Apples to Oranges—Which Treadmill to Purchase: Folding or Non-folding?
This entry was posted on October 16, 2014.
The treadmill machine is as commonplace, in most living spaces, as the potted, floor standing, faux, hibiscus tree houseplant. Folding treadmills are an attractive buy. They can be moved out of the way when you need to clean up and stored out of sight when repurposing the space. Apartment dwellers have to be savvy about maximizing their living space. If you live in a studio or one bedroom dwelling, you can still get a decent workout with some strategic space planning. Having limited space doesn’t mean limiting your fitness regimen. Usually, there is space hiding in even a cramped apartment—you just have to look for it.

Folding and non-folding treadmills differ in a few key ways. Folding treadmills, because of their frame construction, are a little less stable than non-folding treadmills; however, some people see the fold-up feature as a plus. You may want to consider a fold-up treadmill as a solution in space-starved dwellings; however, a non-folding treadmill may still be an option. A non-folding treadmill is more suitable for runners or joggers because it has a higher weight limit and more stability for high-impact activity. The Precor 9.35 Premium treadmill, designed with shock absorbers at the front of the reversible deck to cushion joints even with high-impact activity, is a two-of- the-line treadmill. The Foot Plant Technology continually measures your foot speed up to 710 times per second to learn and intuitively meet your foot stride. The Precor 9.35 rivals commercial treadmills in fitness clubs and is the only treadmill with a workout log and paced, allowing you to track and improve your progress.
