Like the idea of a "small and compact" but wonder if it might be a bit tricky trying to run on it. Although with only a 13kph maximum speed it might only be a jog. How noisy at full speed? Not seen one for real so unless you have already decided this is for you then I can comment apart from the price might be good if you need it
All Treadmill Discounts, Offers and Sale - September 2019
Never, f*** running.
So anything above 10km is sprinting?? (lol) When was the last time you used a treadmill?
Saunter machine ?
It’s a running machine not a sprinting (ninja)
can this take calls? emphasising bluetooth and all (lol)
It was previously £300 + del. Even at £329 it's a great price.
Website showing as £329 + delivery. Was it previously at the lower price or am I missing something that brings it down to the £300?
This is actually £329 not £300 when selecting the link today.
Great treadmill, we've had one for a while and it does the job just fine.
We bought this a few weeks ago at this price from Sports Direct. The treadmill is really good (although big and heavy - we use it in the garage) but like larne1 above we also had big issues with the courier. They were absolutely pathetic. Took weeks to eventually deliver after 3 times where they decided they couldn't deliver as planned.
No clothes hanger comments yet!
Very expensive cloth dryer,😫
Only £300 at sports direct https://www.sportsdirect.com/reebok-gt40-s-treadmill-765002?awc=5374_1551743288_9a5ec0a948e15d0ed2ec15fedc7374a5&utm_source=Affiliatewindow&utm_medium=Affiliates&utm_campaign=digidip+UK+and+USA+-+Incentivized
Mine came 12th from Sports Direct for £305 inc. delivery. Set it up and it's not that loud at all. Folds up fairly nicely. Pretty sure it's a good buy.
Parts came in two days, arranged visit via text with engineer, he was only here 25 minutes and job done. A 1st class service. All fixed and good as new.
probably it is sportsdirect company. same ui for login/join.
back on site for £300 !
Mine got delivered today, now to assemble it and test it out
Does anyone have a code for Argos. Thinking of ordering this. Thanks
In same boat mate. Got £15 refund through Argos chat (y)
They also have the Adidas T16 Treadmill on offer at £499. Everywhere else still seems to be £750-£900. I ordered one last week & it should be delivered this Friday. Reebok Jet 300 also available at £599.00 but a couple of weeks wait for that. Heat from me.
Are these as good as the ones in the gym or are they not built as well or slower?
I've got the gt40s and am very happy with it. When I was doing my research some of the reviews for the zr8 commented on the display being a bit simple compared to the gt40. Also more comparisons were made to the gt40 being more like a gym machine than a home machine. It is heavy but feels like it's very good quality. Also lack of drinks holder on the zr8 put me off..
but which is better?
What's the difference between this and the Reebok ZR8 that's about £40 more?
Does it have a tray to put my chips on?
That's a shame - I did some work for these guys when they first started out in Northampton - really nice people and couldn't do enough to help customers.
Fitness superstore are not to be trusted. I bought a faulty treadmill and they refused to take it back. The lady kept on trying to get me to say that I had changed my mind about it. Total crooks!
Great for hanging clothes for the rest of the year.
I've ended up going for a different model with the 15% off code on ebay argos... They didn't have this one listed so went for the gt40s instead..
I would hold out as if you look at passed prices they are usually £80 cheaper look in the search bar for this unless you can’t wait then go for it
Agreed. Good machine, I bought it couple of months ago and am happy with it.
Great machine, had ours for years now.
Try a different make. Based on my experience I'd strongly suggest looking for an alternative manufacturer. I bought a Reebok treadmill some months ago and it didn't work as it wouldn't switch on. .I got it replaced and the second one worked 3 times then wouldn't switch on so it was sent back for a refund.
I ordered one today using the code and it went down to £369.74 with free delivery.
Thanks - I’ve just looked at www.jllfitness.co.uk and S300 is £434.99 down from £504.99 but not at £370. The 15% code is available to use as it mentions on their homepage.
I posted a treadmill deal earlier but it was removed because the site isn't recognised. It's the JLL S300 which I ordered directly from the manufacturer website for £370 delivered. Use BFRIDAY15 for an extra 15% off the sale price. It's on Amazon for over £400 with delivery.
Wow, will expire, glad I grabbed one earlier!
Oh ok. Let’s hope another deal pops up shortly. I have been looking around and not found any other deals for a treadmill today.
Better to buy a second hand one. There are so many barely used on Ebay.
I got the zx10 for £449, I'm sure it'll be that price again
Is it good for early morning incline walking? Does it come with set programs that go from flat surface to incline repeatedly? I do an hour outdoors when the weathers not awful but miss out otherwise. I'd appreciate the input.
