Exerpeutic have been churning out decent entry level treadmills for quite some time now. And with the release of the TF1000 model, they continue their good form by providing reliable exercise machines. Before we indulge ourselves in the details of this treadmill, it needs to be said that with its maximum speed of 4 mph it can only support walking exercises so runners beware if you’re looking for a treadmill which you can use for rigorous running exercises. Anyways, because of its unique nature, the treadmill is gloriously named the ‘Walk to Fitness’ model. In the following article we will take a look at just what Exerpeutic are offering with the TF1000 machine.
The Exerpeutic TF1000 Ultra High Capacity Fitness Treadmill has dimensions amounting to 51.2 inches of length, 32 inches of width, and 63 inches of height respectively.

Construction & Motor
The Exerpeutic TF1000 Ultra High Capacity Fitness Treadmill weighs 120 pounds is solidly built. It has a reinforced frame capable of supporting a mind whopping 400 pounds. This makes the machine perfect to support people of varying weight types. The frame is solid steel and durable. There are also wide side rails that act as a necessary foot platforms A 1.5 HP high torque motor is responsible for running the belt over the rollers. The size and power of the motor is optimal enough to aid you in your brisk walking. Its small size also assures that the motor will not be noisy so you won’t have to turn the TV/music volume louder nor will you need to worry about annoying others in the housee. The Exerpeutic TF1000 Ultra High Capacity Fitness Treadmill features two incline settings which is good enough to increase the intensity of your workout. Do note though that the incline can not be adjusted from the control panel and is in fact manual in nature. So you’ll have to get off the treadmill and manually alter its incline every time you feel the necessity to do so. 18 inch long handrails provide double the length of normal handrails which grant you a firm and comfortable grip on the treadmill’s handles which will aid you in remaining balanced as you exercise. A shock absorption cushioning deck provides the right amount of support to absorb the impact of your strides and add less strain on your feet, ankles, knees and hips. This also helps to make the recovery of the muscles run faster.
The Exerpeutic TF1000 Ultra High Capacity Fitness Treadmill is a moderately good treadmill with its fair share of flaws. It doesn’t try to fool anyone by overselling its purpose, remember that Exerpeutic themselves advertise this machine as one suited only to walking. So this limits the demograph they are targeting in the market so those who are adamant on running will be a little disappointed to know that the TF1000 model does not accommodate their needs and restless runner’s legs. But since this is Exerpeutic, a trusted giant of fitness machines, there need to be no second doubts about the extent of its quality which will undoubtedly be high. Personally we love this machine. We think it’s the best option out there if you’re a walker looking to stock your house with a very reliable treadmill. So go for it!
