Bodyguard Fitness started its activity in 1969 in Norway. Since the beginning they’ve built strong and durable fitness equipment. That’s why over the years they’ve received numerous and prestigious awards such as “Best Buys” and “Best Customer Service”.
In 1996 they were bought by Procycle Inc., a well-known Canadian company with offices in Vancouver and Shanghai.
Procycle Inc started its activity in 1977. They specialized in bicycle manufacturing and today they export their products in Canada, US and 30 other countries.
Bodyguard offers residential and commercial products, such as treadmills, ellipticals and bikes. All series are first-class machines, and that is why their quality is consistent with a high price.
You won’t be surprised to know that Bodyguard studies intensively each technology incorporated in their treadmills before production. For example, the Digital Contact Heart Rate (CHR) system may be the most accurate digital heart reading system we’ve ever tested. We still prefer the wireless chest strap for heart monitoring, but we respect the effort to reach perfection for details that other brands don’t consider at all.
When running on their machines you instantly notice that all exercises accurately correlate with your heart rate. Warm-up, fat burning zone, aerobic zone, anaerobic zone, VO2Max zone, these are important details that you find in each workout settings, and you track results based on your personal information.
They build state of the art audio and visual entertainment features and they make sure you have access to complete workout reports and interactive feedback while you exercise.
That’s why Bodyguard is a leader.
Commercial and Residential Treadmills
Bodyguard has the technology to build highly resistant and efficient products. Not many manufacturers can pride themselves to be active in both markets. Those who can are the strongest.
X-Technology and X-Cards
X-Technology is actually an interactive workout system developed by Bodyguard. This system gives you access to interactive workouts directly in your Online account, at any time.
They also have the X-Cards, which are preset workouts for treadmills, with voice enabled and automatic control over incline and speed.
Advanced Friction Detection System (AFDS)
This technology is part of any model you buy from them. It protects the motor from overheating by verifying in real time the friction level. That’s why you can run on the Bodyguard treadmills for hours in a row without any problems.
4 Way Deck
This is the running deck placed under the belt that can be pivoted and/or rotated as needed.
Bodyguard has 3 warranty options for residential treadmills (Classic, Premium, Premium Plus) and 1 option for the Commercial series. The minimum, Classic Warranty, is particularly strong, especially for parts.
Offers start at $2,000 and they go as high as $5,000. These are not the cheapest treadmills, but the price comes with equal quality and resistance, no doubt about it.
