Endurance Elliptical Review Index
General Information:Endurance is imported by the same people that import Bodysolid, a company that dominates the strength equipment market in the specialty retail segment. These people are renowned for their warranty and their follow-through by taking care of the customer. The treadmills are just OK?nothing to write home about but the warranty can make the difference, especially in the low price segments. There was a recall on Endurance T7, T7.1, T8 and T9.1 models in 2006 for problems where the treadmill could unexpectedly accelerate or decelerate, possibly causing the user to lose control and fall according to the CPSC website so we would look at other brands right now.
Manufacturing Philosophy:These are made by the same company that is making the Steelflex and Fitnex line of treadmills. They would be a decent deal if they were a bargain basement machine since they have decent components backed by the best warranty in the business, but their current MSRP's have no relation to their value.
Company Outlook : We know that Bodysolid is doing OK with weight equipment, but at the latest shows they didn't even bother bringing a treadmill. It is difficult these days though to recover from speed variance problems. Like a bad venereal disease (is there a good one?), this line simply won't go away. We thought they were done when specialty dealers dropped them like a hot rock, but now they have popped up again like an untimely breakout at the Sam's Club website.
