V Fit have a large range of treadmills as well as other home fitness machines, and the PT12/2 Intermediate is a great example. It will cost you around £550-£600, but for this price you get an array of features. Firstly, a very important aspect of this treadmill is that is can be folded, which significantly reduces the room is takes up and can be stored away easier. When folding the actual running area is pushed up to a vertical position and fits tight against the front console area.
The V Fit motorised treadmill is powered by a 1.5hp motor that will generate top speeds of 12km/h and power inclines of up to 8%. 12km/h is around 8mph, and is a good top speed for general runners. When combined with the 8% incline it will offer a tough workout for all. However, more elite runners may find the top speed a little limiting, but for the vast majority of us it is more than sufficient, particularly if you are sustaining this speed for longer periods.
The running area is 1.2m in length and 42cm wide, and offers shock-absorbing technology so that it is easier on your joints than standard road running. The belt also offers smooth running because it is impregnated with silicon. The V Fit comes with a 6 function LCD control monitor, and displays calories burnt, heart rate, distance travelled, speed, and workout time. There is also 1 manual mode and 12 pre-set workouts. There are also other features such as an added auto-stop safety key, the simple folding ability, and wheels for easy moving.
