Merit Fitness 715T Plus Treadmill

Merit Fitness 715T Plus Treadmill is a simple entry-level treadmill that performs well for the price one pays.

Its features are not numerous when compared with larger and more expensive treadmills, nor is the running surface that spacious, etc. But for women, kids, the elderly, and smaller framed men, this treadmill will do the job.

This is a great entry-level home treadmill - for kids, women, and the elderly. If you are anything near 250 pounds (official limit), maybe you should consider a more expensive, but stronger and larger treadmill - with 18" (46 cm) of walking/running width, it is somewhat too narrow.

The treadmill is very light (around 100 pounds - 45 kg) and is easily moved around.
