The Reebok T 6.80 is an average budget treadmill with multi features and diverse programs.
We recommend it to light runners and joggers and to those who want to engage in consistent weight loss programs.
But let’s take it gradually. Firstly, the motor is powerful enough to make you push yourself to the limit. The good thing is that the walking belt is large enough to ensure comfort and efficiency during workout.
And speaking of workouts, there’s plenty for you to choose from. Apart from the 8 classic workouts, there is the weight loss center that any user eager to lose weight will find most helpful. The main attraction with this weight loss center is that it allows you to insert your weight, calorie and duration of the workout. These features are pretty much a clear insurance of your performance. All you have to do is keep your motivation up and your feet on the running deck.
For us, it’s really helpful and also a key advantage to be able to enter personal weight values. This way, feedback is more accurate and you’ll be able to always be in control of your workouts.
For those who get tired easily, this treadmill offers a feature that pumps your motivation and keeps you on the running deck until you reach your goals. The sound system is of high-quality and the cool thing is that it has iPod compatibility. As a matter of fact, you can use any player you have, but you can also plug in your iPod.
When you are not using the treadmill, just fold it for better usage of the space. And on top of everything, the warranty is quite convenient for a low budget machine. Lifetime for frame, 25 years for motor, 1 year for parts and labor sounds pretty good. Strangely, we’ve encountered this kind of warranty for treadmills above $1000.
Plus, this is not a treadmill you can use for more than a couple of years. For the investment you make you get the most of it.
