Product Description

Product Description

An economical yet reliable walking treadmill with smooth, quiet operation. Select your own space and alter it at any time any way you want! Very simple and user friendly design, yet equipped with heavy-duty steel frame and flywheel. Warranty is 90 days parts, 1 year frame. Maximum user weight is 250lbs. Not recommended or guaranteed for user over this limit.


Most treadmills are frightfully expensive, with bulky electric motors that power the treadmill while jacking up the price. No so the Easy-Up manual treadmill, which asks the user to power the belt instead. The treadmill is outfitted with a heavy-duty weighted flywheel and a sturdy 41.5-by-13.5-inch running belt that respond to your walking/jogging speed. The faster you run, the faster the belt spins, letting you reach whatever speed is comfortable. At the same time, the treadmill isn't completely low tech, as it offers a single-button electronics display that tracks your speed, distance, time, and calories (includes two AA batteries). And users with small homes or apartments will love the folding frame, which locks into the upright position and rolls away for easy storage in a closet or garage. The Easy-Up treadmill, which offers a maximum weight limit of 250 pounds, measures 46 by 50 by 21 inches (W x H x D) and carries a 90-day warranty on parts and a one-year warranty on the frame.


  • Heavy duty weighted flywheel offers a smooth, quiet operation
  • Comes almost completely assembled in the shipping carton; very limited assembly required
  • Folds and locks in the upright position for storage
  • Walking surface is 41.5" x 13.5"

  • 250-pound user weight limit

About Treadmills
Walking is still considered one of the most beneficial cardiovascular exercises for people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels. As a fundamental form of aerobic training, walking has numerous physical benefits for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, while also increasing muscle tone and burning fat calories. Treadmills provide a convenient way to regularly exercise in all weather conditions in the comfort and safety of your own home.

From beginners just starting an exercise regimen to advanced athletes looking to maintain their fitness level, anyone interested in getting and staying in shape can benefit greatly from regular use of a treadmill. Treadmills allow you to determine the pace, distance, and complexity of the workout based on your needs, all while watching television, talking on the telephone, or reading a magazine. Much easier on sensitive joints like the knees and hips, treadmill walking and running surfaces are typically long, padded platforms that allow ample room for a long stride and comfortable, low-impact walk or jog without the harsh contact of a concrete surface.

While many different types, styles, and price ranges of treadmills exist, many of them offer unique features like a fold-up design for easy storage, an electronic display monitor showing speed, distance, workout time, incline level, and burned calories, and EKG grip pulses to monitor the heart rate while exercising. Regardless of the simple to complex features you may choose, treadmills offer an array of aerobic exercise opportunities that will provide long-lasting beneficial cardiovascular results without a commute to the gym or a jog in the rain.

I believe that I got my money's worth with this product!!
And the belt also slips, it will go a little slower and then all of a sudden go really fast which makes your walking motion way too uneven.
This is a very good quality product and was extremely easy to set up.

I am a college student, and I am very used to the gym at my school with the electric treadmills . I wanted to try a manual version because having the treadmill at home for the summer would be more convenient then shuffling to and from my campus just to use the gym. I have never used a manual treadmill and was biased to the electric -- and thought wrongly about the both of them as well.

Basically, an electric treadmill goes a set speed and your job is to catch up. With a manual treadmill you are powering it, so you control the intensity of the workout.

I usually walk a steady 3-4 miles per hour. On a manual treadmill I could not get a great, heart pounding, sufficient workout setting the speed to 3-4 miles per hour and walking along to the set speed of the belt. Minutes on the manual treadmill, I could definitely feel it. It's great because it makes you feel like you are actually doing something, but definitely a tough job after a while.

I'd say give it a try. This is a very good quality product and was extremely easy to set up. I don't regret the purchase.

