Get a great walking, jogging or running workout at home with the Stamina Avari Magnetic Treadmill. Treadmills are the most used of all exercise equipment for burning calories, toning and staying in shape.

What We Love About the Avari Magnetic Treadmill:
The Stamina Avari Magnetic Treadmill has a strong steel tube frame and dual weighted flywheel that keep it well grounded even though its total weight is 60 lbs. Besides a solid construction, it is also designed to be folded quickly for space-saving storage. This is great for people with minimal space for exercise equipment or for apartment/condo living. This treadmill folds down to 20” so it can easily be stuck in a closet or under a bed.
What Isn’t So Great:
The biggest downfall of the Stamina Avari Magnetic Treadmill has to be the running surface for a few reasons. First, and foremost, calling it a running surface is a bit of a stretch at 43”. At this length, the Avari Magnetic Treadmill will be best used for walking and light jogging. A run stride will have to be extremely restricted to stay on this treadmill. There are also quite a few complaints with belt slippage and maintenance for this treadmill. It seems to be a pretty common issue. The final quirk with the running surface is that the 8 degree incline is fixed and cannot be adjusted. If this something you’re not used to, you may not like it.
The Stamina Avari Magnetic Treadmill retails for around $300, but you can usually find it cheaper than that online. Even so, this is pretty expensive for a manual treadmill. Other manual treadmills can cost half of the price. You can even find a few treadmills with motors in the same price range as the Avari Magnetic Treadmill. If that’s something you’d be interested in, check out our reviews of the Confident Fitness Power Trac Pro Motorized Treadmill or Best Choice 500w Portable Folding Electric Motorized Treadmill.
Final Word on the Stamina Avari Magnetic Treadmill:
The price of the Stamina Avari Magnetic Treadmill is a little steep for a manual treadmill. At this higher price, you will get a well built, solid treadmill though. In our opinion, this treadmill is made for walkers and joggers. Running on the treadmill is going to be near impossible even if you are a shorter user. But, if all you need is a walking/light jogging treadmill and you don’t mind a little maintenance upkeep, this treadmill will definitely work for you.
