Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose a manual treadmill over a motorised one?

As its name implies, manual treadmills need your muscle power to operate and, as such, give you more control of the equipment. Moreover, their mechanism is less complicated than the electric operated ones and thus don’t need much maintenance and will last longer than their motorised counterparts. The other advantage of a manual treadmill is that it is cheaper, more compact, and even lighter than the electrically operated treadmills. They are perfect for home gym owners who have very little room to place their equipment.

It is actually more challenging to ride on a manual treadmill’s belt than to run in the electric or motorised ones. Why? It’s because you use your own strength to keep the machine going; besides lifting your weight, you also have to exert effort to make the equipment move. That is a tall order for any exerciser. But the good news is, most manual treadmills run smoothly and are very easy to start its mechanism. You can subject it to a gentle push of your feet, and you’re on your way to a productive running exercise.

Space Saver

Since they don’t need complicated and plenty of components to run itself, manual treadmills have been known to be home gym friendly.

The foldable manual treadmill can be slipped inside your closet or under your bed. Just store it properly, so dust, dirt, and moisture do not accumulate inside it.

Muscle Powered

Manual means having to do it yourself. That means the engine of the equipment is your super strength leg power. It has tremendous positive implications for your lower leg, as well as your joints. Having to do the manual labour will provide your legs, thighs, buttocks, and hips with more pronounced development. Running exercise on a manual treadmill will wear you out quickly but will rapidly improve your physical attributes, especially your lower body. Since you can’t run on the manual treadmill faster, your joints are less impacted by the exercise and will not aggravate any physical limitations you might have in your joints.

Supercharged Running Exercise and Calorie Burning

While doing all the work on your manual treadmill, you give your body a chance to exceed its limitations. Working out on the manual treadmill exhausts your body more, forcing your heart rate to spike rapidly. This further improves blood circulation, which has a multitude of positive effects on your body. One of those gains is the fast burning of your stored calories. Calories are the natural fuel of your body to function or practically do any kind of movement. And so, when you laboriously run on the manual treadmill, your energy intake or calorie-burning increases. This makes all the calories stored inside your body be used up; thus, you won’t have dormant calories converted to unnecessary body fat.

How should I choose my manual treadmill?

Before selecting your new best home gym cardio machine buddy, make sure that you’ve considered all the essential factors so you can acquire the manual treadmill that suits you. Here are some guidelines you can use to choose your manual treadmill.


The first thing you would have to do is check the amount of space you have at home for your new manual treadmill. Manuals usually come in 2.3m x 1m size. Use this as a baseline to check if you have ample room for your new home gym equipment but verify the dimensions when you have resolved your mind to the manual treadmill you’re buying. But if space isn’t really enough, you can always go for folding manuals. Foldable manual treadmills are even smaller in size and can fit inside your closet or under your bed.

Weight capacity

Check the weight capacity of the manual treadmill you want to purchase. Manual treadmills more often have a max weight capacity of 125 to 150kg. An average built individual will most likely fit into any manual treadmill, but it doesn’t hurt to check. Plus, you might have friends or family members who would want to step into your new manual treadmill, so it’s better that you know for your and their own safety.


Having a manual treadmill with an incline feature would further boost your cardio workout. A 15% incline is the most manual treadmills are capable of. It is more than enough to wear your knees out and literally take your breath away.

Running Belt

Manual treadmills have two kinds of running belts: the flat belt and the curved belt. Flat belts are even-surfaced wide rubber bands that are activated when you run on the manual treadmill. They are best suited for walking rather than running. As for the curved type running belts, they give more consideration to the configuration of the balls and soles of your feet and so you have more traction in it when running.
