The lightweight Xterra TR150 is perfect for those looking to start a walking fitness journey. It weighs less than 100 lbs yet can hold users up to 250 lbs. The lifetime warranty on the frame gives you faith that this purchase will last but we would not suggest more than a light to moderate use for walkers to speed walkers. The 90-days parts and labor warranty offering is troubling as that is short in comparison to other models, but the 1 year motor warranty is decent.
The Xterra Fitness TR150 Treadmill is a suitable starter machine for home workouts for the budget-conscious user. It can be easily folded up and stored away, making it a space-worthy investment. With 12 preset programs that cater to all levels of users from beginner walker to speed walker – it is a great addition to your home gym. It is the base model of this series and there is not much difference between this treadmill and the TR200.
The Xterra TR150 is a decent choice out of the many options that have flooded today’s market and is not a complete waste of space. It carries most of the standard features of treadmills in this price category but comes up short in the incline department. When you are in the middle of your workout you do not want to exit your machine, reset your incline, and then resume your workout. Add to that it only has 3 incline levels to offer. The Xterra TR150 is a great tool for walkers who need to bring their fitness journey inside. It has an LCD console and Hand Pulse Grips that help you keep track of all your feedback and keep you focused on achieving your fitness goals. The TR150 also features a 2.25 HP motor to keep you going at speeds from 0.5 mph – 10 mph for an efficient and smooth workout. The 16” x 50” area is perfect for shorter strides, and it offers built in accessory holders and reading rack. The walking area may be cramped for many users.

The Xterra TR150 is a basic starter treadmill located on the lower end of the budget scale. It offers a commendable lifetime frame warranty at this price range and has features that can and do compare to other competitive models. The manual incline can be a pain unless you do not mind setting it before your workout begins or interrupting your workout to affect the change. Experienced heavy users should steer clear of this treadmill, but if you are just beginning to realize you need to start on your fitness path you will not go wrong purchasing this machine. Just do not expect it to stand up to years of use as most treadmills at these prices do not tend to last.
