Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill Review

Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill Review

I purchased this treadmill in the fall of 2018 and use it almost daily. My intention when I was to use it to help me get into shape for a hiking trip that I had planned for the summer of 2019. Normally, I would walk daily at local parks but I needed something to supplement on days that weather or my busy schedule prevented me from getting out. Shortly after I started using the treadmill, I began to have aches and pains that I couldn’t explain so I went to a doctor and found out that I have moderate to severe osteoarthritis. Now I use the treadmill to ease the osteoarthritis pain in my legs and to keep from getting stiff.

My shopping experience

I was very surprised to find out that my local community, which I thought had everything, only had two stores that displayed treadmills. Because I was looking for something very basic, between the two stores I found only three possibilities. In the store that had two choices, I could not find anyone to wait on me and the third treadmill was missing one of the options that I was hoping for.

Reluctant to purchase such a large item without the ability to try it, but feeling that I had no choice, I began to search online. The Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Cadence Treadmill, Black,WLTL29615Weslo Cadence G 59i not only met but exceeded my expectations.

What I was looking for:

I wanted a basic treadmill with the following features:

  • Adjustable speeds
  • Incline option (It has 2-positions)
  • Space-saving
  • Moveable
  • A place to hold my book or e-reader
  • Affordable

I got all of that and so much more:

In addition to those features, I was excited to gain these:

  • Six preset workouts which give my workout a boost and removes the “boredom” factor
  • Free trial for iFit Coach where you can use thousands of on-demand workouts with expert trainers either in a virtual studio or around the world
  • Bluetooth enabled
  • Includes a 1-year warranty on the motor a 90-day warranty for parts and labor
  • Safety clip, when used properly, will shut down the machine when disengaged
  • Heart rate monitor
  • Comfort cell cushioning

Other useful information:

  • Accommodates up to 275 pounds
  • The tread belt measures 16″ x 50″
  • Includes ten speeds
  • Displays time, distance, incline, heart rate, speed, calories burned
  • Additional protection plans available
  • When I purchased mine, Amazon offered a delivery and assembly option for considerably less than my local store.

Weslo recommends using a surge suppressor. I was pleased to find out that there is something other than the power strips that I use for my computer.

A simple yoga mat can be cut to size and placed under your treadmill to protect your floor. This one comes in a variety of colors.

Concluding remarks

I am very satisfied with my purchase and recommend this treadmill to anyone looking for an affordable, basic treadmill. Amazon’s website has several additional photographs and details about the Weslo Cadence G 5.9i treadmill.


I hope this review has helped you to make a decision about purchasing your treadmill. If you have any questions or comments, please email me at or comment below.

  1. Hey Theresa!

    This really looks like a great treadmill which doesn’t take that much space. I haven’t needed own treadmill, because I work at the gym, but when I someday quit working there, I’ll keep this one on my mind!
    Thanks for this great review!

    1. Hi Mira,Thanks for stopping by. I hope that one day they will put a gym in the shopping center nearest me. Maybe then I will become as consistent about my strengthening exercises as I am with walking.

  2. Wow! this is excellent review about weslo cadence treadmill. I would not know so much information about it if I did not read this review about it. I believe this will help many people to lose their weight and it will be a perfect choice for them since it is multi functional and longer lasting. I am going to share it with my family member. Thanks for sharing this wonderful review.

    1. Thank you for reading my review. I hope it will help your family member to make an informed decision about purchasing a treadmill. 

  3. Hi Theresa, I’m sorry to hear that you have osteoarthritis; that must have come as a shock. Still, there are many ways you can ease it and exercise is one of them.
    What a great idea to have your own treadmill at home. I love walking in the great outdoors when possible but as I live in the UK this isn’t always possible. It would be so simple to be able to exercise whilst watching TV in the comfort of your own home, and these treadmills have all the mod cons to be able to monitor exactly how much distance you are covering which would be a great feature when in training for an event.

    1. Hi, Stephanie: I appreciate your thoughtful comment. Watching TV while on the treadmill is very popular but I tend to use my tablet to watch Ted talks or training videos. It fits nicely on the console and I can use my earbuds. Later, if I decide to use the iFit option I may be able to walk around the UK while staying warm and dry! I’ll be waving at you. 🙂

  4. I love running but I hate it. I didn’t think that there was really a huge difference for them but it seems there is!

    I try to run around 3 miles a day and it takes a toll on me.

    I’m going to do some shopping now,

    Thank you

    1. Hi Patrick, I have never been able to run but have always wanted the benefits it provides. I like the workouts that are programmed into this treadmill because they alternate short bursts of going fast with slower bits and that works well for me. I admire you for working through the running even though it’s hard.

  5. Many thanks for your hard work with this Weslo Cadence treadmill review as I have several other reviews and was still undecided. I previously had a Reebok but after several years and hard running the motor finally burnt out. Can you let me know how long the warranty period is here please? Many thanks

    1. I didn’t know that Reebok makes treadmills; I buy my shoes from them. The warranty on the motor is for one year but I was so pleased with the price of the item that I purchased the extended warranty with mine and still came out ahead.

  6. Wow, the Weslo Cadence looks really nice. I like the preset workouts and the bluetooth features.

    This is definitely for me. The features and pricing are really good.

    I also like how you listed the speeds, too many people don’t include that. Thanks!

  7.

  8. Good evening Theresa,

    I was one of those people who does have a look at the About Me page. I find it often helpful when commenting on a particular post. It is nice to hear you enjoy writing, I do too. Before I got my computer end of 2013 I used to do all my correspondence by hand. For 2 years I have 2 websites and I enjoy writing about things which catch my interest.

    I have never owned a Treadmill. Your review on Weslo Cadence G 5.9 comes in handy as it provides a lot of information. The closest I have ever come to a treadmill was the vibrating platform I used for some years. It certainly developed more muscle in my legs. Thank you, this was interesting.

    Regards, Taetske

  9. Hi Theresa, thanks for this write up. I’ve been on the look out for a treadmill to replace my old Treadmill, I was faced with same scenario when looking out for a similar equipments in my Local store. I so much relied on my local store but they couldn’t meet my expectations. All they had are very similar to the old treadmill. I’ve checked out the Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill and it’s perfect thing I needed. 

  10. Yes I love the treadmill Very much and it’s simple and it’s doing what is supposed to without agrich that way to go.i was on the process of looking for a treadmill that is not expensive one  and the which will  do wat I want without so much complications and yes I have it I will go for this treadmill.

    1. I’m happy to see that other people like the simpler models like I do. There were many big, fancy ones in the store, but I didn’t need that many features and they take up too much room. Thank you for stopping by!

  11. I am happy to see this review about treadmill, I also have a similar experience, it is very cheap and affordable. All what you have written in the article above is the clear picture of what treadmill is all about. Actually mine wasn’t gotten from amazon but I hope to make my purchase from amazon anytime soon. Thanks for the enlightenment

  12. This looks like a good starter treadmill, as it doesn’t seem to take up too much space and also looks lightweight enough to be moved aside if necessary. The rack for holding reading material is also a nice touch. It wouldn’t be safe to go out running while reading as you’d soon bump into somethin, but the treadmill offers the chance to do two things at once.

    1. I recently moved the treadmill from one side of a room to the other and found it surprisingly easy. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. The major reason why I haven’t purchase a treadmill despite my love to get one is because I was looking for an affordable one. The one I have been seeing are so expensive but thanks for sharing this information as it as showed me the affordable one to purchase. I will start following you to get more updates from you.

    1. Thanks, Lok. I had a treadmill on my wishlist for several years before I finally started shopping. The price of this was a pleasant surprise!
