As the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill is sold within a very affordable price range, certain aspects of the quality of the machine does suffer:
- The standard size of a walking/running area is 20 in. x 60 in. The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill’s walking area is only 16 inches by 50 inches. That’s a big chunk of space lost for users who need that extra space for better results.
- The motor can be loud over a short period of time, and the belt does slip, and needs to be constantly realigned.
- Aside from problems with the belt and motor, the cushioning system isn’t as friendly to the joints as expected. Hence, this machine is better off as a “walking buddy”, instead of a “running coach/trainer”.
- The two-level manual incline does not provide that much variety in workouts either. You’d have to stop in the middle of your session, and manually adjust the incline for a somewhat steeper walk.
The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill offers basic exercise programs for people who prefer brisk workouts without having to spend much money on gym membership or higher-priced exercise machines.
