The Endurance T100 treadmill is a level above the Endurance T10HRC so to speak, as it offers a slightly wider running surface, running speed settings up to 12 MPH, being also larger and heavier. It’s an older treadmill model, so its console doesn’t have advanced features such as online connectivity. But nonetheless, it’s a commercial grade machine, with a solid construction, offering a decent array or fitness programs.

Frame and deck construction

The Body-Solid Endurance T100 treadmill features a high tensile strength steel frame, precision-welded and coated with corrosion resistant paint. The only combination of colors available for this machine is silver and black. The machine is fairly large, with a footprint of 84″L x 35.5″W (214 x 90 cm), and the deck doesn’t fold. It’s also an body-solid endurance t100 treadmill - roller and beltextremely heavy machine, weighing over 400 lbs when fully assembled. Thus, it’s not meant to be moved once it is fully assembled. Its front metallic base does, however, integrate a set of wheels, but their purpose is to facilitate the elevation of the incline mechanism.

The rear base of the deck features rubberized, adjustable stabilizers. However, due to its weight, stability will never be an issue with this machine. It’s recommended, though, to be placed on a rubberized mat.

The Endurance T100 is equipped with an Enduro Flex phenolic, double-sided, and wax-lubricated deck, which integrates 6 elastomers designed to absorb up to 40% of the workout impact. Therefore, since a run on this treadmill results in a lower impact, you will be able to perform longer runs or more intense workouts. The sound of your cadence is also partially absorbed. The machine’s deck is rated for a maximum user weight of 330 lbs (150 kg).

The machine’s running platform integrates large, 3″ rollers, which integrate sealed bearings for a prolonged lifespan and smooth operation. These large rollers create a greater contact surface with the belt, this way reducing motor exertion while creating a steady, fluid and quiet motion. The running platform also integrates copper ground wires to minimize the static effect.

This Body-Solid treadmill offers a running surface of 60″L x 22″W (152.4 x 56 cm), large enough to accommodate users up to 6’5″ (195.5 cm) comfortably. It’s equipped with a 2-ply, anti-static belt, which provides excellent foot adherence and comfort during running.

Incline and step-up height

This Body-Solid Endurance treadmill is equipped with a motorized incline system, which offers an incline range between 0% and 15% (0 – 8.5°). Adding an incline to your endurance t100 - inclinerunning, jogging, or walking workouts can considerably diversify your training routines. Therefore, this feature is quite a plus.

Evidently, since the incline is motorized, it can only be adjusted from the machine’s control board. For this, you can use the Up / Down keys to adjust incline gradually, or the quick keys to instantly select the desired incline level. Also, some of the workout programs in the console’s database involve incline; therefore, if you choose them for your workouts, incline (along with speed) will adjust automatically.

The deck’s step-up height is approx. 9″ (23 cm). Also, the maximum incline elevates its front part by at least 5 extra inches (12.7 cm). Therefore, make sure that the ceiling height in the room where you will be using the machine, is at least 22-23 inches (56-58 cm) higher than your height, to avoid any issues.

Motor

The Endurance T100 treadmill is equipped with 3.0 CHP motor, designed to outperform the motors of any treadmill rated for home-use. The motor is equipped a large diameter, balanced flywheel, designed to minimize vibration so that the belt can provide a smooth and steady motion. The machine also integrates an Enduro Motor Filtration system, body-solid endurance t100d - motorwhich cools and cleans the motor, allowing it to maintain maximum performance for long training sessions, and considerably increasing its lifespan.

The starting speed for the machine’s belt is 0.5 MPH, and up from there, you can adjust speed in increments of 0.1 MPH, up to 12 MPH. Differently put, the treadmill’s speed range is 0.5 – 12 MPH, perfect for users of all levels. Also, since speed can be adjusted in 0.1 MPH increments, gives you the possibility to find the perfect pace for your workout.

Speed can be adjusted gradually, from the Fast/Slow controls on the console, but quick speed controls from 0 to 9 are also available, so you can quickly input the desired speed.

The motor itself is fairly quiet, the level of noise produced by it shouldn’t interfere with your TV, the music played through the console or your personal sound system. Most of the sound that you will hear during your running, is the sound of your cadence.

Evidently, since it’s a motorized treadmill, the Body-Solid T100 requires to be connected to a 120V power circuit. There are actually two T100 versions, T100A and T100D. This is the T100D model, specific to the U.S. DC standards. The T100A is for international AC standards.

Last but not least, the motor itself is fairly quiet, the level of noise produced by it shouldn’t interfere with your TV, the music played through the console or your personal sound system. Most of the sound that you will hear during your running, is the sound of your cadence.

Control unit

The Endurance T100 commercial treadmill features a console with a set of 5 LED-based displays. The top large one shows the workout program matrix, the vertical one to the right shows the heart rate interval, the long horizontal display show distance, kcalories, endurance t100 - consolepulse, mets, and pace, while the three lowest displays indicate the incline level, time elapsed and speed level.

The console has 14 pre-set workouts, 12 of them having a direct access key on the control panel. These programs include Hill, Fat Burn, Cardio, Calorie, Interval, Strength, 5K Run, 10K Run, Custom, Fitness Test, Manual, and Heart Rate. The Custom program allows you to create your own program. Distance can be calculated in both miles and km, while speed can be calculated in MPH or km/h. But since this is the T100D model, the default units are miles and MPH.

The control unit allows you to input personal data such as age and body weight in order to provide a more accurate reading of the calories burned. There is also a trail function which displays distance as a 1/4 mile track, keeping count of the laps that you have completed, a feature great to use if you want to train like a pro athlete.

The front handlebars of the machine integrate metallic pulse sensors, however, the console is also telemetric, being able to read your pulse via a wireless HR chest strap transmitter. This accessory is not included, though.

Since the T100 is an older treadmill model, the console doesn’t integrate amenities such as sound system or cooling fan, nor it has online connectivity. However, there are several accessory trays molded in the dashboard’s surface, allowing you to keep close at hand small accessories, such as TV remote, earplugs etc.

Assembly and Maintenance

First of all, since this running machine is extremely heavy, at least two people are required for its assembly. The assembly process itself is not complicated, though. The deck with the motors come pre-assembled. Therefore, you only have to connect the two console masts, then mount the handlebars and the console. This shouldn’t take more than one hour. The included manual provides clear assembly instruction, however not all tools required for assembly are supplied, only the Allen wrenches. You will also need a Phillips screwdriver and an adjustable wrench.

Maintenance requires keeping the belt clean, to prevent any small objects or fibers to be dragged into the motor. Lubrication is not necessary, at least for a long period of time, since the deck is pre-waxed from the factory. Also, the periodic inspection for loose bolts and nuts is recommended.
