Do you want a compact treadmill that folds up when you’re not using it? This foldable treadmill walking pad easily folds in half and conveniently rolls out of sight.
This small piece of fitness equipment has wheels on the front and only weighs about 60 lbs. Therefore, you can slide it under a sofa, a desk or a bed.
Note: Because this treadmill folds in half, it creates its own “lid”.
In other words, the top enclosure prevents dust build-up on the walking belt. This translates to less cleaning and maintenance – a great deal in my opinion!
Does the WalkingPad Make a lot of Noise?
Understandably, many people ask if walking treadmills produce a lot of sound when you step on them. This device has a noise-resistant multilayer structure to help quiet your footsteps.
Furthermore, the walking pad includes a unique feature called “footstep induction speed control”. In other words, you an control the speed of the treadmill belt simply through your steps (via a high precision pressure sensor).
On the other hand, this machine comes with its own remote control. Therefore, you can adjust the speed from your hand. For example, use the remote to start, stop, accelerate or decelerate the walking belt.
Comparing a WalkingPad VS a Treadmill
As I mentioned above, the folding treadmill walking pad has several advantages due to its compact size. For example, one person can move it, you can store it under a bed and you can easily use it in a small home office.
In addition, a foldable walking pad appeals to people who prefer minimalistic design or a light treadmill. Plus, some people don’t like the upright arms of a traditional fitness machine.
On the other hand, more expensive treadmills typically have a higher horsepower motor and can support more weight. In fact, some have a faster speed capacity and allow you to use them for running as well.
Furthermore, higher-end treadmills often come with advanced tracking capabilities and high-tech features.
Pros & Cons of a Small Treadmill Remote Control:
Instead of having a large console on your desktop that takes up space, you get a small hand-held device that you can stick in your pocket. Many people appreciate the simplicity and convenience.
That said, you don’t get the extra features of a larger control panel that allows you to track your distance or calories. However, if you already have a FitBit or other app tracker, you may not care.
