Pros of Smooth Fitness 5.65 Folding Treadmill
The Smooth Fitness 5.65 Folding Treadmill was built for comfort and to make your workouts as easy as possible. This unit was especially designed to minimize injuries and maximize results. With its 14 workout applications, you’ll be sure to find one that will help you achieve your objectives.
It has a superbly lit LCD screen that displays heart rate, distance, speed, inclination angle, time and calories. The LCD display is wider than usual, which is great for people of small stature. The monitor allows you to check your progress and allows you to make the necessary adjustments on the fly if you are not meeting your targets. We also loved the deluxe iPod compatible sound system that allows you to listen to your favourite tracks while doing your workout.
The unit is very quiet despite its powerful 2.75 HP continuous-duty motor, so you won’t have to worry about waking the kids up when you workout in the morning. The unit runs very smoothly and doesn’t take up too much room and its folding design make’s it very convenient for people with limited space.
Cons of Smooth Fitness 5.65 Folding Treadmill
Even though the Smooth Fitness 5.65 Folding Treadmill is a great machine, it is not perfect. First, we have to say that the unit was heavier then expected, which makes it difficult to move.
Although it is a very reliable unit, you might have issues if you encounter technical problems along the way. This is due to the limited number of technicians employed by the company. This means that you may have to wait for months before your equipment can be checked by a technician.
Another thing about this unit is that you might have difficulty assembling it. Most of the customers found the unit too difficult to assemble even with the help of the manual. Many of them have said that they had to seek assistance from a technician to assemble their unit. Some customers have also complained that it squeaks at certain inclinations, however, this can be fixed with proper lubrication.
It also doesn’t come with a shelf where you can keep your musical device. This means that if you want to use your mp3 player or iPod, you will have to buy a shelf for that purpose.
The Smooth Fitness 5.65 is a pretty good fold up treadmill. It is reasonably priced compared to other treadmills with similar features.
Its ease of use and large LCD display makes it the best home treadmill for any member of the family and the cushioned walking surface is very easy on the heels and joints, which is great for people who suffer any kind of joint pain.
The unit also comes with a lifetime warranty on the motor and frame, 4 years on parts and electronics, and 2 years for labour. This unit is very durable, and runs extremely smoothly considering its very powerful motor. All in all, this is a great unit for people who are serious about meeting their workout objectives and its size makes it perfect for people with limited space.
