A cool little side note about the Woodway 4Front, we service the Memphis Grizzlies 4Front Woodways! Yup, so if a professional basketball team of 300-pound, seven-foot men can confidently use these treadmills, you should be good. We have no doubt that the 4Front treadmill will be a very durable treadmill for you.
Even still, please be sure to take good care of your treadmill. Maybe buy a treadmill-only pair of tennis shoes and get a nice room to store your treadmill in. This way, you can be sure to protect your investment.
It isn’t hard to buy the best of the best when you have a huge budget. The Woodway 4Front is an outstanding treadmill, but you will certainly pay a heavy price. While we do appreciate all of the quality in this treadmill, we cannot confidently say that there isn’t a treadmill out there that will give you similar quality for a little less. Consequently, we have placed the Woodway 4Front in our Third Place slot for our 2020 Best Buy Awards in the $6,000 dollar and Up category.
You may have seen the new Peloton Tread treadmills and marveled at the platted walking belts. Well, ladies and gents, you are looking at the OG of platted walking belts. Woodway is the company that created platted walking belts. Hence why the 4Front is so expensive. It is hard not to want to purchase such cool technology from the people who brought it to the residential treadmill world.
But, maybe we should look at the 4Front for what it is not. This treadmill does not provide the same technology as some of the other treadmills on the market. And while the build is remarkable, there are not as many workout features that the 4Front is capable of. Additionally, you are a tad limited on the people who are able to service a slatted belt since they are not common (of course, you already know of one trusty source *wink*wink*).
In all seriousness though, we do not rank the 4Front as high on our list as others because the price tag is very high and there are not as many features to back it up. Sure you have the build, belt, and company and even the console depending on which one you choose. But, really, the majority of your money is going towards Woodway’s name and innovation. So, you have to decide if you really love the 4Front enough to spend this much on a treadmill that does not offer as much as others.

In previous reviews, we have been pleased with the 4Front’s beautiful, huge display with the TV version. We have commended Woodway for making a treadmill with a great feel, low noise, and no maintenance make for an excellent machine. Though we have recognized how expensive this treadmill is, we have sad that the Woodway 4Front is one of the few treadmills that can claim to be the last treadmill you will buy.
Bottom line, the Woodway 4Front is just a cool treadmill. It is built with a solid construction, innovative design, and even looks a little futuristic- but what do you expect from a treadmill that is nearly $10,000 dollars! While we like the quality of the 4Front, we do also realize you may be able to get more for your money from a different treadmill. Evidently, we have awarded the Woodway 4Front with our Third Place 2020 Best Buy Award for the $6,000 dollar and Up category.
