How To Fold Away Your Gold Treadmill

Even though the gold treadmill isn’t marketed as a fully folding treadmill, as with the Easy Fold Treadmill, this running machine can be folded up when not in use. This is great news for those seeking more variety with their runs and more intense usage. In this video, Roger is shown folding the machine and talking you through each step:

To Store 

1. Ensure that the treadmill is not plugged in.

2. Bend your knees and lift up the treadmill from the front of the machine (with two hands or two people if you have back or knee issues).

3. Lift up the machine and you will hear the system ‘click’ into place – don’t try to lift or push the running belt further.

4. Store, as required.

To Use

1. To assemble the treadmill for use after having been stored, Roger shows customers how to push on the yellow-striped under bar with their foot and then release.

2. Do not force the machine as it will automatically descend into place.

3. This is quite peaceful to watch!

4. Once it reaches the bottom you can plug it in and off you go!
