The assembly goes very quickly with two people, but it can be accomplished by one in about 45 minutes.
What We Love About the Trail Racer 6.6 Treadmill:
Our favorite design feature of the XTERRA 6.6 Treadmill is the convenience features of the machine. They provide the normal stuff you find on treadmills in this price range like speed up to 12 mph, 15 levels of motorized incline, quick adjust speed and incline buttons, but there was one feature we especially liked. You can adjust your speed and incline from the console, but this treadmill also put controls for those on the handlebars. This is great. This allows you to be able to hold on until you get your legs under you during the adjustments, plus you’re not reaching for the console where you can lose your stride or momentum. We love this feature.
What Isn’t So Great:
The XTERRA Trail Racer 6.6 Treadmill comes with a meager 12 workout programs. That’s at the very low end for treadmills in this price range. We like preset programs because they break up the monotony of running on a treadmill and provide a motivational tool throughout the exercise. If you’re like us and are looking for some workout programs, take a look at our reviews of the LifeSpan, ProForm, Schwinn or Nautilus treadmills. They may be more up your alley. Beside lack of programmed workouts, the Trail Racer 6.6 Treadmill also lacks any ability to download and track your workout performance.
Final Word on the XTERRA Trail Racer 6.6 Treadmill:
You can find the XTERRA Trail Racer 6.6 Treadmill online for under $1,200, which is a great price. This is a well-constructed, sturdy and strong treadmill. It has good components like the 3.0 CHP motor and 2.36” rollers to provide a smooth and stabile running surface. It also has great features focused on the user and ensuring they have an uninterrupted running experience. The thing that the Trail Racer 6.6 Treadmill lacks is a strong computer. If you’re looking for a solid treadmill and you’re not concerned with those bells and whistles, then this might be your treadmill.
