The Reebok ZigTech 710 treadmill is made by ICON Fitness, a huge name in the exercise equipment world, but it sports the Reebok label to appeal to consumers unfamiliar with treadmills. Listing at $1000, it can often be found on sale for $800. As an entry level treadmill at the upper price range, it's an unexciting but acceptable machine.
Twenty-two workouts and iFit compatibility mean you can use virtually unlimited workout routines designed by personal trainers whether you log on to jog along a Google Maps path or opt for a pre-programmed routine. The 6" console lets you chart your calorie burn, distance, pulse rate, speed and your progress on an oval, track-like display.

Reviews of the Reebok ZigTech 710 treadmill tend to focus on the practicality of this treadmill rather than on its "wow" factor. Most users chose the 710 because it's a modestly priced machine that easily folds up and out of the way when not in use. The reviews frequently mentioned how easy it was to fold the treadmill with the EasyLife™ Assist. The deck is spacious enough for all but the tallest runners, but some users felt that the motor was a bit inadequate for the job.
We think that ICON cut the wrong corners on this treadmill. While the choice of programs is good and the iFit compatability gives you the option to train with others online, the company should have focused more on a better motor. If you're going to be seriously training, the 2.5 horsepower may strain to keep up at times. The maximum weight limit of 325 pounds and 12° adjustable incline are fine, but not outstanding. The same goes for the warranty on the Reebok ZigTech 710 treadmill; while the lifetime on the frame and motor are good, just two years for parts falls short compared to other warranties in this price range.
UPDATE: New Year's Treadmill Sales are on!
