Worth the cost - Good for casual walkers not for joggers!!
17 November 2018
I use to take morning walks on daily basis. Due to pollution and hectic weather conditions and rains on times it became hard to go for a walk outside. So I decided to get a treadmill but don't want to put lot of money. I already know many friends who have their treadmills not being touched for years.
I checked lot of treadmills on stores and online but nothing is under my budget. I know this is a light weight treadmill and its max human load is not above 90kg. This treadmill is worth the cost you put and you should again note that you cannot jog or run in this treadmill as you may think this is going to break.
You can do a continuous 30-40 mins walk on this on 5-6km speed. Also, it has a inbuilt program modes of 12 which is useful if you want a little higher cardio burnout. It has a speaker and AUX cable so you can connect you phone and use this as external speakers. It also has a USB provision so you can connect a pendrive and listen songs but note, you cannot skip or browse songs, the only control you have is volume control.
On the other side I have heard many treadmill users complaining about knee or general muscle pain on legs. To avoid this don't use it for continuous 30 mins from day one. Train slowly, use it for only 5 mins for day one and see if you feel any pain. If you don't have pain try 10 mins from few days later and gradually move on to 20 and 30 mins.
For first week I used it only 10 mins a day, then 15 mins on second week and gradually moved and now I use for 30 mins a time and I have no knee or leg pain. Also, when you start walk for 2km speed for 1 min, increase speed to 3kms for 2nd minute, make it 4km for 3rd minute and so on. Then don't suddenly get off from the treadmill at higher speeds. Gradually reduce the speed by minutes. If you are walking 6km at max and you plan to stop, then reduce the speed to 5km and walk for a minute, then reduce the speed to 4km and walk for a minute and repeat this until you slow down to 2km and you can stop.
This warm up and warm down process will avoid knee pain, muscle pain and cramps.
