Egofit M2 is equipped with a 3.0 HP heavy duty motor which performs quietly regardless of any level of speed. It can work continuously for hours and provides you with a top speed of 7.5 mph. It’s 43.5” L x 16.6” W running track with six absorbers on each side allows you to workout intensely without worring about the potential for damage to knees, ankles, and hips that can result from long-term useage.

But there’s more to this under desk treadmill that meets the eye. The M2 also has the ability to vibrate. This unusual feature is designed to help you get more out of your workouts as the vibration plate helps to shake away excess fat, especially around the belly area. Since the vibration plate offers a relatively passive way to work out, it’s a great addition to a machine designed to be used at work.

Another unusual and useful feature of the Egofit M2 is the auto lubrication feature. This treadmill lubricates itself, and all you need to do is to pour some lubricant into a discreet hole on the side of the treadmill whenever the machine runs low. It’s a lot less work than doing it the old-fashioned way.

Lastly, M2 comes pre-assembled with a manual, remote controller, lubricant oil and required set of tools for maintenance over time. If you’re looking for a way to fit more exercise into your day, this unique treadmill could be just what you need.

FeaturesSpecifications
  • Foldable Handrail

If you want a handrail, you’ve got it. If you don’t, the handrail on the Egofit M2 folds away so that this treadmill can be placed under a desk or put away for easy storage. This folding handrail gives you the best of both worlds and helps to make the M2 the versatile treadmill that it is.

  • Quiet Motor

A 3 HP motor is a powerful thing. But don’t worry. This motor is designed to run smoothly and quietly so that you can get some work done while the treadmill is in operation, but it has all the power you need for your workouts.

  • Display Screen

The LED screen displays your real-time workout stats such as speed, distance traveled, and calories burned. Thereby, provides you with an excellent way to keep yourself motivated, as you can see the progress that you are making with your workouts. It’s also useful if you want to train yourself to reach a specific target, such as the number of miles walked in a day.

  • Remote Control

The Egofit M2’s console sits on the deck of the treadmill itself, but thanks to the remote control, you don’t need to bend down and press buttons.

The treadmill can be controlled easily through remote in a very convenient and easy way. This allows you to adjust the speed, vibration, and turn the treadmill on/ off without touching the buttons on the console.

  • Shock Absorption System

The shock absorption system of M2 consists of six shock absorbers over the two sides that do a great job of cushioning the impact of each footfall. This is especially useful for those suffering from joint injuries, as it’s much easier on the body than walking outside. It also means you can exercise for longer with less fatigue as compared to running outside on hard asphalt.

  • Vibration Platform

With a whopping 50 different levels of vibration, the M2’s vibration platform offers an additional way to burn calories besides simply walking or jogging on the treadmill. Once you’ve had enough of walking/ jogging, you can let the plate work its magic to shake those pounds away. This is especially effective on fat in stubborn areas like the abdomen, which can be hard to shed by walking or jogging alone.

Once you get used to the sensation, it’s a very useful addition to have, especially in a treadmill that is designed to be used in conjunction with a desk. You can easily use the vibration plate while you work to add value to your workouts. You’ll reach your fitness goals faster with the additional help of the vibration feature.

  • Auto Lubrication

Anyone who has had to lubricate a treadmill in the past knows what a pain it can be. As most of the traditional treadmills require you to use an Allen key or screwdriver to loosen the belt, lubricate underneath and then re-tighten the belt before running for a while to spread the lubricant properly. This is one chore you can forget about with the Egofit M2.

The auto lubrication system makes maintenance of this machine a breeze. Simply pour some lubricant into a hole provided on the side of the treadmill whenever the machine runs low. The system will lubricate the electric treadmill, including the vibration trainer, automatically.

Final Verdict: Egofit M2 Treadmill

Check Customers Review

The Egofit M2 has many of the features you would want in a treadmill. A handrail to provide you support whenever required, a powerful yet quiet motor for a smooth workout experience, excellent shock absorption system to prevent injury, etc.

But it’s the added extras that make this treadmill unique. Its ability to be used under a standing desk makes it an excellent choice for people who want to get more exercise but don’t know where to find the time. And while it takes some getting used to at first, the vibration plate is a smart feature that allows for additional fat burning for minimal effort.

Plus, the extra features like remote control option, foldable handrail to provide support when required, and auto lubrication system aren’t normally found on most of the under desk treadmills at such price range.

All in all, the Egofit M2 treadmill offers a perfect way to get more exercise while working and thereby ensures that you do not become the victim of a sedentary lifestyle. It’s a win-win.

What Do We like?

  • Foldable Handrail.
  • Powerful & quiet motor.
  • Double layered slippery-proof running belt.
  • High-speed limit (when compared to other under desk treadmills).
  • Vibration Platform.
  • Shock Absorption System.
  • Auto lubrication system.
  • Pretty good warranty coverage.Reasonable price.

What We Don’t Like?

  • No Incline.
  • No heart-rate monitor.
  • Small running area (Not suitable for people over 6 feet tall).

Conclusion

The Egofit M2 isn’t like other treadmills. Its design makes it perfect for use in an office environment, and it’s in this setting that the machine’s features really shine.

This isn’t a gym treadmill. It’s not fast enough or big enough for those who want to rigorously train for intense running. And the lack of an incline makes the workout it offers less intense than it might otherwise be.

But you don’t want to be sprinting at your desk, do you? You certainly don’t want to be sweating in your office clothes. The Egofit is designed to allow you to get exercise while at work, and for that use, it’s perfect. And while the vibration plate may feel a little strange at first, it’s a great feature to have, allowing you to burn fat away quicker. For a treadmill you can use while you work, this machine is hard to beat.
