What are people saying about Sole F63? Let’s find out:
One Mr. Weston Olsen says, “This treadmill truly gives you quality for your money. The motor is extremely quiet and the frame is super sturdy. I’m a very satisfied customer and equally pleased with everything to say the least.”
Another one from Marco says, “For the price I paid for this machine, I think it’s a pretty good deal, although I expected it to have both incline and decline controls. The only issue I have with this machine is the console is slightly bent or appears to be. I tried disassembling and assembling it several times but nothing seems to change. So I don’t know if I was doing it all wrong or something is amiss with this one. Apart from that everything works just fine, would definitely recommend it.”
