Greetings once again and welcome to our JTX Treadmill review which you definitely take a quick look through if you are thinking about buying one over the next few days or weeks. Our review will focus on the JTX Slim Line Foldable treadmill (which has the lowest price) but we will also take a quick look and compare 2 other options under this brand so at least you have more than just once choice when it comes to making any final decision.
One of the good things to note starting off is the fact that JTX do offer a pay by finance option which means that the cost can be paid for over a 6 month or a 12-month period at 0% APR which certainly helps monthly cashflow instead of having to fork out all the cash up front. As we mentioned, our review will focus on the lowest priced option here namely the JTX Slim-Line Compact treadmill and we will also provide comparisons against the JTX Sprint 5 Treadmill and the JTX Sprint 9 Treadmill (Gym quality) and a comparison table is outlined further down on this page so you can see for yourself how all the power levels, speeds, features, dimensions etc all compare against one another.
In addition, we have also provided a detailed frequently asked question section which hopefully can answer some of the possible queries that you may have about these treadmills from JTX who are based in West Sussex and orders can be placed in store or online for your own convenience -whatever suits you the best.

Part 3: JTX Treadmill Review – Pros and Cons
Pros for the JTX Slim-line Treadmill:
- The warranty with the all parts and labour for 12 months at home is certainly one of the best we have seen and it is great to see them stand over their products like this.
- One of the big attractions here is the fact that it can be folded so tightly at 24cm so it’s great to be able to slide it under the bed when not in use (but not for too long!)
- Having the accessories thrown in free of charge such as the oil lubricants and the weighted gloves is a nice touch to have – one less thing to worry about
- Deliveries tend to be very fast and in some cases can be delivered in a day or 2 – plus there are no additional delivery costs to be concerned about.
- One feature that you will really like as we did is the DiscTech speed adjustor where you do not need to look down to adjust the speed as it can be done instead with the swipe of your finger
- Many lower priced treadmills come totally unassembled which can be a tedious task to complete – this treadmill on the other hand requires no assembly which is great to know – it is more or less ready to go straight from the box
- There are great options to connect with running apps be it virtual world running, life track running or group race running if you have a tablet /iPad and footpod.
Cons for the JTX Slim-line Treadmill:
- This treadmill option from JTX has the smallest running deck size and the least power under the JTX brand.
- The maximum speed here for this treadmill is only 14 km per hour which won’t tick everyone’s box – other brands or models under JTX can offer 18 km per hour and in some cases 20 km per hour.
- Only 7 programmes are available which would be considered quiet low – many other treadmills we see offer 20+ programmes
- It not the heaviest treadmill we have come across but it is still 60kg in weight so please be aware that it is a lot heavier than it looks
- The one thing that you may miss is the lack of a water bottle holder to help keep you hydrated when running and the phone holder could be larger.
- Saturday deliveries are available upon request also but will set you back a further £20+

Part 5: Conclusion plus Feedback
Do we recommend this JTX Slim-line treadmill? While it is not the best treadmill we have ever used it certainly surpassed many of our expectations in many other areas. The lower level of speed of just 14 km per hour could be higher and the level of programmes could also be higher but apart from that, the power, performance and reliability of this machine is excellent and the fact it can be folded to 24cm is a major plus and will be perfect for people who need to store it under their beds due to smaller type living spaces.
Have you any personal experience yourself with using an JTX Treadmill? Did it operate as expected or did you experience any problems with it?
