I bought this treadmill for the fact that it fit under a bed. I guess I should have figured that it would be a bit undersized for my needs,I bought this online so it was a bit hard to tell how big it was - i could have looked closer at the dimensions listed and known this prior to buying it. It turned out to be ok because my wife loved how "cute" it is.
She started using it in the bedroom (yes, it really does fit under our bed). She uses it for a few minutes in the morning and then puts it back. I have to say that the knobs to lay down the bars the hold the control panel where a little difficult to figure out but once i read the instructions printed on the knob and it was more clear. It did make sense to my wife, probably because she read the instruction first. The handle bar in front folds up easy and locks into place and seams plenty strong enough. Ihave tried it out and it seams to do ok with my weight (i am 220 lbs and 6'1") but the belt is a bit narrow and I keep stepping on the side part. This didn't seam to be an issue for my wife though. Like I said, this treadmill is small. I would say this is a good treadmill if you are weigh around 150 pounds or less. I would also say that it is great for being able to put it out of the way when you are not using it. But for someone my size I have to look for something bigger. I should add that my wife is not that technical minded and the programs and controls are very easy for her and the fact that she bring it out and put it away easy is a big plus. We have owned it for about a month and no problems yet. It sounds pretty quite too.
