The 3G Cardio Lite Runner Treadmill would be a great fit for any office. At an MSRP of $1,499, with an introductory special sale price of $999, it’s earned lots of praise.
Treadmillreviews.net gave the Lite Runner a Best buy Award, saying, “The Lite Runner Treadmill is a new $999 deal especially for walkers. It’s the lowest priced of four treadmills from 3G Cardio, a company that’s young but already earning lots of accolades for value. Overall 3G Cardio treadmills are designed with durable basics and lack ‘bells and whistles’ in order to minimize expenses. The Lite Runner Treadmill in particular is very compact (it can fit through a door frame) and has a small 18″ x 51″ workout surface. …. This streamlined fitness machine can be folded for behind-the-door storage too.”
3G Cardio’s “Mighty Mini” is small, but powerful. It’s built like a little tank, sturdy enough to jog on and when you’re done it can be folded up and easily rolled through the door for storage. It’s one of the best treadmills priced under $1,100 you’ll find anywhere.
The 3G Cardio Lite Runner measures just 67 inches (length) x 29 3-4 (width) x 52 1-2 (height). It can be folded up to just 32 x 29 3-4 x 62 1-2 and rolled through most standard doorways for storage without having to disassemble.
Producers of treadmills have had a tendency to keep making them bigger, longer and wider in recent years, while also adding lots of fancy electronics.
Those features may be fine for some, but they take up a lot of room, drive up the prices and haven’t left many good options for people with small workout spaces and-or budgets.
When it comes to walking on a treadmill 3G Cardio’s small, less expensive Lite Runner is just as good. You can also perform light jogging on it.
Unlike most treadmills priced at $1,100 or under, the 3G Cardio Lite Runner has an extremely sturdy frame and belt and powerful motor. It doesn’t stall or lag when you walk or jog on it, which is the case for most other less expensive treadmills.
If you’ve ever used a cheap treadmill and felt it lag or stall, that’s because the motor is not strong enough to support you.
The 3G Cardio Lite Runner’s 2.5 High Torque Motor is strong enough to create a consistent belt speed. The Lite Runner is specifically designed for walking, which can actually draw more amps and put more stress on a treadmill motor than running because when a person walks on a treadmill their feet remain in contact with the treadmill belt for a longer period of time than when running.
However, the 3G Cardio Lite Runner is specifically engineered with a higher torque / lower horsepower combination to ensure a smooth and consistent speed and feel on the 18 1-2 x 51 1-2 treadmill belt while walking at a lower mph.
The result is a smooth, powerful feel while walking or jogging that far exceeds similar-priced department store brands on which the user can actually feel the treadmill belt slow down and speed up on its own. When you walk at a slower speed or jog on the 3G Cardio Lite Runner, the belt speed will remain powerful and steady under your feet.
“A favorite feature on the 3G Cardio Lite Runner is the electronic incline,” Treadmillreviews.net reported. “The deck has elevation choices from 0% to 15%, and for quick adjustments there are four one-touch incline buttons on the console. The speed limit for this treadmill is 12 mph, but as mentioned above this treadmill is best for walking (jogging too). The belt motor was especially selected to outperform others at lower speeds but not so much at higher speeds. The one-touch speed buttons on the console are for 2, 4, 6 and 8 mph.”
Many people also really appreciate the smaller footprint of the 3G Cardio Lite Runner. If you just want to walk on a treadmill, or even do light jogging you don’t need a big area. Manufacturers add unneeded extra space for more than just the frame or belt size, like over-sized consoles. The reality is it just doesn’t need to be that big.
The Lite Runner can be inclined, speeds can easily be changed, there are built-in speakers that electronic devices can be hooked up to and a hand-held heart rate sensor.
3G Cardio prides itself on designing treadmills to fit a variety of needs, which are priced competitively by putting functionality over fancy electronic extras. The Lite Runner continues a tradition that has earned the company numerous Best Buy awards and 5-star ratings on amazon.com.
An outstanding warranty will cover the Lite Runner for the lifetime of the motor and frame for home use and three years for parts and one year for labor.
