Lately the manual treadmill market has seen a wave of cheaper manual treadmills hit the market.
Some of the best treadmills we have seen can be found here.
But how did the Stamina Inmotion stack up in our review?
Lets take a look and find out.
Achieving a balanced and reputable design in the fitness market is often a great challenge. Finding that middle ground between unique and tried & tested can be very hard, and the treadmills that manage this are few and far between.
In our Stamina InMotion treadmill review, we will show you exactly which details make this piece of equipment so easy to use and effective and what we didn't like. With equal attention given to durability, adjustability and efficiency, the InMotion is a balanced treadmill with a lot to offer to the basic home user.
One look is enough to tell you that Stamina’s InMotion manual treadmill is certainly basic and on the cheaper side.
But this does not make it useless.
On the contrary, this treadmill has all the basic features, executed in a solid way, which are needed for a good walking routine.
The outer frame is constructed from solid steel and comes with a one year warranty. It is durable and fairly robust, even if the whole treadmill is fairly small in size.
There is also a focus on stability and the lower stands offer a wide footprint, adding to the safety.
Worth mentioning is the addition of skid resistant protectors all around the bottom of the treadmill. These rubber fittings prevent any possibility of skidding or shaking, and add a great feeling of security.
The handles are medium sized, perhaps even a tad bit short, but nonetheless placed perfectly in relation to the user. Padded with soft textured foam grips, they provide some much needed balance and stability during the exercise.
The running surface itself is assisted with two weighted flywheels which add smoothness to the movements of the treadmill and also minimize noise and friction. T
he treadmill still relies on your own pace and movements, so you’re the only one in control of the speed.
To help you track your progress over time, Stamina added a nice little InTouch Fitness Monitor.
This little user computer can help you track your distance, speed, time and calories burned – all with a touch of a button.
For those users who are serious about their workouts, this provides a great opportunity for keeping a little fitness diary.
You would be surprised at your progress in just a month’s time.
One important feature that sets this treadmill apart from those similar to it, is the dual incline feature.
While most treadmills in this price range are with a fixed incline, the InMotion comes with two different inclines.
These are changed with a simple operation, and can shift from a smooth, light incline, to a more steep one, giving you a needed challenge.
And best of all, this treadmill folds! No more worrying about the space.
Once you’re done, simply fold this treadmill vertically and wheel it somewhere out of sight. With its sleek profile and compact dimensions, the InMotion can be tucked beneath the bed, behind the door, or in the closet. For users with small spaces – apartments, garage gyms, or dorm rooms – this comes as a life saving feature.
In summary, the InMotion is a budget manual treadmill and whilst it's not all bad there are better offerings on the market.
Decent choice of features, a straight forward design, and plenty of adjustability, are some of the positives.
The size of the handles and the small running surface are some of the major drawbacks of this treadmill.
Hopefully our Stamina InMotion treadmill review has helped in your hunt for a treadmill.
