Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Updated Sept 2020 - Are you interested in buying a JTX Treadmill in the coming days or weeks? If so, then please make sure to check out this JTX Treadmill review which hopefully can give you a better understanding of what they can offer you including all main features, pros and cons that you should be aware of. A series of short video clips are also outlined further below which are worth checking out.

Our initial review was on the JTX Slim Line Foldable Treadmill however that model is out of stock now so this review will focus now instead on the JTX Sprint 3 Electric Treadmill which offers you the consumer the lowest price in this range (which still costs more than your average home treadmill though!) In addition, we will also take a quick look and compare 2 other options under this brand namely the JTX Sprint 7 Treadmill and the JTX Sprint 9 Treadmill so at least you have more than just once choice when it comes to making any final decisions. Useful video demo’s are outlined below which will also give you a better understanding of what is involved and what they can offer you.

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 Sprint 3 treadmill and we will also provide comparisons against the JTX Sprint 7 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. Our review is split into 5 parts so feel free to skip to whatever part interests you the most.

Treadmill Features:

It comes with a power level of 2 HP, 40 programmes, a maximum speed level of 16 km per hour and it is supported with the 8 Point Cushionstep Deck system which is designed to reduce the level of impact on your joints by up to 30%. You automatically feel the spring in your step as you start jogging and running on this deck – so much more comfortable than road running

  • For more strenuous workouts, you can raise the deck automatically through 12 inclines where the inclines are powered from 0% up as far as 12% elevation.

  • JTX Sprint-3 Electric Treadmill Overview

Part 3: JTX Sprint 3 Treadmill Review – Pros and Cons to Note

Pros for the JTX Sprint 3 Treadmill:

  • If you want a JTX treadmill at the lowest possible price, then the Sprint 3 is the one to go for in our opinion which is usually available for around the £550 region from what we have seen.
  • One thing we liked straight away is the high quality steel frame, design and appearance of this treadmill – the build and components is certainly impressive.
  • Having a 2 year warranty to protect your investment along with a 28 day money back guarantee is great to have when spending this level of money needed.
  • There is a UK based support team in place in West Sussex who have a good reputation for dealing with customer queries – they are just a phone call away
  • Instead of having to adjust the incline manually, this can all be done automatically and even though the deck size here is the smallest in the range, it is still 46cm wide by 129cm long supported with the 8 point shock mechanism or advanced CushionStep suspension technology
  • Unlike many other treadmill brands, you get a cooling fan here to support your longer sessions plus the soft drop folding hydraulic mechanism when it comes to storing away after use.
  • Assembly is more or less all done for you – all you have to do is follow 3 simple steps in the manual which is one less headache to worry about.
  • Many other treadmills have only 10 or less than 20 programmes where this machine offers a total of 40 programmes so there is certainly something here to cater for everyone’s needs.
  • To keep you entertained and motivated for longer, you get the tablet holder along with the speakers and MP3 connectivity as standard.

Cons for the JTX Sprint 3 Treadmill:

  • You will need to buy a foot-pod separately for any interactive running experiences which will be a further expense to you.
  • Stock availability is somewhat unpredictable under the current circumstances which is understandable as many other companies are facing.
  • Generally speaking, this treadmill is available only as a pre-order item due to the level of demand so you will need to be patient when placing orders and expected delivery dates as you may need to wait 4 weeks or even longer
  • Even though they offer a 28 day money back guarantee, you need to be aware that this will be minus any delivery and collection costs incurred
  • The cooling fan is a nice addition to have but could be more powerful in our opinion all the same.
  • It’s great to see the JTX Sprint 3 being discounted and promoted for less than £600 – problem is when it comes off promotion you can expect to pay over £800 which is a bit too steep in our view
  • The deck size here is 16cm shorter and 5cm narrower than the Sprint 7 so take this into consideration if the deck size is important to you.
  • While the 2HP does gives sufficient power, the Sprint 7 offers far superior power (3 HP) than the Sprint 3 treadmill
  • There are 3 less inclines than the Sprint 7 and the LCD screen is also 2 inches smaller than the JTX Sprint 7 treadmill
  • For larger people over 120kg, you should look instead at the Sprint 7 as that model can cater for larger weights of up to 160kg.

