With the video link available for installation, the machine was ready within half an hour. We would say that almost 95% of the machine comes assembled and the rest does not require an expert.
- Great Built Quality: The treadmill is undoubtedly a great quality. The moment you step onto it, you can feel its strength. It does not move as you speed up or increase the incline degrees. The superb frame quality makes sure of no wear and tear.
- Sufficient walking and jogging space: We would love to say that we were certainly impressed by the running space. It’s is both lengthy and wide, and we have never seen such a wide machine before. Whether you are a jogger or a runner, this treadmill definitely ensures comfort and make sure of your safety.
- Runs Smooth: Most of the machines tend to wobble as the speed goes higher; fortunately, it’s not the same with this machine. Our pro runners tested on this machine, and this high-end equipment never showed up any issues and kept performing without showing up any issues.
- Does not stop abruptly: Once you feel that you are done exercising and you want to stop, you can always press the stop button. And the most amazing thing about this treadmill is that the treadmill stops gradually. It does not stop all of a sudden and which becomes great for the users.
- Easy folding system: Being a heavy machine, its folding does not take much of energy. The only reason is due to the presence of a hydraulic folding system which eases the folding. Hence you do not need any extra help due to its easy folding.
What we don’t like
- Speakers are not great quality: Well even when it’s not the vital one but still it would have been great if the speaker quality as similarly great. It does not sound well.

Whether you are a runner or a walker or a jogger, the treadmill has this amazing durability to ensure the intense workout session both with speed and incline degrees.
