80i Fold Flat Treadmill Review is Live!

Small, but mighty machine proves good things can come in small packages

For certain consumers, the 3G Cardio 80i Fold Flat Treadmill is a highly recommended machine.

Despite being a small, fold flat unit (81 inches x 36 width, x 11 height) and priced at just $1,599, it has one of the best feeling treadmill deck suspensions on the market.

This small wonder, which can fold to just 9.75 inches and be stored under a bed, also boasts the most accurate MPH and least amount of “speed loss” for any treadmill we tested.

It’s ideal for walking and light running. The dual folding feature – flat or upright – is very unique. The warranty and customer service from 3G Cardio is as good as it gets.

Add it all up and the 3G Cardio 80i Fold Flat Treadmill scored a 91 overall Big Guy rating, proving good things can come in small packages.

“The 3G 80i is a good, basic treadmill,” said “Big” Mike Sullivan, the 6-foot-4, 298-pound spokesperson for the seven-member “Big Guy” review team. “It’s quiet and surprisingly smooth.

“It’s pretty soft to run on, but it’s not bouncy.”

The 3G 80i did wobble some when Big Mike ran on it, but part of that is due to his size the machines fold flat features. He noticed no issues walking and some of our lighter reviewers felt it was good to run hard on.

The machine has a very basic upper display and clunky program operations for anything other than a manual program.

Some people don’t want to pay for a monthly treadmill video subscription fee, so if that’s something you want to avoid the 3G 80i console will be fine.

“Not everyone wants to pay extra for a (subscription fee interactive) run with the guy in Rome,” Big Mike deadpanned. “For what it is, a small, sturdy treadmill that will fit into tight spaces and has excellent customer service and warranty, I recommend this treadmill as a good buy.”

Big Guy Treadmill Reviews are unique in the fitness industry.

Our reviews are just what the name states, a bunch of big guys (200 pounds or more) with lots of experience in the fitness industry testing treadmills.

After putting in countless hours running and walking on many of the leading treadmill brands and then logging the information, the 2022 Big Guy Treadmill Awards and scores were tabulated.

Peloton Treadmill Review is Live!

Big Guy Treadmill Review tested leading brands such as Life Fitness, 3G Cardio, Peloton, Bowflex, NordicTrack, OMA and more.

And, we had a big guy play the leading role: 6-foot-4, 298-pound Big “Mike” Sullivan.

Most review sites don’t take into account how a treadmill will hold up when used by a big person. Not all of us weigh under two bills, aka 200 pounds.

Big Guy Treadmill Review did the rankings the right way. We spent about $20,000 on paying seven independent researchers, products, lighting, equipment, etc., to do a truly legitimate review of the leading brands.

If a treadmill can pass Big Mike and his team’s tests for quality, value and, of course, durability then it should be good enough for most everyone else, too. And last a long time.