Much slower, which is why it's of no use to me. Tops out at 13kph. ZR8 and 9 both go to 16, ZR10 goes to 18. The size of the running surface gets bigger with each model too. If you don't plan on doing more than a light jog on it then it will be fine though.
Very tempted. How do these compare to the ZR8/9/10 - I notice some of the reviews are for the ZR8 My only concern is with Argos and their customer support. I purchased a York cross trainer from them which broke within the warranty period. I expected either a repair to the current cross trainer or replaced with the same model if a repair wasn't possible. Shockingly, as I had purchased this on an offer (~£200) and that particular piece of equipment had gone back up to full price (~£350), Argos refused to repair/replace the cross trainer; No repair, no replacement with the same model and no refund. Instead, I had to choose another piece of equipment up to the same value of my original purchase price. After much arguing, I caved in and ended up choosing a particularly crap rowing machine which I soon sold on. I wonder what the policy is if this treadmill breaks during warranty, considering it is on offer.
I think I might get Zwift
What max speed do you need?
One big problem with this is the max speed. Once you have a good level of fitness you could run at the max speed for 2 hours easily. Need at least 15km max speed
Terrible treadmill. Absolutely appalling service. The tech guy they send out will tell you it is normal for a treadmill to creak as you run, jump on it with his dirty feet after taking his socks & shoes off & then leave without doing a repair. Buyer beware. Do not buy a Reebok Treadmill
I bought a Reebok treadmill from my brother-in-law. It is a higher spec model, cost him £800. He used it about four times in three years then sold it to me for £300. However, it has blown up three times! I have paid for a replacement board, then got a free motor under 10 year warranty, but had to pay to get it fitted, now it's blown again! Getting really fed up with it. Poor quality. Guy who fixed it said I hadn't oiled it enough. I've done that loads since, but it's still dead. :(
Coming to Ebay in about 2-3mths time for the price of £50, 1 owner, very little use, buyer must collect
Yet another expensive shirt hanger.
Also Reebok GT30 for £369 delivered..
Expensive clothes hanger
Some alternate options: "Which treadmill" (from Argos) "Reebok ZR8 Compact Treadmill - £399.12 @ Amazon" (now £384.86)
IMHO Extremely poor quality. Bought one b4 Xmas set it up and it wouldn't function. Got it replaced and the second one has been used 3 times and now doesn't work. Seems to have the same issue as the first one i.e. no power getting to motor or dashboard.
Might get one of these to stand next to the cross trainer in the garage that doesn't get used either.
Other options in this recent "Ask" thread too: [ https://www.hotukdeals.com/discussions/which-treadmill-2953465 ]
I agree with the physio just wanting to get you out the door. I was seeing an actual sports physio via my health insurance who wasn't working to get me better but rather getting me back out running (there is a difference). Take a look at therunningschool.co.uk i've had a couple of sessions with them and they are brilliant
I started running with normal trainers but after about week 5 I went to find out what was most suitable and did a gait test. I overpronate and bought suitable footwear. The issue first happened after about 13 weeks. Interestingly, the times I've run on the treadmill I was in a much warmer climate. I do stretch and walk to warm up when at home. The physio (NHS) didn't seems to be interested in looking at it further and suggested I give up and swim or cycle. I have no interest in either. I suspect that the unwillingness is probably down to cost of further investigation so my best option now might be a private referral.
I completed the c25k in the Autumn but had to stop running due to lower back and hip pain . Really sad to have had to give up but couldn't risk a long term injury
In answer to luketelfer -delivery was good and kept me informed of delivery on the day of delivery. The guys carried the box around the back of my house and into a conservatory, however I would suggest you ask about delivery upstairs as these are very heavy and carrying up 3 flight of stairs would be quite a challenge.
Its most likely an issue with your running gait. I have been running for year now and i've had knee issues for the past 2. i recently had gait retraining and now no longer have the knee issues.
Can't see Mike Ashley personally using one of these...
worth noting that the product info from Argos is wrong. The item weighs 102kg and NOT 62.5kg. Pretty big mistake to make, especially if you're wanting to get this to an upstairs room. If you follow sensible manual handling guidelines that makes it a minimum of a 4 person job.
Why expired? Still available as far as I can see. Unfortunately most treadmills seem to have unrealistic rrps but at this price it's a good spec for the money. The first things to look at when comparing with other models are the power of the motor and size of the running deck.
I don't quite agree its expensive, its a really good treadmill for the price range. see http://www.treadmill-running-machine-review.co.uk/compare_treadmills.html. I do quite a lot of running on a treadmill and believe if you are going to get one then it had better be a good one.
Does it come with the chair and table?
Personally I agree with comments above that it's too expensive... but reason why I shared this deal is because some people regardless of what advise you give them... still prefers buying expensive branded stuff... So if someone already made there mind to get a Reebok 300 or whatever... then better spending £600 then £1000.. :)
