Dimensions

The Sunny Health & Fitness T7614 Magnetic Treadmill has dimensions that measure up to 54 x 27 x 49.5inches. When it is folded up, the height is 52″ and the base and top are 21″ x 25″. The treadmill is based on the space-saver design which means that it can fold down easily and slide effortlessly thanks to the wheels attached to the bottom. When it folds flat, you can easily slide it under a bed or dresser and pull it out for later use. The running belt measures at 41.5” x 13.4 “, which is narrow for people who are taller than 6 feet and have a large running action.

Features

The Sunny Health & Fitness T7614 Magnetic Treadmill is a self-powered machine meaning that it does not have any motor and as a result does not require any electric outlet to operate it. The running belt will undergo motion with the momentum of your own strides, and so its speed depends entirely on the consumer’s own preferred mode of intensity. It comes preinstalled with a multi-function LCD display that can calculate goals, heart rate, speed, covered distance, time, and the number of calories burned. The display can be configured to keep repeating the readings so you can know the exact process of your workout session. The handrails of the machine are equipped with Pulse-rate monitoring grips that allow the treadmill to track the pulse and relay the information so that when you see the display, you’ll know the rate of your heartbeat. Pretty nifty, right?

Construction

The Sunny Health & Fitness T7614 Magnetic Treadmill is made of solid steel construction and is pretty light, weighing at 65.5 pounds and can support weights up to 220 lbs. It comes in sleek gray color in default mode.

Since it is an entry level treadmill, the T7614 model does not come with any motor and is manual by nature. This means that the highest speeds can be attained or mellow speeds can be controlled through the momentum of your own strides. Really, it all depends on you to be exact. Unlike other walking manual treadmills its comes with a Magnetic Tension System (MTS) control that helps stabilize the speed of the belt and enable you to walk hands free at selected tension settings. Dual 6 inches diameter flywheels and magnetic tension resistance are a stand-in in place of a motor and provide the necessary challenge you’ll need in order to walk the treadmill. The flywheels also assist in providing a smoother and more consistent workout.

The Sunny Health & Fitness T7614 Magnetic Treadmill does not include any adjustable incline but in fact comes with a fixed incline angle of 9 degrees which is roughly around a percentage of 11.9%. This aspect of the machine has both its good aspects and the bad. The good side is that with the incline, the intensity of your workout will be tougher as compared to working on a treadmill that is at surface level. On the other hand, there will be days where you’ll crave for an easier and less challenging workout but the rigidity of the incline will not allow you to make any adjustments. So know beforehand what you prioritize before you buy this machine

Pros

  • Very inexpensive
  • Space saving fold design
  • Easy to adjust
  • Pulse rate monitoring handrails
  • Magnetic Tension System provides necessary intensity for tougher workout.
  • Dual 6 inch flywheels for better experience

Cons

  • The running belt is a little short and narrow for everyone’s comfort
  • Incline is fixed

Verdict

Entry level treadmills do not get cheaper than this. With the T614 model, Sunny Health & Fitness have unleashed a very reliable exercise machine that won’t burn a hole through your pocket and will at the same time provide you with some sophisticated high-end features which surprisingly elude its tame price tag.
