The V Fit MPTM-2 motorised treadmill is a sleek-looking higher end fitness machine, costing around £600-£700. As the name suggests this model is folding, meaning that it can be stored away much easier. The running desk hinges and folds upright to an almost vertical position and reduces the footprint significantly.
This treadmill is great for all ages and running abilities, reaching an impressive 16km/h (approximately 10mph). This is a great top speed and increases the appeal of this particular model, since others in the range generally offer lower top speeds of around 12km/h. While the very elite runners may require slightly higher top speeds, 16km/hr is a very reasonable speed, and a lot of us will find it tough to maintain, or even reach this speed in the first place. As an added variability the motorised treadmill inclines to 15%, which is pretty steep, so you can mix up your workouts, either walking at a steep incline or running at a lower incline.
All functions are powered by a 1.25hp motor, which pushes the 1.3m running belt smoothly under your feet. There is a central front mounted LCD console that displays distance travelled, speed, calories burnt, incline, heart rate, and workout time. There are also 6 pre-set workout programmes and also 1 manual control programme that lets you manually set speeds as you exercise.
