The Buzz

The Star Trac E-TR treadmill features a custom aluminum uniframe and a 5 horsepower AC motor. It has SoftTrac cushioning suspension and a 1-inch thick reversible composite fiberboard deck.

The E-TR is the entry level model of Star Trac’s E-Series line which focuses on entertainment features. The treadmill has integrated iPod connectivity along with a USB port for charging your devices.

It also has pulse grip and Polar-compatible heart rate monitoring, cup holders, and adjustable cooling fans.

What We Say

This Star Trac treadmill is a solid machine that will give you hours and hours of heart-pumping cardio workouts.

Reviewers rate the E-TR off the charts for performance, reliability, and comfort, so the only question to ask is, do you really need a commercial treadmill (designed to be used 16 hours a day) for your home gym?

Companies like Landice, Life Fitness, and Precor offer better warranties, but this E-Series beast has the biggest motor of them all. There’s really no downside to it, just don’t pay too much: we’ve seen the Star Trac E-TR treadmill selling online for as high as $6,699 and as low as $4,995 so shop around with that price disparity in mind.
