Treadmilltips.com looks like a lot of other treadmill review websites. Nothing flashy here. They do review a lot of brands and a lot of machines. One of the best features of the reviews is that it has treadmills that have been discontinued labeled and you can still access the reviews. Overall the reviews are very insightful.
The website doesn’t look like an affiliate website. It is loaded with advertisements and other things they seem to be trying to sell. I understand that they must make money and what not but I wish that the website was put together a little more fan friendly.
Speaking of fan friendly, TreadmillTips.com does have a Facebook page but it doesn’t seem like they have updated it in months. While they have well over 2000 likes which is pretty impressive I feel like they created this website and stacked it with ads and then left it.
The reviews do seem to be well done. So at least they took the time to review a lot of brands and doing so with lots of good information. They also have a blog on the website. It is very difficult to find. For some reason they don’t have a RSS feed or a blog tab but if you happen to click on what’s new you will find a blog that have some interesting articles. However, the time and effort spent on the reviews doesn’t seem to have translated over to the blog.
One cool thing about the reviews that not everyone else uses is that they do a treadmill benefits sections and a treadmill weakness section of each model or brand. This is really nice because you seem to get an honest opinion of both the strengths and the weaknesses of each opinion.
Overall treadmilltips.com is not a terrible website but it could use a facelift. When you are looking for treadmill reviews sometimes getting straight to the point is better than giving us a run around your website navigating advertisements and all of the mumbo jumbo. I would go other places if you want a quick review that gets to the point.
