Verdict: Not Recommended

The Epic 600 MX treadmill has some solid features that make it attractive to buyers. However, it is a fairly dated model and there are just better new models on the market that give you more for the money (bigger consoles, more workout programs, more advanced electronics, longer warranties and better cushioning).

Product Pros And Cons

Epic 600 MX Treadmill

1) One Touch Speed and Incline Controls  – Instead of scrolling through your options (which can really throw off your stride), you just press a button and the treadmill adjusts to your desired speed and incline.

2) High 12 MPH Speed Limit  –  Many treadmills at this price point only give you up to 10 MPH – so the extra speed capability is handy. It gives you room to improve your fitness level over time and runners will also appreciate it.

3) ComfortStep Cushioning – A good cushioning system is crucial to protect your joints, especially if you plan on running. The Comfortstep cushioning system cuts impact on your joints by 15% as compared to road running.

While this isn’t the best cushioning system out there, it’s significantly better than your average department store treadmill.

4) 14 Built-in Workouts – You get 8 workouts that automatically adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill during your workout.  There are also 2 heart rate workouts that keep you in your target fat burning zone by automatically increasing the speed based on your heart rate. This treadmill also comes with customizable programs that you can design and save yourself.

5) Workout Fan – You can stay cool while you walk with the workout fan that’s built into the console. It’s a little thing but can help you stay comfortable during your workout.

6) Folding To Save Space – The Epic 600 treadmill folds up easily to save space. This is a fairly common feature but still a nice one, especially if you have a smaller workout area.
