Great , Love it :
Easy to set up on your own and start working out as soon as possible.
I LOVE this treadmill
I LOVE this treadmill, it’s pretty standard, without a lot of bells and
whistles. Does the job really well and the EASIEST treadmill you will ever assemble! If it takes you more than 1/2 hour, not mechanically inclined, is an understatement. It’s heavy with a transport weight of about 120lbs, but you’re not going to get a better treadmill for less!
Don’t waste time buy this product
This treadmill fit within my budget and it is perfect for a few times a week jog. I am just now starting to use it for the price I am getting just what I paid for and I am very happy with this product it’s not too complicated is just right for me, it saves me a lot of space and I know so happy about it thank you.
