The York Active 110 Treadmill is aimed at beginners to give them a great cardio workout in the comfort of their own home. But Does it do it? In this review we will look at the break down of the treadmill, what it does and doesn’t do then my conclusion at the end.
What Speed does the York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill Go?
This treadmill has a motor of 1HP which can reach speeds from 1km/h up to 13km/h. 13Km/h is 8 miles per an hour which is a fast pace jogging or run in some people’s case. You can change the speed by either using the centre console or the +/- on the handle bars.
Does it have a built in heart rate Monitor?
You get a built in heart rate monitor by using the sensors on the handles bars. This will give you an intermittent reading as you will have to hold them continually to get a read out. This might put you off your stride so if you want to monitor your heart rate throughout your workout then I would suggest that you buy a heart rate monitor design for that purpose. If you just want to check you heart rate now and again then the built in one will be fine.
The York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill has a vertical folding design with an assisted hydraulic lift and drop. This makes it easy for one person to lift it up out of the way so that what ever room you have your treadmill in it doesn’t take up all the floor space.
What is the size of the running Deck?
The size of the running deck is 41cm wide by 120cm long. This give you lots of room to jog in. But the problem with the York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill is that the deck requires lots of maintenance as it has been reported by its users. They have had to find out from YouTube video that you need to lubricating the deck often and that you need to ensure the belt stays center by tightening or loosening the bolts.
Is there a Warranty?
This treadmill comes with a home use warranty only which means that it is not for commercial gyms. With the home use warranty you are covered for 12 months parts and labour.
Who it is for?
The treadmill places itself in the beginners area and for those who want to lose weight as it has a Body Fat analyser. For those of you who are a more advance runner you need to be look at a treadmill with a stronger motor.
What is the Dimensions?
The dimensions when assembled are 153cm long by 74cm wide by 125cm high. When the treadmill is in its fold position is 104cm long by 74cm wide by 138cm high.
The York Fitness Active 110 Treadmill comes with 13 workout programs 12 of them are pre-set and 1 is a manual setting. This is so that you have more choice when it comes to your workouts.

This is a good starter machine for any one who is looking to get into running or just get into shape. You will be able to do this in the comfort of your own home at your own pace. The high maintenance of the belt might put some people off as you might not like the idea of adjusting the belt. However you have to do that to every treadmill at some point in their life.
