REVIEW – It now feels like forever since the COVID-19 outbreak and just as long since I have been spending the majority of my time indoors. Prior to the pandemic, I was walking at least 10 miles weekly and had lost about 35 pounds making me trim and fit. However, sitting at my desk for hours over the past few months while working from home, has caused me to slowly but surely regain the weight. While I do have a large treadmill in my home, it is not near my home office and therefore not convenient for me to use during the day. I would need a smaller and somewhat portable version that I can keep near to my desk. Enter the Goplus 2-in-1 Folding Treadmill.
What is it?
The Goplus 2 in 1 Folding Treadmill with Dual Display is a 2.25HP Under Desk Electric Pad Treadmill, featuring a Bluetooth Speaker and a Remote Control that can be used as a walking or jogging machine for use at home or in the office. The treadmill does not require much assembly.

Once assembled the treadmill has optional arms, a cellphone holder, and is foldable albeit that if it needs to be stored flat like under a bed, the arms cannot be attached. The treadmill can be used with the riser done and without the arms attached.
There is a release/lock lever on the right side that allows you to raise or lower the riser.
The cellphone holder attaches to the top of the riser.
On each side of the riser, there is a rubber cover over the holes for the bolts that are used to attach the arms.
In the center underneath the top crossbar of the riser, there is a magnetic surface that is used to attach the Safety Key.
On the top front of the base of the treadmill, there is a LED display and a speaker. The display shows, time, distance, speed, and calories. The treadmill is controlled by a small remote with 3 buttons for power, +, and – functions.
Underneath the treadmill, there are 4 leveling feet.
This first video below shows my first use/tryout of the treadmill:

In this video, I have my phone connected via Bluetooth to the treadmill and I am listening to music through the treadmill speaker:
What I like
- The ease of set up
- The simple but effective functionality
- The built-in speaker with easy Bluetooth attachment
- The simplicity of the design
- The included maintenance accessories
What I’d change
- A better manual
- The arms have to be removed entirely for it to lie flat and this requires removing screws
- It is difficult to move even with the built-in wheels
- This model can only be operated with the remote control, so if that stops working you cannot use the treadmill
- It is louder than expected and louder than my much larger full-sized treadmill
- Improve quality control. The power cable was defective
The idea of having a portable treadmill next to my home office is very appealing since it allows me an additional option to exercise when on a conference call, etc. However, this treadmill is not as light as I anticipated nor as easy to maneuver. In addition, it is not quiet by any means and this version works solely via that remote control so it that gets lost or becomes inoperable, then I likely have a large paperweight.

Hey, thanks for this super thorough review. It’s rare to find such really honest advices, which spared me and hopefully many others a few hundred dollars.
I’ll go for another treadmill now for sure.
Thanks for the review.
What’s the warranty period on the treadmill? (I can’t seem to find that info anywhere online?) Does it feel “sturdy” when using at speeds above 3-mph? I’ve also read online that the display info is in kilometers only, and not in U.S. miles. (Not changeable, right?)
What does E07 mean? Some sort of error? It doesnt even move. Its broken out the box. So dissappinting!
hello did you manage to find a fix for this? the same thing has happened with mine. attached the safety key but sill getting the error
Do not buy this treadmill. After a few months it stopped working! I am now waiting to hear back form Costway on how to remove the motor cover so I can try and do what they suggested. Warranty or not, any treadmill should not stop working after only a few months. Like many other people I bought this treadmill after canceling my gym membership due to the virus:
My claims would like you to do a few things with that treadmill
Open the upper cover of the motor and check whether the motor plug-in (M+/M-) part is loose; 2. Check whether the white cable plug of the electronic display meter connected to the motor cover of the motor control is loose or whether the pins are bent; 3. After the motor cover is opened, manually rotate the lower motor fan or pulley to confirm whether the lower motor can rotate (one revolution). If the motor does not rotate and jams, the motor may need to be replaced. If it can rotate, the motor control needs to be replaced.
Please try these options and let me know.
My claims department also says since your are out of warranty they can only offer some support.
I dont know I have the same issue and no support customer service…I think safety lock drop…put the safety lock in correct position. I did this still not working
Curious on how much you weigh and how tall you are. I’m 5’8″ at 280lbs. I know the limit says 265lbs. I can’t find anything similar that supports 300lbs. My intention is to get down to 250lbs quickly.
Thus looked like it had huge promise. Slim folded profile , hp , large screen BUT
Only a remote, loud, not easy to move,
maybe unreliable. I quite😟
Thank you for all these pictures! I managed to figure everything out for assembly but couldn’t get that raise/lower locking handle to work because I was trying to get it parallel to the treadmill. Your picture with it parallel to the handle bar was just what I needed to see. My fingers are crossed that I don’t have the issues others have had.
Has anyone knows the model number on it or the serial number I can’t find the remote anywhere it’s doesn’t work without, and no tags or anything on the machine or the manual book
Did anyone have an issue with the power switch? Its stuck! :-/
