Sunny Health & Fitness has a good track record when it comes to affordable but reliable fitness gear. In the realm of manual treadmills, their SF-T1407M has proven to be one of the most capable models you can get at the moment. This is even more true if you are bound by a tight budget and need something that will get you a good cardio workout on a daily basis. Without further ado, lets take a closer look.
One of the main themes that we see in Sunny Health & Fitness fitness equipment is minimalist design which works out in the end. Same goes for Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M. We are looking at a very straightforward frame which is not all that unique to this particular brand. It is more or less similar to a frame design found on many motorized treadmills, only simplified to fit the needs and requirements of a manual model. What that translates to in practice is plenty of stability in a very small package. When folded, Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M becomes super compact. So much so that you can tuck it away just about anywhere. On top of that, the entire treadmill is super light which only adds to this benefit. One thing that might be an issue for some is fixed incline. We aren’t talking about an aggressive angle of incline but one that might still be a challenge for some beginners.
When it comes to features, there are only so many things that Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M has to offer. With that said, this treadmill is every bit as competitive as the rest of the higher end manual models. Just like them, it generates resistance by utilizing a set of flywheels. We are talking about smaller flywheels which is why this treadmill is rated exclusively for walking. With the fixed incline, that walk alone could be all the workout you need. The belt surface is pretty decent in terms of grip and comfort. These type of treadmills generally don’t come with any kind of shock absorption system. Even so, Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M tends to be quite comfortable during use. It doesn’t take much to realize that this model is aimed at absolute beginners who are just starting their fitness journey and are on a budget. As such it is great that Sunny Health & Fitness has included a small but effective LCD display.
Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M can be quite polarizing depending on what kind of treadmill you are looking for. If you are just getting started on your fitness journey, it could be exactly what you need. On the other hand, it is important to be realistic when dealing with models like this one. As long as you fully understand its limitations and capabilities, you shouldn’t end up disappointed. Additionally, Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M is optimized to meet the needs of users who are on a strict budget. As such, we’ve to say that it does an awesome job all things considered.
