Setting up the treadmill was simple using the instructions. It is very clear and easy to use. You have many walking speeds and can run at your own pace. It has many functions and set workouts including incline up to level 10, pulse reading, safety attachment. You can walk or jog at your own pace. However, there is nowhere to place a book or tablet to use while I workout. I often use the treadmill just walking without listening or watching anything, but I do enjoy watching Netflix or reading a chapter or two while walking.
It is easy to set up as it folds, and is on wheels, so it's maneuverable. I just leave it set up under normal conditions, so this isn't really a major issue for me. Very adjustable for all levels of aerobic exercise. Also, it monitors calories burned, heart rate (pulse), in addition to miles and speed. I really like that I can keep track of so many variables during my daily workouts. Wish it was not quite so heavy. It takes up a lot of space, even when it is folded for temporary storage. This was really an issue when I was relocating to a new state, and had to back it up for transport in a moving van. But I managed anyway.
I like that I am able to adjust not only the speed but the incline on it as well. It also measures my heart rate and tells me how many calories I have burned and the distance that I have gone. I am also able to do a preset workout on it. It is super easy to use. Plug it in and go. It does have an energy stop that will stop the machine as soon as people pull on it which is handy in case of an emergency. There is nothing that I dislike about the treadmill other than the price. It was a bit expensive but it was still worth the cost. I am glad that I purchased it and have it available to use in my home any time that I want or need. It is a fantastic product and I could not be happier about it.
Once we bought it and got it home it was very difficult to get set up mainly because it is so big and heavy. If I could change anything it would be the weight! If possible it would be nice to have something lighter and easier to move. I would also change the pulse meter to make it wireless. It keeps falling off. But after finally getting it set up all we had to do was plug it in. All the programs were nice and we are able to customize our own workout plan. Choosing the workout you want is simple and navigation is good. I like the incline that is adjustable and the different levels of exercise that are programmed in it that allow for different levels of exercise. The fan that is built in is also nice as well as the ability to link with my phone/watch to track my exercise. Overall I do like the equipment.
The original setting up the treadmill took several hours and was difficult as I bought it online and had to put it together myself. In everyday use it can fold up or down for a little more space but I leave mine folded down all the time. To start a workout simply press go in your speed and you're all set. It has 10 speeds and 10 incline settings, has heart rate monitoring, a large digital display, and about 8 pre programmed workout settings. However, the pre programmed work out settings are very limiting and not always exactly what I'm looking for, there are no warmup or cool down functions and display resets after a certain amount of time.

I love my Gold's Gym treadmill! I got the Trainer 720 model after reading review extensively online. This treadmill has the perfect size running area and an awesome joint protection in the Airstride Cushioning. I also like the pulse rate monitors located in the grip and the availability of 18 programmable profiles. I found the treadmill to be exceedingly easy to set up. The foldability has been an awesome feature in our workout room that doubles as a guest suite. The treadmill even fits under the spare bed when it's not in use! The setup of the profiles took a bit more time but the manual is thorough and I found the Gold's Gym customer service to be very helpful!
But while I am very pleased with this treadmill purchase, I have come across a couple of issues that were minor to me. First, the device connectivity is antiquated and, frankly, didn't work well at its intended job. Second, while I expected a little less stability from a model of folding treadmill, the reality took a little getting used to. It isn't anything that feels unsafe though, just different.
My Gold's Gym treadmill is extremely easy to use. Basically just a push of a button and I'm up and running in no time. I leave it sitting in my room, so I don't have to mess with putting it up and out of the way. I like that I can adjust the speed and also, there is an incline feature which allows me to change how effective the workout is. I like the burn I feel in my legs after using the machine. However, I would improve how wide the treadmill is. It is not wide enough for my liking. Sometimes I find myself stepping on the sides of the machine while running.
A Gold's Gym treadmill allows me to elevate the incline and adjust speed easily. It allows me to create my own workout or do one of the already created workouts. It was really easy to set up and operate. It is easy to understand, and I never have any difficulties using it. However, I wish the screen would be more digital instead of so plain. The speakers on the treadmill work but they are not very loud and could be louder. It is hard to hear over the noise of the treadmill.
