Walkingpad treadmill review

What is the difference between a treadmill and a WalkingPad?

by King Smith 15 Sep 2022 1 comment

Due to the climate and some irresistible factors, many people have started an office life at home, and more and more people enjoy workout at home to stay healthy and away from the pain of being sedentary. So the foldable walking pad for home use has become the popular choice.

What is walkingpad?

Walkingpad was invented by a scientific team of KingSmith Fitness. They were under the pressure of work for a long time and didn't even have any time or place to work out. They need a product that would allow them to increase their daily steps while working and not take up too much space when not in use. So a folding walking machine was born, and it is the walkingpad.
Today, the walkingpad series is no longer just a walking machine with maximum speed of 3.7MPH, but also a compact, foldable treadmill with a maximum speed of 7.5MPH. The most amazing thing is that it covers just 0.15 square meters after folding.

The pros and cons of WalkingPad compared with traditional treadmill

How to choose between a treadmill or walkingpad 

Combining the pros and cons of treadmills and walkingpad is not difficult to choose, and there is no best fitness machine for everyone's needs or training intensity. Everyone is different (e.g. their fitness goal, budget, usage scenario, space, pace, and needs), so weigh the pros and cons of each treadmill based on your training needs, to figure out what type of machine you need.

Saw a video of a man 350 plus pounds on a walking pad. Can this be used if over 350
