The H.B.S Portable Folding Electric Treadmill is a good entry-level treadmill for someone looking to get a little more active. This affordable treadmill has everything that you’ll need to start getting a little more exercise in your life for a very reasonable price.
This treadmill can provide speed up to 10 km/hr; that is about 6 mph. This is a great speed to get a good workout through walking or jogging. Most power walkers train at speeds between 4.5 to 5.5 mph. The speed can be adjusted incrementally or with quick, one-touch buttons at settings of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 km/hr. Training at these paces will help enhance your weight loss and cardiovascular improvement. The deck on this treadmill also absorbs a lot of the impact to reduce stress on your joints. The 500W motor also operates very quietly so you can enjoy background music or watch your favorite television show while exercising.
Another great design feature with this H.B.S. Portable Folding Treadmill is that it is foldable. So, when you’re done exercising, you can easily fold this treadmill to save your valuable floor space. It’s great for apartment living or for someone who just doesn’t have a lot of room for exercise equipment.

What We Love About the H.B.S Portable Folding Electric Running Machine Motorized Treadmill:
If you’re looking at entry-level, budget-friendly motorized treadmill, this is one of the least expensive that you’re going to find. At under $200, there aren’t that many motorized treadmills available. We reviewed one other treadmill in this price range, the Best Choice 500W Portable Electric Motorized Treadmill. Both of these treadmills are similar in design and features, but H.B.S provides it at a slightly better cost. This treadmill will get you up to a top speed of 6 mph, which can get you up to a nice jogging speed. It also has a basic console to track your exercise statistics. In all, it is a good treadmill for a very reasonable price.
What Isn’t So Great:
The H.B.S. Portable Folding Electric Running Machine Motorized Treadmill isn’t exactly designed with a runner in mind. The main design flaw for running is the overall size of the belt. The running surface on this treadmill is only 13.5”x39.75”. This is really narrow and very short. At this size, there is no possible way that you can use a full running stride on this treadmill. But even that doesn’t matter when the top speed of the treadmill is only 6 mph. This is a decent jogging speed, but it’s low for a running speed. So, we wouldn’t recommend this treadmill for a runner, but its motor is good enough to provide an enjoyable walking or jogging experience.
Final Word on the H.B.S Portable Folding Electric Running Machine Motorized Treadmill:
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, but you still want a motorized treadmill, the H.B.S Portable Folding Electric Running Machine Motorized Treadmill is one of only a few choices. The 500W motor on this treadmill can get you up to 6 mph, which is good for walking and jogging. However, at this speed and with a small belt surface, this isn’t exactly a treadmill built for a runner. But, if you’re just getting started and looking to get a little exercise in your life, this is a good choice.
