Whether you’re a fitness expert or beginner runner, a treadmill is the ideal piece of exercise equipment to take your training and cardiorespiratory goals to the next level. Compare the best treadmill brands of 2018 and find the perfect system for you and your home.
Bowflex is one of the most recognized and trusted names in the home gym equipment business and focuses on innovative products that deliver results to customers. If you’re looking for a product to meet all of your fitness needs (losing weight, improving heart health, etc.), consider purchasing a treadmill from Bowflex. The company offers two different treadmill models: the Bowflex BXT116 and the Bowflex BXT216.
Though both options are great, we recommend the Bowflex BXT116. It features a heart rate monitor with integrated contact grips and an included chest strap, a 7.5-inch color LCD screen, nine different workout programs, and a maximum incline of up to 15%.
Bowflex receives a 5-star House Method rating (that’s a big deal!) for factors like easily-discoverable warranty terms, an extended return window, and free delivery—all characteristics of a treadmill brand that stands behind its products.
For those who want an intense, versatile workout and affordable treadmill options, ProForm offers three different treadmill series for your choosing. All of their treadmills feature heart rate monitoring and iFit compatibility.
One of our favorite ProForm treadmills is the 505 CST. Named Wirecutter’s Best Treadmill pick, the 505 CST is a folding treadmill that offers a roomy running surface (the running belt is 55 inches long), 18 different exercise programs, motorized, instant incline adjustability, and a space-saving design. Not only does it provide the features that most exercisers are looking for, but it’s also one of the least expensive treadmills on the market.
SOLE treadmills are made for performance and provide a high-quality gym experience in the comfort of your home. Not only does Sole Fitness provide high-quality products and free shipping, but it also offers warranties specific to each treadmill, ensuring that your investment will be protected over time. Out of the six treadmills offered by Sole Fitness, House Method prefers the Sole F65 Treadmill—a hybrid of the Sole F63 and Sole F80 treadmills.
The Sole F65 features a 22 x 60-inch running surface, 15 incline levels, varying speeds up to 12 mph, six preset programs including cardio training and fat burning programs, and Bluetooth capability that allows users to transfer workout data from their fitness equipment to their smart devices. This treadmill is great for exercisers on a budget looking to find a product that meets their needs without being too overpriced.
If you’re looking for a high-impact cardio workout, Life Fitness treadmills have a reputation for being the most reliable and comfortable treadmills on the market. Life Fitness also promises to equip exercisers with a transformational workout experience, regardless of your age or fitness level. Perfect for those all along the fitness scale, Life Fitness is one of the only treadmill brands that provide treadmills specific to each experience level.
The F1 Smart Treadmill offers iPod compatibility, heart rate monitoring, and a FlexDeck Shock Absorption System that enhances comfort and reduces knee and joint stress by up to 30%. It even has a space-saving design, allowing you to fold up the product whenever you need to make more room in your home. A free, standard warranty is included with the purchase of an F1 Smart Treadmill.
NordicTrack offers a variety of treadmills, including collapsible commercial-grade treadmills, C-Series treadmills, and treadmill desks. This treadmill brand also offers incline trainers that are perfect for walkers who enjoy a treadmill-style workout with a steep incline. If you’re looking for treadmill variety, NordicTrack should be your go-to provider.
The all-new 2018 NordicTrack Commercial 2450 incorporates state-of-the-art noise reduction and provides a lifetime warranty on the frame and motor. It also has a 10-inch smart HD touchscreen, an auxiliary music port, a 15% incline, 40 exercise programs, and a space-saving design with easy lift assist.
