Gold's Gym Crosswalk 570 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
Save your money and don't get a treadmill with Crosswalk arms. They are essentially useless.
You are better off going to one of the warehouse clubs and getting one of their low-end treadmills than spending $600 on a Crosswalk unit.
The Gold's Gym Crosswalk 570 is an overpriced treadmill that sells for $599. Crosswalk models are a trend that we wish would fade out. If you really want an upper-body or arm workout, get some weights. They are far less expensive and much more effective.
The walking area on this model is a decent size. The belt measures in at 20" x 55", which is a good 5" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on most of today's treadmills. This should still provide plenty of room for larger users to run on without altering their stride.
A weak motor powers this machine. Although that isn't uncommon at this low of a price, you can find treadmills with greater power producing capabilities without spending more money. Speeds of up to 10 mph are attainable, but we wouldn't suggest using this model for running. The structure and drive system will wear out quickly if you do an exercise routine that is more demanding than light walking.
A nice cushioning system comes on this model. AirStride Max Cushioning is used to reduce the impact walking has on your joints and back. Most of the other treadmills at this price point offer running surfaces that are equally durable and forgiving.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is okay. The life expectancy of this treadmill is comparable to most in this price range, but if you are willing to spend an extra $200, you can see a major increase in durability. The quality of parts is also not bad for how affordable this model is.
The warranty on the Gold's Gym Crosswalk 570 is not good. Parts and labor are covered for 1 year, the motor is covered for 25 years, and the frame is covered for life. Gold's Gym doesn't appear to feel comfortable standing behind this treadmill, and we can't say we blame them.
