Despite its high price the Reebok ZigTech 910 offers surprisingly good value for money.It comes with a 3.0-horsepower motor, making it suitable for running on, a generous number of built-in programs (30) and incline levels (0-15%), as well as a Polar Chest Pulse Strap, speakers, a fan, and is even iFit compatible.
The ZigTech’s commercial-grade motor clocks in at 3.0 horsepower and is able to be set anywhere between 0-12 MPH at just a touch of a button, making it suitable to run on at full pace. Despite its power, the motor is quiet in operation and also runs smoothly, which isn’t always the case, even with treadmills priced at over $1,000.
The Reebok ZigTech 910 treadbelt measures 20” x 60” and therefore caters to a wide range of users, even those who are over 6′ and/or have a long stride, making it unlikely that you will feel confined as you work out.
However, the best aspect of the treadbelt is its ZigTech Cushioning system, as this is able to reduce the impact felt on the joints, allowing you to exercise for longer periods of time. Older users with joint trouble are also sure to appreciate the cushioning system.
The incline level can also be adjusted from anywhere between 0-15%, allowing to set your workout to be as challenging or as easy as you want it to be, all while giving you the opportunity to target different muscle groups.
With 30 built-in workout programs to choose from, including a variety of weight loss, sports training, healthy living, and heart rate programs, you should be able to find a program that is in line with your short term and long term goals and avoid monotony setting in, which is always a plus. It’s also worth noting that all the programs have been designed by a Certified Personal Trainer, so you know that they are both safe and effective to use.
The oversized 7” display provides you with all the important information that you would want to know as you exercise, including time, distance, speed, and calories burned. There is even something called a RaceTrack Display, which shows a graphical representation of your workout in a track-style format.
Furthermore, your pulse can be measured thanks to the inclusion of a Dual-grip AccuRate Heart Rate Monitor, allowing you to exercise in your target heart rate zone. It’s also nice to see that a Polar Wireless Chest Pulse Strap has been included, so you don’t have to purchase anything else separately to obtain a more accurate heart rate reading.
The Reebok ZigTech 910 is even iFit Compatible. You can, therefore, track your progress online, obtain access to an array of video workouts, and even plan a route to run through on Google Maps.
While the Reebok ZigTech 910 is a beast of a machine, weighing 279 pounds when shipped, it is easy to store due to coming with a SpaceSaver Design with EasyLift Assist. To put it simply, this allows you to quickly fold the the treadmill up and wheel it away.
Reebok certainly isn’t the first company to have equipped their higher-end treadmills (see the Reebok ZigTech 1410) with a fan), and we’re sure that they won’t be the last. However, where the ZigTech differentiates itself from its competitors is in the effectiveness of the fan. The fan, thankfully, isn’t just a novelty, but is actually able to provide relief in the form of a breeze of cool air during a tough workout.
Other features include an Intermix Acoustics 3.0 Sound System. While you won’t want to use these speakers when hosting a party, the sound quality is pretty good. There is also a compatible music port for your iPod.
The Reebok ZigTech 910 is backed with a lifetime frame and motor, 3-year parts, and 1-year labor warranty, which is one of the better warranties in this price range.

REEBOK ZIGTECH 910 REVIEWS by Users:
It seems as if users agree with us when we say that the ZigTech offers good value for money: “great treadmill for the price” as one user puts it. The ZigTech’s fan, along with its sturdiness, reliability, ease of use, computer console – well, pretty much everything the treadmill has to offer – have all also been praised.
However, it’s also worth noting that one user had a bad experience with Reebok’s customer service.
There is little to complain about. However, if we were being picky then we would say that the motor housing sticks out a little too far in front of the control panel, so you have to make sure that you don’t step on it as you run, although, after a few workouts you should be used to the design and avoid stepping on it. The assembly process, while being fairly straightforward, is also a bit time consuming. It should take you anywhere between 2-3 hours to fully assemble the machine.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU SHOULD KNOW?
The treadmill’s maximum user weight capacity is 350 pounds.
All that is left to say is that the Reebok ZigTech 910 comes recommended. It is a well constructed, durable treadmill that comes packed with a range of technological features and useful add-ons.
