York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill, Well made and cheaper than the gym

Excellent and one day i will sell it back to you very good value for money and as new. I was told that the carrier would help me put it up. . I think he thought i was mad. Never put one up in his life. Please do not tell people that carrier will do it as unless i was very unlucky it is not part of the contract.

Well made and cheaper than the gym. I’m very pleased with this treadmill. It’s a heavy, well made, substantial piece of kit which took about an hour to put together, single handed, and is now getting regular use. It’s going to save me a fortune in gym fees (together with the york cross trainer/bike) and it feels like it should last. For the price this was a no brainer.

York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill

  • The York Active 110 Treadmill offers users a sleek and simple treadmill with a speed range of 1 – 13km/h.
  • Ideal for beginners and intermediate users, the treadmill is suitable for walking or light running and features 13 pre-set programs, including a body fat analyser.
  • An elastic cushioned deck, hand pulse sensor and full LCD display and storage compartments complete the package.
  • Maximum user weight of 100kg

Very pleased with this, excellent value for money. Shame this display is only in km/hr, you can’t change to miles, and there’s no pause button, so if the phone rings or the doorbell goes, you lose your run so far. You do have to be a bit careful with the start/stop button on the handles – it’s very easy to hit the stop button by mistake.Then the treadmill slows to a stop, and you can’t stop the process. Really minor things, because overall, really pleased with it.

Easy to assemble and to use. Used primarily by elderly couple, so don’t get above 6kpm (although i did think they were mph). But also used by the grandchildren, one a gymnast and the other a footballer and they use the higher speeds. It is a pity that you cannot record your own programmes and there is no explanation of what each programme is designed for in the manual; and they appear a bit random. But i still give it 5 stars. Given the other reviews, i found it easier to assemble, move, lubricate and adjust than expected; and i also found it quieter than i expected. Very pleased with the purchase.

Works better then other products of similar range but not a heavy use equipment. Consumes lot of power, very heavy 65 kg. Not an easy to assemble it and fold it and chances of getting hurt while assembling which happened in my case. Poor instructions, expensive engineer call out in case of breakdown. Overall i would give 7 out of 10.

York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill : Really good treadmill, comfortable to both run and walk on, easy to use and am overall really happy with the purchase, just a shame it doesn’t have an incline.

  1. Easy to setup, well built, great machine. This treadmill was delivered very promptly and the delivery men were helpful in getting the box carried up to the house and into a practical location for unboxing. The instructions were very clear and the machine was incredibly simple to set up (the majority of it is in “one piece”). Having used this machine consistently for a few months, we’re very happy with this machine. It carries a bit of noise, but no more than any other treadmill i’ve ever used (including those expensive ones at gyms). The machine comes with useful quick speeds and programs that we’ve used frequently to support working out (in particular the quick speed settings make it so easy to get on with a work out). I particularly like the emergency stop clip that activates when detached from the machine via the magnetic disc at one end. Makes me feel very safe using the machine. Also, the main running section folds upwards using a “pressurised” mechanism, which is very practical and helps to avoid as many “carpet marks”. Overall, we’re very pleased with the machine and would recommend it (worth noting that it’s excellent value for the machine that you get).

    A lot of research but made the best decision. . Its incredibly sturdy, there is nothing flimsy or fragile about this treadmill. This is the 3rd one i have had (second york) in about 12 years and i am more than satisfied, it is a lot of machine for your money. Used it twice so far, has all the features one would only really expect from a treadmill costing considerably more than this, so i am happy and would recommend. It’s quiet too which is always important. Beware though, this is a heavy item. We had to get it upstairs and it took 3 people all of who collapsed in a heap afterwards. The manual tells you to check it’s adequately oiled, and i did check but it wasn’t, no problem though, a pot of oil is provided. This, i must admit, was fiddly, trying to push my hand under the bottom of the belt, but no big deal really in the grand scheme of things.

    1. Really pleased with this machine. Very easy to put together, but you will need to be patient and align the track correctly at the start to avoid problems later. I find the machine quiet and very robust even with my bulk running on it. I am already feeling the difference in using it from a stamina perspective, and my average walking pace has already increased a lot after just a short time.

    1. A very substantial treadmill feels it should have been more expensive. I only do the basics, but it has many features for the more advanced. Very pleased with it so far.

    Be prepared of the maintenance. So i bought this for my home gym after searching the internet for the best treadmill, whilst sticking to a rather low budget. I didn’t want to go any cheaper as the cheaper ones seemed very flimsy, this one is durable and strong but i’ve had numerous issues with this machine which would have probably put me off buying it before. This was mainly down to the following:1. Maintaining the machine, you are told to regularly apply lubricant to the machine, yet the instructions are so poor i had to check youtube for a guide. Once it had been lubricated i realised that the running belt wasn’t aligning properly and kept slipping to one side, so again i had to youtube the issue. I found out it was down to one side being tighter than the other, so losen or tighten one of the sides to balance it, sounds easy right?. Well after about 10 attempts and an hour spent i eventually got the belt re-aligned and working. However my problem wasn’t solved still as i began running on the machine and it was making a funny noise, the only advice i could get was to apply more lubricant, which of course meant going through stages 1 and 2 again. This was all before i’d even had a proper run on the machine which was frustrating to say the least. Also this machine is pretty big, i have my own dedicated gym so space isn’t so much an issue but for a standard house i think this would take up a lot of room and space may be an issue.

    Arrived when it said it would. Was very easy to assemble (with the help of a strong man) but works perfectly. Is a little loud, but we are doing fine.It folds up easily enough also to create space when needed.

    1. The treadmill is not noisey, does not take up too much space in our spare room, and folds up to move out of the way if necessary, you can monitor the calories you are burning, the speed and incline you are walking/running. My family are making good use of this product.
