programmes to enjoy which have been designed by a personal trainer. All in all you have everything available to allow you to enjoy intense, varied workouts at just the push of a button. The feedback capabilities are basic but include telemetry enabled chest strap heart rate monitoring which is great because the grip sensors are usually inaccurate.

If you have chosen to use the iFit capabilities you can access lots more programs which are innovative and imaginative and do add a lot of fun to your workout experience, but it’s not essential to use it on this machine as it has so much available already in the way of workouts.

 

Ease Of Use & Convenience

The machine is incredibly heavy and isn’t the easiest to assemble, if you can enlist some help then do so to save yourself some time and potentially some physical strain to.

The Spacesaver design with Easylift Assist is really great if you need the treadmill to use up a little less space when you’re not using it, be warned it does not fold up fully so you may find it’s not as compact as you expected.

The programming and user interface are all very easy to work your way around despite the plethora of options, you’re still able to use it easily. The information you input is basic and doesn’t really enable the machine to give you accurate readouts.

 

Entertainment

The machine has an Intermix Acoustics 3.0 sound system and Compatible music port for iPod which means you can enjoy a few tunes while you work out, as long as you’re willing to endure the slightly primitive sound coming from the speakers. If you use your headphones you’ll find the sound is a much better quality but you’ll need to use external music devices if you want loud, strong base.

The iFit capabilities are more than enough to keep anyone entertained with different workouts available every day and the ability to workout using local routes and routes worldwide. The full membership isn’t cheap at around $100 dollars a year and you’ve no need to purchase it on a machine that has so much available in the way of workout capabilities and customization already. If you do decide you want to invest remember the console is iFit compatible so you don’t have to rush and purchase membership right away.

 

Warranty

  • Frame and Motor- lifetime
  • Parts- 3 years
  • Labour- 1 year

 

The Final Verdict

At around $1150 dollars the Reebok Zigtech 910 treadmill isn’t cheap, but it certainly is value for money. The exceptional comfort levels combined with the various innovative customization options mean you’ve got more than your money’s worth before you’ve even begun to explore the programs or iFit capabilities. The extras are mediocre in quality but make no difference to the fact this treadmill packs a real punch for the price.

Users of all ability will benefit from the high comfort levels and great variation in customization options; all in all,a fantastic buy.
