Reebok Jet 100 console
The Jet 100’s console features a 5-window LED so you can track your time, speed, distance, calories and pulse. There are 24 pre-set programmes to let you dive straight into endurance and interval workouts, then you can build on these with up to 3 of your own personalised workouts. Everything’s big – from the labels and icons to the display feedback – and it’s soft-touch too, so even when you’re on the verge of collapse it’s easy to make tiny adjustments to your work-out.
The Jet 100’s running deck boasts “Air Motion Technology” – which certainly sounds pretty snazzy. What it actually means is that you’re literally running on air – tiny pockets of the stuff, that squeezes through channels to cushion your foot at the moment of impact and then add a bit of extra spring as your toe leaves the belt. The benefits of this are that it lessens the strain on your knees, reduces the noise and encourages a better technique. Put all these together and it’s certainly easier to run in comfort for longer.

Expert review

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.
