You know what I like about Xterra other than the price and features? 60 money back guarantee and Customer Service! I called the service desk at Xterrra Fitness and was very satisfied with the level of knowledge I found. This was not a call center but the factory itself! We’ve been using the 6.8 for a few weeks now and completely satisfied.
I SHOPPED EVERYWHERE!!!! Couldn’t beat the price, warranty, features, and easy to understand step by step assembly instructions. I had a little difficulty understanding one part of the set-up and the Xterra folks were patient and helpful on the phone. Prices $1,299 GREAT VALUE.
My Wife and I were done with the club / 24 hr Fitness scene……. Tired of waiting in line for a treadmill or elliptical machine. Went to Dick’s, Sears, and Sam’s to shop but found the sales guys were not much help with info. Online there were many selections and many prices. We found the 6.8 Xterra website and felt we could not go wrong with the warranty and features. One month later I’ve lost 22lbs and my Wife has lost 10. We love our Xterra treadmill.
I would compare my 6.8 Xterra to many brands priced over $3000. The features are too many to list. Ours is a large family with many users. My favorites are the two custom programs with heart rate control. I just want to maintain my healthy lifestyle without taking my workout too far. Watching my target heart rate allows me the comfort zone I desire. Great price too $1,299 delivered.
I've been through 4 treadmills in my life and all of them have been fold ups that have wobbly and weak decks. This one is the exception! Finally someone nailed an easy fold ing deck that doesn't feel like it is cheap or going to break. This treadmill feels like something I'd find at my local gym but it isn't commercial.
It's hard to tell the difference between this model and the 6.6 model. Both have similar specs and features. In the end we chose this model because of the 5 year parts warranty, more of an insurance policy that we just considered an extended warranty fee for the difference. The treadmill is built very well, strong, sturdy, some of the plastic pieces are well, plastic, but appear to have a long durability factor. Fold up and down is smooth and really my favorite feature.
I had a chance to use one of these for awhile at the gym I used to go to. Really solid treadmill with a lot of cool options. That bright screen makes the numbers really pop even in the low light in morning or evening! When I started looking for a treadmill to use at home I figured I couldn't afford one of these for the house. Easily felt like a 2000 machine. Found it online for 1299 and was shocked. Its just as good as the one at the gym except its in my living room now.
