The 3G Cardio Company based out of Phoenix, Arizona, has developed the ideal treadmill for small spaces.
If you want to exercise in a small room in your house, apartment, office, garage, RV, yacht or other spot, check out the 3G Cardio Lite Runner Treadmill (MSRP $1,499, introductory special sale price $999).
3G Cardio’s “Mighty Mini” is one of the best treadmills priced under $1,100 you’ll find anywhere.
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.
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 3G Cardio Lite Runner measures just 67 inches (length) x 29 3-4 (width) x 52 1-2 (height). It an 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.
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.
