Vision Fitness Treadmill Reviews 2018

Last Updated: 2/27/2018

Starting as a division of Trek Bicycle Company in 1993, by 1996, Vision Fitness became a fitness company in its own right, bringing out their first treadmills a year later. A little over a decade later in 2008, Vision Fitness joined under the umbrella of Johnson Health Tech. This makes Vision Fitness a sister brand to other well-known brands such as Horizon Fitness, Matrix, and Advanced Fitness Group (AFG).

Along with the treadmills which Vision Fitness manufacturers, they also produce exercise bikes, ellipticals, and various fitness accessories.

Vision Treadmill Product Line Summary

Like its sister brand Matrix, Vision treadmills have a limited amount of base treadmills with 3 console options to tailor your treadmill to your preference. Also like other treadmill brands with options on the consoles and base models, Vision treadmills are fairly pricey. For the base model treadmill with the basic console option, you’re looking at spending $1,999. For the top treadmill base option and best console option, Vision treadmills cap out at $4,799. These treadmills are clearly not for the budget-conscious fitness enthusiast.

TF Series

Vision Fitness TF treadmill series contains two base model treadmills which are able to fold up, which is a feature not present in the T series. At their base model prices, the TF series range from $1,999 to $2,599. This price rises sharply depending which of the three console options you choose to buy with the TF series treadmill. The motors and treadmill belts are underwhelming, especially considering the price of these treadmills. However, they do have high weight ratings and can accommodate a user weighing up to 375 lbs.

T Series

There is not much of a discernable difference between the two treadmills which make up the T series. They are both non-folding, have a 400 lbs max weight capacity, same incline range of 0-15%, same 3.0 CHP motor, and even the same home warranty lengths. One of the few differences we could find in two T series treadmills specs was the treadmill belt on the T40 measures 20” wide by 60” long, while the T80 measures 22” wide by 60” long. This doesn’t seem to merit a price difference in the base models (with basic consoles) of $2,399 for the T40 and $3,799 for the T80.

Our Ruling On Vision Treadmills

Vision treadmills are a good and heavy-duty treadmill product but we don’t think it was meant for the average home gym owner. While Treadmill Reviews doesn’t just look at treadmills meant for residential owners, we do try to keep in mind that many treadmill buyers are looking for a treadmill for private residences.

With that consideration, we would not recommend Vision treadmills to individuals looking for home treadmills. They are pricey without the kind of returns that you can expect from treadmill brands which cater to home buyers. If you are looking for a sturdy treadmill with engaging options, check out ProForm and NordicTrack. If you don’t care for the tech extras and want to focus solely on the sturdiness of the treadmill, the read some of our reviews of SOLE treadmills.
