COMPARING HOME TREADMILLS BY FEATURES
In an ideal world we would all like the most stylish, quietest and fully-featured treadmill. What you’ll find is that you do not need to shell out $300+ to get something which ticks most of the boxes these days.
What I recommend is that you look through the list of key features below and work out which are must-have and which are nice to have. More than anything else your must-have list will let you narrow down the options. Once you have 2 or 3 candidate models, the nice to have criteria can help you make that final decision. You’ll find more detail in my ‘buy treadmills online’ guide. This section will help you to navigate the reviews, I have left out ‘price’ from this list, though this is mentioned in many of the criteria.
#1 – Space Needed: Does a treadmill fold away? If not is it easy to move?
#2 – Speed: Some models are capped at 10 km / hr or even less for ‘walking’ models. If you want to go faster, or have long legs, this is worth checking.
#3 – Incline: The best models have automatic incline adjustment, mid-range do this manually and budget not at all. It makes a difference to the intensity of your workout.
#4 – Programs: Only the cheapest treadmills will not have a computer on board. They do vary a lot though. Some are basic, just tracking your speed and distance, while others will remember your settings and have programs which you can enjoy that vary the speed and so on. Some models are now integrating with apps too.
#5 – Monitors: Mid-range models measure your pulse through hand-grips, upper end models do this via bluetooth and can even use this information to vary your program.
#6 – Entertainment: A holder for your iPhone, integrated speakers – or even a display can be included.
#7 – Style: Most treadmills look the same, though there are now models which stand out from the crowd with distinctive styling or colours.
TREADMILL REVIEWS FOR READERS WITH SPECIFIC GOALS
Here are some shortcuts for readers with specific aims. I have chosen treadmills which fit certain circumstances a lot better than others, and provided a link to the review.
#1 – Short of Space? Check these Folding Treadmill Reviews
Having a solid and reliable treadmill that also folds away neatly against a wall is a big factor for many of us. Some treadmills which say they are folding end up having a big footprint, so you do need to be cautious here. The most popular fully folding treadmill is the mid-budget price $100-$200. If you are looking for a budget folding model to get you started, then check out the review of new 12km/hr Incline Electric
#2 – Just Getting Started? Beginners Treadmill Reviews
You’ll want a treadmill that is capable of covering your needs once you are ‘up to speed’ with fitness, as well as one which is suitable to get started with. I would recommend choosing a treadmill which has plenty of programs, some basic music / phone connectivity and has an adjustable incline you can use as your fitness level increases. For lower budget runners, Fitness SF-T7603 Motorized Treadmill fits these criteria very nicely, if you have a little more to spend, then Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill offers a lot of features and is excellent value for money.
#3 – Dont Want to Distrurb the Other Half? Quiet Treadmill Reviews
There is a huge difference between the quietest treadmills and the rest. There is an element of price involved – the higher spec treadmills have quieter mechanisms as a rule – though there is also plenty of variation in the budget and mid-ranges. This is not just the whirring of the conveyer – the way your footfall resonates through the machine should also be taken into account.
#4 – On a Tight Budget? Best Value Treadmills
Many of us do not want to splash out thousands on a treadmill – making budget an important consideration when choosing which one to buy. Finding the match between price, features, build and popularity has unveiled some ‘hidden gems’ when it comes to the best value treadmills. Specific recommendations include the excellent Schwinn 830 Treadmill which for under $800 has many of the features (and the build quality) of treadmills double that price.
#5 – Serious About Treadmills? Pro Level Reviews
Specs of pro level treadmills are amazing these days. Advances in computer equipment and manufacturing have created quiet, multi-functional machines with programs which can be tailored to you. Sure, you’ll need to invest a little more – though once you see the specs available, I am sure you’ll agree that these are amazing pieces of fitness equipment. Two examples to see right now are the Nautilus T614 Treadmill and the Schwinn 870 Treadmill (amazing gym-level model).
