Walking is still considered one of the most beneficial cardiovascular exercises for people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels. As a fundamental form of aerobic training, walking has numerous physical benefits for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, while also increasing muscle tone and burning fat calories. Treadmills provide a convenient way to regularly exercise in all weather conditions in the comfort and safety of your own home.
From beginners just starting an exercise regimen to advanced athletes looking to maintain their fitness level, anyone interested in getting and staying in shape can benefit greatly from regular use of a treadmill. Treadmills allow you to determine the pace, distance, and complexity of the workout based on your needs, all while watching television, talking on the telephone, or reading a magazine. Much easier on sensitive joints like the knees and hips, treadmill walking and running surfaces are typically long, padded platforms that allow ample room for a long stride and comfortable, low-impact walk or jog without the harsh contact of a concrete surface.
Many treadmills offer unique features like a fold-up design for easy storage, an electronic display monitor showing speed, distance, workout time, incline level, and burned calories, and EKG grip pulses to monitor the heart rate while exercising. Regardless of the features you may choose, treadmills offer an array of aerobic exercise opportunities that will provide long-lasting cardiovascular benefits without requiring a commute to the gym or a jog in the rain.

- Merit Fitness Treadmill
Treadmill works as promised. Easy to asemble. Manufacturer very prompt at getting back to you to answer questions. Although the outside packaging looked fine, when we opened it, the motor housing was cracked. When we called, we were told that we could keep the unit and get a $60 refund, or send it back for replacement or refund. We made sure that it worked and decided to take the $60 refund. Works great, not noisy....more info
- Good for the price
I recommend this treadmill for its price and performance. It is very sturdy, and because it is not too big, you can easily maneuver it. However, the speed increments is 0.5 miles/hour, and sometimes that step is too big.
Overall, it was a good product for its value....more info
- Good equipment for the price
This is a good piece of equipment for the price. I have had it for about 3 or 4 days but I find that it is easy to use, easy to fold up and easy to move out of the way even on carpet. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions were clear and easy to understand. Would recomend for anyone who wants to put together a home gym without spending an arm and leg....more info
- Good machine at a great price
This machine is exactly what I was looking for. It is low cost, yet high quality. Having a treadmill comes in very handy this time of the year when it is just too cold to go outside. I walk/jog for about 30 minutes per day on my 715T and have not had any problems. The features aren't overwhelming, and it has the prefect amount of programs for me....more info
- Low cost, but high quality
This is the best treadmill you can buy for the cost. I wasn't sure what to expect from a lower cost treadmill but this thing has exceeded my expectations. It is sturdy and well built, the motor is relatively quiet and has a very comfortable surface. You have to adjust the incline manually and there is only 4 training programs but for the price of this thing the extra features aren't missed. If you are looking for a great treadmill for a good price without all the bells and whistles , this is the one you are looking for.!!!!!!!!!!!!!...more info
- Worked okay for about 3 months, then platform broke....
This treadmill is really flimsy. Not solid at all. After several months the platform broke and there is a loud creaking when stepping on it. The motor is also clicking. It's still working and in use but next time I will spend more money up front to get a better quality machine.
By the way, I am only 150lbs. Do not recommend......more info
