Reebok is no stranger to the world of fitness. However, what most of their fans don’t know is that Reebok also makes fitness machines and treadmills. The one we are looking at today goes by the name of Jet 100 and is easily one of the best treadmills you can get for $1000 or less. Join us as we go over the specs, features and performance this bad boy has to offer.
If there is one thing Reebok knows how to do, it’s aesthetics. Reebok Jet 100 is a great example of what we mean. This treadmill features a black/white/red theme that makes it real easy on the eyes. However, looks are not the only thing it has going on. The frame itself is pretty solid. We are talking thick steel tubing that inspires confidence, especially when you push the treadmill and yourself to the limit. One of its strongest features has got to be the running belt. It is a 51″ by 17″ unit that offers an impressive amount of grip. On top of that, Reebok has used their Air Motion cushioning technology which greatly reduces the amount of stress exerted on your joints as you run. Once you are done with your workout, you can very easily fold this treadmill into a compact package that is simple to store away. From a design point of view, Reebok Jet 100 has proven to be both aesthetically pleasing and practical.
Lets look at what hides under that great exterior. When it comes to the main motor, they have used a 2 hp unit that has no issues pushing you up to 10 mph with ease. Incline is motorized and comes in 12 different levels. You can select it manually or through one of the 24 programs which come as standard. The control module is pretty interesting. While completely functional to a fault, you could say that spending this kind of money on a treadmill would get you something better than a vintage LCD display. However, if you are not too interested in high tech touch screen displays, the one on Jet 100 will work just fine. In terms of other features, you have heart rate monitoring, a media hub with a USB port and a built in fan that can cool you as you run. In a way, Reebok Jet 100 is about as performance oriented as a treadmill can be.
All in all Reebok Jet 100 is a great machine to have in your home. Sure, it doesn’t come with a modern touch screen display, but chances are that you get your workout entertainment from another source anyway. We definitely appreciate how sturdy it is, as well as how performance oriented the programs are. It’s a no nonsense fitness machine whose main job is to get you in shape and keep you that way. Because of that, we feel that Reebok Jet 100 is easily one of the best treadmills you can get for this kind of money right now.
