Reebok ZR8 Treadmill
About this deal
The final folded dimensions are: H145, W74, D102cm, which is on the compact side compared with a fair number of other treadmills on the market. Hence, if you’ve been struggling to find a treadmill to fit into your space when out of use, the Reebok ZR8 could be worth a look on those grounds alone. As a final point, the Reebok ZR8 has a “soft fold” mechanism, which as far as we can see means that even if you actually try, you’re unlikely to be able to let it drop to the ground with a thump.
It’s what we’d call a good all-rounder, it has a decent level of speed and range of inclines and enough pre-set programmes to keep most people happy. More than that, however, it comes with Reebok build quality and the guarantees to support it (2 years overall, 10 years on the motor and a lifetime on the frame), which gives us confidence that this is a treadmill which is built to last. We do have to warn you that if you’re the kind of person who likes to turn it up to 11 volume-wise, then you’re going to have to make alternative arrangements, however for everyone else the volume level should be sufficient (particularly given how quiet the motor is) and the sound quality was, if we’re honest, better than we were expecting.

This is pretty much par for the course with the intermediate range of home treadmills. Jupgod Treadmills for Home, 1.5HP Running Machine Under Desk Motorized Treadmill, 1km/h to 10km/h,... When looking at suppliers for the Reebok ZR8, we strongly recommend that you look for vendors who offer free delivery, or at least delivery at minimal cost.
The setup was really went smoothly, I always set up test treadmills with my partner as moving the treadmill into position is never easy by yourself (plus he still hasn’t forgiven me after the scratched floor incident). Finally I lifted the arms while he screwed the bolts into place and I was all set to give it a try. The reason for the price drop is the fact that new treadmills have come on the market, creating competition. That extra little bit of length and width does make a meaningful difference for people who want to use the Reebok ZR8 for running rather than walking.Although the Reebok ZR8 is at the more affordable end of Reebok treadmills, it’s fair to say that there are cheaper treadmills out there. There are 24 pre- set programmes plus bodyfat 3 target programmes and 3 other user defined programmes – 31 in all so plenty to keep you motivated. Also included is a heart rate monitor that works by gripping the handles to give an accurate reading of your pulse. Pros We suspect that’ll probably be enough to keep most users happy. Once you’ve decided what you’re going to do, you can set the Reebok ZR8 into motion and appreciate the quietness of its 2HP motor (with 3 HP peak speed).
As a side note it may look like a nice feature but I can’t really recall when lifting and lowering a treadmill has been that much of an issue. How much of a benefit this would be to you only you can measure. More features of the Reebok ZR8 One of the selling points promoted is the soft folding mechanism, this reminds me of that FORD advert where the boot slowly opens or a soft closing kitchen draw unit. This feature is completely wasted on me as we have a fixed full size position for our treadmill in my house.On either side of these LCDs, there are twelve little graphics, which give users a fair indication of what to expect from the 24 pre-set programmes. The bottom half of the console contains two rows of buttons, divided by a speaker. These cover all the various functions of the treadmill, if you wish speed and incline can also be adjusted via the hand rails, which are equipped with pulse sensors. We’re guessing this is a deliberate attempt to cater to different tastes. Hence, your average Reebok treadmill console may be a love-or-hate affair, although we generally get on OK with them regardless of which model we’ve tested.
