Golds Gym Treadmill Reviews
Another licensed brand for Icon Health & Fitness. They put this brand in Wal-Mart over the past few years and they have sold like hotcakes! Some of the newer models at the higher price points are on par with Proform and the entry-level NordicTrack units at a bargain price. If you buy their sub $400 units, you are getting what you deserve- a piece of junk for $400. These are mainly units made for the casual user. If you are looking for a serious machine, nothing to see here?keep moving on.
Quality / Philosophy
Gold's Gym is produced by Icon, a company with thousands of employees and large resources. The Gold's Gym models are at the bottom of the Icon quality range. But, their machines have the best design in the business. Icon has a long, storied history that provides an example of how the big keep getting bigger. Icon used to be the mass-market darling because of their cheap prices but they used to have quality to match. These days they put more quality into the machines and pack them with features. Service by most of the lower priced companies can be spotty but you get what you pay for.
Icon is the largest fitness equipment producer in the world with over $1 billion in sales. If the fitness industry were a solar system, Icon is so powerful that they would be the Sun. Although you get a great value price for the product, you also get value service so keep this in mind when buying their machines. We don't get nearly as many complaints about Icon's service as we have in the past. Due to the sheer number of units they produce, we pick up support in many cases where this factory leaves off.
