Unique to Proform is their ability to provide a solid treadmill in the lower price range. We know that a lot of exercisers out there are concerned with their budget and we were excited to find a brand that fits that need.

PRECOR

Precor treadmills and other fitness equipment are a popular choice for health clubs and home gyms. They only carry non-folding treadmills, which may not meet the needs of customers who want to fold up the deck when not in use. Also, Precor has no return policy, so you may want to try their treadmills at a local gym before committing to purchasing one for yourself.

HEALTHRIDER

Healthrider makes decent treadmills for walking or jogging, and they come at a fair price. The technology of the Healthrider makes the product more interactive and fun than other brands. These treadmills are attractive and come in a variety of styles, but Healthrider is heavy into plastic parts that can break or wear out easily. With only a 90 day warranty we had some concerns.

NORDICTRACK

Despite the lower cost on some models and the nice features, NordicTrack has a history of quality issues that didn't bring much confidence. If you really want a treadmill with the NordicTrack name, you should definitely consider the extended warranty.

GOLD'S GYM

Gold's Gym treadmills don't deliver the quality that we would expect with the Gold's Gym name. Their treadmills are known for a wobbly frame and a running deck that is too small to comfortably use. We recommend you choose a higher rated treadmill company for your fitness needs.

WESLO

If you are looking for a low priced treadmill and Weslo seems to provide an option, we recommend you save your money and choose a higher rated brand. A better quality treadmill with enough deck space for comfortable use is imperative to achieving your fitness goals. Models so cheap that they wobble, jerk, and break will not get you where you want to go.

Treadmills

Treadmills are a great way to get an excellent workout at home when it best fits into your schedule. Regular use of a treadmill is also a great way to lose weight and get into good cardiovascular shape. Treadmills range from the most basic model with no frills, to those with high tech workout programs, TV's, and more.

Treadmills are generally easy to set up and are suitable for just about anyone to use. Changes in the designs have allowed treadmills to reduce the amount of space required, thus making them feasible for those with a limited area.

If you can't set aside a dedicated space for your treadmill, there are excellent foldable models available. Collapsing your treadmill and wheeling it out of the way is a piece of cake.

Several different brands of treadmills exist today and range greatly in cost and quality. Before you make the move to purchase a treadmill, consider the following:

  • Cost.  What is the price range for the treadmills offered, and how does this compare with similar models from other brands
  • Belt Width.  What is width of the treadmill A small treadmill will be difficult for many people to walk or run in comfort.
  • Motor Size.  Motor size impacts the strength and smoothness of a treadmill. A good treadmill needs a decent motor size.
  • Return Policy.  Does the company enable you to return your product for a full refund
  • Guarantee.  Should a piece or part of the treadmill break, does the company offer any warranty for replacement

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best treadmills available today. We hope this information helps you find the right treadmill to meet your needs!



Shopping for a Treadmill Online

Considering buying a treadmill Then you should leave your keys at the door and pull up a chair to the computer. Shopping for a treadmill online has numerous advantages over driving to and from local sporting goods stores and discount warehouses. The end result is a confident purchase that saves you time and money.

Benefits to Shopping Online:

  • Selection. The Internet provides the largest selection of just about anything. This holds true with treadmills as well. Search from a wide variety of brands and models without leaving your home.
  • Comparison. Quickly compare the dimensions, features and prices across several websites at once. No need to rely on a salesclerk to assist as most information is located conveniently next to each product.
  • Prices. The Internet generally offers the lowest prices on treadmills as they have less overhead than stores and they are attempting to win your business over competitors.
  • No Salesmen. Often with fitness equipment you get a fast-talking salesman that is there to sell you a treadmill. Basing your decision on data you gather on the Internet is going to allow you to make a low stress, smart decision without being rushed.
  • Product Reviews. Independent product review websites are a great place to expedite your search effort. These sites have already done much of the legwork to help you find a quality treadmill that is priced right.

Once you're ready to begin shopping online you should take several factors into account before making your decision. There are many aspects of a treadmill that vary among brands. Finding the right combination of treadmill features will result in the most satisfying purchase.

Treadmill Features and Specifications:

  • Belt Size. Most experts recommend at least a 17-inch belt for anyone using a treadmill, but the wider belts are better as they allow more room to move around. Belt length is also important for a comfortable workout. Generally, a 48-inch belt will meet most people's needs. However, if you're a runner or have very long legs you may prefer at least a 60-inch belt to stretch your legs.
  • Motor Size. You'll want to look at continuous duty motor size in the treadmills you review. Motor size impacts the smoothness of the ride. Look for at least a 2.0 HP continuous duty motor but consider a 2.5 HP if you run a lot. DC motors provide the quietest treadmill if you're also trying to watch TV or listen to music.
  • Console. Look at the console and determine if it has everything you're looking for. The consoles on today's treadmills range from basic to very high-tech. Most have features to track your speed, distance, calories burned, and time. Others may offer safety switches, pre-programmed workouts, heart rate monitors, MP3 players and TV's.
  • Weight Capacity. If you're over 200 pounds it's important to check the maximum body weight allowed on any treadmill. A treadmill designed for lighter individuals is going to feel sluggish and wobbly for those exceeding the recommended weight capacity. Parts are also more likely to wear down and break in a shorter period of time.
  • Cost. The price of a good treadmill can start at a few hundred dollars and go up to thousands. Quality treadmills will have the highest grade of parts and components available for lasting comfort and duration. You'll need to balance the quality of the treadmill with the price when choosing a treadmill within your budget. Several companies offer financing.
  • Return Policy. In the event your treadmill shows up and you've changed your mind, you'll want to be able to return it. Choosing a treadmill that comes with a return policy is a smart idea. Several companies offer a 14 to 45 day trial period on their treadmills.
  • Warranty. Any big-ticket item you purchase should come with a warranty to protect your investment. Some quality treadmills come with a lifetime warranty on the motor, five years on parts, and two years for labor. Others offer coverage that is significantly shorter and seems to run out right before the first repair is needed. Make sure you understand the specific warranty that comes with the treadmill you choose.

In summary, purchasing a treadmill online provides several benefits over shopping at your local sporting goods stores. With a larger selection, simple comparison, competitive pricing, and convenience it's easier to find exactly what you're looking without leaving your home.
