The best treadmill provides the technology and power you need to reach your fitness goals. Before you decide what treadmill is best for you, there are a few key questions to ask yourself: 

  • What will I be using it for? Walking? Light jogging? Running regularly? 
    • Walkers will enjoy the compact affordability of the Go Series Treadmills, while regular runners will appreciate the larger deck and drive system of the Studio Series Treadmills.
  • Are there multiple household members that will be using the treadmill? 
    • If you have multiple household users, look towards the Studio Series Treadmill lineup for a more robust frame and deck combination for enhanced durability. 
  • What’s the weight capacity, and will that accommodate the heaviest household user? 
  • Have I measured the available space in my home to make sure the treadmill will fit where I want it?  
    • Assembled dimensions are available on each product page. You’ll want to make sure there is plenty of space around the treadmill as well - add 2 feet of open space on either side, 1 foot of open space in front of the unit and 3 feet of space behind the unit. 
    • Don’t forget the ceilings! Take the step-on height of the treadmill, plus the height of the tallest household user. Add about 12” to that total for the recommended ceiling height for comfortable clearance.  
  • Do you use fitness apps to keep motivated?
    • Look for treadmills with Advanced Bluetooth for enhanced connectivity.
