under the bed treadmill mUnder the bed treadmills are compact treadmills that, when folded, require very little storage space and they can even fit under most beds and sofas - hence their name.

People living in small houses and apartments that want to exercise in the privacy of their homes, but lack storage space, can get "under the bed treadmills" and have cardio workouts whenever they want.

Under the Bed Treadmills Features and Specifications

The most important feature of the "under the bed treadmills" is their compact dimensions when folded.

In order to fit under most beds and sofas, their folded height should not be more than 10 inches (25.4 cm), preferably not more than 6-7 inches (15-17.5 cm).

Thanks to such low height, most of the treadmills in this class come already assembled in the factory, saving some time and effort to the end-users.

This is the most important requirement upon which all other features and specifications depend, including walking/running deck size, treadmill weight, user weight limit, motor power, etc.

Walking/running deck size depends on the intended purpose of the treadmill - walking, jogging, running.

Typical walking deck size suitable for walking and perhaps light jogging features physical dimensions of (W x L) of 16 x 40 inches (~41 x 102 cm).

However, there are also treadmills in this category with a much larger running deck - for example, 3G Cardio 80i features a running deck of (W x L) 18.5 x 58 inches (~47 x 147 cm), which allows trainees to comfortably walk, jog and run.

While walking treadmills for lighter trainees may have 1.0 - 1.5 CHP (Continuous HP) electric motors, treadmills for running should have at least 2.0 - 2.5 CHP, with stronger models having 3.0+ CHP motors.

However, many manufacturers advertise their treadmills using 'peak' power and claim that their treadmills are suitable even for running.

Personally, 2.0 - 2.5 Peak HP electric motors are strong enough to allow 200 pounds trainees to walk and slow jog, although this is also model-dependent.

The maximum supported user weight of "under the bed treadmills" is usually limited due to their 'thin' and lightweight construction and is usually in the 200-250 pounds (~90 - 113 kg) range, although there are models that support user up to or even more than 300 pounds (~136 kg) - for example, 3G Cardio 80i Treadmill supports users up to 325 pounds (~147 kg).

Incline, motorized/automatic, or manual, is not present in all models - in order to simplify construction, some models feature running decks of constant angle, usually horizontal or at a very low angle.

Units with motorized/automatic incline tend to be more expensive, but they also often come with other features like more versatile programs, wireless connectivity, Bluetooth heart rate monitors, and similar. But, all these features also increase the price of such units.

Note: although most of these units come preassembled and ready for use, before the very first use be sure to read the Owner's Guide and Warranty terms. Better safe than sorry...


"Under the bed treadmills" are a very popular type of treadmills with many rather popular models on the market for quite some time.

Here are some of the best and often not the cheapest models - if they fit your needs and requirements, they can help You increase strength and stamina, and burn plenty of extra calories.

Sunny Health & Fitness 8730 ASUNA Space Saving Treadmill

sunny asuna 8730 w300px

Sunny Health & Fitness 8730 ASUNA is powered by a 2.5 Peak HP motor, ensuring speed from 0.6 to 8 mph (1 to ~13 km/h) for users up to 220 pounds (~100 kg).

When ready for workouts, the physical dimensions of the Sunny Health & Fitness 8730 ASUNA are (L x W x H) 59 x 30.5 x 40 inches (~150 x 77.5 x 102 cm) and when the unit is folded for storage, its physical dimensions are (L x W x H) 64 x 30.5 x 5.25(!) inches (~163 x 77.5 x 13.4(!) cm).

Again, the height of the folded unit is just 5.25 inches (~13.4 cm) and the unit can easily fit under most beds and sofas.

Running deck dimensions are (L x W) 49 x 17.75 inches (~124.5 x 45 cm) - running deck perhaps could be slightly wider, but it is wider of the most "under the bed" treadmills. Also, with a length of 49 inches (~124.5 cm), the running deck is long enough even for runners.

Despite the low profile of the running deck, it is rather comfortable and absorbs impacts quite well.

The console is relatively simple and consists of a 4-window display, allowing the user to track Distance, Time, Step/Time, Steps, Calories Burned, and Speed.

Also, the console comes with a built-in 3.5 mm audio port and speakers.

Another important feature is the media holder which allows the trainee to position the smartphone or tablet without covering the console's display windows.

And when the workout is done, Sunny Health & Fitness 8730 ASUNA may be easily stored away via transport wheels - this unit can be stored both vertically (leaning on the wall for better stability) or horizontally.

Note: When the unit arrives, it is already assembled. However, before the very first use, be sure to read the manual thoroughly.

Personally, if You are a lighter person (below 180 pounds), and Sunny Health & Fitness 8730 ASUNA fits your needs, consider this unit as your "under the bed" treadmill. It has relatively strong construction, but if you are 'almost' 220 pounds and intend to use it on a daily basis, you need a much strong "under the bed" treadmill - consider 3G Cardio 80i Treadmill.
