Ohiyo!

No, you aren’t imagining things…this is my second review for the day. It isn’t very often that the Treadmill Sensei sees a treadmill or elliptical that just blows him away. Earlier this week while I was roaming around town I stopped by a fitness dealer’s shop that I haven’t been to before. The shop itself was a little small but very well put together and, surprisingly, had a few of the higher end Bodyguard treadmills as floor units. Unfortunately, the shop owner didn’t know who I was and wouldn’t let me snap some photos. He did, however, let me spend a little over an hour working out with a very nice Bodyguard T460X Treadmill. I was even able to poke around a bit “under the hood” of the machine, much to the shop manager’s discomfort.

I’m not going to talk a whole lot about the specs of the Bodyguard T460x treadmill, you can read those down below. What I’m going to talk about is my experience on it, and I’m going to sum it all up with three words: Better Than Landice.

The Bodyguard T460X is simply one of the finest treadmills in production today. From my hour workout and being able to check out the motor, I feel that this unit is the best feeling, best performing and best priced treadmill in the $3000 to $4000 range. Nothing even comes close. Working out on the T460X was like getting in to a brand new Mercedes and taking it for a test drive. I didn’t want to get off it.

Here is a run down. You’ve got a monstrous 3.4 horsepower motor set in to one of the strongest treadmill frames around. Mounted on that is a 20″x63″ running deck that is made with runners in mind, as is incline/decline of negative 3% up to positive 15%…add in 29 different program options and you’ve got a treadmill that will take you to the limit.

If I had to nitpick the Bodyguard T460X treadmill then I’d really wish the maximum speed would go up to 15 mph to make it the ultimate runner’s machine. But 12 mph isn’t anything to laugh at.

If you’re in the market for a high end, high performance treadmill then check out the T460x by Bodyguard. For being totally sweet, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Bodyguard T460x Treadmill 5 out of 5 Golden Buddahs.


Just plain perfect.
