Due to the fact that this product is quite technologically-advanced getting the console setup correctly can be difficult. If you do this wrong you may be left with a treadmill that does not function correctly.

Disadvantages

Some people will find it exceptionally difficult. You can always pay for assembly service but, of course, this is going to be an extra charge. When you're already making a large investment this can be a major frustration and disadvantage. The other place that we see some complaints has to do with the iFit application. Consumers have noted that it crashes frequently and sometimes the sink time is exceptionally long. This again is more of an inconvenience but it can lead to a lot of frustration. The way they provide the free year's membership is also frustrating to some people. You will end up paying for it up front and then being reimbursed at the end of the year.
