The Sole F63 Folding Treadmill – Great Entry Level Model

The Sole F63 folding treadmill improves upon the popular earlier version with a few upgrades for new year while keeping the durability and quiet performance that it's always been famous for.

The Machine

For the new model year, Sole has tweaked some of its most popular treadmill models, including some improvements to one of its most popular models, the F63. This is a truly impressive machine that lists for $1899, but sells direct on the company website for less than $1000, including delivery.

The delivery costs alone will save you anywhere from $200 to $300. The Sole F63 folding treadmill has many of the same features as older models with a few notable improvements, including larger, 2.5" rollers to improve the life of the belt, slightly longer overall length in order to accommodate a 5" longer running surface, greater speed and Bluetooth capability.

The Buzz

Sole Fitness F63 Treadmill Console

Sometimes a company shouldn't mess with something that's already a success, but in this case, Sole seems to have improved on some already stellar specs. Runners are unanimous in their praise of the running surface, which is a full 5" longer on the Sole F63 folding treadmill for the new year.

The company has also improved the speed range, which can now top out at a full 12 miles per hour as opposed to earlier models that could only reach 10 mph.

You get a strong, yet quiet 3.0 CHP motor, which is very capable and delivers high level performance.

Another welcome change on the Sole F63 is Bluetooth technology that allows you to track your workout results on the Sole App or transfer your workout information to your favorite fitness apps.  

One of the complaints users have always had about Sole is their lack of tracking/ they're starting to introduce features like Bluetooth to answer the complaints.

A few features haven't changed on the Sole F63 treadmill, which is a good thing. Why mess with success? Owner reviews continue to praise the quick speed and incline adjustment buttons that are located along the sides of the console so you can shift without breaking stride.

Any downsides? Not really, especially at this price.  The 20" width can accommodate most users, but if you think you might not a little more width, take a look at the up-level F65 model, which is 22" wide and will also give you a stronger motor and larger display, or the F80 treadmill which is a step above the F65.

What We Say About the F63

There simply isn't a better brand out there offering a top quality treadmill for less than $1000. Sole's industrial grade motors and welded steel frames can take an incredible beating and still outperform many models at a higher price point.

The oversized rollers and all steel flywheels create virtually no vibration and give you whisper-soft performance so that you can exercise any time of day or night without worrying about the noise bothering the neighbors.

The Sole F63 folding treadmill is going to quickly establish itself in treadmill reviews as the ideal $1000 machine, and we couldn't agree more.

If you want a little more treadmill, check out the F65 and F80 as well.  You really can't go wrong with any of the Sole Fitness treadmills.
