York Fitness Active 120 Treadmill, Just what I needed

Brilliant product, however ‘white glove service’ was a farce. . Lovely product, really enjoying it. Not too loud – however the delivery company amazon used (arrow) were horrendous. Swore and moaned the whole time. The ‘white glove service’ that is listed on this product was unfortunately false in my instance. I’m glad i was the one home and not my partner, as she would have been absolutely terrified. The single thing i have bad to say about the product is the decals were scratched off and incomplete. But as that is entirely asthetic.

It starts but runs 1 minute then stops. I want one technician to check it before return.

Superb piece of exercise equipment. Have been using this at least three times a week for the past six months. It’s very solid and reassuringly heavy. I got a friend who goes to the gym all the time to test it and he said he was impressed with how solid/strong it is. This was the only treadmill i could find for under £400 (or anything close) to have an automatic incline function – all the rest had a manual 2/3 stepped incline at best. Its top speed (16kph) is way above what i’ll ever achieve and isn’t anywhere near as noise as i was expecting.

We bought this treadmill as it seemed to be the best out there for the price. The delivery service was excellent and it was packaged well. We have used it a few times now but still getting used to it. It runs well and the incline mode is very good.

York Fitness Active 120 Treadmill : A little narrow but apart from that good. Admittedly the first treadmill i had went crackers. However, the man came out and looked at it quickly and replaced it. I think if i was buying another i might go for a wider one though. I sometimes catch the side when running.

    Could use some improvements. It’s extremely heavy so it was difficult to unpack, but the quality is good. We’ve had it for over a month and it’s used about 5 times a week and so far no problems at all. It’s easy to use and the controls are good. I only have 3 complaints about it:- i don’t like any of the programs and i would like to be able to create my own. It would be great if it was possible to connect to an app to create them. Also, it would be great to have the ability to personalise the speed/incline buttons in the main panel. – the pulse monitors are very slow and inaccurate. I’ll be getting a smart wristband soon, which should be a lot more accurate counting the lost calories. – would be nice to have a stand to put a phone or a tablet.

    Only negatives are that the belt is. Only negatives are that the belt is a little short, and it tends to slip to one side or the other quite a lot. It’s pretty easy to adjust, just a bit annoying. Could do with a bottle holder and phone/tablet rest, but these aren’t really deal breakers for me. It’s definitely a 2 person job to assemble it.

    A good fairly basic treadmill. I found the running band a little narrow so it took some getting used to and it would be great to have a bottle holder, but otherwise it’s a good treadmill.

    Very sturdy machine, feels like your at the gym. Delivered on time, perfectly packaged and only slight assembly required couple of screws to my relief. Very sturdy machine, feels like your at the gym. Particularly like the incline to give you that extra workout. I would of give 5 stars but just lacking a water bottle holder. Other than that i would highly recommend and good price. Also pause button, you just need to press start again.

      1. Good treadmill to run on and the incline feature is good but be warned the heart rate monitor just gives random numbers for your hr and the programs dont work as described in the manual. They are supposed to offset from your current speed, so if you are at 8 and the program steps up 1 it should go to 9. It takes you to whatever the program is set to next eg 2 which is bad because a speed of 1,2,3,4 is too slow to even walk on and the majority of the programs all start at 1.

Purchased to replace a worn out previous york model – no bad points for the moment -good value as got a good discounted price -i would rather the designers put an accurate calorie counter in the on board computer instead of the body fat calculator – when all said and done most people that use them like me already know that they are overwieght- if when you enter your stats it used them to calculate the cals burnt instead of giving a basic it would be better but then again price is a factor here and i haven’t paid 1000. I find the running belt sounds more hollow like you are running in an alley from my last one that was more of a dull thud but that’s proberbly but to slightly the different material of the running belt. Good speed range ,good incline range and a good selection of programs and settings -i love it.

    Would be helpful if installation came included particularly for home users because it is very heavy.
