Reebok Jet 100S Cross Trainer Review


The Jet 100 treadmill scores really highly in our current testimonial. Today we take a closer consider another of the Jet range, this time the Jet 100 cross instructor to see just how it contrasts to others in its course such as the ZR8 and also ZR10.

Delivery and also setup

The package showed up in a suitable time and also had the ability to move the box right into my spare space with little initiative for two of us. I would still suggest having this thing supplied as it evaluates regarding 60kg’s in its box.

Setting up for the Jet 100 took a little longer than some other designs that have some parts pre-assembled. Having stated that it just required a percentage of additional time to screw on the base legs as well as repair together the primary comments console. I would certainly image it would take the average person around 1– 2 hours. A few of the feedback is that it is taking much longer if you get stuck at the more fiddly parts.

Highlight of the Jet 100s Cross Trainer

As soon as built you can promptly tell that this is a top quality tool, it has a thick neck starting from the base till the comments console. Foot rests feel good and also tough as well as the handles are of a premium quality foam unlike some of the even more budget cross instructors. A good start.

After connecting in the Jet 100 and activating the power I was greeted with an outstanding LCD display featuring a blue history with white numbers and also a green program indicator. More on this a little later.

Starting with the mechanics of the Jet 100, it has really wide security legs. This provides it a strong sensation while in use unlike spending plan cross instructors that may have a slight side to side rocking activity. Being a heavy cross instructor at around 55kgs also helps with security and also general feeling while moving.

The Jet 100 Cross fitness instructors has a charitable 14 inch stride length and also although this is slightly less than the ZR8 with 15 inches you would locate it challenging to discriminate. The 9kg fly wheel gives the Jet 100 extremely fluid motion while in operation. The additional weight that you lack in more budget plan cross trainers indicates that your exercise will certainly give you that gym professional feeling.

Key features of the Jet 100s Cross Trainer

The hand holds on the Jet 100 are of an extremely high quality and although the static bars really feel a little much more plastic it’s the larger liquid motion grips you will certainly use frequently. Both I and also my partner had no issues with their quality during testing.

The Jet 100 comes with 32 levels of digital stress control, also for gym fanatics this is sufficient to make sure that you have the right degree of stress needed to work up a sweat. We additionally evaluated it while seeing TV and also can confirm that it is very peaceful when in operation. Including a few extra bars of volume to your regular volume levels implies that you can enjoy your much-loved programs without too much disruption from background noise.

One of the only disadvantages to the Jet 100 is that is deals with issues typical to various other Reebok devices which is a lack of a canteen owner. This may only be a minor complaint yet it is aggravating needing to quit your workout to take on board liquids.

Utilizing the LCD show

Relocating onto the comments system and also as stated over, Reebok have done a terrific work of making certain that it’s easy, clear as well as responsive. Without having to check out the guidebook I was quickly up and running with the fundamentals consisting of adjusting the tension control on the fly as well as choosing a pre-set exercise program.

The 19 user programmes used are explained by the simple to recognize diagrams located around the LCD display itself. Even programmes that you might be unfamiliar with are simplified to recognize with this setup and I was soon experiencing a 30 minute hillside climb.

An usual functions on a lot of health club devices is a pulse sensing unit, Reebok have done an excellent job of combination and also merely switching over to hold onto the fixed bars will certainly offer you an analysis. Benches likewise double up as a good means of working your reduced body harder throughout a workout.

Some users are claiming that throughout use they are listening to a squeaking sound, this is an usual issue with health club tools suppliers. There is a chance that your product has actually remained in storage for an amount of time that has dried out a few of the oil made use of during manufacture. A simple spray with WD40 or with lubricating substance supplied will certainly fix this 99/100 times.

Exactly How the Jet 100s matches up to the rest in course

I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the excellent quality from the Jet 100s right the way through from its design through to performance. Taking a look at a straight contrast to the ZR8, ZR10 there isn’t too much to divide them. The Jet 100s may be fractionally smaller sized and also have much less of a stride size, yet just a gym lover would also be able to tell the difference.


14 inch stride size

Good warranties (Lifetime guarantee on the frame + 2 Years guarantee on parts as well as work).

9kg fly wheel for fluid movement.

Quiet when in operation.


No beverages bottle holder.

Not offered in black (personal opinion).

No wheels on system base.

Final word.

For the cost that I spent for the Jet 100s cross trainer on special deal I was greater than delighted. It’s a close call between a Reebok ZR and the JET 100, I still favour the Reebok ZR range while my partner discovered the JET 100s to be the general much better experience.

One factor is clear however, of what I think is a little extra in cost between a low/mid- variety cross fitness instructor as well as the Jet 100, the distinction is just amazing.
