Xterra TRX 4500 Treadmill Review - $999.00

  • Rating

  • How Long Will The Xterra TRX 4500 Last?

    While not likely to run like the Energizer Bunny, the TRX 4500 should provide a number of good years for the average to the every-now-and-again user. The consumer would be safe to have a good amount of faith in the TRX 4500 seeing as how the people who made it are willing to stand behind it with a reasonable warranty. Still, it is important to keep in mind the quality that this price tag allows.

    As always, we like to encourage users to take the time to read up on how to maintain a treadmill. Striving to create an ideal environment for your equipment will help to ensure a greater life expectancy.
  • Brief Overview

    Dyaco, the same company that produces Sole and Spirit, produces the Xterra brand. Though they have maintained the quality build that their other brands are known for, they tend to pale in comparison to other brands in the technology department. Likewise, the TRX 4500 has a solid build and valuable warranty but the built-in workout programs are not near the quality of the other brands' treadmills. Still, we have dubbed the TRX 4500 Runner-Up in our 2019 Best Buy race for the $700 to $999 dollar range.
  • Overall Quality

    There are a few different types of coffee drinkers in the world. Those who take the time to appreciate the yield from a percolator, those who enjoy the rapid convenience of the Keurig, and those who say, "screw it, I'm going to Starbucks." The TRX 4500 is most well-suited for the person who takes the time to still use a percolator. While there are thirty built-in workouts, they are not near the programming standards of treadmills made by say Icon or Johnson. But, if you are more interested in a well-built treadmill that will simply be a treadmill and not an in-home gym or person body-builder, then this is a treadmill to consider.

    The overall build is certainly a good trait for the TRX 4500. Additionally, one thing that helps the TRX 4500 stand out is the five-year deck warranty. While other warranties with other companies may include the deck in their frame or parts warranties, it is nice to see that Xterra would specify and add value to the deck along with the other parts of the treadmill.

    The other feature that stands out is the fifteen percent incline capacity. The standard incline range for treadmills in this range averages out at twelve percent. The other features are pretty standard: twenty-inch walking area, foldability, and ability to reach 12mph.

  • History

    We do not have prior reviews on this particular model, but please feel free to read our reviews on other Xterra models as well as other treadmills in this price bracket.
  • Conclusion

    Overall, we do not value the TRX 4500's programming as much as other treadmills in this price range. Even so, the actual utility of this treadmill helps to make it a contender. The 2019 Best Buy Runner-Up in the $700 to $999 dollar range comes equipped with a decent build and valuable warranty. This treadmill is a reasonable contender for the light to moderate user.
