Another great seller on Amazon is this Citysports folding treadmill. This treadmill has some pretty good write ups and is certainly worth featuring on treadmill monkey, so here we go.
First off, let’s talk about the features. This showcases a 500W motor which the manufacturer says is low noise. The 5-layer running surface also has great shock absorption capacity. This is always a great feature on your joints. The weight capacity is a cool 100KG, something most treadmills in this price range don’t cover.
The LCD screen is pretty basic but actually looks really smart. The build quality is pretty sturdy for the price. As for setting it up, this is very easy indeed.
Why you might like this
The folding of any treadmill, we think is an important factor. This can be a game changer as some of the more expensive treadmills, often fold up but still take up space. This Citysports treadmill on the other hand, is another good contender for taking up little space.
In terms of using it for running, the absorption is pretty good. You don’t get as much of a bounce on this one and the belt seems to be fairly sturdy. Once complaint though, is that the belt was a bit folded in places, but over time it adjusted.
If you are wanting something pretty basic and don’t want to take up much room, this is a great option to go for. If you want to burn extra calories, you should read our blog on using a treadmill to burn 300 calories.
