About Treadmills
Walking is still considered one of the most beneficial cardiovascular exercises for people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels. As a fundamental form of aerobic training, walking has numerous physical benefits for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, while also increasing muscle tone and burning fat calories. Treadmills provide a convenient way to regularly exercise in all weather conditions in the comfort and safety of your own home.

From beginners just starting an exercise regimen to advanced athletes looking to maintain their fitness level, anyone interested in getting and staying in shape can benefit greatly from regular use of a treadmill. Treadmills allow you to determine the pace, distance, and complexity of the workout based on your needs, all while watching television, talking on the telephone, or reading a magazine. Much easier on sensitive joints like the knees and hips, treadmill walking and running surfaces are typically long, padded platforms that allow ample room for a long stride and comfortable, low-impact walk or jog without the harsh contact of a concrete surface.

While many different types, styles, and price ranges of treadmills exist, many of them offer unique features like a fold-up design for easy storage, an electronic display monitor showing speed, distance, workout time, incline level, and burned calories, and EKG grip pulses to monitor the heart rate while exercising. Regardless of the simple to complex features you may choose, treadmills offer an array of aerobic exercise opportunities that will provide long-lasting beneficial cardiovascular results without a commute to the gym or a jog in the rain.

This treadmill is a great product--very sturdy and runs smooth.

I did a fair amount of looking before I bought this model and I am very happy with it. I became interested in Bowflex treadmills after Consumer Reports rated the Bowflex 7 series as one if its best folding models. Shopping on Amazon, I realized that Bowflex made 3 folding treadmills--the 3, the 5, and the 7 series. Online, these look very similar, with the 5 and 7 series having longer tracks and a bigger motors. Strangely, the best source of information on these was not the Bowflex website itself (it has *no* information on the 3 ,5 and 7 series treadmills--just those crazy tread climbers), but rather the specs from Amazon.

Consumer Reports indicated that the best way to buy a treadmill was to actually see how the machine felt. I agree. I managed to find a store that had a 7 series in stock. I was impressed. The 7 series was rock stable and has a very nice folding mechanism--it locks in the up position and drops down slowly when released (a great feature if you worry about your kids getting crushed by the track accidentally). Unfortunately, I could not find a dealer that carried the 3 series to try in person, but it seemed like it would be optimal and very cost effective.

I also tried several Nordic Track treadmills in person. These seemed to have very unappealing walking decks (sproingy!, in a bad way) and even on high hp power machines, the motor seemed to power the track very unevenly.

I decided to take a chance that the 3 series would be as sturdy as the 7 series I tried---I am very happy. Amazon shipped the thing super-saver in a relatively short period of time--very appealing! It was very straightforward to assemble once I got the thing in place--parts are labeled and the assembly pictures are really self explanatory.

This treadmill is a great product--very sturdy and runs smooth. It is better than the treadmills that I was using at the high-priced gym where I was a member. The only problem that I encountered was getting it into the house--it took 3 strong guys grunting pretty hard to get it in the house. Once inside, though, set-up was easy and took about 30 minutes. The only thing needed was a phillips screwdriver ( the one supplied could have done it-but it wasn't too easy with it.) All in all, I am really happy with this treadmill--it's a well made product!

The only thing I wish this treadmill included was an option that would allow me to save MY settings for a workout. There are several pre-programmed workouts, and I've tried most or all of them. Over time, my speed is increasing, so I'm not using the pre-programmed settings as-is. I typically have to do one or more button presses each time the treadmill changes to another part of a program, in order to increase the speed to where I want it.

Aside from that, however, this is a wonderful machine. Our old treadmill had finally died after 10 years or so. And I hadn't REALLY been doing enough of a workout on it. With the Bowflex Series 3, I set the treadmill for the program and time I want and start working out. By doing this every day, I've started to slowly lose a little weight, and more importantly, my HDL (the good cholesterol) has increased over the past few months from 38 to a current 54 (goal is at least HDL of 60). I absolutely credit this machine for the substantial improvement in my health.

The Bowflex Series 7 is rated best by CR but was to much for me to spend. I was unsure about purchasing the Series 3 but, it has more then preformed up to expectation. This is a excellent treadmill and I would recommend it for anyone. My wife walks one or two times a week about one mile and I run about two miles three times a week and it has done great for both of us. It looks nice and folds up if needed.

I just recveived this treadmill after ordering on Amazon less than w week ago. It is a solid piece of machinery and goes together really fast. It took me 30 min to put together.

Hello Gang,

I just wanted to say because of your honest reviews I did feel very comfortable purchasing this product. I purchased the Bowflex Series 3 as opposed to other models in the same price range and class. Some notes for anyone considering the same purchase. I live in Maryland and had no problem receiving my purchased. I was quoted 3 weeks and I got it in two weeks. EGL was very helpful and at least my experience the staff was professional. Someone posted the number and address, which was also very helpful in tracking my purchase. For those of you, who call to track, keep in mind that your purchase is under your AMAZON name and address. It is better to use your tracking number when working with EGL shipping. Staff members by the name of Lisa, Monte, Jabar I think where all very helpful. My items arrive in Baltimore MD a week and a half after I order them. EGL was very flexible in getting my treadmill to me. You must request a 2 man crew; and call back and verify that a two man crew is in route or you may have to wait longer. Also if you want the treadmill in your basement bring the delivery men around back; their policy is to the front door. Which ever door it is should not matter, and really is none of their business. The treadmill is by and large extremely huge and close to the size of an oversized couch.

Now onto assembly details, my husband put it together for me. He is 6'0 and pretty strong, it took him about 3-4 hours to put it together while watching Sunday night football. A small power drill does help a great deal but is not required. Be careful not to pinch the wires while assembling the top portion (screen/panel). You may need an extra set of hands just to have someone hold the wires clear of the railing while you snap the top portion in.
