According to a recent survey conducted on Nautilus Inc.’s behalf by YouGov*, the most important attribute of a treadmill is affordability, and the major reasons that stop consumers from purchasing a treadmill are cost and size.

The Bowflex® BXT8J treadmill offers high-performance cardio combined with the ability to pair the user’s device to the JRNY® adaptive fitness app. The treadmill’s built-in media shelf makes it easy to explore new and personalized JRNY® workout experiences by using a tablet or phone (available on iOS and Android devices). The JRNY® adaptive fitness membership provides access to Explore the World routes, JRNY radio, and hundreds of trainer-led workouts, which are tracked and saved in the JRNY(R) member’s journal.
