Bodyguard T-30 Treadmill (Floor Model)


Bodyguard Dissipation System (BDS) is designed to achieve 3 key goals: Minimize Impact Energy, Maximize Foot Stability and Simulate an Athletic Track Feel. To achieve this, Bodyguard treadmills rely on more than just high quality shock absorbers; rather, BDS is engineered as a complementary system to the entire treadmill platform.

Minimizing impact energy without sacrificing foot stability is a challenge for many treadmill manufacturers.  One solution to reduce impact energy is to create a platform that flexes and absorbs the user’s down force. However, the more a platform flexes, the less stable the surface is for the user, increasing the risk of lateral injuries related to foot instability. Furthermore, high amounts of deck flex often result in a scenario treadmill users call “kickback”. “Kickback” occurs when a heavily flexed deck returns sharply to its flat state when the weight of the user is lifted. This results in an uncomfortable bouncy feel to the running surface and is very common in poor quality decks or decks that are too thin in relation to their length (e.g. a ¾ inch thick deck that is 54" long will have less flex than a ¾ inch thick deck that is 60” long resulting in less ‘kickback’).

The importance of maximizing foot stability and providing a non-shifting running surface for a user can not be underestimated therefore Bodyguard’s shock absorption system focuses on minimizing impact energy without relying on deck or frame flex. BDS achieves this by custom shaping a unique “visco-elastic polymer” that dissipates the impact energy much more efficiently than standard rubber elastomers.The unique shape increases the surface area of shock absorber in contact with the deck resulting in superior energy transfer and less deck flex. Furthermore, “visco-elastic polymers” do not succumb to heat enforced break down and become crusty like standard rubber elastomers do. As a result BDS offers sustained high quality impact protection for the life of the treadmill unlike competitive products that gradually degrade to the point of requiring replacement.

Further to maximizing foot stability Bodyguard has completely reengineered its premium treadmill frames to provide the most stable “pound-for-pound” platform available. By utilizing an exclusive X-Frame design Bodyguard is able to provide stronger, more stable platforms with less frame torsion than standard frames of the same weight. Also, Bodyguard’s custom foot stabilizers adjust and pivot meaning X-Frames are easily leveled on uneven surfaces.  And when the treadmill is used on an incline, the pivoting action of the stabilizer results in the entire surface area of the feet remaining flat against the floor, again providing improved stability and a superior comfort and feel for the user.

The complete redesign and integration of BDS with our X-Frames successfully achieved ourgoals of minimizing impact energy and maximizing foot stability. However, it was imperative that Bodyguard treadmills maintained the wonderful natural running track feel they are synonymous for. Because all the components of the BDS system (frame, shock absorbers, decks, belts) are fully customizable, engineers were free to modify the specifications of the key components to gain the desired feel a user would experience when they plant their foot. In order to be sure we were targeting the most natural track feel we investigated the surfaces used by the world’s leading athletic track manufacturers. Companies such as Mondo, whose surfaces can be found on both the Beijing and London Olympic Athletic Tracks were tested for a range of specifications such as their shore hardness and shock absorption as well as their slip stability. From these tests we were able to establish the target values we wished to simulate for our treadmill users. The result of this process is the most natural track feel Bodyguard has ever produced, one that is fully customized to each treadmill frame. Whether you prefer the space saving benefits of our standard sized frames or the robust performance of our premium frames, Bodyguard customers can have confidence that each and every model is engineered with a complimentary BDS system designed to simulate that wonderful natural track feel.


Advanced Friction Detection System (AFDS), is a system watchdog that uses Bodyguard’s built-in custom amperage reader to monitor the treadmill’s performance and warn users when the unit is operating at an “elevated” level. An AFDS reading above 12 amps generally indicates excessive deck and belt wear and the need for maintenance. Far more precise than using mileage or hours of usage as a guideline for scheduled maintenance, AFDS gives you real-time updates via the iTek key and allows users to forget about monitoring usage levels. If an AFDS warning appears, it indicates that the drive system has been drawing high amperage, which is a primary cause of parts wear. If that occurs, simply follow the maintenance instructions, which usually involve simply cleaning the belt and deck. AFDS is so intuitive that if a user chooses to ignore the maintenance warning and continues to operate the treadmill to the point where the drive system is at risk then it will shut down until the problem is resolved. The current AFDS reading can be accessed at any time via the iTek key, meaning a user can easily see how the system is running at any time.

Service Tip: Bodyguard’s Customer Service Department recommends that users wipe down the deck and the underside of the belt with a dry anti-static cloth and apply Bodyguard lubricant to the belt and deck if the AFDS is above 10amps.


