Rated 4 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this treadmill I had bought a treadmill that was supposed to be delivered on Saturday, by Sears and the day it was supposed to be delivered they cancelled due to not having product. So the next day on Sunday the weekly flyer came out and I went down to Dick's and looked at the treadmills they had. I found this treadmill, and it had all the new technology with a color monitor. My other treadmill was 15 years old, wow, have treadmills changed. I had no problem with the ifit connection and have used the treadmill almost every night. I really like the programs that are installed and the maps thru ifit. I don't have a noisy fan so I feel lucky. I am using my treadmill for weight loss in combination with weight watcher's and although the treadmill can do a lot more than what I am currently using it for I also agree it was the best purchase of 2014. My friend's girlfriend told me this treadmill was better than what you see in the gym it doesn't get better than that! August 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by EPIC A42T Treadmill Only issue is wifi connection ... but EPIC customer service is excellent and the treadmill's warranty does not require you to buy one from the store. I had an initial iFit issue and EPIC spent over an hour on the phone getting we through a system reset to get the treadmill operational again. Because it is very high tech it will have some rather catastrophic software issues, but don't get frustrated... the reward is well worth the effort. Thoroughly enjoy this treadmill as I move from a high end Proforma i have owned for eight years and about wore it out... This treadmill has a very smooth motor, very rugged built, a little noisy but tolerable. The treadmill is one of the better sport equipment purchases I've made in years. July 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Treadmill, Excellent Support; iFit Lags I?ve had this treadmill for over ten months now, and my enthusiasm for this product remains strong. The frame is rock-solid and the power train is robust. The running deck is extremely comfortable - cushioned without feeling bouncy - and the noise level is minimal. The ability to change the height and tilt of the console was an unexpected bonus. I like using the built-in speakers for audiobooks and podcasts, but for music I much prefer an iPod docking station located close by. When I first got the treadmill, the speed changes were abrupt - hang on to the safety handles! - but that changed long ago. Epic updates the treadmill?s firmware regularly, and speed changes are now more gradual. Or at least that?s how it seems to me. The console display and view options on the A42T are nothing short of superlative. Depending on the type of workout you?re engaged in (e.g., Google map, goal-driven, programmed, manual) there will be anywhere from three to five available screen displays that you can cycle through by swiping left or right across the screen. These include your choice of Google street view, map view or satellite view in map-driven workouts; a generous lookahead of upcoming incline changes in map-driven workouts, or upcoming speed and elevation changes in programmed workouts; the proverbial quarter-mile track; a dashboard-type display of all current running metrics; and customized displays for the various types of goal-driven workouts (time, distance, calories, or pace). Individual readouts on the display allow even more flexibility. For example, the upper lefthand corner of the screen shows elapsed time by default. Pressing this button cycles through time remaining (in a programmed workout), pace, and average speed. Pressing the upper righthand corner of the screen cycles through miles run (the default), miles to go (in a programmed workout), and cumulative elevation. Pressing the middle button cycles through calories burned, current calorie consumption per hour, and heart rate. And when you?re done, the completed workout is automatically uploaded to your free or paid iFit account. ?Which brings up two issues: electronics and iFit. (I?ll save iFit for later.) I had no problem connecting the treadmill to my home wi-fi network and linking the treadmill to my iFit account. I?ve encountered only minor issues, none of which persisted, relating to logons, firmware updates and map downloads. These short-lived hiccups are the sort of stuff one runs into with any device connected to a wi-fi network. My good experience in this area may be attributable to the fact that I extended my wireless network by installing a wireless access point in my basement specifically to accommodate the treadmill. The A42T comes with 46 built-in workouts plus two video workouts. It?s interesting how Epic approached the issue of allowing users to alter the built-in workouts. Some club machines have a small number of built-in workouts but let the user adjust the overall ?level? of the program. Another treadmill I?ve used allows the user to alter the speed or incline of an individual workout segment, but reverts to the programmed speed and incline in the next workout segment. Epic took a middle ground. You can alter the speed or incline at any time during a programmed workout, and your changes stick until you push the ?Follow Workout? button that appears whenever you?ve made a change. For example, if you?re having trouble keeping up with the incline in a built-in workout, you can set the incline to a lesser grade until you?re ready to return to the programmed incline changes. A huge selling point of A42T is the download or creation of map-based workouts via iFit and Google maps. (This requires the paid version of iFit.) You can draw a route on either the treadmill or your computer, or download a wide variety of free and paid routes from the iFit web site, including a free ?workout of the day.? This gives you an infinite variety of programmed workouts, but eventually the novelty wears thin. I find it most motivating to create routes of places I already know. And persons training for a race can run the route indoors. As you run, the console displays static images that change every 4-5 seconds. The incline changes automatically to correspond to the terrain, which is where the decline capability of the A42T shines: the treadmill does a good job of simulating the uphills and downhills of running outdoors. You manually control the speed. The image quality is pretty good, but the overall experience is just not that immersive on a 10? screen. Also, a large number of the street view images face rearward, into oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, and despite a huge number of user requests, iFit does not allow you to map out a long route and run it in stages. Although iFit lets you program your own time- or distance-based workouts on the web site, the user interface for setting speed and incline levels is so cumbersome as to be virtually unusable. iFit for many months has noted its plans to produce additional video programs but so far has not delivered. And much of the statistical data displayed on the web