5 Best Treadmills On The Market

 Are you thinking about buying a treadmill for your home or place of work? If so you have come to just the right place. In this article, I will be sharing information about the top five treadmills and giving you top tips on how to choose this key piece of equipment in your keep-fit regime. Now without any more delay, here is the first treadmill in our list.



XTERRA Fitness TR150 Folding Treadmill

 We have included this treadmill in our list of top 5 treadmills for various reasons, the first of which is the quality construction. Despite being solidly built, this unit can be folded and stored out of sight. I also like the feel of the treadmill which has paid a lot of attention to the cushioning of the deck. Finally, we like the large running surface which provides users greater flexibility. It comes over as a well designed, well-constructed machine.


Built to Last

 XTERRA build their treadmills out of heavy-duty steel components and they feature durable motors that will keep running long after some others have failed. All XTERRA treadmills are supported by a lifetime warranty. They offer a USA based customer service department.

+  Hand pulse sensors – mounted on side handlebars

+  Soft cushioned deck

+  Durable 2.25 HP motor

The XTERRA Fitness TR150 Folding Treadmill is one of my favorites and features all the extras that I am used to seeing at my local gym. Assembly is easy and the instructions were both text and illustrations. A nice feature is that the unit will not work unless the safety lanyard is connected, which is great if you have kids living with you or visiting.

 This feature provides a stream of high-intensity training sessions that feature world-class personal trainers who can control your machine and adjust speed and incline remotely. You receive notifications from the trainer over the speakers built into the treadmill (e.g. I am going to increase your speed now).

GOPLUS Folding Treadmill Electric Motorized Power Fitness Running Machine

 I have included this in our top 5 selection of the best running machines primarily because it is much lower-priced than the other models in our selection. Despite its low price, it offers many of the features that its more expensive competitors offer. 


Extra-Large Running Surface

One nice feature of this treadmill is the super-large running service. This is particularly useful for beginners. One feature that is not quite as good is the maximum 6.5 MPH, compared to 10 MPH on other models in our range. However, if you are a new runner, unfit, and wanting to lose weight, this probably will not be an issue.


Lots of features for a low-priced machine

 +  powerful and silent quiet motor

 +  LED display with many functions

 +  Folds up and using the attached wheel you can store it away

 +  Low price does not mean cheap materials. Made from quality steel.


This is definitley the treadmill for you if you wanna get a great price. One negative remark is that there is no incline on the machine. This does reduce its usefulness slightly, but that is the only key feature missing.

Bowflex Results Series Treadmills

 This selection is the highest priced machine that we have reviewed. This is a sturdy machine, the same sort of weight that you will find in good gyms. It also has a range of connectivity so you can share data to and from your mobile phone. It can connect to two different apps, depending on your needs. All-round it is a quality piece of engineering.

 The Run Social App

 With this app, you can experience some of the world greatest runs, like death Valley, The swiss Alps, and the Virgin Money London Marathon where you run the route complete with cheering crowds. This is displayed on your treadmills screen or can be cast onto a big screen in front of you, so you can truly feel the experience. The treadmill has Bluetooth technology.

 Running Deck

The cushioned running deck is a massive 20” by 60” which allows longer strides

 Folding Away

 Another nice touch is the “soft drop” folding where gas compression is used to make the folding away process safer and smoother.

 Technology that Drives the Treadmill

 The treadmill features a 7.5” full-color screen, you can select from 9 buttons that allow you to choose from the preset programs. There is a unique “Burnmeter” so you can set workouts to your personal preferences.

Motorized Incline

You can select your incline and the motor will implement your selection for up to 15%.

Extra Touches

 The treadmill has little extras incorporated into it, such as a USB charging point, a player for MP3s, speakers built directly into the console, Grip sensors on the handlebars, together with a chest sensor strap. Buttons that are LED lit.

 This unit will run at a maximum treadmill speed of 12 MPH which is higher than the other models. This unit is clearly designed for those who take running seriously.

Sole Fitness F80 Treadmill 2017 Model

 This is another professional looking treadmill at the higher end of the price scale. If you are a serious runner then this may well be the machine for you. This is a well built and HEAVY machine that may require three men to unload from the truck. Assembly can be a challenge but it is possible to view assembly tutorials on YouTube. Customers seem very satisfied with the unit and the average review score was 67% five-star, and 33% Four-stars. Four-star was the lowest rating it received. A popular feature as the tablet holder on top of the machine, so you can watch a video on your tablet and still see the workout stats on the internal screen.


Large Control Panel

 The massive control panel includes a 9” screen positioned centrally. There are 10 pre-set workout plans, which features various cardio exercises. It tracks your workout progress and workout statistics.


Blue Tooth Technology

 The Sole Fitness F80 has blue tooth technology so you can easily transfer your workout information direct to your tablet. The treadmill is compatible with several fitness apps.


Motor & Cooling Fans

 The treadmill features a 3.5 HP motor that will take the treadmill up to 12 MPH. The treadmill also offers an integrated cooling fan, which is a popular feature.


Make your own Programs

 A clever feature of the treadmill is that you can design your own fitness programs and save them for repeated use.


Running Deck

 The treadmill features a well-padded running surface which is a massive 22” by 60” in size. The deck is also reversible so the lifespan of the deck can be prolonged.


If you are a competitive athlete or someone who takes their running very seriously, this is the type of treadmill that you need. It has been built to club standards, to take a lot of use and runners can reach up to 12 MPH on the treadmill with inclines of up to 15%.
