This Treadmill has a whopping 18 levels of auto inclination, considerably more than its competitors. Durafit Panther allows you to work out in many different ways and intensities to let you feel road like experience (1).
You can have a gym like a workout in the comfort of your own home.
Work out programme
This one has 12 presets ranging from easy to difficult settings. For a beginner, it is very important to try these out and then figure out what type of workout he likes the most and then build upon it.
In addition to this, set and chase programs are also available which lets you choose your preferences and set your goals.
The running belt thickness is 1.8 mm which is very good in dampening out the impact. It also has dura spring technology and gel cushioning for extra absorption of those painful shocks.
3. Lubrication & Portability
Durafit Panther uses silicone gel for lubrication which comes with the treadmill and it is auto lubricated once it is refilled.
There is not much hassle in refilling as the inlets provided are very easy to use.
This treadmill comes with a hydraulic system to aid in folding or unfolding the machine. Though it is a heavy machine you don’t have to put much effort into its operation.
You can also move it very easily thanks to its 2 big wheels.

Durafit Panther Treadmill Review: Our verdict
There are lighter treadmills available at similar prices but they miss out on the features. If you don’t want a buy looking treadmill, you can look at other options.
Also, it comes only in black colour with slight accents of red here and there. So if you want a treadmill with simple minimalistic looks then we recommend other options.
Apart from this, Durafit Panther Multifunction Treadmill is a good choice for those people who wants to buy a large treadmill with ample space and power to have their intensive workout.
Its build quality is very good and can last for many long years if proper care is taken.
