Merit Fitness 715T Treadmill

The Merit Fitness 715T Treadmill is a terrific option for people who are seeking a price-conscious way to begin or enhance a home gym.

This motorized treadmill boasts 1.75 horsepower and a variety of settings, allowing even the most occasional exercisers to find something suitable. With speed settings ranging from one to ten miles per hour, this treadmill is perfect for interval training, which requires users to change speeds suddenly and frequently. As someone who likes to be continually challenged, I appreciated the incline settings, which allow for an elevation range of zero to five percent. All settings are easily altered, so users who want to mix up their workout intensity will not find themselves lost in a maze of complicated instructions.

With an MSRP of under five hundred dollars, it stands out due to the amount of customization regarding a user's workout. For those who want a more tailored plan than simply tweaking the speed or elevation would provide, the treadmill offers four programs to help users accomplish specific goals such as weight loss or improved endurance.

This treadmill incorporates a folding design which is ideal for people who want to easily store the device after a workout. However, note that the folding system does not have hydraulics to help with the task, so users must be prepared for the weight of the treadmill when attempting to fold it up.

It has a very quiet motor, which is great for users who want to watch television or listen to music without having to compensate for the roar of equipment.

The addition of the thumb-grip heart rate monitor and the dual cup holders make this treadmill perfect for anyone who wants a quality product and smart features without having to spend a large amount of money
