This is another addition to Reebok’s range of affordable but effective treadmills, allowing runners to enjoy a high-quality workout at home.
It’s the best of both worlds really, easy to navigate for beginners, while also boasting some aspects of advanced functionality that will please experienced runners. We’re talking an adjustable fan to cool you down as you run, an MP3 input, two built-in 5W speakers and a nifty cushioning system. While it’s certainly true that there are treadmills in an equivalent price bracket which have a whole lot more than 24 programmes to offer, it’s worth asking yourself how many programmes you actually need. Even if you’re seriously into training, it’s only a handful of those you use regularly, right?
The only downsides we found were that the button display was slightly less pleasing to look at than other Reebok models (personal opinion of course) and the user interface lacks a cutting-edge LCD display screen. If this doesn’t bother you, the Reebok Jet 100 is a great investment.
