We need to point something – Don’t make this mistake

At the top of the page we showed you an image of what this model looks like. The other day we were at Amazon reading what other customers had to say about the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill. We were also looking at the images provided. We don’t know if it’s an honest mistake or what (see picture below)…

On the Amazon page, the image of the treadmill below was included as one of the pictures, we are not sure what model this is but it’s definitely not the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill.

Not the right picture

This looks to be a much more expensive model. Scroll to the top of the page to compare the two images. We don’t want someone to order this from Amazon based on the picture below.

Like we said this could me a honest mistake.

The bottom line

Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill reviewIf you are wanting to buy a treadmill for home use for under $300, we believe the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill is the best available option.

We consider rating 3-5 stars as being satisfactory. The Customer Reviews/Rating image shown on the right show 85% of 1136 customers were satisfied with their purchase.

Most of the problems cited by the lower 1 and 2 star ratings we centered on assembly. If you are not mechanically inclined and even if you are, you may want to find a friend who can give you a hand assembling the unit.

If the thought of assembling the machine makes you think, YUCK!!! You may want to find someone you can pay to do it for you.

As we said, currently in 2015 this is the best electric treadmill with a motor you can buy for $300 and under.

Albeit a much simpler design, it does provide many of the same features of the more expensive models.

Such as, it’s folding to save space when in in use, has a digital center console with controls, provides programmed training apps, offers two incline positions and has a comfort cushion design to take stress off joints.

If you do decide to buy the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill be realistic about what you are buying, don’t expect it to match the quality of the expensive treadmills you may have used at your local gym.

If you can afford to spend a few more bucks, take a look at the top three models for under $1000 we have listed on our home page.
