The CardioStride 3.0’s affordable price is closely related to its manual feature: indeed, the machine does not come with the usual electronic components, a fact that largely accounts for its price. By this token, this unit can be considered quite economical since you won’t have to spend a fortune on extra electricity bills. According to fitness experts, manual treadmills are slightly more efficient than electric ones since you need extra muscle power to move the belt. This will encourage you to indulge in much longer strides which consequently speeds up fat loss and toning up. Best of all, since it does not require an electrical outlet, this model can literally be placed in just about any room of the house, regardless of how well-equipped the room is. In fact, the only thing that users need is a couple of batteries for the display console.

The console is extremely easy to use and can be read from afar, without having to strain your neck. With this gadget, users will be able to track a plethora of information about their workouts. Examples of such fitness-related data include the number of calories you’ve burned, incline level, distance covered, time, heart rate and the likes. In spite of its basic features, the CardioStride 3.0 even provides an accurate reading of your pulse: a feature that can come in extremely handy to elderly users since they can immediately stop when they’re overdoing it. Similarly, the heart rate monitor can be used by professional athletes who need to keep a close watch on their pulse recovery time.

In fact, contrary to popular belief, this model boasts of no less than 3 incline levels that can add some extra intensity and panache to your training session which means that you’ll be able to lose weight in less time.

The treadmill is also equipped by a weighted dual flywheel, thanks to which you can enjoy the numerous benefits of an exquisitely smooth training session. Thanks to the manual feature, users won’t even need to worry about the motor since the treadmill is completely self-propelled. Therefore, athletes determine how slow or fast they want to go, according to their stamina.

Size and Safety

Extremely compact, the Weslo CardioStride 3.0 only weighs 65 pounds which makes it easy for users to carry it around. You can even fold it up when you’re not using it to save floor space. The deck is padded to absorb shock and impact, hence protecting both your knees and joints while you work out.

Drawbacks

The main drawback reported with this model was related to the lack of motorized features. Therefore, advanced users who are fond of more intense training sessions were disappointed by the lack of an automatic incline or speed adjustment function. Another person reported that the machine was so lightweight that it moved during vigorous running sessions but this complaint was not widespread.