All Bodyguard Fitness’ deck surfaces are finished with a multi-layer phenolic coating to reduce belt friction and wear. After many years of heavy-duty use these deck coatings can wear through, so to provide better long-term value to customers and avoid expensive after sales parts purchases, Bodyguard layers both sides of the deck. Therefore, when the phenolic coating is worn down on one side, simply flip the deck over and use the other side. Furthermore, users who only wear a small section at one end of a deck can get even more use out of each side by rotating it thanks to Bodyguards unique 4-Way Deck system. 

Long lasting surfaces combined with our exclusive 4-way flip and rotate system means Bodyguard decks can last thousands of more miles and are just another reason how Bodyguard treadmills keep saving you money many years after the purchase date


Electronic Stride Control (ESC) is an electronic braking system built-into Bodyguard’s Palladium Drive Lower Control Boards that prevents the running belt from over speeding and offers “traction” during the “push off” stage of the stride when exercising on an incline.

Without some sort of braking system, a treadmill belt will usually over speed when  a user operates the treadmill on a high incline. The weight of the user combined  with gravity creates a heavy downward force that strikes the angled belt each time the foot plants. As a result, the treadmill belts tend to speed up for an instant and travel faster than their desired value. Furthermore, at the end of the stride when the user attempts to “push off” with the rear foot, to drive their weight up and forward into the incline, if there is nothing providing traction then the belt can simply be pushed back and over sped by the user. This action will lengthen the stride as the rear foot stays in contact with the belt longer than desired and causes the users running action to be modified increasing the risk of over stretching and injury.

Without the inclusion of some type of braking system, a belt can only slow once it loses momentum, something that quality treadmills that incorporate high inertia motor flywheels and low-friction belts struggle to do before the next foot strikes. 

The best way to experience the benefits of ESC is to try it for yourself. ESC comes standard on every Bodyguard Fitness treadmill, and to make it easy for users to experience the difference ESC makes, we have created an ESC test that allows you to turn the ESC feature on and off while using the treadmill at any speed or incline. This allows you to experience first hand how ESC changes the feel for you and provides more traction during the push off stage when on an incline. If you wish to confirm if another treadmill has a similar braking system simply start the treadmill and while holding onto the handrails, place one foot on a foot rail and with the other foot push back on the belt and attempt to over speed it. If the belt just speeds up and does not slow back down to the correct speed until you stop pushing that means there is no built-in braking mechanism. However, if you feel the belt pull back against your force and slow down even when you keep trying to over speed it, then that indicates there is a built-in braking system. How quickly the system activates and slows down the belt identifies the quality of that braking system. 

If you are considering purchasing a treadmill and plan on incorporating incline during programs, then be sure to test all units while you are on an incline to see that they feel as comfortable at 15% as they do on the flat. If you find it much easier to maintain your correct running form on the Bodyguard Fitness unit then it is most likely the Electronic Stride Control system making all the difference.


Silicone Keys offer many advantages over standard membrane or plastic keys such as being more responsive, durable and reliable. As a result, Bodyguard Fitness uses Silicone Keys on the main keypad on all our equipment. These principle keys are the ones used most often, especially during exercise, and are prone to wearing out if an unsuitable material is used. With Silicone Keys a user gets a response even if they just catch the edge of the key, which is very common when in the middle of workout with the heart pounding. And because Silicone Keys do not crack over time, your console will continue performing like new long into the future.


Bodyguard Fitness’ custom-built Palladium Drive is a commercial-grade lower control board that is included on every Bodyguard treadmill. The lower control board is one of the most important components of a treadmill, responsible for regulating the power to the motor and maintaining smooth, consistent belt movement at any speed or incline. The lower control board is also one of the parts put under most stress so it is very important that this component is of high quality so to be durable and offer consistent long-term performance.

Unlike many competitors who offer different series of equipment where only their top range receives the premium electronic components, with Bodyguard thats is not the case. The exact same Palladium Drive that has a proven track record in our commercial client's facilities such as hotels, condominiums and schools is the same one you will find in all our residential models.

As well as offering durability benefits, Bodyguard Fitness’ custom-built Palladium Drives offer several performance benefits that regular lower boards do not. Firstly, Palladium Drives include a natural stride control system that prevents belt over speeding on any incline. This system called Electronic Stride Control is of the type usually only found on Club Series equipment. To learn more about Electronic Stride Control, see the ESC section.

Another performance benefit that Palladium Drives offer is the ability to provide much higher acceleration speeds than regular drives. Due to the Palladium Drives ability to provide more power, more efficiently than regular boards, users can simulate true high-acceleration sprint workouts just like are done on a running track. To learn more about this high performance feature visit the Turbo Training section.

