The Space Savers

Space in short supply? These treadmills are for you! Our Treadpads can be used with or without handles, so you can easily store them away under a bed or in a closet. They are also great to use while working from home – rack up those steps while you work!


Sleek Stride Smart Compact Auto Incline Treadpad (SF-T722069)

This treadmill is built to be a reliable walking treadmill that allows you to step while you work or check in for a cozy cardio session if you aren’t up for a big workout. This treadmill is tiny but mighty, with the versatility to add incline to your workout and log your miles. The perfect addition to a compact home gym!


Pacer Smart Compact Auto Incline Treadpad (SF-T722076)

This Treadpad includes a lot of the same benefits of the Sleek Stride Treadpad; however, if you’re looking for a little extra stability this one’s for you! The Pacer incorporates the use of a foldable handle for extra support while you walk. Additionally, while the handle is folded out, you can increase your speed up to 6 mph, effectively using this equipment as both a walking and running treadmill. If you enjoy incorporating both walking and running into your routine, this is a great option.


The Minimalists

If you are in the market for a no-frills treadmill that gets the job done, stop here! These robust treadmills embrace simplicity and the effectiveness of a classic treadmill. What’s more, both treadmills boast Smart capabilities, meaning they can connect to our SunnyFit® workout app!

The Do-it-Yourself

A manual treadmill is an excellent way to change up your walking or running session. This machine is the closest you can get to mimicking the way your body moves when walking or running outside. Not to mention, you will expend more energy while using a manual machine because it’s powered by you and your muscles!

Our tried-and-true manual treadmill for good reason. This model will challenge your limits! Don’t be fooled by the fact that it’s a walking-only treadmill – its fixed incline will deliver quite the workout in a short time span. You can also easily fold your treadmill up and store it out of the way if you are looking for something that saves space. At an affordable price point, this treadmill delivers on all counts.
