Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill Review

For those that are looking for a budget option for a home use treadmill, there are several models available that give you good value for your money. The one we are going toWeslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill look at in this article is the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill.

If you just need a treadmill to use for regular walking sessions, or some light jogging, then the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill is an ideal option. It has a fairly small footprint, so it will not take over your entire room once it is set up and operational.

While this model does not come with a lot of the bells and whistles that you can get with a more expensive treadmill, you are not left high and dry when it comes to features. You do have a few different workout programs to use so you can vary your workouts. The G 5.9 also comes with foldaway technology, so you can fold the deck up when not in use to free up extra space in the room.

The first thing you will need to do when you take delivery of your Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill is to set it up. Fortunately this is a really easy model to set up, and even if you are doing it on your own (easily doable), it should only take you an hour or so maximum.

Specifications for the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill

Size and power of the motor

The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill runs on a 2.25 HP (1.5 continuous) Impulse™ motor. This provides plenty of power and traction if you are just going to be using this for lighter running sessions, or brisk walks. The maximum weight capacity for the G 5.9 is 250 pounds, so as long as you do not exceed this amount then you will be able to get a really good workout from this treadmill.

Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill reviewSpeed and incline

The QuickSpeed technology used on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill will increase the running speed from 0 all the way up to 10 MPH. It does this fairly quickly too, so you do not have to wait a long time to either speed up or slow down. This is plenty of speed for light exercise purposes, and you can even get up to quite a fast paced jog without maxing out the top speed.

There is a manual dual incline capability with the G 5.9, but don’t expect it to be like the ones you see on the more expensive models where you can control the incline automatically from the console while you are working out. To use the incline on the G 5.9, you need to use the purposely designed boards to prop it up at the incline angle. Nothing flash about this, but it is stable and it works.

Workout programs

There are 6 workout programs that come loaded on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill. One of the programs is a manual one, so if you prefer to work to your own specifications you can. But the other programs will focus on weight loss, endurance, heart rate and calories burned, so you do get some variety to mix up your work out sessions with.

ComfortCell cushioning

The G 5.9 uses its ComfotCell cushioning system to absorb the impact of each step and stop your feet and joints from taking too much punishment. This cushioning actually works quite well, but again this model is designed for light jogging and brisk walking, so if you are using it for that then the cushioning is very effective.

User console

The design of the console on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill is very basic. You will find it very easy to navigate, and there really isn’t too much in the way of features to complicate things anyway. There is a small blue backlit LCD display, which will give you the information on your speed, time, distance, calories burned and will let you monitor your progress throughout your workout.

The display is not very bright though, and depending on the lighting in the room that the treadmill is located in, it may be fairly difficult to read. There are two drink holders on either side of the console, and you can place your drink and MP3 player in them quite adequately.

Dimensions of the G 5.9

As the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill does not have the largest of footprints when it comes to treadmills, and it also has the ability to fold the deck away when it is not being Weslo-Cadence-G-5.9-treadmill-5aused, it is ideal for using in homes that may not have much space. You can easily store it in the corner of the room and bring it out when you want to train. These are the dimensions of the G 5.9:

  • Length = 64.5 inches
  • Width = 29 inches
  • Height = 55.5 inches
  • Weight capacity = 250 pounds

Size of the running deck

The running deck on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill measures at 16 inches wide by 50 inches long. This is a fair bit smaller that the more expensive models you can get, but this is not designed for faster sprinting and heavier training.

If you want to use it for light jogging or speed walking, then you will have enough room to train sufficiently. If you plan on using it for faster running sessions and you are a taller person, then it might not be enough room for you to run adequately.

Final thoughts on the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill

Do not expect this treadmill to compare with models that cost 4 to 5 times more than it, because it is not in that range. But this treadmill is aimed at those that want a budget option and a good quality treadmill for under $500. In this case, the G 5.9 certainly delivers.

The frame is pretty solid and stable, you will be able to work out efficiently without having to worry about the stability of the machine as it holds up very well, even for people that are of a bigger build. The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 treadmill is very reasonably priced, and you are getting a very good treadmill for the price it is currently being sold at.
