If you are in the market for a reasonably priced Treadmill for home workouts, I would recommend this one. Walmart has the best price ($287) but others carry it. The weslo site has it listed for $399.

This Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill is a good value for the money. It is light and easy to fold up. It would be great for an apartment.I liked the fact that this treadmill has 6 different workout programs. This would be a good Treadmill for light to moderate workouts at home.

  1. Hi! I live with my grandma and I am in the market for a treadmill that will meet both of our needs. I love how affordable it is and the impact absorption is A MUST! I love all of the included and optional features. I was wondering though, how user friendly do you find it to be? My grandma is pretty with it but technology is not her thing so I want to make sure she could use it without me.

    1. Hi Tessa,

      Thanks for your comment. I understand that is is important to get a Treadmill that would be perfect for both you and your grandma.

      I think the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 i Treadmill is very user friendly and simple to use. The controls are basic and self explanatory. I would read over the manual once just for information. For instance, if you want to change from miles to Kilometers, you may want to refer to the manual.

      The impact absorption I think you will find acceptable. There are some videos of people actually using them on Youtube and here is the link to one: here

  2. Hi Cynthia

    I have just finished reading your review of Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill and I must say that from what you tell us, I really like the sound of this treadmill.

    Fancy having a treadmill that will take you to any part of the world! That sounds like fun to me, rather than treading a platform and wondering how much longer it going to be before finishing the planned exercise.

    Treadmills, just like Exercycles, can be boring to use. But not Weslo Cadence G 5.9i model as far as I can tell from your review. It sounds fantastic and I would like to get one for myself.

    The only concern for me would be the weight of the treadmill when it comes to folding it up. I don’t know whether I could lift 45 lbs with one hand. Perhaps I would need to find a place in my house where it could stay permanently, without needing to be folded up. What do you think about that? Or maybe only I can make that decision due to space available.

    Thanks Cynthia

    1. Hi Valerie,

      Thanks for your comment. I agree this treadmill has got a great feature to be able to see interesting parts of the world while you are using it.

      I certainly understand your concern about being able to lift 45 lbs with one hand. However, if you are able to stoop down you can use two hands. Of course, if that is also a problem, then I would recommend placing it in a room of your home where you can leave it set up.

      Thanks again and good luck on all your fitness plans.

  3. I would love to get one of these. The only problem I would have is that I have neighbors downstairs who would probably not be very happy!

    Does the machine make lots of noise? I am sure they could handle a small amount of noise at sociable times during the day, but some treadmills can be very loud and I imagine this would really get on the neighbors nerves

  5. Hi Cynthia,

    I love the review. It is absolutely stunning. I really enjoyed the reading.
    In the summer I walk a lot around my neighbourhood but in the winter I don’t do any exercises because it is mostly raining outside:( This is the reason I am looking for a great machine to be able to do some sports even if the weather is bad. This treadmill seems to be of good quality and the price is reasonable as well.
    You have written down all the information needed, so there are not questions left for me to ask anymore.
    But I do have few questions, though:)
    1) How long will it take to receive the machine?
    2) Do you ship out of US?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi, Daniella,

      Thank you for your comment. I am so pleased you enjoyed the review. I think you will be pleased with this treadmill. A treadmill is perfect in the winter for exercise when we need it the most.

      I can tell you that the shipping time will vary according to what location you are in. Of course if you live outside of the US, it will take longer. The shipping time will be given to you when you order.

      This treadmill is at a great price from Walmart and if you live outside of the US you can create a free account at http://usgobuy.com and you can buy from Walmart as well as other US stores. There is however a fee involved and you can check how much on their website.

      Thank you again Daniella and I wish you well on your exercise fitness plan.

  6. Hello,
    thanks for sharing a very interesting article about Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill Review. I have to admit, you really explain in details everything we need to know about this product. To me, price it reasonable and I will definitely consider to get one because it would be great for me and my family. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Karlo,

      Thanks for your comment. Walking is great way to get and stay in shape. This easy use and store treadmill is convenient.

      If you get the Cadence G 5.9i let me know your experience.

      Happy walking!

  7. Hi,
    I am strongly considering purchasing the Weslo Cadence G 5.9i for my adult daughter and I. We both suffer with multiple, inflammatory auto-immune disorders that impact out joints. I understand the treadmill will ship from Walmart and require on-site assembly. Do you know what the weight would be for the heaviest part of the machine? I’m assuming that would be the walking surface. We plan to keep it in a spare room on the second floor and that would require us to carry the pieces up a flight of steps. Also, I am wondering if assembly is simple enough for 2 women to figure out?!! Each of our rheumatologists have recommended we start a walking program to combat the pain that comes with our medical conditions. Your response is appreciated.

    1. Sorry! One more question – is the walking surface flat / level with the option of 1 incline – or – is the surface always at an incline with 2 different incline height options? I’ve read that a 3% incline has proven to be beneficial in reducing shock to legs / knees by 24%, but more than a 3% incline can have the reverse effect and increase stress on the the joints.
      Again, thanks for your feedback!

      1. Hi Jody,
        Thanks for the question about the incline. The incline has 2 different levels. The first level would probably be the best for reducing joint shock level. It also has “comfort cell cushioning” for shock absorption.
        Please don’t hesitate if you have any other questions. I applaud you and your daughter for beginning a walking program!

    2. Hi Jodi,
      Thanks so much for your comment.
      The recommendation for the Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill assembly is that you should be able to lift 45lbs. Also they also recommend that two people do it together and that one person should be able to bend.
      The instructions that come with it should be clear enough that you and your daughter can put it together pretty easy.
      Thanks again and please contact me if you need anything else or if you have any questions.

      1. I ordered the older model G5.9 and it will be delivered by Amazon in 2 days. I’ve enlisted the help of some young neighbors to help us get it up a flight of stairs. Looking forward to getting some winter walking in!
        Thanks for your responses.

  8. I had a Weslo treadmill in the past I was very pleased with. Unfortunately, when we moved long distance it did not make the move with us due to space. I wanted to see if they are as good as they use to be. This review makes me think it still makes a smart bran to invest in. I like the idea of the ifit even if it is an additional cost. Being able to be in different places without actually leaving the house would be more motivated to use the treadmill. If I decide to stop using the ifit app though will it affect how my treadmill runs?
    Thank you for your help.

    1. Hi Christina,
      Thanks so much for your comment. I love the Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill for a home treadmill. It easily just folds out of the way. I think you would enjoy not having to leave the house especially if the weather is bad outside. Although, if you did not want to use the IFIT App, you don’t have to. It shouldn’t affect your treadmill runs at all.
