Treadmill great--iFit not

Model Number: RBTL61010.0
"The online purchase, short shipping time, and home delivery were all done as they should be. The machine is quiet, easy to use and has features to entertain as I use it. The screen is clear and bright. I do not know how the iFit works since it does not install even though I have followed the directions to the letter. One day this week when I called their (lack of) support number, I was told that no one was there that day to help. Today, I have made three calls, used almost an hour of cell phone minutes and listened to hideous "music" but still have not gotten through to a person. Good thing the treadmill does what it promises."

Treadmill ERECTOR set

Pros: well built - high quality
Cons: nothing was assembled
Model Number: Reebok® Competitor RT 5.1 Treadmill
"I do like my treadmill very much but, it was not delivered as we had expected it to be.
I am handy with tools and I have put together a few pieces of furniture by myself. I told my husband that I thought I could put it together with a little help, from him, until we opened the box.
Step #1 was an 800 number to call a technician for assembly.
There were over 100 nuts, bolts, screws and washers in 16 different sizes. Plus dozens of plastic and metal parts.
My husband has been a professional technician for over 40 years and it still took him 2 1/2 hours to turn over 200 parts into a treadmill. We were not happy campers. I feel like my husband should have been paid by Reebok for doing their job. If you are thinking of buying this treadmill make sure YOU are able to assemble it or pay for a pro to assemble it for you.

Unknown at this time

"Product was to be delivered on 2/6 I did not get it until, 2/12. I opened the box as the truck driver was driving off and noticed the box full of tiny pieces of plastic. After more inspection I see the entire bottom section of the product is smashed. So I call the truck driver and ask who I need to call for damaged goods. So now I must send it back, and wait for a new one to be delivered. Advice to the company, when you are shipping a product on a wooden skid. Make the skid the the same size or a little larger than the package so it does not get damaged. The product should also be banded to the skid as well. I hope the next one is not damaged and comes soon."

We Love It!

Model Number: Reebok Competitor RT 5.1
"The ad says takes 2 to 3 weeks for delivery but it was here in 1-1/2 weeks. The ad also says curbside delivery, however the delivery gentleman asked where we wanted it and put it in the garage for my husband. My husband said he has rarely seen anything packaged as well as this treadmill and all the parts were included and nothing was missing. From unpacking to placing in our room in the house and assemblying, the whole process took approximately 2 hours. The instructions were complete and easy to follow. The treadmill is very quiet, and all the added features are easy to understand and operate. I would recommend this to ANYONE interested in purchasing a treadmill for home use. Just make sure you have the room since it is large, however the folding features helps. Great Product!!"

Zero quality control

Cons: junk, horrible quality control
"Got halfway through assembly only to find that the right leg on the base was inexcusably welded at a 75 deg angle instead of a 90 degree right angle. This makes it literally impossible to finish assembling the treadmill. The top of the right arm (that mounts to this leg) on the treadmill is now about 3" too far out from where it should be, making it impossible to attach the control panel.
Considering how many welds exist on this defective part, it is completely unacceptable that the defective weld angle is so severe. There is zero excuse for this ever leaving the factory.
It is extremely annoying that we already spent 2 hours unpacking, moving and assembling this thing. And now we have to figure out how to get this 200lb treadmill back to Costco, without owning a truck, for a refund."

Best Purchase Ever

Pros: incline adjustment, ifit technology
Cons: putting together
"While it took a little time to put together, the overall product is great. It has the largest incline, 15 degrees, and pushbutton. It runs well and is easy to use. I especially like the new ifit card technology if you care to use this to program your workout. Fantastic treadmill, so happy I got it."

Worth the money

"It's easy enough to move around in my garage and put together by myself, but you'll want an extra set of hands to get it upstairs (obviously) and to make putting it together a little easier.
I found the directions to be straightforward and easy to understand.
There were some screws more difficult to screw in than others, but I was able to get them all in with some extra force.
The treadmill itself holds up well under my weight (240lbs). I haven't felt it move beneath me nor does it seem to be straining to provide excellent cushioning.
The speaker is subpar, but that seems to be par for the course on treadmills in this price range. The fan is functional, but again, I'd prefer to use a large oscillating fan. Neither is a deal breaker.
The controls are easy to use and understand. My wife has tried an iFit program and enjoyed it, but has her own plan that she executes with ease.
The storage for water, our phone, and anything else we want come in handy.
It's a five star product based on the competition (lengthier base & higher weight maximum), but I gave it five stars based on the poor quality of the speaker and fan. I would have preferred that neither were there or that at least one was good quality."

well worth it

"Delivery was fast and friendly. It does take time and patience to assemble and requires 2 people. We spent a couple of hours and then finished in the morning. I was concerned with a squeaking noise that it makes, but I think it's just the cushioning parts that make noise. I've used the treadmill 5 days a week for over a month now and have no problems. Very happy with this purchase. IFit workout was too tough for me at first, but like it now. Love the fan. Wish it had a pause button. If you stop during a workout, you have to start over from the beginning."