I got this treadmill to supplement a workout routine that already contained a lot of advanced cardio. I consider myself a high-intermediate/advanced exerciser in very good cardio-vascular shape, so I took this into account when I read other reviews for this treadmill. I wanted to address a few of the other points people have cited as cons:

1. Height of handlebars/width and length of track: I'm 5'4", so it's not really an issue for me, but unless your arms are really long, if you're much taller than 5'7", you will find yourself stooping. The nature of the work you have to do to move the belt on a manual treadmill has you leaning slightly forward anyway, but extra height will mean you have to bend and lean, and this might be too strenuous on your back. The track is wide and long enough to accommodate the stride of a correspondingly average/short person, so again taller people may find themselves limited.

At my height, I can comfortably stride across the middle 2/3 of the track (more lean forward, more work in hamstrings and glutes, so more oxygen demand), full track (long, fast strides, higher intensity bursts), or at the top 1/3 of the track (standing more straight, shorter stride, less work for a recovery period).

2. Accuracy of the mileage/calorie/time counter: Well, the time is accurate, but nothing else is. I walked on mine while wearing a pedometer calibrated to my stride and the mileage was low by at least 30%. I don't have a way to accurately calibrate calories burned, but my heart rate is consistently in the 70-80% max range after the first five minutes on the treadmill; there's no way I only burn 187 calories (what it measured) in 1 hour of walking at that level of work. I use the counter only for timing.

I did a lot of research before buying this treadmill, but, from what I read, I thought that it might meet my needs. I wanted something that I could use in front of my living room tv and then wheel away when not in use. I wasn't interested in running, just in walking fast enough to get my heart rate up to 85 to 90% of my maximum heart rate, and, because I'm short, I thought I wouldn't have problems having to lean over to reach the handlebars. I was concerned about having to put the machine together -- I'm not very handy -- and I worried about whether it would be too noisy or not pleasant to use.

I purchased this treadmill about a month ago and I have been using it almost every day since I got it. It is actually one of the best products that I have ever purchased on Amazon (and I make about 50 or more purchases each year). After using it for a week, I cancelled my gym membership, because I found that the workout I was getting on the Phoenix was at least as good (if not better) than the workout I was getting on the electric treadmills at the gym.

I use it in front of my huge 46 inch TV each night for about 45 to 60 minutes and it's made me feel much less guilty about the amount of TV I watch (especially this time of year, when my beloved Red Sox are on nightly). One thing that I especially love is that I can step off the treadmill briefly -- to advance my DVR past the commercials or whatever -- and hop back on without having to press any buttons and without losing the accumulated totals of minutes, calories burned, etc. shown on the display (the display "remembers" its totals for up to 4 minutes).

I was able to put together the Phoenix by myself (and I'm a very short -- 4 ft. 10 in -- 66 year-old woman who is not very handy around the house) in about an hour.

My first manual treadmill, and a decent product. Does take some time to get use to. Don't buy this if you expect to use this for running. Given that the treadmill needs to be at a small incline so your motion pushes the belt down and around, runnning is extremely difficult. Works well if you plan to use for fast walking in your home.

I love this treadmill! My husband was able to set it up in 15 minutes. We did have problems with the wiring for the digital counter, luckily my husband was able to solder the wires back together.

The incline is just right for a hard workout. Too bad it doesn't go level for a longer workout. I wouldn't recommend this for someone with bad knees. The lowest incline is a little steep and you can really feel it in your knees. I haven't made it to 30 minutes at one time. You really work up a sweat in 10 minutes.

Watch the screws, they loosen up sometimes and you can tell cause it makes a knocking sound. Just tighten it back up and you're good to go.

I would highly recommend this for keeping in shape. It's a really good workout. I keep mine's in front of the TV so I can exercise while watching my favorite show. It's easy to fold up and lightweight with wheels to move around.

UPDATE: FAST FORWARD 4 YEARS--2011 Still going strong, have now passed it on to my teenaged son who really abuses and uses it, and hasn't fallen apart yet!! What a great investment!!
