Well, the Treadmill Sensei is a bit of a lazy bum. 4 months later and I’m still wrapping up on my Ichi-Ban Award winning treadmills and ellipticals. The Ichi-Ban Awards for this year will all be done in advance and should be going up in October of this year. I’ll be working hard all summer to make sure the reviews are wll packed for the end of the year, especially as I get ahold of the new units being released at the end of this summer. Stay tuned!
Today, tho, I want to take about what I consider to be one of the best home/light commercial treadmills on the market today.
The treadmill I’m talking about is the Quantum 3.0s treadmill from Quantum fitness.
If you’re a regular reader of this site, or if you’ve had a chance to peruse the 2006-2007 Ichi-Ban Awards, the you already know how highly I rated the Quantum 2.5s treadmill. The Quantum 3.0s is a step up even from that bad boy.
The Quantum Q 3.0S Treadmill comes with one of the largest running areas around on any treadmill — 60″x22″ — a huge, coll-running and low RPM 3.0 horsepower motor and monster 325 pound user weight. Add 16 programs, heart rate monitoring and control, an include Polar HR strap and one of the sturdiest steel frames around and you can see why the Quantum 3.0s rates so well with us here at the DOJO. These treadmills are a joy to set up and a joy to use. One one minor quibble is the same one I had for the Quantum 2.5s: some of the screw and bolt placements are a bit hard to access. Putting the uprights and console on the base may be a little frustrating for the average consumer.
If you want an incredibly solid, high end commercial feel to your treadmill then the Quantum Q 3.0S simply cannot be beat.
For being as close to perfect as you can get and for having insane pricing, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Quantum Q 3.0S a perfect 5 out of 5 golden buddahs!
5 gold buddahs out of 5 for the Quantum 3.0s treadmill.
