The Tunturi Pure Run 4.0 is one of the high quality motorised treadmills that forms part of the Tunturi Pure range of exercise machines.
One of the most important features to look for when choosing a treadmill is the size of the running area.
While the required size will vary according to your height and running stride length, it is usually best to buy a treadmill with as large a running area as possible.
The Tunturi Pure Run 4.0 has been designed with a running area measuring 150cm x 50cm, which is amongst the largest available on a light commercial or home treadmill.
The speed of the running belt can be adjusted from its slowest pace of 0.8km/h all the way up to 18 km/h. With 22 km/h being just about the limit for light commercial treadmills, combining this with an incline of up to 12% provides challenging workouts for a wide range of fitness levels.
If you don’t want to have to alter your running speed to get to the display console and adjust the speed or incline, there are buttons on the handrails for quickly changing each of these settings.
This treadmill is also equipped with 4 support feet to make sure you have a stable workout if the machine is resting on ground that is slightly uneven.
Ease of assembly
With treadmills usually being amongst the larger exercise machines you can use in your home, it’s often assumed that setting the machine up when you first buy it can be difficult.
The stylish and simplistic design of the Tunturi Pure Run 4.0 means that this isn’t the case, and the entire treadmill is broken down into 7 parts including the safety clip.
With no need to build any handlebar sections or attach footplates, this is actually one of the simplest machines you can buy for improving your aerobic fitness, in terms of assembly.
Tunturi are well known for the quality of not just the exercise equipment but also the in-depth user manual that accompanies each of their machines.
The Tunturi Pure Run 4.0 manual features 6 pages of detailed instructions to make assembly easier, even detailing how to correctly align the running belt against the side panels.

Display console design
The Tunturi Pure Run 4.0 includes a display console that features the best of both worlds when it comes to displaying workout information.
While some Pure exercise equipment will display both the name of a training program and a small graph, to conserve space but still make it clear which workout program you are using the Pure Run 4.0 only shows the name and number.
For the heart rate controlled programs there is even a small heart symbol to differentiate these from the other programs which are purely resistance based.
The workout program currently being used, time, speed, distance, calories burned and even heart rate are all displayed in their own separate LED screens.
While on some treadmills this can make it difficult to see the workout information you need quickly, due to the simple layout design this isn’t really a problem with the Tunturi Pure Run 4.0.
The button options have been grouped together in the lower half of the display and include options to quickly adjust the speed and incline to preset levels as well as the buttons to adjust these settings in smaller increments (incline 1% at a time and speed 0.1km/h at a time).
If you are looking for something a little different to the usual ‘Quick Start’ running then the Tunturi Pure Run 4.0 lets you choose from a selection of 9 preset training profiles.
The first 6 of these are variations on resistance training, which also includes one program specifically designed for interval training.
The 3 heart rate controlled programs are set to automatically adjust to keep you in your target heart rate zone. You can either choose for the incline to adjust, speed, or a combination of the two.
The heart rate programs will require you to hold onto the built in heart rate hand sensors or wear a compatible heart rate chest belt.
