Successful home fitness

If you have already attained some learn of fitness and have a regular work-out plan in place then you may not need or even want to hear our advice.

For those who are just starting out and are questioning whether or not an inexpensive model like the Stamina InMotion Manual Treadmill can really be of help. This may be easy for us to write but don’t doubt what we say here it’s the truth. You do not need the most expensive, nicest exercise machine to get in shape and lose weight.

While it’s nice to have a top of the line treadmill to use as your home workout machine. How many people do you think waste 1000’s of dollars buying one and never reach their weight loss or fitness goals?

How nice the machine is doesn’t matter when it comes to exercising the most important factor is is the determination and commitment of the individual. To get up off the couch and exercise.

If you think a machine is going to give you motivation, maybe in the short-run but not in the long-run.

Understand what you are buying

We are not claiming the InMotion Manual Treadmill better than models costing $1000+ of course it’s not. What we are saying, if your budget can only afford something in this price range, a determined person can use it to reach their goals.

It’s definitely not going to be as durable as the more expensive models. A person using it multiple times a week will be lucky to get two-three years of use out of it.

Speaking of durability, something else you will want to take not of it has a weight capacity of 225 lbs. If you are at this weight, you can walk, jog and run on it. But realize you will be putting more stress on the machine compared to a small lady.

What happened to the motor?

This is a “manual treadmill”, meaning it’s not powered by a motor. You will be required to turn the tread belt with your leg power. Does that not sound like a good work-out?

There’s not much to this model as far as bells-and-whistles go.

  • Two incline settings (10 and 8 degrees)
  • Sturdy steel frame with the ability to fold up to save space when not in use
  • Roll-away wheels for easy storage
  • Center console (time, distance, calories)
  • Non-slip tread belt; padded front and side rails
  • The frame is under warranty for 1-year.
  • 90-day parts warranty
  • The tread belt is adjusted by the manufacture but if for some reason you need to increase or decrease the tension it can be adjusted.
  • On average the assembly time is 15-20 minutes, follow the instructions provided in the manual.

The Bottom Line

If you have been looking around the internet for information on the Stamina InMotion Manual Treadmill, there are a ton of customer reviews on various sites.

When a product has hundreds of reviews, we usually consider this a good thing. Compared to one guy giving a product a 5-star rating and saying, “It works perfect for me!”.

Usually when a product has hundreds of different people giving their opinions this provides a sense confidence on how good or bad the product is and will it be able to satisfy your specific needs.

Overall, the reviews of the Stamina InMotion Manual Treadmill, do not provide a sense of confidence. There are as many 5-star as 1-star ratings,. There are just as many people saying good things as bad things. This is usually not the case.

From our experience using this manual treadmill we wouldn’t give it a 5-star rating or a 1-star rating. But considering the price, around $100 we do believe it can provide value for a person on a budget.
