Are you looking for one piece of fitness equipment that can get you fit while training at home? Bodycraft Spacewalker is a simple, light and multi-functional treadmill that is designed to take little room but provides all the benefits of a treadmill desk. It’s a good choice for an apartment or an office.
It can be folded and used as a workstation as well. These few extra perks that make it stand out from the competition.
But, the compact design has its negatives such as the limited walking area or the lack of incline.
In this review, we’ll examine its features so that you can see whether it suits your needs and desires.
- Folding and space saver design
- Looks great as a furniture
- Easy usage
- Treadmill desk
- Safe and comfortable walking area
- Fully assembled
- Weak motor, only good for walking
- Limited treadmill belt in size
- No inbuilt training programs
- No incline/decline settings
Bodycraft Spacewalker Compact Folding Treadmill Features
The main feature of the Spacewalker compact treadmill is performing low-intensity cardio. The treadmill comes with a 1.0 hp motor which is quite weak compared to other equipment. And, some users complain about the weakening motor after using it for some months so they have to switch to a faster speed.
The speed range is from 0.5-4 mph, so we can have brisk walking. However, at a higher speed, the machine is quite loud.
To sum up, such a motor is enough for walking and for beginners.
Maximum User Weight
Although it takes little space and can be folded when you’re finished with training, it doesn’t make it any less effective or durable. It is designed to support usage by a 300 lbs person. That is pretty good and heavier users don’t complain about anything.
It also has various display features that are available with regular treadmills. Those include speed, time, distance and pulse readout. The display features an easy to read bright red LED light.
The buttons on the panel are easy to use and straightforward. You can quickly modify the speed or switch off/on the treadmill.
The walking area is 15″W x 39″L which is enough for an average height user, but taller people may find it limited.
The belt comes with a shock absorption cushioning that makes even the long walks safe and comfortable for the joints of the lower body. The mechanism of the belt doesn’t require serious maintenance.
But, we can’t choose from incline or decline angles to add additional resistance to our steps.
The Bodycraft spacewalker walking desk treadmill doesn’t come with any inbuilt programs. The only way to mix up the workout routine is to switch the speed. This way, we can have low-intensity interval training instead of walking at the same pace.
This treadmill isn’t made for serious workouts, but to “do something” instead of sitting all day long. Light walking while watching TV or do office work is far better than pushing the chair with our buttocks.
You can place a laptop on the upright table and get to work while burning off calories at the same time. This is an excellent feature that has the potential to increase your work productivity while you’re getting lean and mean at the same time.
When folded, this Bodycraft walking treadmill can be put on the side and used as a bench or a table, which is great if you want to perform other exercises with it as well. It has safety locks that keep it firmly stuck to the ground, so you don’t have to worry about it moving while using it. It has a nice design that makes it nice furniture.
The folded size is – 11″L x 22″W x 45″H
Thanks to the carrying wheels it’s quite easy to relocate as well.
The workstation isn’t as large as a typical standing desk but still provides enough from for a book and few office stuff. You can also place a tablet in a holder in case you want to watch something.
The Bodycarft Spacewalker Treadmill is a compact machine, so if you have a large laptop or need a lot of things for your work, the size of the workstation may not be enough. Though, for simple a treadmill desk, it works.
If you are searching for a more sturdy and bigger machine, you’d better look around other under the desk treadmills here.
