About the Bowflex T22 Treadmill

The Bowflex T22 is a high-end treadmill designed to give anyone an effective workout indoors. It’s known as the 22 because it comes with a 22-inch interactive full HD touch screen front and center. It uses the latest technology to ensure you enjoy and access the most reliable workouts.

The treadmill’s running surface is the most crucial performance spec since it tells you whether or not the machine will be comfortable or not. This treadmill has a 22″x60″ running surface that can comfortably hold all users. The running deck of the Treadmill 22 is quite spacious, but its sturdiness will catch your attention.

This treadmill weighs 336 lbs when assembled, which is quite massive for a home machine. This is a great feature since it creates a more stable base during workouts. It also has a maximum weight capacity of 400 lbs, higher than other treadmills in the same category.

The Treadmill 22 is quite strong to handle regular running at fast speeds. It has a top speed of 12 MPH, which is standard for most treadmills, but what makes it different from others is the 20% incline. Most home treadmills have a top incline of 15%, so if you want to take your workouts to the next level, you can take advantage of the 20% incline and 5% decline offered by this treadmill.

Overall, the Bowflex Treadmill 2 is a powerful and reliable treadmill with impressive performance specs that outshine most home treadmills out there.

What I Like

Design

The Treadmill 22 is truly a behemoth, as big and strong than what you would find at your gym. It weighs 336 lbs, so you need to ensure that your floor can handle such weight. This heavy weight translates to durability and sturdiness, supporting up to 400 lbs max user weight.

The Bowflex Treadmill 22 has a sleek, black matte finish with red and silver accents. What makes this treadmill stand out is the big 22 inches HD touchscreen. This HD display makes it a pleasure to watch your favorite shows, engage in scenic walks, and follow the workout classes.

My Verdict

The Bowflex has the Treadmill 10 and Treadmill 22, and I think the 22 is worth it if you have a good budget. The huge difference between the size of the HD touchscreen is big and visible. However, before choosing a treadmill, you should always consult your healthcare professional before starting your fitness journey.
