Confidence Fitness Magnetic Manual Treadmill Running Machine : quite happy with treadmill where are the oiling points give my

Delivery was quick and machine in good working order. That it says on the web site.

5* but there are a few things i wish i’d known before ordering to be prepared to use it. I am very happy with this treadmill but there are a few things potential buyers should know: no treadmill is maintenance free and will require regular adjustment of the belt, regular lubrication, and regular inspection of all parts to ensure safety. The second thing to know is the instructions that come with this model are best described as ‘basic’ – you get assembly instructions and nothing more, for example how to get that belt centred, and absolutely nothing about how to keep the walking belt lubricated. Third thing – the exploded parts list notes a bag of various bolts, washers, etc. I thought those were missing but were in actuality already installed. Fourth thing i wish i’d understood before ordering is that walking on a manual treadmill is nothing like walking around a track or through a town centre. Balance shifts so much, particularly during the first few sessions, and the belt stops very suddenly if the walker stops. The walker must hold onto the grab bars to keep the belt moving and must understand body balance is always going to be slightly forward owing to the need to hold at least one of the grab bars. I recently dislocated my shoulder and am temporarily one armed so i hold the left side with my good hand and am able to get a good work-out but i’ll be very glad when i can use both hands and grab bars. The fixed incline proved too high for me – on the easiest resistance settings i need to use just now at my fitness level, my feet were being dragged backwards and once or twice i literally slid off the back of the belt.

I am happy with my treadmill. I am happy with my treadmill. It is not noisy and comfortable. Delivery was early than announced. I recommend it to buy and run for your health. Here are the specifications for the Confidence Fitness Magnetic Manual Treadmill Running Machine:

  • Quiet and smooth magnetic resistnce with 8 adjustable levels to tailor your workout level, Fixed gentle incline
  • Multi-function computer including speed, distance, calories, odometer, time and scan functions, Easily transported and stored – simple locking pin mechanism with built in wheels for ease of movement
  • Suitable for users up to 100kg, 12 month warranty, Runway size : 38cm x 102cm
  • Product footprint : 48.5cm x 120cm, Size when folded : 122cm (h) x 20cm (d)
  • Box dimensions : 132cm x 62cm x 23.5cm, Weight : 21.25kg

Arrived next day, you can walk or run on it. It’s very sturdy – you’d have to spend £350 to get a motorized one built so well.

I wanted a machine to walk on when the weather was too bad outside. My only problem is i needed to level it off (uphill too strenuous for this 70+ year old). Also find the track length a little short for my stride – i occasionally drop off the back. Unlike others i have had no problem with tracking, and do not foresee great problems when i need to – as long as it is done carefully.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A wonderful walking treadmill.
  • Fine for what I wanted
  • One year on would recommend.

If like me you want to try treadmills before spending a fortune this is the boy,sturdy and has helped me get rid of my belly.

  1. One year on would recommend. . Still using this regularly after one full year. No plugging in, easily fits under an armchair (with rail up) or behind a chair folded up in the living room so easy to get to and hop on for a quick walk during work breaks. Had a bit of damage when delivered but part was replaced promptly, no quibble. Very happy with it and would definitely recommend.

  2. A wonderful walking treadmill. . A fabulous piece of equipment, it was very easy to put together , in fact i think it took me longer to unpack it. My only mistake was not to check what number it was set on when i started walking. I did 10 minutes and thought i was very unfit until i realised it was on the highest resistance, as soon as i adjusted the setting it was fine. I think i should add that i am 75 years of age and have had arthritis of the spine since i was 18. So if i can set this up anyone can. I look forward to many miles walking, while looking at the garden and countryside.

    Confidence fitness magnetic treadmill. Item is fine and does as it says. Found difficulty balancing with the slope on the treadmill so had to hold onto the bars which is not ideal. Also have to adjust tread belt after every use.

    1. So simple to use my 6 & 5 year old came downstairs at the crack of dawn, set it up and away they went. Arrived promptly, almost fully assembled, instructions basic but not an issue as really wasn’t a lot to do, after the kids had mucked about on it a bit the belt had moved slightly but not so much that it rubbed, still usable but i adjusted back anyway, very easy to do. Walked on it for an hour at setting 8 i found the lower settings too fast for walking, you could jog but not really for running (although the kids have managed that.No hands) it provided a good workout, though i did have to turn the tele right up so i could hear it.
