Historically, folding treadmills have been derided throughout the fitness industry as machines that any serious athlete should snub. There’s a reason for this poor reputation; folding treadmills at the local box store are more like toys than treadmills, made with lower-quality components and certainly not built to last. But as a specialty fitness retailer, Gym Source demands top-quality construction from the brands we carry, and two of our favorite fitness equipment manufacturers—FreeMotion and LifeSpan—have engineered premium folding treadmills that give users all the durability, options and convenience found in traditional heavyweight machines.
The 1500 GSX Folding Treadmill by FreeMotion packs quite a punch despite its small size. It features customizable fitness programs, a multitude of preset programs, and a high-performance motor complete with a powerful (and patented) EnduraDrive™ system. Plus, elevate your workout with built-in iFit® technology integrated with Google Maps (meaning you can customize your training route to any terrain worldwide), along with dual-grip heart rate monitors, and triple autobreeze workout fans. You even have the option to create an online profile to track your progress!
Not to be outdone, the Lifespan TR3000i is a durable, affordable treadmill and winner of a recent “Best Buy” industry award. Users love the chic design and convenient features. Easy-to-use handlebar controls enable quick adjustments to speed and incline; the colorful display enables easy, intuitive progress tracking; and the exercise programs let you choose from goals like “Weight Loss,” “Healthy Living,” “Sports Training,” and “Heart Rate Control.” The TR3000i also includes a USB port for easy data upload into your mobile device or online LifeSpan account.
Both of these folding treadmills come standard with features and options that typically cost much more on a larger machine. And thanks to their space-saving designs, both machines are ideal for home use. You get full workout results and convenience combined!
