Main Pros or Advantages:

  • Excellent customer support and services is provided throughout by JTX fitness and their team and they are very quick to respond to any issues that may arise
  • You get the option for the Slimline Compact model which can be folded away under the bed (24cm high only) and is the best solution for people living in smaller living spaces.
  • Digital inclines give you superb hill climbing training and improves your cardio system, glutes, hamstrings and calf muscles
  • Includes premium features such as the DiscTech™ speed adjustments for increased safety and performance as you don’t need to look down – all you need to do is swipe your finger on the JTX DiscTech™ system
  • No assembly work is needed as it is more or less ready to go straight from the box and you can get interactive and connect with a range of approved running apps such as the popular Zwift Runpod
  • Excellent payment options are available at 0% APR, instead of paying for the full cost, you can pay a 10% deposit and then pay it off over a 6 month period or even a 12 month period which is a great way to spread the cost over a longer period of time
  • They do their best to ensure smooth deliveries and will contact you 1 hour in advance and will also drop it into your chosen room which is a superb level of service offered.
  • Nice little freebies are added in such as the free treadmill lubrication kit and also free weighted hand gloves and overall they want to have the best possible buying hassle free experience for their customers

Main Cons or Disadvantages:

  • One thing that can be annoying is the very large gap between the standard prices and the promotional prices – makes you wonder if the standard prices are inflated somewhat to increase potential savings
  • The Slimline compact model is limited to a speed of 14 km per hour where we see other models offering higher speeds to 16km per hour and in some cases 20 km per hour
  • If you want a Saturday delivery, there will be an additional cost of £20 involved
  • If you want them to undo all the packaging at delivery and get it fully 100% up and running, it will cost you over £100 which is far too excessive (they indicate this is not needed anyway)
  • Subsidised delivery charges will need to be paid for harder to reach locations outside England, Scotland and Wales. Plus, you may need to wait up to 5 working days or more in these harder to reach locations to get your delivery
  • External couriers and deliveries used by JTX are sometimes a little unreliable with meeting specific timeslots which is no fault of JTX themselves but it is something that can happen which is out of their control
  • On certain occasions, some small parts like screws and bolts can be missing which can be very frustrating and annoying
  • Many of these treadmills are very heavy so you would need some hired help to get them upstairs if that is where you intended to use it (the Sprint 9 weighs over 140kg!)

  1. There’s all the information you could possibly need in this JTX treadmill review to help you make an informed choice before purchasing, not only about the equipment itself, but about the supplier as well. I had been thinking about a collapsible model but looked at the others too as they are all 5 star rated whereas the collapsible was 4 star. I’ve checked out available space in the room where I’d put one and it seems there no need after all to go for a collapsible model where I’d have to be looking down which is not the best running posture. Thanks for the information and the dimension info and I’ve bookmarked this site for future reference as it’s so easy to find the information I’m looking to compare various treadmills and so forth, Regards, Richard

  2. I need to get my weight down and my best friend had mentioned these JTX treadmills that they were fab so I was checking out reviews and came across this review which has been a big help in giving me everything that I wanted to know and more. Great job and thanks for clarifying all my queries

  3. This is a really great review. I have been looking to start my own home gym and after so many consultations, I was told to start with a nice jtx treadmill because I can actually pay for one over a long period of time. I think it is great since I can’t pay at once. I’m glad I read through your review and I’ll definitely get one of this treadmills for my home workout. Thanks for posting this as I was unsure about them until now

  4. To be honest, I was excited when I realised that this treadmills are excellent for building up cardio exercise and mountain racing too. Generally, the various juxtapositions and summaries in each of the jtx treadmills actually provides for different options for selection but then, the pricing is an integral factor for my purchase and going by the fact that I run on a very limited budget right now, I may find it difficult to purchase any of this at the moment. However, should in case I want to expand my gym, then I will give these a serious consideration as the quality certainly grabbed my attention

  5. Hi Peter, I’ve been wanting a treadmill for a while now and am pretty much sold on the Reebok. From what I read in your review, the JTX brand has quite a large price range. What would be the main advantages of purchasing a higher priced JTX treadmill as compared to something like the foldaway model? 

    I do like the idea of the foldaway feature but worry that the functionality of the actual treadmill may be compromised by the fact that it is smaller and more compact. What are your thoughts?

    • All I can say is that these JTX treadmills are absolutely awesome and one of the best we have ever come across. You will not be disappointed as the quality and features are definitely worth the money. Best of luck, Peter
