Horizon Fitness T101

Cost: $6495

You don’t have to break the bank to bring home a serviceable piece of exercise equipment. $649 is far from cheap, but it’s a competitive price for a no-frills treadmill. T101 from Horizon fitness has a 2.5-horsepower motor capable of 10 mph, and a 10% incline range. It doesn’t have a monitor, though it can connect to a tablet via Bluetooth. It folds up and stores surprisingly well too, making it a great budget option for those low on storage space.

Pro-Form Carbon T7

Cost: $1,4036

A sister company of industry heavyweight NordicTrack, Pro-Form treadmills share a lot of parts and features with their premium counterpart.7 The Pro-Form Carbon T7 is an affordable entry point into a quality manufacturer, with a few less tech features but a similar build quality.

Bowflex Treadmill 22

Cost: $2,4998

Bowflex is a leading name in exercise equipment but they aren’t resting on their laurels. The Bowflex Treadmill 22 is but another feather in the company’s cap. It’s built to last, features a 4-horsepower motor, and boasts an impressive 25-degree incline range. The T22 also benefits from a prominent, 22-inch touchscreen monitor capable of streaming live workouts, popular streaming apps, and tracking progress.

AssaultRunner Pro

Cost: $2,9999

The AssaultRunner Pro is a staple at high-end gyms across the country. Unlike the others on our list, this one is a manual treadmill. Instead of a motor, the AssaultRunner Pro uses your movement to push the track along. The result is a more intense treadmill workout that burns more calories when compared to a more traditional treadmill.

Ready, Set, Run!

There are a few things you’ll need to figure out before bringing home a new treadmill. Make sure your ceilings are high enough, your floor is stable, and you invest in a good quality treadmill mat to reduce the sound and add stability. All of the models above are capable machines, but ensuring that they have room to run correctly can be essential to their longevity.

Adding a brand new treadmill to your home gym is exciting, but it can be a sizable investment. So try your best to avoid impulse buys and take a breath, do your research, and take confidence in knowing that your patience and knowledge will land you the high-quality treadmill you’ve been dreaming about.
