    Whenever I sit down to watch TV I think: “If I had a treadmill, I could be working out right now . . .” But I wouldn’t even know where to begin in looking for a treadmill. You give some good guidelines for people like me to begin the search. Space and size and weight would be the biggest factors for me, I think. I would want something that is easy to move, but wouldn’t a lighter machine be a less durable one?

      Hi Shannah and thank you.

      I absolutely agree. One of the benefits of having the treadmill at home is this possibility you talk about. The possibility of jumping on the treadmill when you are watching sports or your favorite programme on TV, getting good exercise at the same time you enjoy the TV.

      Compare the warranty offer on the motor, the frame, and labor. If it is normal, with the fact in mind which I name in the article there is no reason you should be worried about the lighter machines:

      “Warranties
      Buying a treadmill is a long-term investment. Always check for the manufacturer’s warranty offer on the motor, the frame, and labor. The more extended the warranty, the better for you. A good treadmill can have a warranty on its motor of between 10 years and 15 years. The frame and labor come at a shorter warranty period of between 2 years and five years. Always remember to compare the warranty offer on your preferred treadmill against other treadmills with similar features.”

    I want one but it will be too big for me to bring into my home with a small entrance door. Will Amazon help deliver to me? I have to install myself or there is a technician who will install for me. Which model you would recommend for a small body size like me.

      Hi, Kit and thank you.

      Usually are free shipping for this treadmills. And Amazon takes care of it, so it is in good hands.

      About the setup and what would fit well for you with the space in mind. I recommend Weslo Cadence because it is easy to folding and then rolling away. So in little areas, it is handy.

    Hi there:

    I have a pretty nice treadmill that I use at home but not as nice as these.

    I’m 65 years old and have always been into physical fitness. Because of this, I’m in good shape for an old man! Have kept my weight the same for decades and that is likely due to running outside and on my treadmill as well as the other exercising I do.

    These are high-quality treadmills and I especially like the features like the 12 mph speeds and 15% inclines. I know with these kinds of features a person can get a great workout.

    The XTERRA Fitness TR150 Folding Treadmill is a good one because of the padded deck. I noticed that when I used my treadmill my feet and legs still took quite a pounding because it wasn’t padded.

    Anyway, these treadmills are great looking and these features are top notch.

    Thanks!

      Hi, Christopher and thank you.

      You obviously the same ideology as I do. That is to mix running outside and on treadmills. This combo works very well. Depends on weather, like when it is frozen ground is better to use a treadmill and when the sun is shining, you should go out, mood, etc.

      About the inclines. Mix it and use it a lot give you an extra benefit. When you run outside, it´s not flat all the time, and it takes more energy in training to use it. It doesn´t make a long time to feel the difference.

      I like the XTERRA Fitness TR150 a lot. The display is so clear, and the speed range is good.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Fantastic review. I was searching the web for a treadmill and came across your article. I recently had blood work done and my doctor informed me my cholesterol is high. I decided at 50 years old I wanted to start eating better and start some exercise. My doctor suggested a treadmill. I’m really excited I came across your well written review, not having a clue what to look for. All my questions have been answered and I really like the proform pro 2000, I believe that will get the job done. Thank you so much for all the information and I will be returning for future articles.

      Hi, David and thank you.

      Great to hear your benefits of the article.

      The proform pro 2000 is an excellent choice. Very silent and the wide tread belt made is very comfortable to use. 

      Good luck.

    The incline feature seems to have to be manually adjusted or doesn’t have one on most treadmills. I thought that would be a “must” for all treadmills since it relates to running up hills or mountains. Do you know if there is a treadmill that comes with a watch that can keep up with your heart rate & calories easier? That would be a great treadmill to have since the watch would stay on you easier & you wouldn’t have to hold on to the treadmill alike some of them listed. Rachel

      Hi, Rachel and thank you.

      All treadmills have an incline, and most are similar, up to 15%. But not all. For example, have XTerra fitness TR 150 manually adjusted. And ProForm PFTL 60916 505C ST up to 10%

      I haven´t heard about treadmill which comes with a watch. I doubt it, but it is possible. But I think that is very unlikely because there are so different things people are looking for in smart watches. There are always basic things to have in mind when you buy a, but after it, there are various factors which people are thinking about so it would be a risk for the treadmills brands to add a smartwatch with the treadmill, even so, it would be useful in many ways. 

      If you are interesting, I wrote an article about what to have in mind when you buy a smartwatch.  You can see it here if you want.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    It really is great how treadmills can vary in size depending on leg stretch when running, or just having one that is compact or more to the point can be folded away and stored without a problem if you don’t have space. 

