Although gyms have reopened, fitness enthusiasts across the UK have become accustomed to working out at home. The convenience and financial savings that come with ditching your gym membership for home workouts have made this option seem far more appealing than jostling with other gym-goers for the most coveted machines.
One possible issue which arises with home workouts is that unless you’re lucky enough to have a whole room dedicated to your exercise endeavours, you need equipment that you can tuck away between uses. Dumbbells, kettlebells, and resistance bands are all perfect for this.
However, having the space for something as heavy-duty as a treadmill probably seems like a pipe dream.
But with this portable treadmill by OVICX, it really isn’t.
This top-rated treadmill is lightweight enough to move around the house with ease and can be folded up and tucked away when you’re not using it.
One user was particularly impressed with the power of it considering its size, saying it’s a “brilliant product! I spent weeks looking for one that was compact yet had some ‘Umph!’. This has it. Don’t get me wrong, not lightweight but light enough to move around the house and has wheels on one end. Top speed is a good sprint and easy to change speeds back to a jog or walk. Worth every penny! Well built, great quality, can’t fault it”. Another happy customer concurred, said the treadmill was “easy to fold and put in a cupboard or corner”.
Running is famously tough on the joints, but this treadmill has built-in silkworm shock absorbers that decrease the impact running has on your ankles, knees, hips, and lower back, while also keeping noise at a minimum so you won’t disturb your flatmates or neighbours – no matter how hard you’re pounding.
One person did mention finding the treadmill heavier than they were expecting, but found the pros outweighed the cons, saying “fantastic treadmill, bit on the heavy side but as you can see it folds up nicely and has helped my mental health immensely”.
The fact that the treadmill is relatively compact and lightweight may be off-putting to those of a larger stature, as some smaller models are better suited to those of a more petite frame.
When you’re reading through the reviews, however, you’ll find plenty of positive experiences from those with large builds, such as this one – “my husband who is the runner in the family uses it easily and he is 6ft’3”.
While the treadmill is usually a pretty hefty investment, coming in at £639, it has just been given an epic discount of £189.01 – bringing it down to £449.99 and making it a pretty perfect time to buy.
If this treadmill seems like just the thing you need for your home gym, you can shop the model while it’s still heavily discounted here…
