MaxKare Folding 2.5 HP Treadmill Review

MaxKare Folding 2.5 HP Treadmill Review

By J. Maki 


An inexpensive treadmill option for those seeking light to moderate exercise. MaxKare states this unit is built for those individuals who are between 4.6 – 6.2 feet and weigh less than 220 pounds, so this is not a viable option for larger runners like myself. In terms of convenience, assembly is simple and can be completed under 30 minutes, and storage is facilitated by its ability to fold and be moved utilizing built-in wheels. The LCD display is straightforward and gives you all of the measurables you need to keep track of your progress, just don’t expect any capacities to connect with your smart devices. The speed of this treadmill tops out at 8.5 mph, and you can adjust it conveniently using the model’s handgrips. However, changing the incline of the machine requires manual manipulation, and you are limited to only 3 degrees of adjustment. 

What makes the MaxKare Folding 2.5 HP Treadmill unique?

Convenience and conduciveness to smaller spaces. If you don’t have much room for a treadmill, this model may be beneficial. 

What is the MaxKare Folding 2.5 HP Treadmill missing?
