The machine isn’t perfect, and we probably don’t recommend it for more advanced fitness regimens, but if you’re looking for your first exercise machine at a fair price, the York T501 treadmill can stand toe to toe with the best of them.

Product Description:

The York T501 treadmill offers several nice features to make exercising convenient. The display console is pretty straightforward, and offers six different program routines to help you stay fit. It also comes with a cup holder, handlebar cover, and wheels to facilitate storage. It is very compact, although if you miss a couple of strides, you’ll run out of walking surface so that’s a bit of a drawback.

Another nice feature is that you can temporarily pause a workout session and come back to it later without your information being lost. Some users have mentioned that the machine is loud, and several have reported having problems with the pulse monitor not working as it should.

So if you’re looking for a decent machine at a reasonable price that will require no gym equipment repair if properly maintained, the York T501 treadmill may be the right home fitness equipment for you.