    It very benefited for me to see the difference between the treadmills so I can see what fit best in my home and for myself.  Thanks for showing us many options today and your reviews on these.

    Cheers, Sharon

      Hi, Sharon Whyte and thank you.

      We are all so different. So it is no which fit for all with treadmills in mind. Same for the houses. Some have massive space in their homes and other small flat and everything between it. So it is vital for me to have that in mind when I decided to list because like I have stressed many times, the purpose with this site is to give all types of people with different goals in mind, or different interesting. So to choose high quality in treadmills but at the same time have some range is very important.

    I have been looking for a treadmill for my house. But it is not a easy decision choosing between almost thousands of models. But this article has shortlisted the top 10. One less work for me. Now I just have to see which one fits my house from this 10 and go for it.

    Just one question- Do I get any warranty with these treadmills?

    Looking forward to your response. Thank you for the help.

      Hi, Sujandar Mahesan and thank you.

      Yes, it is a warranty for all the models. But it varies a little bit between the models, so it good advises to look at it with the models you like most.

      Good luck.

    I’m a walker, not a runner, but I enjoy walking on treadmills better than concrete because it is easy on the knees. The Nautilus looks awesome and not as expensive as I thought it would be. The LifeSpan TR1200i looks like the next best and I like that it folds up out of the way. Your extensive review of treadmills is very helpful. Thank you

      Hi, Alexander and thank you.

      Yes, I agree. The treadmills are very good for the knees. 

      And about the walking, I had stressed it that walking is a great exercise. A lot of people underestimated which is sad because if you take all the things in it, walking is one of the best forms of training.

      Good luck.

    i.m having arthroscopy knee surgery next week and doctors have already told me that a large part of my rehab therapy and a speedy recovery will be to do a lot of knee exercises, particularly walking at first and jogging later on.
    I came across your website here while i was doing research on maybe purchasing a treadmill of some sorts for home so i do not have to go out to a gym to do my therapy. You have quite a large selection of treadmills here which i did not realize so many existed.
    I am taking the position to purchase my own treadmill as to help me recover from my surgery but also the long term effect of preventing any other knee injuries in the future. You certainly have made the decision more difficult but i’m sure i will find the right one. Thanks for so much useful information.

      Hi, Robert Lilley and thank you.

      Thank you for kind words.

      Sad to hear about your injuries but I hope that you recover soon. And yes, it is correct to take one step at the time but not run too soon.

    Thank you for this great review on the best home treadmills.  Like many people I work full-time and I have a young family so it’s not possible to get to the gym as often as I would like.  Home treadmills help me fill this gap in my fitness routine. I like that the TR1200i Folding Treadmill can be packed up and put away for when visitors come over and when I want to vacuum up around that area.  I was wondering if you had a picture of it in it’s folded up state?  Treadmills are very heavy these days. Can 1 person move it around easily or is it a 2 person job?  The ProForm PFTL60916 505 CST looks very technical with 101 buttons. Is it still very user friendly. There really are only a few simple data and analytics based things that I want to know.  I don’t need all the super advanced things. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi, Glenys and thank you.

      It looks like home treadmills is an excellent choice for you. You have it at home and can use the time when it is best for you without spending a time to go to the gym. When there aren´t much time, it is good to manage it with the maximal benefit for your fitness routine.

      TR1200i Folding Treadmill is very handy. It is an easy job for one person to move it
      You can see a good photo of it with the folded up state on Amazon. You can click here to see it. 

      About the ProForm PFTL60916, you usually use only a small part of the flexible programmes. You find out very quickly what to like most and have the most benefits. But I think TR1200i is excellent for you because the space part and how easy it is to move it around.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    With so many options I’ve always wondered what the best home treadmill was. I really like the ones with a lot of incline and a high speed. The pro form pro 2000 looks like a good option for me. I like that I can go up to a 15% incline and 12 mph speed. 

    I would like to try doing some  hiit training and it looks like I would be able to do that with this treadmill. I was thinking about getting a treadmill for my mom for Christmas. Which treadmill would you suggest for someone new to treadmills?

      Hi, Travis and thank you.

      Yes, there are many great treadmills today. What I have focused on with this list are 2 things. A) Obviously, find what I believe is the ten tip home treadmills. B) But at the same time have good varite so a wide range of people can find useful information about the treadmill that fit for them. There are so many things to have in mind when people choose one, and it is vital that people get the best information they can have. With this range and pros and cons, I believe that I have put together an interesting list which at least most people find something for them.

      About the gift for your mom, in my opinion, is Gold’s Gym Trainer 720 the best one of many. Special because the AirStride cushioning to absorb excess shock and keep you comfortable throughout your exercise
      Has a full running track making it convenient and safe.

      Good luck.
