( Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill )
The Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill, while not packed with technological features, is a no-frills, well-built treadmill that is likely to appeal to those on a budget and/or those who don’t have much space to dedicate to fitness equipment.Due to the weak motor – 1.5-horsepower – running at full speed isn’t possible, and the small treadbelt will put taller individuals off.
The motor clocks in at only 1.5-horsepower, which is expected given the low price of the Confidence. Therefore, while walkers and joggers will be able to get a good workout in, those who are looking for a treadmill to run on may want to look elsewhere, despite the treadmill being able to reach speeds of up to 7.5 MPH. However, thankfully, the motor isn’t very loud, making the Confidence a good choice for apartment dwellers.
The treadbelt measures just 38.5” x 14”; therefore, while this might suffice for people who are just a little over 6′ and under, very tall individuals are likely to feel confined as they work out, especially if they have long legs – i.e. a long stride. Being a budget treadmill, there is no cushioning system; however, the impact felt on the joints isn’t that great, particularly when you consider that you won’t be running on this treadmill.
The Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill just comes with a total of 3 programs, so you aren’t exactly spoiled for choice in this respect. However, the programs do a good job of challenging you and mixing up your workout, as the speed increases with each one.
As you might expect from a budget treadmill, the LED display is rather basic in its functionality. There is no graphical representation of your workout. However, the display provides you with feedback on distance, time, speed and calories burned.
The Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill is ideal for those who are low on space. First of all, it is very light for a treadmill, weighing just 53 pounds. It also features a folding design for easy storage. There are even transport wheels on the bottom of the machine.
Despite its low price, the Confidence Power Plus is still backed by a better than expected warranty. The motor is protected by a 5-year warranty and the frame by a 1-year warranty.

This is a minor complaint but we thought that it was worth mentioning. The Confidence automatically switches off after 30 minutes of activity.
Anything Else You Should Know?
The Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill has a maximum user weight capacity of 250 pounds. The only thing left to say is that, if you want a treadmill with a range of technological features, then the Confidence certainly isn’t for you. In fact, you will have to pay at least $600+ for a treadmill with these features. However, if you are on a budget and simply want a compact, lightweight treadmill to help you lose weight, then it’s certainly something to consider, especially at this price.
