The V Fit PT12/1 is a fully foldable treadmill, which really is a must for home fitness machines. The main running area folds vertically and fits tight against the mail control area at the front of the treadmill, significantly reducing the storage footprint of this unit
Costing around the £500-£600 mark this treadmill fits well in the mid-range category, with a standard 12km/h top speed that is normally found in this range of treadmills. 12km/h may be a little limiting for the more accomplished runner, but it will be more than sufficient for most people. Running at this speed for a sustained length of time will give you a very good workout. Combine with this a peak incline of 8%, even a strong runners will definitely feel it.
The running desk is powered by a 1.25hp motor, and offers a fully shock-absorbing, flexi-desk running area. There are 6 displayed functions that include workout time, distance travelled, current speed, heart rate, and calories burnt. There is a safety auto-stop key in case you run into problems while working out, and the maximum recommended weight of the user for this particular model is 100kg (220lbs), which again is standard for this level of treadmill.
The V Fit PT12/1 motorised folding treadmill has manual control options where you specify and adjust the speed and incline as you run, as well as 9 great pre-set workout speed functions that will push you by offering a variety of speeds over the duration of you run.
