The Bodyguard T300 Commercial Treadmill – Rated a Best Buy

The Buzz

The Bodyguard T300 commercial treadmill is designed for heavy club use but can also be used in a home setting. The T300 is built on a 14-gauge steel frame, and has a 4-way reversible 1-inch thick deck, balanced rollers with sealed bearings, and a commercial grade Siegling E8 running belt.

It is powered by a 3.4 hp continuous duty Palladium motor, and features 2.5” rollers, a 20" x 54" running surface, a 15% max incline, and a top speed of 12 mph.

The T300 commercial treadmill also includes Bodyguard’s exclusive proprietary technology such as the Advanced Friction Detection System (AFDS) that alerts you on the console when the treadmill needs a lube job, an advanced Shock Absorption System (BDS+), and the Electronic Stride Control (ESC) that keeps the belt at an even speed regardless of the incline set and the user’s weight.

What We Say

In addition to good reviews by consumers and equipment pros, Treadmill Doctor rated the T300 as one of the top 3 or 4 Best Buys in its price class.

The Bodyguard T300 treadmill is somewhat smaller than most health club models so it is a better fit in home gyms and corporate gyms where space is a premium and you need a solid machine with a smaller footprint.

Bodyguard treadmills aren’t widely available in the USA (yet!), but this small Canadian company should gain traction in the North American market for all the great things it does on its machines.

The Bodyguard T300 commercial treadmill is priced around $3,500, so it will set you back a few bucks, but it’s worth it if you can afford – and if you can find one.