Finally, the lower control boards are responsible for regulating the speed control system of a treadmill which means they take the information provided by the speed sensor and process the exact amount of power the motor requires to maintain a smooth consistent feel. Palladium Drives are tremendously fast and accurate at this process and as a result Bodyguard Fitness is able to incorporate an extremely accurate speed detection system. This advanced speed detection system is capable of taking speed readings from the optical sensor hundreds of times per second. Where many competitors use simple speed-reading systems such as those where a single magnet is attached to the front roller, or incorporate smaller discs with less teeth that provide less readings per second, Bodyguard can offer a far more advanced system due to the Palladium Drive’s ability to process the greater amount of data. The result is quicker, smoother belt speed adjustments as each foot strikes and lifts off resulting in a natural exercise feel for the user.


Bodyguard’s Digital Contact Heart Rate Sensors offer far more accurate Heart Rate readings than standard analog sensors. Also, our dual sensor plates provide improved contact readings, which is a big advantage for users who traditionally get intermediate contact heart rate readings due to “soft” pulses in the hands.

7 Preset Programs

  • JustGo 
  • Interval
  • Hill Climb
  • Cardiovascular
  • Manual
  • Random
  • Heart Rate Control


The JustGo Program allows users to quickly start a workout by pressing only one key from the HOME SCREEN making it ideal for users who simply want to get on and go and make their own speed and incline changes as the workout progresses. The JustGo Program does not allow the user to input any parameters or workout goals so the program will just keep going until the user presses the STOP key or until the maximum time of 6 hours is up.


The Manual (Time Goal) Program allows the user to select a predetermined amount of time they wish to workout for from 5 minutes to 99 minutes. The JustGo and Manual programs are very similar in that the user controls both the speed and incline at all times. The difference is that in the Manual Program, users must select their exercise duration and the display will show the workout time remaining throughout the exercise.


Interval Training has many benefits such as increasing the metabolism, which results in more calories being burned all day long, as well as increasing average exercise speed, making it a great way to increase average pace and improve race times. The Interval Program allows users to alternate their workout intensity between high-intensity “work” periods and preset low-intensity “rest” periods. The Interval Program has predetermined speed and incline percentages depending on the selected level of intensity. Users can change the level of intensity of the profile at any time by modifying the speed or incline and those changes will stay in effect for the remainder of the workout.


The Random Program is a time-based program that provides exercise variety. Each time this program is selected, a unique exercise experience is provided from a bank of over 4 billion pre-programmed workouts. The user must choose a RANDOM MODE they prefer during the program setup stage. Each mode effects how the computer creates the Random program.

SP = Speed is randomly set, incline stays constant

ICL = Incline is randomly set, speed stays constant

ISP = Both Speed and Incline are randomly set


The Hill Climb Program develops leg strength and endurance by allowing users to choose from a range of hill simulations at varying intensities. The program is time based and changes are made automatically to the incline profile whereas the speed profile stays constant. Users may change the speed or incline during the exercise if they find it too easy or too difficult. There are generally 4 or 5 peaks and valleys in each workout.


The Heart Rate Control Program allows a user to workout at the exact intensity level they desire by setting a predetermined heart rate level. This reduces the risk of overtraining, which can cause injuries, exhaustion or even burnout and under training, which can be ineffective and have the user seeing little to no results.

Once a Target Heart Rate value is selected the Heart Rate Mode must be established. The Heart Rate Mode is the way the treadmill will make adjustments during a workout in order to achieve the Target Heart Rate.  There are 3 choices:

SP = Speed changes only, incline stays constant. Ideal for runners who do not want incline changes

ICL = Incline changes only, speed stays constant. Ideal for walkers who do not want to jog or run.

ISP = Both Speed and Incline can change. Ideal for users who want both speed and incline changes


The Cardiovascular Program is a versatile program that combines a range of speed and inclines in order to limit muscle memory and promote an elevated heart rate. The Cardiovascular Program is similar to the Random Program when both Speed and Incline Modes are incorporated except each level has pre-determined values that do not change whereas in the Random program the values in each level can change every time it is done offering even more flexibility.

Console Readouts

Bodyguard T-30 Treadmill

The T-30 console features 5 Red LED Data Windows that show the parameters of the exercise under way as well as a clear program list and a convenient reading rack/device holder. The main keypad has eight keys made from durable silicone that will not crack over time. The T-30 console also includes a built-in wireless heart rate receiver that displays the pulse being transmitted from compatible 5kHz heart rate chest straps in range.
