Treadmill Model Reviews

    AFG 1.0 AT - Average scores for power, reliability, warranty, and above average marks for noise level and overall value. A decent choice if you can find it on sale.

    AFG 2.0 AT - Everything you need in terms of mechanical design, especially in the areas of power, cushioning, programs, value, and warranty.

    AFG 3.0 AT - Delivers in terms of cushioning, noise level, power, and quality. Unfortunately, the asking price exceeds that of competitor models.

    AFG 3.1 AT - The updated redesign of the console and the side arms is a huge improvement over the 3.0 AT.

    AFG 5.0 AT - An above average treadmill with standard features and a big price tag.

    AFG 5.1 AT - Outstanding features, programs, and solid treadmill feel – it’s a durable ride at every pace.

    AFG 7.1 AT - This treadmill is big in every way: power, cushioning, warranty, and value – but not in price. It’s a good value at $1,999. 

    AFG 13.0 AT - The AFG 13.0 AT gets nice reviews and even earned a Best Buy distinction from Consumer Reports.


    Bodyguard T240 - a well-designed model that has received Best Buy awards from experts.

    Bodyguard T280C - outstanding for performance, comfort level, quiet operation, easy of use, one-piece welded frame, big user capacity, and best warranty in business.

    Bodyguard T300 - The T300 commercial treadmill was rated as one of the top 3 or 4 Best Buys in its price class by Treadmill Doctor; ideal for home gyms and corporate gyms where space is a premium.

    Bodyguard T460X - rates well above average in every aspect: power, cushioning, noise level, quality, size and a strong warranty; made the 'Best Buy' list for 2009.


    Bowflex 3-Series - A basic entry-level machine, Bowflex's best-selling model.

    Bowflex 5-Series - A treadmill for serius runners

    Bowflex 7-Series - Top Bowflex model for dedicated runners.

    Bowflex BXT116 - First introduced in 2018, a new entry in the traditional treadmill lineup.

    Bowflex BXT216 - An upgraded version of the BXT116 with more workouts, stronger motor and enhanced display.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC5 - The fact that the TC5 offers 3 modes – as a stairclimber, an elliptical, and a treadmill – is somewhat deceptive in that it doesn’t do any one of the three well.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC10 - The TC10 is over-rated and poorly designed. You can get a great treadmill for that amount of money so we recommend you forget the hype on these machines.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC20 - An update of an older model that adds longer foot treadles among other things.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC100 - One of two new models with enhanced capability and heart rate monitoring.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC200 - Advanced version of the TC100 with workout tracking capability.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC1000 - Is this machine a good deal?

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC3000 - Short hydraulics warranty worrisome.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC5000 - Great workout, bad design.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC5300 - Three machines rolled into one!

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC5500 - Dinky motor, no labor warranty.

    Bowflex TreadClimber TC6000 - Another overpriced 3-in-1 machine.
