The Marcy Folding Motorized Treadmill JX-651BW model is another great home treadmill by Marcy. Like the JX-650W model, it isn’t too big or bulky and the folding option offers great storage space for when it’s not in use. Again like the JX-650W, this machine is not meant for intense workouts, as its running area isn’t very large. It is great for beginners as the size of this model is the perfect size for walking and jogging as the motor has speeds from 0.5 - 8.0 MPH. You can increase the speed by 0.1 MPH, which again is great for beginners to find their perfect speed! This is considered a step up from JX-650W model with a little difference in price.
The console displays speed, time, distance, and calories burned, which is perfect for beginners. Every pre-set workout has its own automatic speed but it can still be adjusted if need be and you also have the ability to create your own workout. This is great to help you stay motivated! You can also use the console for quick speed adjustments by 1 MPH (1-8 MPH) using the (+/-) buttons instead of going up by 0.1 all the time. There is also start/stop button if you need to stop your workout in the case of some sort of emergency! This model does include a tray for you tablet or phone; only downside is that a tablet may cover the display.
The JX-651BW model has steel frame that can support up to 245lbs and features a corrosion-restraint powder coating that comes in a Black colour. Is doesn’t have the 2 shock absorbing cells that the JX-650W model does but it still has a very comfortable running service that is still better than running on concrete! Which can help take the load of your joints while walking and running. This model weighs 126lbs after it is assembled which is enough weight to keep the treadmill stable which running but not heavy that it is too heavy to move. You also get wheels when it is folded up to make moving it around your home a lot easier!

My conclusion on the Marcy JX-651BW treadmill is that it is a little bit of a step up from the JX-650W model. It’s a great treadmill for beginners and it’s great that the price is not too overwhelming plus it comes ready to use right out of the box. The next thing is that it comes with everything you need. This starts with the pre-set workout and ability to create your own workouts, ability to track speed, distance etc, to the 0.1 MPH increase to make sure you find that perfect speed! All of that plus the ability to fold up the machine to save space makes this a perfect way to lose some pounds, tone up and increase your cardio in the comfort of your home!