Part 5: Conclusion plus Feedback

In summary, we hope that this JTX Treadmill review has benefited you in some small way and given you a better understanding on the features they offer and all the dimensions involved. Would we buy it? Certainly yes, but only when it is being discounted at their promotional prices as serious savings can be made! The quality of these machines match those that you see in your local gym in terms of high-quality build, design and sturdiness and it was well able to handle my own weight of over 100kg.

The price levels though are a little on the high side for my liking, but it does come with almost everything you would expect to cater for serious athletes. Due to the current pandemic, stock availability can be very unpredictable so you will need to book well in advance and be patient with a delivery date as it can take as long as 4 weeks and in some cases more depending on the model you choose. A nice touch also when you buy is the training wall planner and a free fitness programme which again help keep you motivated to get up on that running deck week in week out.

Our preference though overall is the JTX Sprint 7 upgraded model with the Bluetooth connectivity to Kinomap where you can run real routes and compete visually using the Google maps technology

Feedback???

  1. Thanks for this post on the JTX Treadmills as I really need to get in better shape for the upcoming Summer. I have heard so many good reviews on the JTX but I needed to check for more reviews – this one I found to have the best information as its straight to the point without any waffle and includes everything I need to know so thanks for your help in reviewing this for me before I buy – especially the table info. Good warranties from what I can see but they certainly do know how to charge for them I guess!

  2. Actually, in the gym that I used to visit down town, the treadmill jtx sprint 9 is being used and trust me, it works superbly. Seeing a detailed overview of the jtx treadmill series here makes it even better to have a wider knowledge on the various products of the JTX and how possibly they could be explored here. Each of the treadmill has its own special features and performance quality in its own rights and that is good. The more info you have about them the better in my view

  3. Hey John, excellent review on the JTX Slimline and thank you for providing so much detail overall. I really like the way it tucks away nicely and can even fit under a bed. My question to you good sir is, how noisy is it compared to other treadmills overall? I currently live in an apartment building and am wondering if I can get one of these and not drive the downstairs neighbours insane. That’s about all, thanks again for all the detail on this treadmill review as I am getting excited already!

    • Hi there, The noise level would be considered lower than your higher powered treadmills so it would definitely meet your noise level expectations based on our experiences anyway. Take care and best of luck, Regards, John

  4. Having got rid of our old treadmill some years ago, after deciding that maybe our indoor running days were over, not many weeks go by without regretting that decision. Foot injuries didn’t help the cause either but they are long gone now.

    You’ve provided a great review and with some to compare ‘side by side’ it helps at least to get an idea of what’s available in the market place. It is much needed, as our machine was very basic and had no where near the features this one offers. I was actually quite surprised at how much technology you get for the money, considering the stature of this model.

    This is by far, way more advanced than the one I was used to, so I do need to make plenty of comparisons. I weight about 96kg and as much as I’m sure I’ll shed a few pound initially, the aim is to be using weights over the next eighteen months or so. Could be that I’d be getting ever closer to the maximum weight threshold. The ‘Sprint 5’ does cater for a heavier weight, so that might be one to look at in more depth. 

    Has to be said, add into the mix the fact that you can get 0% finance spread over twelve months, there’s not much to be said against any of the options you have provided. A brand certainly worth a close consideration in my view

    • Hi there, many thanks for your detailed feedback report about our review and best of luck with your own final decision. It is greatly appreciated, Regards, John

  5. Hey John, Due to the pandemic gyms here are closed and I haven’t really been able to do any exercise. I was looking for a treadmill so that I could start cardio again and this post was really worth to read! I love this treadmill and I might even go ahead and buy it so that I can install it at my place!! Thanks for such a great review as I learnt a lot about what it can offer and all the minor detail is good in know in advance of any purchase
