Customer Questions & Answers
Yes on both counts that is accurate, I have owned 4 different treadmills before buying this one and they all have a line across the belt and as the join (the line) goes over the front and rear rollers it makes a thudding sound.
It soon fades away over time but they all have it even the ones at my gymnasium had them, you just don’t notice the sound as you are in a huge gymnasium and there is music playing and people talking etc.
Hi, no you need to purchase these separately from the website.
My running deck seemed ok but I did call the company and they did say they do apply some when they pre-test the treadmills however if the weather is very cold or very hot by the time the treadmill reaches the customer it can dry up during travel time and possible storage at other warehouses so it is always worth putting your fingers under the belt (when the machine is off obviously LOL) and seeing how it feels, if its dry apply a few lines as per the guidance in the user manual or video links Branx emails over, DON’T OVER LUBRICATE just a few lines under both sides of the belt, as far in as you can reach don’t stress too much as the belts are pretty tight and DO NOT LOOSEN OFF THE BELTS TO LUBRICATE THE DECK whatever you do, it’s impossible to get the tension correct ever again.
Hello Katrina, I use my elite treadmill daily more then I should really, but I couldn’t afford a commercial one and this is not letting me down, I am all about timings etc and I would say it’s not as accurate as a commercial one you use in the gyms but it’s pretty accurate, from other treads I have owned some have been out by around 20-25% so I am really happy with this model I have.
Be careful with APPS and other devices like that as they don’t take into account, you’re not actually walking on the road etc you’re on a belt that is moving so the speed your device shows or APP you are using (unless it’s all built into the machine) will never be that accurate, it doesn’t necessarily mean your treadmill speed is not accurate.
The blue round disc is a Twister plate, that you stand on and twist side to side and this helps you strengthen your core.
No, we have recently removed the fan and replaced it with a pause function.
No, it doesn't. I use a Zwift foot pod when on this treadmill. I did extensive research when buying a treadmill as my primary purpose was to use it with Zwift. All of the Bluetooth connected treadmills I found were extremely overpriced for the functionality. When researching further there wasn't much benefit of having a treadmill with inbuilt Zwift connection vs the foot pod (still a faff to set up and similar accuracy). So, I purchased this treadmill and use my foot pod - it's great!
I would encourage to you do your own research though, as I brought it a couple of years ago so the technology may have moved on! Branx also confirmed that the Bluetooth function is just for music playback.

It does give you how many calories you are burning but it goes of the speed, incline and time on the treadmill not your weight.

It's the first treadmill I've had, so can't compare to anything - but I find it very robust and sturdy. Definitely not flimsy!
It depends on the age of the machine, how well it’s been looked after and where it’s been used.
Generally, for all treadmills it is advised that you should wear suitable footwear and not to use any treadmill barefoot.

Hi there, you should allow a couple of ft at least all around the treadmill. So approximately the floor space of the treadmill is L: 190cm x W: 55cm so add on a couple of ft around this.

Taiwan and Germany.
Hi there, I am afraid we cannot deliver to Pakistan. Many Thanks.
Hi there, not a silly question at all and one we are frequently asked in fact. We have made many attempts to have this question answered as accurately as possible by contacting some of the largest electrical firms in the UK and putting this question to them, providing them with motor power etc and the best answer we have received is to use a smart meter in your home and see what it does but as far as there concerned it should not be more than any other appliance. Hope this helps.
Hi there. Outdoors definitely not, no treadmill should be used outdoors. If you are referring to an outbuilding etc then yes it will be fine as long as it is sufficiently insulated and dry. I hope this helps.

Hi there, technically no home-use treadmill is comparable to a brand-new high tech full commercial treadmill, that said many of our customers do in fact prefer the elite run pro over a gym treadmill, in all honesty it really is personal preference.
