The 5000 is a design that we have seen many time over the years. The way that the mast post supports the swing arms, at an angle, will cause it to fail prematurely over a vertical post. In other words it is a piece o' crap.

General Information

This brand is made by Paradigm Health and Wellness. We thought they had made up the name Exerpeutic until we saw that they make their treadmills on an open-loop system. Our guess now is that the name Exerpeutic must have its origins in a Latin term that means "Death Trap." They are cheap imports and on the whole, a rather horrible little unit that you want to treat as a leper.

Quality / Philosophy

Make a cheap unit and put as little value into the product seems to be the norm. It appears to be engineered to be built as cheaply as possible to entice those people who believe you can spend $399 and get a quality machine. They even have a cheap $699 desk treadmill that is a nightmare waiting to happen.


New brands pop up at the low end all the time. Like the horrible SportCraft treadmills that were sold at Walmart a few years ago, the Exerpeutic treadmills give us the same feeling when we opened up the hood and looked at the low quality parts that they used.
