Quick easy set up, you need 2AAA batteries
on March 27, 2018
This was a great purchase. I am used to using larger electric units in my home, but after the motor blew on the last one I was ready for something new.
I am aprox 5’2 and 150lbs, I found this treadmill to suit my needs. It takes some getting used to, but I turn the tensioner all the way up to walk and lower it to run. I have spent about an hour on it steady since it came this morning and so far so good.
You have to learn how to walk and run on the machine, the magnet will tighten suddenly if you don’t have the correct setting for the speed your going. It’s one of two negatives, but you can learn around that one. The one major negative is that the handles are wobbly. And it’s not at the screws I tightened all of those, it’s actually at the floor. The front rubber stoppers are higher then the back ones and, I think it’s supposed to keep it from falling forward, but it’s really difficult to hold the handles while walking and feeling them move towards toys and away. I fixed that with a small board under those feet.
Otherwise, great purchase. Love walking with high tension, really works the glutes. Like I said, you need to learn how to walk/run on this treadmill but once you do, it’s a great work out.
Folds up nice and small, light so I can move it to storage and bring it out to be in front of the tv :) so quiet! Loudest part is my own foot steps! Great value for price.
When I opened the box it was basically already put together, all parts were in the box, Instructions are clear and well written. 5- steps till walking!
