The Bodyguard T240 Treadmill Review – Top rated under $2000

Read Other Treadmills


For the Treadmill Sensei reviewing treadmills and ellipticals is a lot of fun and pretty easy. We get in tons of equipment here at the DOJO every day and get to play around with a lot of cool fitness toys. It’s a blast. What is a bit harder to when I do my “best of” awards and lists. You see, there is so much equipment out there — and a lot of good equipment — that it’s hard to rank things in comparison. Sometimes a good treadmill is left off the list not due to any fault of its own but just because it slipped my mind! Yeah, I know, it’s hard to believe the Treadmill Sensei doesn’t know all and see all…I’m getting old!

It’s also tough when you have a lot of really good units that all could very well be considered the best of the best. In this case I’m talking about the Bodyguard T240 treadmill. Bodyguard is a great, high quality and classy company which hails from Canada. They are more widely known with gym owners who use their commercial equipment, but Bodyguard also produces some of the best higher-end residential treadmills around.

I haven’t done a Bodyguard review in the past because, to tell the truth, we just don’t get that many of their units through the DOJO. When we do install a unit at a gym or residence we generally never hear about it again. The Bodyguard T240 goes in to a location and rarely has any problems. Bodyguard treadmills in general, and the T240 in specific, just last and last due to some great manufacturing and design.

The Bodyguard T240 comes with a very nice sized 2.75 horsepower motor which is large and cool running to guarantee a longer life. The 20×57 inch running area is great for both joggers and runners, and the 2.5″ rollers are hefty and will keep the stress off both your motor and treadmill belt.

Even better than the incredibly solid construction of the Bodyguard T240 is their warranty. At 10 years for parts and 3 years for labor, the T240 has easily one of the best warranties available for a treadmill. No one else puts this level of faith and support in their product.

The only reason the Bodyguard T240 wasn’t ranked as the best buy for under $2000 is a very small one — I really wish they made their short handles standard instead of just the front bar on the Bodyguard T240. If they gave the unit the standard handles then I’d make this unit a “you’d be stupid NOT to buy it” choice. Bodyguard really is that good.

For being a great treadmill and having an insane warranty, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Bodyguard T240 4.5 out of 5 Golden Buddahs.

About My Treadmill Reviews

TreadmillMy treadmill reviews are both subjective and objective. They are objective in the sense that I will provide you with information about each machine, such as motor, weight capacity and other features. But they are subjective in the sense that I am really giving my opinion of each treadmill. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, but my hope is that my elliptical and treadmill reviews can be helpful to you in making a decision on what to buy. Remember that each review is just what I think. You can always check out Treadmill Doctor, Treadmill Review Guru or these other treadmill reviews if you want another opinion.
