These days most treadmill manufacturers are looking for that mean set of features that will give their model an edge. Sometimes this results in a mass of different treadmills which are essentially all the same. Efitment T012 is not one such treadmill. Because of that, we think it is among the most interesting treadmills you can get for $500 or less. Join us as we take a better look at this model.
For the most part, Efitment T012 was designed around the concept of mobility and compactness. They were looking for ways to offer a plethora of features in a package that doesn’t take too much space in your home, and can be stored away easily. Efitment has managed to accomplish this by using the good old folding system. We have a rock solid frame made of thick tubing, that features a subframe at the bottom. If you look at that piece of framing, you will notice that there are two wheels at the front and two wheels in the back of the belt. This is meant to allow you to push the treadmill around when it is in its folded state. Size of the belt that comes with T012 is 47″ by 15.6″. That makes it fairly compact compared to the rest of the treadmills in this price range. Again, smaller belt size was necessary in order to achieve that compact form factor.
When it comes to features, Efitment T012 doesn’t fall behind its competition. As a matter of fact, it offers some pretty interesting solutions which we don’t get to see that often. The motor that drives the belt delivers some 2,2 hp, making it among the most powerful in its class. That equates to max speeds of 9 mph. The next impressive detail is the motorized incline control. You can choose between 15 different inclines. Other brands usually max out at 10 incline options at best. As for the control module features, there’s quite a few. Aside from the manual speed and incline selection there are numerous programs you can access using the on board controls. Efitment T012 comes with pulse rate monitoring. Sensors are mounted on the parallel handles, which may not be optimal but works. Moving on, we have a set of integrated speakers that are paired with onboard Bluetooth. In other words, you can connect your smart device and enjoy your favorite tunes while working out.
When everything is said and done, it isn’t that hard to see what makes Efitment T012 such a great value. We definitely appreciate the fact that Efitment offers 15 different incline options, making it very easy to get that challenging workout. On top of that, there are other, smaller features that add to the overall experience. This treadmill comes in as a perfect choice for anyone who wants those features, but also needs something that’s compact enough to be used in environments with limited space. Even if you’re just looking for a good bang for the buck option, T012 works.
