Treadmill Sensei is a sponsored blog created or supported by a company, organization or group of organizations. TreadmillSensei.com is a treadmill review website that is set as a blog and says over and over that it is committed to its readers. The website allows readers to contribute or they can ask Treadmill Sensei questions so that is pretty cool.
They are just not only a website and blog but have many different outlets to contact them. I saw they have a Twitter, Facebook Page, a Scoop.it account and others. They review around 40 different treadmill brands with countless numbers of individual machines also reviewed. All of the reviews seem fair and accurate.
There are about 15 different treadmill affiliate brands so that Treadmill Sensei takes the time to review other as well makes me think that they really take the time to go the extra mile for their customers. They must be an affiliate website because it’s not possible they are doing all of this research without making some money somewhere.
In only a few short seconds on the website I found this statement that really made me respect the site. Full disclosure of who they were and standing behind their evaluations. This is something you won’t see a lot of website do. The statement reads; “Even though the owner(s) of this blog receives compensation for posts or advertisements, we always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products.”
With all the websites out there to make money, you really have to respect the ones who fully disclose their business. This makes me feel like their reviews are also truthful.
The only issue is that there is not a full list of all the brands that they review. There is only 6 brands listed in one of the sidebars however if you click through the blog you realize that they review tons of different brands not just the most popular ones.
Treadmill Sensei claims to work on treadmills and has sold them in the past. He often brings things into his blogs and reviews from his life which gives the blog / reviews more credibility than someone who has little to no experience in the field.
A lot of these websites are just thrown together and never updated after keywords and traffic start hitting the website. You won’t have to worry about that here. Treadmill Sensei updates his blog almost every day with some interesting treadmill review, fitness tip or health related post.
By and large this website is great for the average person who is looking to learn more about treadmills. You can get honest reviews on this website however you might have to search a little harder than you normally have to. The brands of treadmills recommended by Treadmill Sensei are all of the popular and even some of the less popular machines and for the most part they are in a affordable price ranges. Reviews seem honest and knowledgeable which should be what you are looking for.
