A very good alternative and one of the best manual treadmill you can find. This is a very good first equipment for beginners and will provide the freedom of having your own treadmill in the comfort of your home without breaking your wallet. The limitations is given but for basic work out its more that capable, and though in terms of features it might have a disadvantage against motorized treadmill it cannot beat it in one category, its affordability.
- Single button electronic monitor displays speed, distance, time, calories, and scan
- 2 AA batteries and water bottle included
- Spring loaded pull pin securely locks the unit upright for storage and also makes it super easy to release for operation
- Heavy-duty weighted flywheel ensures super quiet operation
- Folds for convenient storage (folded dimensions: 22L x 21W x 50H inches)
The size of the equipment takes up a lot less floor space than the huge motorized ones. The build quality of this treadmill is pretty good, even for a person with 6.0ft of height it is sturdy enough and doesn’t feel like it will break apart, and the walking space is not that a lot but if enough for a person with the said height.
It’s compact so you can move it around the house fairly quickly and when it’s time to store it you just fold it and move it. It wasn’t at all difficult to put together it would only take 30 mins even for an older person. The console is pretty basic, it has information of your speed, distance, time and calories.
The downside of a manual treadmill is here like the here is no real way to control the speed. Also, whether you consider it as positive or negative you need more effort running in than than the motorized treadmill and you have to constantly hold on to the handle. It nice to know that this runs smoothly, it isn’t very loud, at first it fairly quiet but after a while of using it it might get louder but a wd-40 can easily fix it.
The price enables you to own this at small price and allows you to get a good enough walk in without leaving your home. If your budget is in the low end but you want to enjoy the comfort of running in your house then this is the treadmill for you. Personally I feel it was $149 well spent.
