If you didn’t know that the BXT216 is a folding home-use treadmill, you might think it’s a light commercial model from the performance specs. The 4.0 CHP motor and Comfort Tech deck suspension are high-end. The belt system has a three-ply track and 2.75″ rollers, which is exceptional for a home gym. Digital technology on Bowflex Results equipment is outstanding as well. An integrated 9-inch color screen is your portal to 11 built-in workouts and especially immersive cardio training with the Zwift exercise app. Four users can save their profiles, and workout data can be exported to the manufacturer’s Results mobile app or a variety of third-party fitness apps such as Apple HealthKit, Google Fit, and MyFitnessPal. A chest strap for wireless heart rate monitoring and an 8-week trial subscription to Dailyburn video workouts are also included with purchase. All in all, the new BXT216 exceeds our expectations for an under-$2000 treadmill.
