The main goal of any treadmill is to replicate the effects of an outdoor running experience indoors, while reducing the long term impact on your knee and hip joints.

Not only will this help keep you injury free, but it can also be a much more convenient way to keep up with your fitness routine, particularly if you find it hard to motivate yourself to run in poor weather.

To help create a more realistic outdoor running experience, the Branx Fitness Elite Runner Pro treadmill has been designed with an impressive 22% auto power incline.

This is designed to emulate the feeling of running up hills, and helps to create more high intensity training options within the preset workout programs.

But to maintain running belt speeds of up to 23 km/h even at this high incline takes a powerful motor, which is why Branx have fitted this running machine with a powerful 3.5 CHP (continuous horse power) home motor.

As well as creating a more intense workout, the higher incline settings are excellent for recruiting more of your hips, quads, and glutes into the exercise.

One final design feature worth mentioning is the size of the running area.

While the incline and speed settings are certainly important, if you don’t have enough room to build up a natural running stride then you’ll never be able to take full advantage of them.

The Branx Fitness Elite Runner Pro features a running area that measures 56″ (L) x 21″ (W). This extra long 2 ply tread belt is well suited to taller users that would otherwise be restricted on some of the lower priced models.

Display console design

[one_half]The Branx Fitness Elite Runner Pro also features a display console that’s a combination of workout functions, workout statistics, safety features, and entertainment options.

The safety features come in the form of your standard emergency stop button, as well as a safety key which connects to the display console.

With one end attached to the console and the other attached to your clothing via a short length of cord, this will quickly bring the running belt to a stop in the event of a trip or fall causing the clip to disconnect.[/one_half]

For the button functions, your standard ‘quick start’ and ’emergency stop’ options are accompanied by a series of ‘quick select’ speed and incline settings.

These will automatically adjust the running belt speed and incline to preset levels, which is considered a must have feature if you plan on using the treadmill for interval training.

The 7″ LCD display screen is segmented into a number of easy to read sections, and is ideal for keeping track of your important workout information.

This includes your speed, distance, pulse, incline, time, and calories burned.

In terms of your entertainment options, although they are slightly more limited than some treadmills, you do still have the option to connect your MP3 player via the input socket and connector cable provided.

The ‘Elite Runner Pro’ Treadmill also comes with their LAPS Feature included, enabling users to record their laps and position around a virtual running track.

Customer reviews

When you’re thinking about buying a new treadmill, it will often be the case that you don’t get the chance to try the machine before you buy. This is where customer reviews can be particularly useful.

On Amazon alone we were able to find over 60 customer reviews, the majority of which rated the Branx Fitness Elite Runner Pro at the full 5 stars.

This is the kind of average rating you should look for when buying any new piece of fitness equipment, but particularly when you’re looking to buy a treadmill.

Because reading through all of these reviews individually can lead to the same pros and cons being mentioned time after time, we’ve provided a quick overview in the form of the lists below.

Pros:

[tie_list type=”checklist”]

  • Excellent customer support
  • Effective shock absorption system for lower impact on your hip and knee joints
  • At 56″ in length, the running area is suitable for a wide range of user heights up to 6ft
  • Quick to assemble – many reviewers report setup taking no more than 30 minutes thanks to the running belt already being tensioned and aligned
  • Higher incline and speed settings than many similarly priced machines
  • Intuitive display console controls are easy to use
  • Wide range of different workout programs

[/tie_list]

Cons:

[tie_list type=”cons”]

  • Not a great deal of power being passed to the fan
  • Occasional issues with delicate parts being damaged in transit, but this is possible with any treadmill you buy and doesn’t seem to happen often. When it does, Branx are quick to respond and resolve the issue. It’s certainly worth having a read through customer reviews to find out just how highly rated their customer service is!