site is difficult to understand. So the pattern I?ve fallen into is to buy a month or two of premium iFit; let it lapse for a while and just use the free version; and re-up for premium when I have a hankering again for map-based workouts. The built-in web browser is slow and stodgy. I can?t imagine even trying to use it while running (as opposed to walking). There is no zoom function to enlarge text. And try as I might, I was unable to play video from Netflix, Hulu+, Amazon Prime or any other popular site on the web browser, and my help request to iFit went unanswered. Epic?s customer service is excellent. The phone reps are based in Utah and are genuinely helpful. I had problems getting the treadmill to reliably display my heart rate when using the chest strap sensor. This was very important to me. After a substitute chest strap didn?t resolve the situation, Epic arranged for several service calls and replaced lots of parts. Ultimately the problem was corrected, and my heart rate now displays properly. (Note: At the time I bought this unit, none of the Icon treadmills offered heart rate-based *programs*.) Unfortunately, the fan in the replacement console is louder than the fan in the original. Button presses are not always recognized. And the pulse-grip heart beat sensors never worked right, even after several parts replacements. All in all, the A42T is a solid performer with some really cool features that more than meets my needs. iFit, though, needs more attention from Icon than it?s getting. May 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE IT! This thing is sooo awesome I can't even look at it without wanting to jump on it. Best Purchase of 2014. We got for an amazing deal as they were clearing these out. Paid 1/4th of the price. April 23, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fantastic features The A42T has a great amount of features to help you toward your workout goal. The addition of the iFit application only serves to improve your experience. So many options... March 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by No bang for the buck We bought this treadmill after our old treadmill quite working (about 7 years old). The treadmill was easy to assemble and has a strong motor. The biggest problem we found when using one of the programs you will see a graph indicating the incline and speed you will have. The graph consist of linear lines and a graph bar goes from a speed of about 5 increments. My daughter was running on the treadmill and it went from 4 mph to a quick 8 mph without giving any warning like our old model would tell by a series of beeps. She jumped off and after pulling the safety tag, it keep going. I spoke to the manufactures and they didn't have any answers. The incline never seem to sync up even after multiple times of calibrating it. I even had to pull out the leveler. The last problem that broke our back was an attempt to adjust the console to a different height. The motor would grind and it would not move. All of this within about six weeks. We definitely did not like the surprises in the program workouts. I am sure some people have had good luck with their machines, but this wasn't one of them! February 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great machine! Have had this machine for about a month. Overall, I love it! Some positives include: adjustable height of the console as well as the screen ( you can move the screen up and down). It really makes a huge difference to be able to move that screen up so you can see it well. The motor is very nice and I don't think it's that noisy. The cushioning is also great-I've had no aches yet. All of the parts work-except the right speaker. It may be a matter of pulling the console off and adjusting the wiring? Or maybe it'll need to be serviced-just haven't fiddled with it yet. The screen is lovely-well worth it and glad we paid more for a 10" screen. Really, the only negative is iFit. And it really isn't that bad, but it could use a lot of improvement. Maps doesn't ever work seamlessly and last night I had an issue with my workouts syncing, so I lost them. Thankfully, I snapped a picture with my phone and the data isn't completely lost. You'll need to get your own audio cable though to hook up your iphone or ipad. The sound isn't terrific, but very loud (even though only one speaker works) which is nice when you're pounding away running and trying to watch a show on your ipad (which reminds me-unless you're walking at a very slow pace, don't think you'll be able to use the web browser. It's way too difficult to browse the web while running. Plus, it really lags and is not worth the effort. Pretty much the screen is there for the beautiful street view maps and tracking your workout, really). The heart rate monitor probably works? I use it, but haven't double checked that it's accurate, although it seems like it probably is. Minus the very buggy ifit, this machine is well worth the money. I haven't missed one training for my half marathon (despite the snow storms!) and I do love all the free programs from ifit (Jillian's workouts really kick butt!!). We found a two year ifit subscription on ebay that equaled about $4.50/month and I think that's the way to go and worth the $ even thought it's so buggy. I've been able to map various races and beach runs all over the world and though the map works only about 80% of the time, it's still fabulous. It also matches the terrain and inclines/declines which is pretty fantastic. The fan feature is great and I love the two cup holders-they are big enough to hold a lot of stuff! Oh, and there is a little lip that easily holds an ipad and iphone. The only downside is my 10" ipad does cover the treadmill screen a bit and you miss out on a little scenery. Probably a 7" tablet would work great. Again, I just love this machine and I love that I can keep up my training despite the horrible weather outside! February 9, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice treadmill...Difficult to use I purchased this treadmill over a year ago and I STILL struggle to master the controls to make my workouts less about working the machine and more about my fitness goals. More programming/support information needs to accompany this machine. There aren't even any helpful websites to make me love this machine yet January 31, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent investment It meets all my expectations, it feels nice and smooth when running, love that I can be on internet and watching videos while I work out! It is simply great! January 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice machine This machine was the first treadmill that I had purchased. It has all of the features that I wanted, including a responsive/comfortable deck. The set up was easy enough with the help of one other person. My only complaint is that the machine was too wide for me to fit down a hallway and through a doorway. Because of that, I couldn't get the machine into the room that I wanted. For that reason, I did not give it five stars. December 29, 2013
