The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7718 Treadmill:  Wide & Folding Flat

A low-capacity but heavy treadmill gives confidence that it is robust. The lower deck is even better for getting on and off the treadmill.

Even at high speeds, the motor is barely audible. Bright and clear display for speed, distance, time, steps, calories, and pulse. Set goals and the countdown begins.

9 interval-based preset programs.  Rare in treadmills in this price range. 9 mph speed is adequate for most runners. Options of Increasing speed gradually or steeply.

20-inch-wide track with shock absorbers: safer than most treadmills in the price range. Slip resistant handrails to hold on to in case of loss of confidence. Every 188 miles, a lubrication reminder.

A fold-flat treadmill can be pushed under a bed or stored against a wall. The handgrip heart rate monitor gives a fair idea of pulse. Can calculate BMI as well.
