The Merit Fitness 725T Plus Treadmill is a great way to start your own in-home workout program that suits your needs and fitness level. The  725T Plus offers a spacious workout area and a top-quality 2.25-horsepower drive motor to provide comfort and smooth power at all speeds. This sturdy machine is easy to assemble. The motor and belt noise is very low. The treadmill's intuitive console controls, meanwhile, let you easily set your workout pace, from 0 to 10 miles per hour. The two-window LED display shows and tracks your time, distance, speed, calories burned, and more.

Among the seven workout programs found on the Merit Fitness 725T Plus Treadmill, you'll find weight loss, mountain and hill climbs, cardio and endurance challenges, intervals and manual functions. The treadmill also folds up neatly for easy storage when not in use. The 725T boasts a capacity of 250 pounds and carries a lifetime warranty on the frame and a two-year warranty on the motor.

Some user reviews report that packaging is not so good when the machine is shipped, thus causing damage to machine. Also the heart-beat monitor doesn't always work correctly.

Overall, the Merit Fitness 725T Plus Treadmill is a great choice for both walkers and recreational runners.  It provides smooth power at all speeds, so even heavy walkers can enjoy steady belt motion underfoot.
