 Sole Fitness F63 Folding Treadmill

In today’s world, a lot of people are in search of exercise equipments that could help them achieve their fitness goals. However, not all have the allotted budget for that. Fortunately, the Sole F63 treadmill recently came out of the market and it was specifically designed for those who are trying to pinch their penny, but still aspire to get a top-quality product.

For those who are familiar with the Sole Fitness brand, they’d agree that it’s one of the brands in the fitness world that offers quality design, as well as customer satisfaction at a very affordable price. These are just some of the reasons why it has become a reputable brand for a lot of fitness enthusiasts.

Based on several Sole F63 treadmill reviews, this model is the smaller version of the F80. The sole fitness f63 folding treadmill has a smaller motor, LCD screen, track length, but it’s still packed with several workout programs, integrated speakers, and MP3 ports. Aside from its small stature, you could still say that the price range of this model is definitely a good deal, because most of the features that are present in the sole 63 aren’t usually found within this price range.

Notable Features:

Message Board Instructions
Let’s face it, a lot of treadmills appear to be quite complicated to use, that even when the description says it’s “user-friendly,” it’s hard to believe that it really is. Aside from that, constantly reaching for the user manual just to figure out how to use a certain function could be time consuming and really annoying. The end result? You’ll even lose the drive of continuing your exercise routine.

Sole is aware of this, and that’s probably the reason why they came up with a way to fix this problem– the ‘Message Board’ feature. If you want to be able to figure out something, all you have to do is press the button and the instructions would be visible on the message board display screen.

This feature is quite helpful, especially to those who aren’t familiar with how a treadmill works. This would save them a lot of time, because there’s no need to stumble upon several buttons just to use the different programs of the equipment.

Likewise, this message board also serves as the virtual manual for the user. It serves as a comprehensive guide on how you could easily use the various features of the F63.

Controls of the Handrails
The F63 Sole Treadmill has incline and speed controls on the handrails. Similarly, it also has the numeric options that are located on the console itself. Having an access to the handrail controls could make it more convenient for the user, because he’ll have the ability to change the incline or speed while performing his workout routines.

Although this isn’t an important feature, it’s something that one should consider, especially if you’re in search of a home treadmill.

Workout Programs
Based on the Sole Fitness F63 Folding Treadmill review, the F63 is considered as one of the best treadmills available in the market. Though, truth me told; back then, a lot of consumers complain about the limited features the old model has, and they’ve probably tried to improve that with this new model.

The Sole F63 manual is comprised of six programs, with two custom-made slots that are good enough, especially for beginners. However, a lot of reviewers feel that, if there would only be a room for 12-15 programs, then this treadmill would be perfect.

Calorie Goal Workouts
For those who are trying to shed off those extra pounds, then the calorie goal workout would be really helpful to you. The Sole Treadmill F63 allows its user to choose from several calorie workouts, that are effective and entertaining at the same time. Additionally, aside from that, you could also use the on-board workouts and the manual mode depending on your choice.

Keep in mind, even though most cardio workouts could be an effective way to lose weight, with the help of specially designed calorie workouts, it could make the process more convenient and effective.

High Quality Parts
Just like what we’ve mentioned earlier, the sole fitness f63 is one of the best treadmills available in the fitness world.

If you’re one of those who prefer the basics over the “extra” features, then this model is probably the one you’re looking for. Even though most professional runners aren’t satisfied with what the F63 has to offer, the beginners who are just starting to explore the world of cardio workout would think that this model could keep them well-motivated for a long period of time.

Just like most Sole treadmills, you’re going to get a set of large track rollers, advanced cushioning, and durable motors with the Sole F63.This model is pretty basic, but it could definitely get the job done.

Motors
It has a 3.0 CHP motor that’s perfect for jogging, walking, and occasional sprints. Likewise, you don’t even need to worry about the motor overheating, because it is cooled down by heavy-duty wheels. Thus, it’s going to last for a longer time, as compared to other treadmills that have the same motor. Best of all, even though it has a powerful motor, it’s still surprisingly quiet.

Track Length
As compared to your standard, folding treadmill, the Sole F63 is a little bigger. It’s 20” wide and 60” long with an incline feature that could go as much as 15%. According to some Sole F63 treadmill review, this incline feature allowed them to burn more calories, as compared to walking or jogging at zero degrees.

Cushioning
The sole fitness f63’s cushioning could lessen joint impact for as much as 40%. Thanks to it’s CushionFlex feature.

Compact Design
For those who are living in an apartment or is in search of an equipment that they could use even in a small room, then the f63 sole would be perfect for you. It could be folded in order to save space, and its unique horseshoe design could guarantee that even when folded, your equipment would still be fully protected.

Extras
Most users complain about the discomfort they feel, especially if they’ve been exercising for several hours. The sole 63 treadmill has a built-in fan that could ensure comfort, allowing the user to last longer.

Warranties
A lot of Sole F63 reviews have mentioned that the warranty features of this model are quite generous. There’s a lifetime warranty for motor and frame; 3-year warranty on the electronics, and 1-year service warranty.

What We Don’t Like:

Honestly, it’s quite difficult to find a fault on this model. However, just like any other treadmill models, this entry-level model also has a little amount of flaws. Some say that it costs more than other treadmills in the same series, and the features of the cheaper brand are slightly better. Aside from that, here are some of the drawbacks of the treadmill sole f63.

Missing Some Workouts
Overall, the sole 63 offers a good variety of workout programs; however, it seems like some of the most common and needed programs are missing from their lineup.

For instance, the sole fitness f63 doesn’t offer interval workouts, as well as preset distance workouts. It’s not really a problem, but could also be a disappointment for some, especially for those who are using a treadmill for this purpose. Nonetheless, the f63 is still a good fit, especially for the beginners.

No Shock Absorption System
A lot of treadmills have a shock absorption system, because running on a treadmill could be hard on the body. The shock absorption system is usually built into the deck and it could lessen the impact, as well as the discomfort brought by using a treadmill.

Unfortunately, this model doesn’t have any type of shock absorption system, and this could be a problem for those who are running on a regular basis.

Tracking Software
A lot of users would love to keep a record of their workout routine in order to monitor their progress. The solef63 doesn’t have this feature.

Final Verdict:

Overall, the Sole F63 treadmill is a perfect choice, especially for those who are using a treadmill to perform light to moderate workouts. It could hold as much as 325 pounds and it has a commercial-grade motor that could last for a number of years if maintained properly. This model has been considered to be very durable, yet affordable, that’s why a lot of users prefer this model from the Sole series for almost a decade now.

As for the consumer reviews, it has received a variety of opinions and rating. Most of these reviewers claim that the overall feel and construction are top-quality, but the design of the hand grips and console are quite awkward, because it’s hard to look at the LCD screen during your workout.

In the end, most of them agreed that the Sole Fitness series has created a nice treadmill that has most of the features you need from a standard treadmill. Best of all, it’s really cost effective and durable.
