Costway SuperFit 2.25HP 2 in 1 Dual Display Folding Treadmill
This design boasts foldable handrails that tuck up against the deck to store under a bed or sofa to clear up a bit of floor space as needed. Instead of mounting the screen display on a central console, your progress is shown right on the base of the deck and is able to be adjusted with remote control.
If you find that the display is hard to read, the handrails also support a media deck so you can mount your smartphone or tablet.
This feature allows you to watch Netflix, listen to podcasts or music, and even pair your device to the SuperFit app (which is free!), to track progress and stream free workout programs on and off of your treadmill.
The best part? It comes in at a super affordable price point that won’t break the bank!

The Superfit Folding Treadmill is a machine designed for users that want to fit in their steps without even leaving the house. It’s a great tool to use when you want to fit in a quick workout, but it isn’t necessarily built for advanced runners.
The 2.25 horsepower motor is only able to reach top speeds of 7 miles per hour, which translates to a little over an 8-minute mile. If you are training to achieve that elusive 6-minute mile, this machine won’t be able to keep up with you.
For casual joggers that are more concerned with distance rather than speed, this treadmill is a great choice. Many users opt for this machine to log in their steps for the day, or to go for a nice and easy tempo run.
Many users report that the motor on this design runs very quietly, even when used at higher speeds. Plus, the foldable handlebars allow users to use their treadmill with or without the handles.
If you are planning on running, I highly suggest using the handlebars to ensure that you don’t faceplant!
This treadmill may be simple, but it is built with features to provide a smooth ride. The belt is constructed with 57 layers of impact-absorbing materials to keep your gait cycle nice and bright.
The comfortable materials used for this deck feel more like running on dirt or modest trails rather than hard and unforgiving concrete. It is also composed of super grippy non-slip materials to ensure that you have stable footing from start to finish.
It’s important to note, however, that this desk is small. It measures to be just 16-inches wide and 40-inches long. When shopping around for budget-friendly treadmills, a 16-inch wide deck is fairly normal.
It’s a little narrow, but if you stand under 6 feet tall it should be wide enough to walk or run naturally. If you are over 6 feet tall, you will need to make minor adjustments to your gait cycle to avoid clipping the sides of the belt.
I was also surprised to find that this treadmill belt is only 40 inches long. Many standard running belts measure to be 48-inches long on average, making this design a little short.
While it works well for those with a short gait cycle or shorter legs, if you have long legs you will need to take smaller steps when running.
If you plan on only using this treadmill to clock in steps while walking, the size of the belt will not be an issue.
This treadmill has a few performance hiccups, but these issues may be worth it if you don’t have a lot of room in your home for a treadmill. Investing in a treadmill is a hard trigger to pull because these machines demand quite a bit of room, which can be a problem if you don’t have a lot of available space.
What I love most about this design is that the handlebars fold compactly against the running deck so that you can easily slide it under your bed or under a sofa when not in use. Plus, it only weighs in at just over 74 making it just a little bit easier to move.
When it comes to cardio equipment, there are very few options out there on the market that can be stored under your bed!
Putting together home workout equipment is a real struggle. Many machines require lengthy assemblies, and if they are assembled correctly it could potentially affect the performance and durability of your machine.
One of the things that users love most about this machine is that it comes completely assembled! Once it arrives at your door, simply pop it out of the box and you are ready to get to work!
The only assembly that is required to use this machine is affixing the handles and the media shelf to the central base. These handrails are a cinch to pop onto the central unit and take most users well under 10 minutes.
The display on this treadmill is a little bit different than your average treadmill. Instead of mounting the progress screen on the console at eye level, it is found on the base of the deck. This backlit screen displays your time, speed, distance, and calories burned.
You can use the included remote control to toggle between various screen settings, and also adjust the speed with the remote as well.
What happens if you accidentally lose your remote, you ask? If that happens, and it very well could, users can also control their treadmill with the help of the SuperFit app that is available for free from the app store. You may lose your remote control, but it is pretty unlikely that you will also lose your phone!
With so many treadmills out there on the market boasting subscription apps, the SuperFit app is like a breath of fresh air. Users can download this app for free from the google or apple app store, and it doesn’t even require users to create a profile to get started, let alone a monthly fee!
It’s important to note that the features of this app aren’t as robust as subscription apps such as Peloton or iFit, but they provide just enough to get you excited about working out.
This app works as a remote control and a progress display screen for your machine, and it also provides a workout builder, unlimited user-created workouts, as well as the ability to upload custom workouts to the database.
If you have the itch to add another monthly subscription to your life, the SuperFit app also offers an affordable monthly membership that clocks in at half of the price as iFit or Peloton. The SuperFit subscription delivers private workout sessions, and unlimited workout schedules as well as everything offered in the free app.
What I love most about the SuperFit app is that it’s a great tool to use on and off of the treadmill with plenty of workout programs. Even if you don’t have a SuperFit machine, you can still take advantage of the fitness programs, it just won’t track your progress in the app.
One of the best features of the Costway SuperFit 2.25HP 2 in 1 Dual Display Folding Treadmill is that it clocks in at a super affordable price point. If you are not only running out of room in your home gym but are also running out of funds, this treadmill is one of your very best options.
There are other more affordable treadmills out there on the market, but these designs are manually-driven belts. If you want something that utilizes a powerful motor with a low price point, this treadmill is worth checking out!
Plus, it comes in a wide variety of sharp color options that you can feel good about setting up right in your living room!
While it may not be the most powerful treadmill out there on the market, it’s a great tool to have on hand to get moving when going to the gym or running around the neighborhood isn’t an option.
It boasts a sleek design that looks great in any room, and the foldable features allow you to tuck it under a sofa or a bed when not in use.
