Cons of the Treadmill
Not Fitted with Adjustable Cushioning

The Lontek Electric treadmill is not fitted with cushioning, which exposes users to injury.
Short Track Size

Concerning width, fitness experts state that a treadmill that has 20 inches is better for large-bodied trainees. While Lontek electric treadmill is designed for running and walking, it does not meet this requirement.
