Sunny Health and Fitness SF-T1407M Treadmill via Amazon
Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M is a 2015 release budget foldable manual walking treadmill with an LCD display panel that shows the standard calories burned, speed, distance, time and scan modes, 220 pound maximum user weight capacity at a very low price. It came out on the market by two other budget models, the SF-T1408M and SF-T1409M by Sunny Health & Fitness- a well known importer and distributor of fitness equipment products and they are based in LA in sunny California.
Gray Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T1407M weighs 46 pounds and measures 50 x 23 x 49 inches, has a non-slip walking/running deck or belt surface of 42 x 13 inch size, is a fixed incline model with dual flywheels, easy to store as it is foldable and has integrated wheels for easy transportation- can be moved around quickly and has a rather durable build with a steel frame. Features and specs wise it is similar to the older model SF-T808M by the company. The larger LCD display panel that is easier to read and twin flywheels for smooth exercise are what is different on the new model. For those that don’t know much about treadmills, manual means it will use your own weight and your movement is powering this model so there is no power consumption and you will be setting the pace / intensity with your legs. The advantage of your legs powering this unit is you will not be likely to overdo the exercise or suffer injuries with a machine running too fast beyond what you can handle.
Not so wide walking deck may seem as an inconvenience at first but it is actually an advantage as you will get reduced friction on the belt due to smaller size, as you can imagine 13 inch width is not a lot of space. You can’t change the incline as it is fixed and non-adjustable and you miss out on the flexibility that the adjustable incline brings to your exercise and there is no heart rate monitoring but you gotta give these small cons to this unit’s very low price tag. It is great for a long decent exercise session, and if you want to keep in shape without having to go to gym and due to its easy portability and relatively compact size it is easy to store somewhere convenient in your room if you don’t have a large living area. It is offered with a 1 year frame and 90 day parts warranty by the distributor, Sunny Health & Fitness.
