Reebok Vista Treadmill (With Flat Screen Monitor) Review

I was running through some of my earlier product reviews and came to realise that I have not covered any treadmills from Reebok. One treadmill of theirs that I have experienced is the Reebok Vista Treadmill (with the Flat Screen Monitor). It comes positioned at a price of USD 1599. Here are the specifications on the Reebok Vista Treadmill:

I have used it just twice – the second time to remove the doubt that I was prejudiced after the first use. Though Reebok as a sport equipment manufacturer makes some great treadmills (check out the Reebok 9500 ES model), the Vista did not impress me much.

Though the belt cushioning is very decent as is the large running surface, the treadmill itself, does not feel very stable. I also believe the flat screen TV monitor is an unnecessary provision – a treadmill should first give what is expected of it – a strong and silent motor and a stable running deck. The other considerations are cushioning, warranty, maintenance. I found the motor average and the warranty was not great.

This looks like a treadmill in the lower-mid range of USD1200 with the extra bucks for the TV accessory, which is not a must for a treadmill. Like I said, the Reebok 9500 ES model comes with a better TV and great features (35 workout programs!) for another USD 1000 and can be had on sale for a s low as USD 1500. I believe some customers of this treadmill have also experienced trouble with the console. For this mid-ranged price, you may want to run checks on NordicTrack and ProForm which, besides Reebok, are also manufactured by the giant Icon Health and Fitness.

MY RATING OF REEBOK VISTA TREADMILL WITH FLAT SCREEN MONITOR = 3 out of 5 stars
