This is the Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad. It can perform all the functions of your regular treadmill but in a much more compact shape. There is an LED display where you will be able able to see how long you've walked for and there is a handy mini remote control to adjust speed on the go.

Why is the Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad a great idea for a home gym?


The Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad measures just 56x21 inches when in full size and 32x21 inches when folded.

In the end, you get to exercise right in your living room without bulking up the space with a huge piece of fitness equipment.


So, how to use the Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad?

You can operate the Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad like a standard treadmill with just a few minor differences. You can operate the walking pad in two different modes: manual and automatic.


You can turn the machine on and off either on the pad itself or on the remote control. You can also use the remote control to adjust the pace of your workout. Alternatively, you can rely on the treadmill's built-in sensors to adjust the speed of your training session automatically: start running closer to the front zone of the pad to increase the speed and move closer to the end to decrease the speed. In automatic mode, you can also turn on the walking pad by just stepping onto it and turn the pad off by simply stepping off it.

If you choose to work out in the automatic mode, you will not be needing the remote control at all — but the company insists you keep wearing the remote control or have it close by for safety reasons.

One of the major strengths of Xiaomi products is the fact that most of them are integrated in the Xiaomi ecosystem. It's the same with the Xiaomi Youpin A1 walking pad — the gadget is part of the Mi Home app system.


Once you have paired the walking pad with the Mi Home App, you will be able to track your training progress by viewing the history of your previous sessions. You will also have plenty of options for customizing your workouts: setting the maximum speed limit, startup type, sensitivity of the automatic mode, child block, etc. You can also enter your personal information (weight, height, age, etc.) for even more personalization options.

Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad: final thoughts

Should you get the Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad? We end most of our reviews with an ambiguous: "it's all up to you". We keep to the same principle with the Xiaomi Youpin A1 — but we must say that it seems like a very suitable step towards building a compact home gym space. The Xiaomi Youpin A1 folding walking pad is not cheap — you will need to put forward $429.99 big ones for the convenience of running in the comfort of your home. With that, you do get a very interesting alternative to traditionally bulky home fitness equipment — the one that will blend in perfectly if you already have Xiaomi smart home products.
