Being as walking is considered as one of the most recommended exercises, there are many treadmills in the market that can help meet the walking needs of fitness individuals as well as offer additional benefits that cannot be obtained when doing walking exercises outside. What’s more, you don’t need to buy any of those expensive motorized treadmills to obtain the full benefits that walking can offer your body; in fact, even an inexpensive manual treadmill can do. So, if you’re looking for a manual fitness machine that would help you keep fit, then the Stamina InMotion II Manual Treadmill may be what you are looking for.
This simple manual exercise machine is fitted with a heavy-duty steel frame that is durable enough to accommodate user weights of up to 250 pounds. It is also fitted with skid-resistant rubber floor protectors that help enhance the stability of the system, even during strenuous sessions. When you are done with your workouts, it can easily be folded and stored in a closet or under a bed (which is definitely a plus for those who live in small rooms or houses). However, when in use, it measures 46.5” long, 26” wide, 43.5” high and is lightweight at only 56 pounds. Since it doesn’t have to be connected to a power source, you can easily place it anywhere and use it anytime.
The deck offers a 42” long treadmill belt with a non-slip surface for walking or running, and since you don’t have to rely on a motor to power this system, you can easily adjust the belt speeds according to your preference. The belt is moved along with the help of dual-weighted flywheels that help keep the system quiet while ensuring that it runs smoothly. The deck can be inclined into 2 positions—8 and 10 degrees—thus enabling you to have a more vigorous exercise routine.
This exceptional manual treadmill features a user-friendly, multi-function console that can easily keep track of your progress as you go about with your exercise session. It displays your distance, the workout time duration, your speed, as well as the calories burned.
Despite the obvious benefits that this neat system can offer you, there is actually just two minor downsides that I have seen with this treadmill. In order to use the console’s features, you have to install 2 double A batteries and you might end up changing them every few months, depending on the number of times you use the system. You also have to exert an effort to apply pressure on the belt to get it to move.
In summary, this system features enough specifications that enable you to keep fit, even without the help of an expensive motorized equipment. Simple to use and inexpensive, it is highly recommended for those who want to have an exercise machine that would help them meet their fitness demands without breaking the bank.
