What Customers Are Saying
The Phoenix 98510 has been accepted well by people of all ages and fitness levels. It has been met with excellent reviews by those who have tried this product. Its affordability against its quality, ease of assembly, ease of use, and quality construction, makes this treadmill a winner within its category.
Here is what customers are raving about this product:
“It does give you a good workout for walking since it does have a slight incline on it.”
“It’s small and folds up easily for great storage.”
“I was worried about the 13” width for the walking surface, but it’s fine! I can see where I might be able to jog eventually… but I’m doing well to finish 15-20 minutes just walking. My heart rate is up within minutes…the workout is really better than I expected. Lots of glutes, quads, hamstrings…all get a terrific workout. I’m very happy with this machine.”
That said, a few have pointed out that it requires more effort and willpower to run faster on this machine as it is self-powered. The equipment also calls for some maintenance such as regular application of lubricant for the belt.
The Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill is a basic but sturdy and affordable piece of equipment. It may not be suitable for advanced runners or those who prefer state-of-the-art features, however, beginners and bargain hunters will find that this treadmill over delivers for its low price.
