Bowflex Series 3 Treadmill

Here’s another treadmill from the Bowflex stead. The Bowflex Series 3 Treadmill is a foldable and economic offer from Bowflex. Let’s get straight to the specs and review:



Treadmill Weight

298 lbs or 135 kilos

Drive Motor

1.75 HP Continuous Duty



Belt Give

Strike Zone deck cushioning that enables soft landing and quick lift off

Belt (Dimension) – Usage area

20” (W) x 54”(L) x 1”(H)

Speed Range

Up to a max of 10 mph

Incline Range

0% – 12%


77” (L) x 35”(B) x 55.25”(H) when laid out; 39”(L) x 35”(B) x 60(H) when folded.

User Load Capacity

275 lbs or 125 kilos

Workout Options

6 preset programs – manual, cardio, running, fat burn, speed interval jogger, and hill intervals. 


Heart Rate Monitor

Grip heart rate monitoring


2 bottle cup holders


4 window LED

Though heavy, the Bowflex Series 3 Treadmill provides for easy storage with the SoftDrop

Decline facility. It is a solid machine in the folding category and comes with a 15-year warranty on the frame and a 10-year warranty on the motor, 2 years on parts and a year for labour. However, a more powerful motor would have been desirable for such a sturdily built treadmill, it offers as soft a cushioning on the deck as its Series 5 version does and allows for good user load capacity and a rather nice set of workout options. Priced at approximately USD 1000, this is close to as good as it gets for folding treadmills.

My Rating for the Bowflex Series 5 Treadmill – 4 out of 5 stars.
