If you need a treadmill for your home then Weslo G5.9 can be a very good option you can consider. This is one of the most popular treadmills in this price range. You will find that the treadmill has better features than others when you compare this one with its competing products.
Here are some of the features that will help you make a choice.
You get 6 workout programs which are designed for weight loss and intense training. 6 different programs mean that you can easily choose one according to your fitness goals. A heart rate monitor is also provided in this machine to help you monitor your heart rate. This is a common feature but some people like to monitor it and keep it in a specific range, so it becomes helpful to them.
Again, when you want to further increase the intensity of your training you can always use 2 position manual incline of this treadmill. Manual inclines are more robust as there are lesser moving parts involved and you can simulate running or walking uphill. A folding ergonomic design ensures that your treadmill is always easy to use.
You have to keep in mind that this is an entry level machine and you cannot expect a heavy duty work out from this. At this price point, it is value for money for what it offers. If you want better features, you will have to shell out a lot more.
We would suggest to get this machine if you are a beginner and get started with your workouts, instead of saving more and taking more time for your purchase.

What We Like
Weslo G5.9 treadmill is a good overall package which gives you everything at a very good price. You get pre-programed workouts, cushioned surface, foldable design and smooth motion. Entry level machines cannot get any better than this. In fact this is an ideal choice, if you are looking for something to walk.
But if you are a heavy user or a distance runner and need a heavy duty treadmill, then this may not be a good option for you. Again, those machines will cost you a couple of times more than this.
You don’t get any extras here like water bottle holders or speakers and fans. You can find these on entry level machines but then the most important job of a treadmill is to provide a good workout. These are extras.
The components are of decent quality and they will easily last you for 2-3 years without asking for any replacements. It also depends on the kind of usage you will have.
- Foldable design
- Programed workouts
- Less warranty
- Speed only up to 10mph
- Small track
