V-Fit Fit-Start Motorised Folding Treadmill, Long may you run

It goes very slowly if required and is very sturdy. He is unlikely to use the built in. Bought as a present for my husband. He has emphysema and cannot go out in cold weather and this allows him to ‘go for a little walk’ indoors.It goes very slowly if required and is very sturdy. He is unlikely to use the built in programmes but our grandchildren love them and use the machine every time they visit. It does fold but is very heavy so i have installed it in a bedroom and leave it unfolded. I would have given it 5 stars if it had not had a slightly bent front support which made assembly very difficult on one side because the bolts would not align correctly.

No problems with it, great to fold away and easy to assemble. Good for fast walking or jogging. Not fast enough for those wanting to run at any speed.

Great treadmill, easy to fold / unfold and plenty fast enough for me.

The delivery crew were great. They brought it through the house and into. I did a lot of research before settling on this model, and i think i got it right. The speed range is spot on for me (i’m no spring chicken), and it was one of the few that had a pulse check. The delivery crew were great. They brought it through the house and into the garage. I was very grateful for that as the box was heavy and i didn’t have anyone to help me with it. The wife was a bit scathing when i said i was going to get a treadmill, but now she is using it as well.

Good price, just what we wanted for light use.

V-fit Fit-Start Motorised Folding Treadmill : Excellent, sturdy treadmill.

    Great machine for beginners. Only drawback for me was inability to create your own programs.

    Excellent, reasonably priced and i’m now doing 2 to. Excellent, reasonably priced and i’m now doing 2 to 3 miles most days. (and i’m not small so it’s taking a bashing).

    This treadmill is ideal as a first treadmill for someone who hasn’t really been doing a great deal of exercise. It was delivered on time and was well packaged. The instructions to set it up were fairly easy to follow and i managed to do it on my own without any problem. It is sturdy and well made and easy to use. It is also easy to fold up when not in use and doesn’t take up too much space. I have been using it for a month, but have only lost 3lbs. However, i do feel so much better and would definitely recommend buying one. The only downside with this one is the four programmes which are very slow and not at all taxing. As a result of this, i only use the manual option.

    We bought this on a whim (offer in store) and once it arrived i did wonder if it would be one of those clothes hangers like my cycle, but this is a very good way to get a bit of excersise indoors (i have lung issues with cold weather). I like that the bar is quite upright and has good height for me at six feet tall, the belt runs smoothly and after a bit of practise i can walk without holding on. I leave this set up most of the time but it’s very handy to get it out of the way when needs be and it’s quick and easy to do but if you are a little infirm it may be a little heavy for you to do. I would never have joined a gym so this is perfect, seems good build quality for the price.

    1. Delighted with this machine. Plenty of exercise just lugging it up the stairs as it is pretty heavy. This substantial bit of kit was easily put together, although one of the bolts need a bit of persuasion. Once up it’s easy to use and you don’t need a degree to operate it, as the controlo panel is self explanatory in most ways. Takes a bit of effort to raise the running board to vertical, but it stands quite securely and takes up comparatively little space. I would recommend a good quality equipment mat if you intend to use it on carpets, but overall i am delighted with this product, and it has operated perfectly for a few months now.

    Instructions were a little vague but worked out eventually.

    1. I’m 100kg, 185cm tall guy and this thing works just fine. Can’t complain but only the assembly wasn’t so easy since the screws wouldn’t align so easily but with a bit of patience and skill everything’s just fine.

    Just what we wanted, folds down for easy moving. Construction very strong, and value for money.