Pros: solid assembly directions
Model Number: Reebok Competitor RT 5.1 Treadmill
"Box was set inside my front door by delivery crew. Approx. 2 hrs, almost to the minute, I had completed assembly. I consider myself very good at putting together things so it may take longer for others. I had no help nor did I really need help. First 25 min. was to open box and remove/organize contents. Follow/read directions CAREFULLY as I had to disassemble the console to add parts I'd left off by not paying attention. I assembled on an 8'x10' area rug which made it comfortable. Directions were easy to follow-this from a guy who hates directions and would rather look at a picture to assemble. I put together in living room then rolled down the hallway to spare room where I will use. Will begin using tomorrow and follow up with further remarks on this product."

Great machine, despite squeeks

Pros: fold up space-saver feature
Cons: customer service as explained below...
Model Number: Reebok® Competitor RT 5.1 SpaceSaver®
"This treadmill is just what I expected, works great, I like the fan, my ipod hooks right into it. My only complaint is an annoying squeek as I am using it. I called the customers service line snd was on "hold" for 25 minutes and no-one ever answered. My phone battery went dead at 25 minutes."

Pros: no pros. unable to use
Cons: worst customer service.
Model Number: Reebok Challenger
"This is the worst purchase I ever made thru Costco. Poorest Delivery. Just kept near door. Very Heavy. Broken Parts found during assembly. Reebok Customer service never answered. Returned call after 6 Hours. Happy when I told them I am going to return. Finally returned to Costco. I request folks to consider ThreadMill which comes with good delivery service. If assembly is included you are at luck."

Great product, great buy.

Pros: everything
Cons: assembly
Model Number: Reebok® Competitor RT 5.1
"It's big, it's heavy, it's impressive and it includes everything we'd want and features we don't really need. But we walk on the treadmill. We don't jog as shown in the picture. We are not heavy or obese. I don't think this is for jogging or power users. They should go to proper fitness centers. With all it's sophistication and programs, all we do is go up to an incline of #3 and speed of #3; begin and end on #1.
It plays my music (the sound is good), it monitors my heart rate and it has a two speed fan to keep me comfortable. I mostly watch TV when I'm on it and find it tempting to keep going beyond the planned time or calorie burn. My 11 year old daughter loves it too and is ever willing to get on. She is a typical 50%tile kid. I'm burning 200-300 cals each day, my wife about 200 and my daughter 100.
Beware, assembly takes 2 men about 3 or more hours. I could not count on my wife to help. But the manual was easy to follow and the control panel is intuitive to use.
We've only had it about a week, but it seems like it should hold up for many years. If you're looking to take off a few pounds or stay fit, this should do it. Just my take. Cheers."

"Good treadmill. Fan is loud and not very strong. Running is also loud (foot strike) and there's a lot of motion on the arms. VERY difficult to put together, a lot of time."

My Honest Opinion

Pros: seems to be a good value
Cons: heavy & awkward to handle
Model Number: Reebok® Competitor RT 5.1 SpaceSaver® Treadmill
"1 - BIG & HEAVY
2 - Mechanical Aptitude almost a requirement
3 - Assembled, it is bigger/wider than some doorways (ours, at least)... So, assemble it where you are going to use it!
In my case the electrical connector plug between the base (motor) and the console had a bent pin (there are about 8 pins in the connector), so, it did not want to connect together. Given how BIG and HEAVY it is, fixing it was a better option than boxing it back up. I previously did lots of electronic work, so that was not a real problem for me.
Lastly, one of the screws in the Pulse sensor plate (on the handle) was not long enough or was stripped out. I replaced it with a different screw I had on hand.
Otherwise, it works fine, but then I would assume it should."

Such a Deal!

Pros: well built, works well for 200+ pounds, quiet
Cons: pulse/heartrate horrible, fan is loud
Model Number: Item 598031
"I have shopped new and used Treadmills for a long time, so my expectations were very high. Arrived within a week and my son and his girlfriend and I got to work. We had very limited space which made assembly difficult, but we followed the directions step by step and it went together like an Ikea bookshelf. I have used it every day since I got it, and the kids are using it too. No one can believe it was $600. The only thing I wish it had was a linkable heart rate monitor. The pulse doesn't work well without numerous tries, and the fan is a little noisy which you don't notice when you are walking/running. The treadmill is quiet. I get up before everyone else and no one hears me in our small house."

"I love this machine, so quite and the IFIT bonus comes very handy, for the price i paid. assembly is easy if you read the instruction fully and sort the screws as you read the instruction. you can label with step 1 , 2, 3 thru the last step, this will save u a lot of time during assembly. i got the machine assembled in 30 to 45 minutes max if you sort out in advance."
