There are actually 2 types of treadmills and each of them comes with their own advantages and disadvantages. There is what we call the motorized treadmills, and as derived from their name, they are powered by electricity and a motor. Then, there is what we call manual treadmills that rely on your pedal power to propel the belt’s movement. Between the two of them, the latter would be most recommended to those who have a limited budget range, yet still want to have an exercise machine that would help them keep fit. So, for those on a lookout for a manual treadmill, the Sunny Manual Treadmill might be what you are looking for.
This slim treadmill system is designed using sturdy steel frames that can be folded to maximize space, which is actually a welcome relief for fitness enthusiasts who live in crowded or small areas. When fully assembled, it measures 49.2” long, 25.2” wide and 46.9” high. It is also fitted with built-in wheels at the base for easy movement and relocation. Despite its lightweight features, it is stable and strong enough to support weights of up to 250 pounds.
As expected of manual systems, there are no complicated specifications or contraptions associated with this treadmill. All the belt needs to move is your walking or jogging exertion. The deck features an exercise space of 42” x 13”, which is suitable for those who enjoy walking for their fitness. The deck is also fitted with anti-slippery stickers on both side rails for user safety.
A small battery-operated console comes with this exceptional manual treadmill. It shows you a direct feedback regarding your exercise routine, and this includes the time duration of your exercise, current speed, exercise distance, total distance and total burned calories.
Being as it is equipped with a rather narrow treadmill belt, it is most likely that you can only do walking or jogging exercises. It is also not long enough for those who are tall or who have longer strides. The console also has to be fitted with two double A batteries that would have to be changed after a few months.
In conclusion, manual treadmills have few features which come with their inexpensive price range. However, if you are looking for a system that can meet your needs without you spending a lot of money, then this is the system for you.
