Flexnest Flexpad review

A flexible workout

₹ 27,990

A foldable treadmill of sorts, the Flexpad easily fits under the boxy confines of your furniture and serves as excellent home gym equipment for those who have a big bank balance but small homes.

There are two ways to use the Flexnest, both of which require you to stand and run to shed weight. Sorry, there are no shortcuts here but the way you set up the Flexpad at home may differ from the available size and space of your home. 

The handlebar can be raised up or folded down as per your requirement. There are advantages to both but it’s not as simple as snapping the handlebar down and changing it. You will have to use an Allen key to unscrew the handlebars from the frame and then lower the LED display console to use the treadmill without handles.

So if you have a permanent spot or oldies at home for the Flexpad then it makes sense to use it with the handlebars. If you choose to shove the thing under the bed or the sofa when you’re not using it then using it without the handlebars is the perfect way to save space. 

That said, this is made from plastic and so you might not enjoy touching it as much as you’d enjoy running on it. Even though the build is plastic, the treadmill is quite sturdy. It can easily fit folks of all frames and sizes and will gladly let you run up to 12km/hr. The centre LED display is basic but useful. You can sit an iPad or a smartphone there and browse content.

Using it with the tablet can make every run/walk interesting. The Flexnest app has plenty of walking and running classes although it’s the 50+ virtual walks that make everything a wee-bit interesting. You can read all about the app and its functions with the Flexnest product here in our Flexnest Flexbike review.

There’s also a Bluetooth-enabled speaker in the treadmill itself which lets you play music from your device. The Flexpad also connects to the Flexnest app and presents your workout metrics in a systematic manner.

When the digital console is pushed down, you get a second display and a remote control to adjust the settings of the Flexpad.


There’s no better way to sweat it out than to actually step out and run but if you live in concrete jungles like Mumbai or Delhi then there are many reasons to work out from your home. The Flexpad presents its case thoroughly as an urban child’s home gym equipment. It’s foldable to fit under the furniture and comes with a smart app and virtual coaching features to make the promise appealing.
