I bought this treadmill because it was small and portable and I wanted something for upstairs (my real treadmill is in the basement) that I could tuck away in the hall closet. Well, besides being able to do that, it's pretty much a waste of money. Easy to assemble but then I got on it. Takes a lot of adjusting to get the belt at the right resistance, about 1/2 hour of tweeking. Feels out of control when you walk. Have to pay attention to your stride or it can be jerky. Could never take my hands off the handlebars or who knows what would happen! Manual does NOT mean magnetic resistance. The walk is not smooth at all. And, it's not that quiet. Overall, spend the extra $150 and get a Proform. Spend several hundreds more and get a nice Nordictrack....which I've had for 8 years and still love.

I absolutely love the WorkFit by Exerpeutic treadmill desk -- it has become a way of life. I now walk between 4 and 5 miles each morning When I weigh myself and watch the digits decrease, it is a huge inducement to get right back on the treadmill daily. I bought this in October and, without changing my diet or doing any other exercises, today is Thanksgiving and I am down 14 pounds already!! Yes, I am bragging, a trait I disdain, but folks let me tell you ... that is my greatest weight loss yet! I can just imagine my progress would be even greater if I were to change my diet and cut out some of the Papa Johns, Lays Classic, my own special recipe home-baked cookies, Sam's Club cheesecakes, and Blue Bell ice cream. Mind you, I don't eat like that every day; just whenever I get the urge. The time only goes up to 99 minutes, then the time starts all over at zero. The distance and calories continue to count upward, but not the time. Don't care though; still love it!! The desk arrived in 2 separate boxes. No freight company needed, just my regular UPS guy -- he carried it in without a dolly or anything. Sorry for the reviewers who complain about the condition it was in. But as for me, upon opening, every piece was perfect; not a scratch. I'm in my mid-60s and have been totally non-mechanical all my life yet, when I got tired of waiting for my son to get here in the evening, ol' eager-beaver me started putting it together on my own. I did it all by myself -- except the last part -- the desk -- it was just too heavy for me to lift on my own (I have lousy upper body strength). My son finally arrived and put the desk on for me and I haven't looked back sense. Some lady complained the sensors and controls on the sidebars are back too far and WHOMP she fell. The speed and incline controls in the sidebars are also on the console right in front of you; no need to use the sidebars for that anyway (although I use the sidebars without issue). But why even reach back when common sense tells you to touch the buttons directly in front of you. The only other feature on the sidebar is taking your pulse. I'm not sure how well that even works, considering you are moving and to take a valid pulse one should sit still. Again, common sense tells you to turn the treadmill off or step off to the sides when monitoring your pulse if you find the controls are back too far for you. I suppose some people want to take their pulse while walking to stay within a target range -- not me, I simply pay attention to my breathing which tells me when I'm working out too hard and I stop. Possibly I have a different version from the people complaining that the drink/pencil holders are back too far. Mine are immediately to my left and to my right, within very easy reach (I'm 5'4"); maybe they improved the design since their purchase. The only thing not within reach is the power strip (with 3 plugs, picture showed only 2 plugs) but I have no need to reach the power while walking anyway. The one and only thing I did not like was having to reach down to my keyboard. I have a 2" binder under my keyboard and that resolves that issue. At first it looked like a huge elephant, LOL, but with time and mental adjustment, it seems to fit the area better and actually looks smaller in my eyes. When I work up an appetite for lunch, my metabolism is in high gear from all the walking so I eat whatever I want with the knowledge that my body is burning it up faster than my norm -- the proof is in the ........ morning scale routine. I finally have a reason to smile and no longer think the scale is my enemy. Next up: How about making a stationary bike with a full desk like this treadmill? A little variety would be great, as long as I can keep working on the computer. Back to square one ... I absolutely love the WorkFit by Exerpeutic treadmill desk -- it has become a way of life. I recommend it to anyone who has at least 30 pounds to lose; you will see those ol' pounds just melt away while reading your email each day (multi-tasking at it's finest). Thank you WorkFit!!

I selected this treadmill for low price, stable arm support position and low walking speed. I meets my need for feeling secure while getting exercise. I can put my full weight (312 lbs) without fear of bending the arm supports. Assembly was easy and fast. The treadmill folds by lifting the tread to vertical. The "footprint" is reduced to 28" wide by 20" deep. In that position it rolls on four wheels for easy storage. The power cable is removable similar to a desktop computer. Tread slope is not adjustable. A good value.

It arrived packaged well, extremely so for such a large item. I was able to put it together with little trouble. It is, as mentioned by another customer, extremely heavy and I would suggest having two people to carry it where you want, but I was able with will-power and the strenght I have (I'm 60) to get it to my basement by taking the items out of the box and CAREFULLY sliding it down the stairs. It works excellent, and being 5'7" the stride is perfect for me. It's also an excellent exerciser for my dog!

I wanted a wide, well-built, low cost treadmill without all the bells and whistles that usually turn out to be wasted money. The Exerpeutic TF1000 Walk to Fitness Electric Treadmill more than fits the bill.. I was able to assist the delivery driver, who had a hand truck, with moving the package inside. Track the package online and if you cannot have help available for delivery, make sure the local delivery service is aware beforehand that they will need 2 people and a hand truck to unload. Well packaged, mostly assembled and very easy to unpack and setup. Be careful attaching computer board to frame. Although wires are now preattached, not using care when stuffing wires behind circuit board could no doubt cause problems later. Wheels work for moving unit but could be a little larger for use on carpeting and 6.5' power cord could be longer. Height of safety handles fit me OK (I am 5'10") but I can see where taller people have complained about it. I often just set the back of my fists on top of the handles or use my fingertips when walking. Pulse monitor is convenient on handles but you must grab both handles correctly and give it a while to get up to actual rate. Centering belt adjustments are sensitive and, unlike instructions, no more than about 1/16 turn with wrench, then actually using treadmill for some time, is key when adjusting. Minor beefs aside, I found this treadmill built for heavy duty use and without useless internet links or cheap speakers. Computer, while basic, includes important features like timer countdown shutoff and target pulse rate alarm. It is very quiet, especially good when watching TV or listening to music. It is wide enough that I can use it with my dog. Safety handles are padded, plenty long with nice, wood end plugs. The handle mounted controls are very convenient and useful. Altogether the Exerpeutic TF1000 Walk to Fitness Electric Treadmill is exactly what I was looking for and a very good value for the money.
