Avari Magnetic Treadmill Review
There’s no doubt that the Avari Magnetic Treadmill is designed for the budget-conscious consumer who is simply looking for a way to stay in shape in the comfort of their own home. The computer monitor is basic but effective, there are 8 levels of resistance to choose from, and the treadmill is manually powered, which of course keeps its price down.

The Avari is different to the majority of treadmills on the market, in the way that no motor is present. Instead, it is manually-powered. This simply means that your level of physical exertion determines the kind of workout you are getting. For example, walking at a normal pace is similar to a low setting on a motor-driven treadmill, and jogging is similar to a medium setting.
Apart from the benefit of significantly keeping the price of the Avari down when compared to motor-driven treadmills, the low noise heard when in operation is another benefit, as is the fact that no electrical outlet is needed, meaning that the Avari can be used anywhere.
Resistance & Incline
There are 8 levels of resistance to choose from, which can be adjusted via the easy-to-turn tension knob, and should provide more than enough of a challenge for most people, particularly if you’re jogging or running. The Avari Magnetic Treadmill incline level is set at 8 degrees, although we don’t like the fact that it can’t be changed.
As mentioned, the computer monitor is basic but effective. You are able to see the workout time, distance, calories burned and speed. As you you might expect from a manually-powered, no-frills treadmill there is no way to measure your pulse.
The Avari is able to offer users quite a comfortable workout experience . The handlebar is padded, the walking/jogging surface is textured and manufactured from non-slip material, and the dual weighted flywheels ensure that the treadmill won’t wobble but is kept firmly in place as your exercise.
However, perhaps best of all is that you are not required to hold onto the handlebar as you exercise, which is a rarity for manual treadmills. The handlebar is only there if you need it.
While the Avari Magnetic Treadmill is slightly heavier than other manually-powered treadmills, as little as 5 to 10 pounds or so, wheels can be found on the bottom of the machine for easy portability and storage purposes. The treadmill can also be folded, which is always a plus.
The Avari Treadmill is backed by a 3-year frame and 90-day parts warranty.

Avari Magnetic Treadmill User Reviews
Even though the Avari is a budget treadmill, it has been received very favorably by consumers, with over 80% of users awarding it with 4 out of 5 stars.
Users say that the treadmill is easy to assemble, they like that they can jog/run on the treadbelt without having to hold on the support bar, as well as its ease of use, which is not always the case with manual treadmills. The Avari’s portability is also well-liked.
However, a few users do not like the fact that they are unable to adjust the incline and have found a fault with the belt.

As mentioned, the inability to change the incline is somewhat annoying. However, there are two ways of looking at this: 1. The majority of manual treadmills don’t even come with any sort of incline. 2. You can improvise by placing a piece of wood under the back of the treadmill.
