Bodytrain Treadmill Review – Across 4 Models

1, The BodyTrain BPM Treadmill

Overview:

  • Starting off, this particular model has a 500W motor, the pulse sensors and can also be folded and locked away for easy storage. It is a lightweight treadmill suitable for lighter type workouts which weights 24kg and has a speed operation level of 1 to 6Km per hour.
  • In addition, there is a holder to place your phone or tablet which is a great way to keep you entertained as you do your work out.
  • It also has the LED screen which outlines the times taken, the distances, the speed levels and the estimated level of calories being used.
  • The running area available is 1000 x 340 mm and the maximum use weight allowed is 100kg. Price wise it is very reasonable coming in around the £150 level at the time of this review

Pros:

  • Very low price level suitable for people who need to work off a tighter budget
  • Small and light weight which can be folded away neatly in small storage areas.
  • Simple and effective for people who enjoy lighter type exercise routines

Cons:

  • Low levels of speed available – only 1 to 6 km/hr
  • Smaller motor which makes it suitable for lighter workouts only
  • Small run deck size dimensions

2, The BodyTrain Speed Treadmill

Overview:

  • The second model under the Bodytrain brand is the BodyTrain Speed Treadmill which has a lot more features and capabilities than the first but please expect to pay around £100 more for this one.
  • Here you also get the MP3, USB, SD card slot holder and there are the additional 3 separate incline settings to allow for harder and more difficult workouts. You also get the pulse sensors and the speed controls on your arms included of course the tablet or phone holder.
  • Speed levels - you are looking at 1 to 12 km/hr and there are also 12 pre-set workout programs for you to choose from which is great instead of having to program your workout manually.
  • The motor here has a lifetime guarantee which gives you additional confidence and can be folded away easily. Please note also that it has transportation wheels to make it easier to move around your home.
  • There is a selection of different short cut speed controls on the screen, there is the 1.5 HP motor and the price tends to be around the £250 level but can be double checked below.


Pros:

  • Additional 3 inclines and 12 pre-set programmes along with the MP3/USB slot
  • Lifetime warranty on the motor and can be folded neatly away
  • Larger run deck area of 1.22m by 40 cm

Cons:

  • Some of the pre-set programmes could be better

  • Larger sized run deck and higher speed level and also the additional incline settings

  • The last model for review here is the BodyTrain Fitness Master Treadmill model number 8008B which has the iPhone and Android App Control included for additional control for you and also the larger still deck size of 1.36m by 50cm.
  • The price level is much higher still so be prepared to dig deeper into you pockets for this one. You get the higher powered 3HP motor for extra power, a higher running speed of 18 km/hr and people with heavier weights can use this as it has the capacity of up to 150kg user weights.
  • There is also the incline setting of 15% included, the pulse sensors on the handlebars, the 3.5mm MP3 input device and of course the holder for you tablet or phone.
  • Overall this treadmill is for people who take running and workouts seriously and need a reliable machine with extra power to cater for heavier people and the price region when I last saw it came in at between £640 and £660 which can be checked below if you are interested in taking a closer look.

Pros:

  • Higher spec treadmill with more power of 3HP and the larger sized running deck
  • Can facilitate heavier weights of up to 150kg

Cons:

  • Price level remains high and doesn’t tend to be discounted or promoted regularly
  • Size is a lot larger (1.785m by 84.4cm) so you need to make sure you have adequate space in your home for it.

 

A summary table chart is outlined below:

BodyTrain Fitness Master 8008B Treadmill3HP1 – 18 km/hr96kgMax 150kg1360 by 500mm

If you are still on the fence about the Bodytrain Treadmill, remember that there is a 12 month warranty available on these treadmills and also a lifetime warranty on the motors which give you the buyer additional confidence before any decisions are made.

If you still wish to consider further options, then feel free to take a closer look at the Reebok GT40S Treadmill from Argos or the JLL S300 Digital folding treadmill from Amazon or the Reebok I Run3.0 from Sports Direct which are also worth a closer look and consideration before you make your final decision.

  1. Hey John, Maybe it’s a coincidence but I bought an exercise bike that’s great and now looking for a treadmill too. You have great reviews for all of these treadmills – everything that I need to know, not too familiar about the Bodytrain Speed Treadmill but learned a lot today. It appears to be a middle of the road kind of treadmill. I wouldn’t want to go cheap but not too expensive either. It’s got some great features but one that’s important to me is that it folds up. Thumbs up! Thanks for the work 🙂 Rob

    • Hi Rob, thanks for taking the time to visit and considering a treadmill under the Bodytrain brand and leaving your feedback – its greatly appreciated!

  2. Didn’t know too much about this brand Bodytrain and I must say this is a very thorough review which has really helped me and my partner get a better understanding about it. I have used treadmills for the past 5 years and looking for something I can rely on usually twice or three times per week. Prices look like they work also so thanks for doing the work of reviewing it before I consider buying. Thanks, Laura

    • Hi Laura – you are more than welcome and best of luck if you decide to go ahead with one  -Thanks also for taking the time to leave your feedback about this review. Regards, John.
