Sleek Low-Profile Treadmills

The IPO Sports 'Mini Walk' Fits into Any Living Space or Office

— February 10, 2018 — Lifestyle
Treadmills are notorious for being quite large, which usually requires them to have their own space within your home to be stored, but the IPO Sports 'Mini Walk' is here to change all that. Weighing in at 55 pounds, the lightweight unit features no handles or large structural components, which allows it to be stored almost anywhere when it isn't in use.

The lack of controls on the unit works by interpreting your movement thanks to the Human Body Infrared Induction technology, which responds to where you're stepping on the unit to respond accordingly. This means hitting the rear will slow things down, the middle will keep the speed constant and the front will increase speed.

The IPO Sports 'Mini Walk' treadmill speaks to the growing need for workout equipment that accommodates the increasingly compact consumer living space.
Trend Themes
1. Compact Workout Equipment - The trend of compact workout equipment responds to the need for products that can fit into small living spaces or offices.
2. Innovative Control Technology - The trend of innovative control technology is disrupting traditional treadmill design by using infrared induction to interpret user movements.
3. Versatile Storage Solutions - The trend of versatile storage solutions allows treadmills like the IPO Sports 'Mini Walk' to be stored almost anywhere when not in use.
Industry Implications
1. Home Fitness - The home fitness industry can capitalize on the trend of compact workout equipment by creating space-saving exercise products.
2. Health and Wellness - The health and wellness industry can seize the disruptive innovation opportunity by incorporating infrared induction technology into their fitness equipment.
3. Furniture and Interior Design - The furniture and interior design industry can explore the trend of versatile storage solutions to create innovative furniture pieces that accommodate compact workout equipment.
