A private home gym is a dream for anyone who wants to get in shape—you can work out whenever you want, you'll avoid germs, and you don't need to deal with those onerous fitness club contracts. But the truth is, few people have space in the house for all the workout equipment they'll need—let alone a bulky treadmill. The foldable LifePro Electrostride Compact Folding Treadmill tries to solve that issue by going from a big piece of equipment to a slender 5.5-inch flat board for easy storage.

The LifePro Electrostride competes right alongside standard treadmills with 36 workout presets, three manual training programs, and Bluetooth connectivity to any of your fitness apps. The high-end motor will also carry up to 198 pounds of weight to as fast as 8.7 mph with a body mass index calculator to boot. And when you're done, you can just fold it flat and stash it away.


The LifePro Electrostride Compact Folding Treadmill earned an average 4.7-star rating from Amazon reviewers, with one saying, “It’s sleek and folds flat enough to store under your bed or behind a door. I like how simple it was to set up… I can’t wait to use it even more.”

You can find the Lifepro Electrostride Compact Folding Treadmill today for $500.
