Foldaway Treadmills Offer Options For Those Low On Space
By Kevin Urban
If space is a commodity in your home workout area, then foldaway treadmills are something to consider when looking at the many brands and models available. While folding features won't transform your 300-pound treadmill into a thimble for storage, the option allows for easier closet, corner or sometimes under the bed storage, making foldable treadmills a good home choice.
Most major fitness equipment manufacturers offer foldaway treadmills in their lines, so quality and choice don't have to be sacrificed if space is an issue. The costs range from the $100 mark for manual machines that fold to well into the $1,000-plus range for electronic models that allow for easier storage. Makers such as Smooth and Nordictrack provide many of the best folding treadmill models that fold for easier storage.
When looking to buy one of the many folding treadmills on the market, this particular option doesn't mean you have to sacrifice quality. Top notch machines, such as Smooth's 5.0 offer a folding option and superior quality to boot. This model still comes with a 2.5 horsepower continuous motor. It offers speeds of 0.6 to 10 miles per hour, 12 percent elevation, push-button electronics, a cushioned deck, 3 pre-set programs, 6 user programs and more. In addition, this machine comes with a 10-year motor warranty, a lifetime frame warranty and offers a 275-pound user capacity. The model costs about $1,000.
Nordictrack offers quite a few foldable treadmills for customers. The company's registered SpaceSaver design is offered on at least eight of its different models, opening up an array of options for customers who need folding technology as a must. SpaceSaver allows storage when the spring-loaded deck is raised and locks into place. Wheels are built into the base to allow for easy movement into a closet or storage area. Once you're ready to use one of these foldaway machines again, all you need to do is tilt down the deck, and the machine is good to go.
If foldaway treadmills are for you, worry about options doesn't need to be a consideration. Most major manufacturers have added folding technology to their machines to assist customers who need to conserve space when their treadmill isn't in use.
