Whether you’re preparing yourself for an upcoming race, trying to lose weight, or you just enjoy running, then the Boston Marathon Treadmill 4.0 is for you! It’s made of high-quality materials and you’ll be guaranteed of its top notch performance– it’s being advertised by the Boston Athletic Association, describing it as one of the best treadmills available in the market today.

We all know that running could be boring, especially if you’ve been doing that for a number of hours each day. That’s why the Boston Marathon 4.0 is equipped with iFit, as well as HD video workout to keep you motivated and entertained all throughout the duration of your workout. Though, that’s not all; just like The Official Boston Marathon Treadmill 3.0 model, Boston Marathon 4.0 also allows the users to compete with their fellow Boston Marathoners wherever they are– thanks to Google Maps, and it also has a hands-free control that allows the user to modify the pace they’re comfortable with. The 10” colored, touchscreen of this treadmill, together with its top of the class motor, makes it one of the most ideal treadmills for runners.

Notable Features

– Assembly Included
We’d all agree that assembling a workout equipment could be a daunting task that’s also time-consuming, especially if the equipment is so advanced. However, with the Boston  4.0, there’s no need to worry about any assembly or installation, because it already comes with the purchase.

– Decline and Incline
The motorized features of the  Marathon 4.0 are adjustable and you could modify it depending on your needs. It has a 20% incline and a 6% decline.

– iFit Included
Most treadmill brands have the iFit technology, because it brings the treadmill workout into a whole new level. It allows the user to enjoy virtual scenery around the globe and it also simulates every dip and hill of that site. Though, that’s not all; you could also virtually train with the fitness guru Jillian Michaels, and if you’re up for a competition, you could invite your Facebook friends for a marathon.

– SpeedRing
Connect your finger ring to a BlueTooth. There’s no need to touch the button just to control the setting.

– Cadence Coach
This feature is similar to a metronome. It allows the users to stay synchronized with their target speed.

– 15MPH Speed
For those of you who are not aware, most home treadmills could only support 12 mph the most. However, this unit holds an incredible speed of 15 mph

– Cushioning
With the Marathon 4.0, you have two options to choose from. This could be a full-length cushioning that could less the impact on joint, but you could also opt for a road-like simulation.

– Marathon Workouts
This treadmill could help you prepare for a marathon. To support that, the Boston Athletic Association’s coaching team actually made a contribution in the development of the Boston Marathon 4.0

– Motor
The motor of this treadmill has powerful bearings and brushes, a heat cut-off mechanism, and premium quality wiring. To attest its efficiency, it has been tested and it offers a lifetime guarantee.

– Touchscreen Console
The 10” Android browser of the Boston Marathon 4.0 allows the user to access their emails, even during their workout.

– Cooling Fans
Not just one, but two. The Boston Marathon 4.0 has two built-in cooling fans.

– Audio
Now, you could listen to your favorite music by connecting your iPod to this treadmill.

– High Capacity
It could hold up to 400 pounds.

– Warranty
6 years for parts and electronics; lifetime for frame and motor; 3 years for labor.

What We Don’t Like

Price
Despite the fact that it’s definitely one of the best treadmills available in the market today, we still think that it’s quite expensive. However, the ProForm has a solution to that– you could pay in installments for 18 months with 0% interest.

Final Verdict

If you think that the 4.0 is the treadmill for you, then, go for it! It’s one of the best treadmills we’ve reviewed so far, but if you’re looking for something that’s more affordable, you could always consider the Official Boston Marathon Treadmill 3.0 model as well.
