What We Like
- Program variety: Eight built-in personal trainer programs automatically adjust the treadmill’s incline and speed to match user goals. Two heart rate control programs and space for four user-designed “Learn” programs are also included.
- Incline: The 12% incline helps stimulate a variety of muscles and improves the efficiency of exercise.
- Console: The console can easily be read by people of all different heights. It includes a fan to keep trainees cool and comfortable.
- Motor: The 2.5 CHP motor supports a user weight of up to 325 pounds. It’s sold with a 12-year warranty.
- Heart rate monitoring: Pulse is monitored through handlebar grips.
- Space-saving: The Epic 600 MX treadmill can be folded with Easy Drop self-folding technology.
- Warranty: This model has 12-year motor warranty, a two-year parts warranty, and one year of labor coverage.
What We Don’t Like
- Track: The track measures 55”x20”. It has a ComfortStep™ Impact Absorption system, but that’s not a particularly outstanding shock absorber. Treadmills with longer and better-cushioned tracks can be found for this machine’s MSRP of $1499.
When it’s on sale, the 600 MX stands out for offering high-quality workouts that adapt to the user. However, normally this treadmill just doesn’t beat the competition. For a similar MSRP, competitors offer better basics plus audio, iFit Live, touchscreens, and other extras.
