The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 runs on a 2.25 CHP Mach Z motor, which brings the machine up to speeds of 10 MPH. For more intense workouts, two incline positions are available to be set and adjusted manually.

The running belt on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 measures only 15” x 50” in order to conform to its space saving declaration. Coupled with lightweight foldability, the small size makes this treadmill easy to fit into any room and store. However, the small running belt limits the strides of users of all sizes and is impossible to run on if you are tall. In addition, the rollers underneath this belt are known to cause noise-related issues at higher speeds.

With that being said, despite its littler size, this treadmill has an advertised weight limit of 250 lbs, while the user manual sets this figure at 275 lbs. The track is also fitted with Comfort Cell cushioning to reduce impact and absorb stress, so your joints go pain-free for longer.  


There are minimal accompanying accessories with this treadmill. The main one is a blue-tinted LCD priority display console that tracks, shows, and shuffles between speed, time, distance and calories burned. You can also track your pulse by placing a thumb on the Easy Pulse sensor that has been fitted into the console.

In addition, the console has six built-in workout applications, divided into ones focused on weight loss and ones designed for intensity training. Each exercise plan was expertly created by a certified personal trainer, ensuring you get the most out of your workouts!


  • The workout programs on the console have been designed by certified personal trainers who are experts in their field, which guarantees that you will see good results if you follow the programs they came up with.
  • Space-saving features mean that this treadmill can really fit into any room regardless of size.
  • This treadmill comes at a reasonable and affordable price, but with enough features to promise value for money.


  • The treadmill is known to make a significant amount of noise, especially at higher speeds. This may be annoying to some, and may also be a sign of poor workmanship or design.
  • The incredibly small running belt cannot be used by those above a certain height, and it may even limit the stride of shorter users as well. In addition, this means that it might not be possible to run on this treadmill at all.
  • No extra accessories for convenience or entertainment are included with this treadmill, as it is simply a basic entry-level one with no bells or whistles.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How simple or complicated is assembly?

Assembly of this treadmill is fairly straightforward and will only take around 30 minutes. The treadmill comes with all the screws it needs as well as two L wrenches. It is worth noting that you will require a Philips screwdriver to complete assembly.

2. Can the treadmill be plugged directly into an electrical outlet?

Yes. However, the user manual that comes with the treadmill does suggest that you use a surge protector.

3. Does the low price affect the quality of the materials used?

Simply put, in order for the product to be more affordable, the materials used are, naturally, more inexpensive. Despite the cheaper materials, you can have confidence in the build of this treadmill as it is manufactured by Icon Health and Fitness, which is known for its excellent engineering. With that being said, experienced treadmill users may notice that in some areas – like in the motor – the cheaper build results in faster wear and tear. But with regular maintenance and tightening, the treadmill will hold up just fine.


This treadmill is one of the bestselling within its price point, and even on the market, and it has received countless excellent reviews. Its low cost but high performance promises a good series of workouts and make it a top choice for many beginners to the fitness world.  

This treadmill is not meant for highly experienced runners, or for those who are aiming to broaden already knowledgeable workout horizons. It also definitely is not meant for tall users with long stride lengths. But overall, this treadmill cannot lose, as it is an easy-to-use, simple, and highly functional treadmill that will fit easily into any corner of your home and help up your fitness game.
