Star Trac Treadmill Reviews
Star Trac introduced their first commercial product in 1974, and their first commercial treadmill in 1987. This company has paid their dues to the treadmill world and they have been around long enough to build up a decent reputation for themselves. They pride themselves on building partnerships with customers and providing quality products that require little maintenance.
Star Trac is becoming popular among fitness clubs and gyms around the nation. They claim that over 3 million people in 70 different countries are using their fitness equipment, whether its at the gym or in their own home. Their main focus was to only sell commercially, however, they have expanded to residential.
This company is popular among gyms because it is one of the cheaper commercial treadmills out there that still maintains decent value. Their parts might not be up to par, but they provide a great electronic package. Every single electronic component put into these machines is heavy-duty. The frame is a heavy-duty custom steel frame, and the motor HP is always large. Even their cheapest model comes with a 3.0 HP motor, while their most expensive treadmills can be up to 5.0 HP.
The one thing that keeps Star Trac treadmills from sky-rocketing is their outrageous prices. Anyone who wants to buy a treadmill will quickly turn away from this brand because of their prices. Their treadmills can be anywhere from $2000 – $9000 dollars. Ouch. If you’re willing to spend this much for a treadmill, it would not be that bad of investment. There are just so many treadmills out there than can compare pretty well with these and you could save quite a bit of money. These treadmills are just a bit over-the-top for an in-home treadmill.
