What We Like
What We Don't Like
We all know just how difficult it can be to find good gym equipment, especially when that piece of equipment is for a home and not a standard gym. There are unique factors that come into play, like limited space and a need to keep noise to a minimum. Today we are going to be reviewing the Shayin Portable Treadmill so that you can see if it is the right option for you.
Shayin Portable Treadmill Review
The Shayin Portable Treadmill is a piece of equipment that can be folded over in an effort to save space. It also features a solid and sturdy frame, meaning that it does not sacrifice durability for portability. The treadmill itself is assembled before it is shipped so, you only have to do a limited amount of work to set it up.
It measures a total of 61.4 x 28 x 47.6 inches and it comes with transport wheels that can be used to swiftly move it from point A to B. The belt itself is a typical moving belt and you can adjust the way that you use this treadmill to meet your own goals. The treadmill is quiet as long as you use a silicone-based lubricant.
Who is this product for?
A lot of people work long hours so that they simply do not have time to get to the gym; some people do not want to exercise outside. But, cardiovascular exercise is important because it is something that improves both physical and mental health.
The Shayin Portable Treadmill is a perfect option for a home gym because it requires a minimal amount of assembly, it can be folded away in order to save space, and it is really easy to use. You can either leave it where it is or roll it away. This all-rounder is suitable for both beginners and experienced runners.
It is worth noting that this treadmill is also a good option for people who suffer from pre-existing knee injuries, or for people who find that running on hard surfaces hurts their knees because of the efficient shock-absorbing system that this treadmill features with four springs on each side. There are also shock absorbing wheels at the rear end of the treadmill.
This treadmill is assembled free of charge and folded prior to being shipped. Simply insert a few screws to make sure that the treadmill will be both stable and safe to use after it arrives. To keep the treadmill maintained, you need to make sure that you rest the motor for at least fifteen minutes after every hour of exercise that you do; this treadmill has not been designed with long-distance endurance in mind.
The Shayin Portable Treadmill is easy to maintain, and it can be lubricated frequently using a silicone oil. The manufacturers recommend that this is done on a monthly basis.
Overview of Features
One of the first things that we like to take a look at when we look at treadmills is the amount of incline that they can offer you. This particular treadmill only has three different angles of incline. This is not a lot when you consider the fact that mid-range treadmills can offer you approximately 10-12 different levels of incline. Luckily, this treadmill can offer consumers a little bit of fun to make up for that.
On the console system of this treadmill, you can find a total of 12 pre-set programs, each of which has been designed to push you to your limits and past them. If you’d like to decide where your limits are, then you can take complete control and manually adjust the speed. The speed starts at 0.2mph and goes all the way up to 9.2mph in increments of 0.1mph. It is worth noting that you will have to work out what speed to set it at to start with.
If you are a beginner, you should not start out by attempting to run like Usain Bolt. You need to know where your own limits are, and you should not hurt yourself in order to try and find them. We would advise that you play around with the programs because some of them have been specifically designed to strengthen your heart muscle, help you lose body fat and help you get in shape.
The LCD-backlit console on this treadmill actually features multiple easy to read displays that are all easy to use. They enable you to track your progress, something that is really important to consider because it enables you to see just how far you have come. You can see a range of different statistics, including your heart rate and speed.
This Shayin Treadmill also comes with a safety feature in the form of a red safety key that can be found just below the control panel, as well as a red cord that you should attach to your clothes before you even think about running. That way, if you were to fall, the treadmill would stop immediately.
One of the few downsides of this treadmill for beginners is that it only features a few incline options, making it a terrible option for anyone who is looking to work on their endurance. If that is your goal, then you should take a look at the Reebok Jet 100 Folding Treadmill, a machine that features 12 different levels of incline and 24 different programs.
All in all, we feel that the Shayin Portable Treadmill is a great option for beginners and for people who view jogging on a treadmill as a hobby, opposed to running for sport. It doesn’t feature the levels of incline that some people need, but it can be used in small apartments and places where space is limited.
