As a personal trainer, I need a treadmill that can acclimate and support a variety of fitness levels as well as individuals of differing sizes and abilities. This treadmill did not meet my expectations or demands. For a beginning exerciser or a light weight individual who does not plan to put much milage or pounding, it would be fine. Anything or anyone more than that might be disappointed. I have several heavy clients who complained that it felt unsteady or like it might not support them even at low speeds. It was impossible for a male client who is well over six feet tall, weighing in around 240 lbs to do much more than a light jog. Even when I tried to speed intervals, it sounded like elephants were running in the room, and I have a light, midfoot strike. The control console is a bit difficult to see and doesn't seem user friendly. The programs are okay at best. I do appreciate the angle of the cupholders as well as the fact that there are two. Water is quickly and easily accessible as opposed to the upright holders found on most treadmills. It folds up quite simply for storage. For those who are new to working out or want something for walking or casual jogs, it will be just fine.
