How long will the Xterra TRX 1000 last?

The Xterra TRX1000 is a basic starting treadmill for light users. It has a weight of 103 lbs. and Xterra markets a 250 lb. weight capacity for this foldable machine. While the lifetime frame warranty is impressive, the 90 days for the deck, parts, and labor is basically the manufacturer telling you this machine is not expected to last long in terms of repeated use. A casual to light walker who exercised a few times a week might get a year or two of use out of this treadmill. If you really baby it, maybe a few extra years.

Brief Overview

If you are just looking for a decent workout without any extra entertainment or technology, the Xterra TRX1000 is a solid choice when comparing to other models in this price range even though it falls short in the incline department. The TRX1000 offers 3 levels of manually adjusted incline. Competitors offer up to 10% automatic which is a game changer when it comes to lower end treadmills.

Overall Quality

For those who have limited space and smaller budgets, Xterra Fitness’s TRX1000 is designed to provide an easy and effective means of exercise. It has 12 built-in workout programs and a maximum speed of 10 mph - making it perfect for indoor purposes. And thanks to its folding frame that can be stored afterwards when not in use – this basic treadmill might end up being your best new workout buddy if you can get past the manual incline. The smaller walking belt makes this a great treadmill choice for light to casual walkers that are not too heavyset. The 2.25 motor is powerful enough to get a good walk going for fitness purposes and it does come with a 1-year warranty which is handy. The TRX1000 offers a 5.3” non-backlit display screen with 12 workout programs and quick push speed buttons, while pulse sensors are conveniently found in the handgrips. Other standard features include a cup holder and accessory tray.

Frank - Don't buy Jul 22, 2020

Do not buy mine broke in less than a year. They wanted me to buy parts for $250 when I purchased it less them a year ago for $325. The customer service is a joke left on hold I was told Stanford the supervisor would call me back of course he did not. After 5 phone calls, Stanford the so-called supervisor came to the phone and was rude would not tell me his mangers name after I asked several times. Don't waste your money buy another company's treadmill that is made better and has a customer service department.
