It also has an easy-to-read display with great programs, and users who have commented on it in treadmill reviews all say they would definitely recommend it to others.
The Quantum Q-3.2 EX is one of the few treadmills priced under $3,000 to have a max user of weight of 450 lbs. There aren’t many light commercial/residential models in any price range that can operate at an optimum level and support large users like the Quantum does.
Treadmills today need a niche or special feature to separate them from the pack. The advantages of the Quantum Fitness Q-3.2 EX treadmill is that it is based on a medical rehab machine, so it accommodates larger users or those with special ambulatory needs.
This 325-lb machine is rock solid and has an elegant fit-and-finish. Its MSRP is $3,099 but you can usually find it on sale online for about $300 less than that. The Quantum Q-3.2 EX rates a Good Buy.
