The V Fit BST-TM electric treadmill is a mid-range machine that will set you back around £500. This is a folding treadmill and therefore is ideal for home use because it can be reduced in size and stored away when not being used. This is a fully motorised and digitally controlled treadmill, meaning that the speed and incline of the running surface is controlled via a central main control unit at the front of the treadmill.
The top speed of this particular V Fit model is 12Km/h, which is around 8mph. This is a good speed for a lot of people, but fitter people looking for a more hardcore workout may find this top speed a bit limiting. However, V-Fit BST-TM folding electric treadmill does ramp up to an incline of 15%, which is pretty steep and will add to the hardness of the workout significantly. So 12Km/h with a 15% incline will make even the fittest of us work hard and definitely provide a solid workout experience.
The running surface is well cushioned and is silicone impregnated so that it will run smoothly without continuous maintenance. This particular V Fit model has a running area with a length of 1.2m and a width of 0.4m, which is a good size, and it is recommended that the maximum user weight is no more than 100kg (220lbs). It also comes with a handy bottle holder.
