Top 4 Treadmills for the Money

Christmas time is here at last and shopping for the perfect gift is hard to do sometimes. I have a few friends that are shopping for treadmills this year and want to know which treadmill they should purchase. First, you need to figure out what you are looking for in a treadmill and what you will be using it for. Are you walking, jogging, or do you need incline or decline? Next, you need to find a treadmill that has the right motor/horsepower that can handle your body weight. And lastly, you need to find the best treadmill for the least amount of money. Be careful, you get what you pay for and sometimes the best treadmill costs a little more.

I have researched the treadmill market up and down and I have found that the Proform 4.5 is one of the best products for the least amount of money. I believe it is on sale for under $600. This treadmill is packed with features including a 2.75 horsepower motor which can handle up to three hundred pounds of weight, custom display, iPod dock with speakers, and a great warranty.

Finding the right treadmill is like finding the right workout; you need to find what works for you and go with it. Good Luck and feel free to ask if you have any questions!!

In these scary economic times – i.e. threats of “financial Armageddon” – buyers should also remember many used treadmills are available for purchase at substantial savings.

A majority of treadmills bought over six months ago are just being used as expensive clothes hangers.


Great blog, great information. Exercise is important!

Yes, used treadmills are another great way to save money. Just be very careful when purchasing one so that you do not get taken advantage of.

I’d recommend the Nordic Track Commercial ZS $900 (rebranded Commercial 1500) over the S3000. With the S3000 you’re paying more for the LCD TV. With the ZS you get a more powerful motor and longer deck. Otherwise a good list 🙂

Jillian on the Biggest Loser reviewed treadmills recently. What did she recommend? Is there a website where I can find her recommendations? Thanks!
