Here’s a treadmill ,the Searchbuystore 500W, in the budget range that is causing a few heads to stir. This brand-new collapsible treadmill is ideal if you want to get fit at home or if you have little time to go the health club, go running, or are cannot get outdoors to do some running due to bad weather or long work shifts. With this treadmill, you have the convenience of being able to have a cardio session at home whenever you want. Plus it’s a lot cheaper than most 6-12 month gym subscriptions. Look after it and it will pay for itself 10 times over.
And… it’s orange!
The motor is quite light in this treadmill and it tops out at a not too impressive 500W. But a treadmill only has to power one user, that’s you. It doesn’t need a massive horsepower engine to power the belt as it’s only rotating and only carrying your weight. Your weigh will also be absorbed by the shock absorption system and as there aren’t any gradient options in this cheap machine the motor is not under loads of strain. It can also carry users of up to 250 pounds in weight.
Other treadmills priced similarly are the legendary Weslo G 5.9 Cadence treadmill and the r 5.2 Cadence model. These treadmills have thousands of positive user reviews. They are priced slightly higher but offer a good basis to compare against.
So it does the basics, walking, brisk walking and light jogging. The reviews so far have been very good. The treadmill also folds manually, which makes storage a lot easier after use. You could use this in a bedroom or an apartment if you don’t have a lot of room to spare. Your basic stats are presented in a multi function LED display. You can track your speed, distance, time and calories used up. So yes it is a basic no frills model. But when you want to get fit, and don’t need all the gizmos (or distractions) that more expensive treadmills have then this is a pleasing starter model to buy.
