61dmkmukv0l-_sl1000_


Sunny health is fitness devoted brand that has been serving since decades to provide the best fitness and health wearable and machines. Sunny health provides fitness products with promising quality. This treadmill by sunny health is worth mentioning for its output and results.

It gives you an excellent output and you wouldn’t experience issues that are there in other treadmills in the same price range, such as poor wiring and quality issues. It has a sufficient speed, is mobile and easy to store, and the console gives great analysis on the workout, all over making it highly recommendable for a treadmill under $500.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

Performance

This treadmill has the maximum speed of 9 MPH this is sufficiently great, some people may just prefer higher than this but that is for the professional runners believe us the extra speed isn’t a thing that the beginners and average people would be able to handle.

Console

The console had an amazing precision and display, the LCD screen was wide and the display was very efficient. Every data that appeared on it was sectioned so you wouldn’t mix up on the figures. If you aren’t that good with technology you are definitely gonna find this very easy to interpret.

Hand rail

The handrail is worth mentioning not only for its sturdiness but also because it comes with control keys. This really helps you to change speed or stop/ start your treadmill. The control of treadmill becomes even more efficient this way.

Mobility and storage

The treadmill comes along with soft drop mechanism, the raising and dropping becomes safer, as you let your treadmill free it settles down smoothly due to a regulator that doesn’t let’s it fall. This is really useful especially when you clean the floor area beneath the treadmill, all you do is lift the treadmill easily and sweep the area and then let the treadmill go back down by itself. Yet another advantage that comes along with this is that the storage becomes easier this way. The treadmill has inbuilt wheels for easy transport and relocation. All over the mobility was great.

WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

Inclination

The incline option that comes in this treadmill was good. it had 3 different levels of incline but the inclination level had to be set manually. Now ‘manual’ is something we didn’t like so much because you have to pause while exercising to change the incline level. There are treadmills that offer electronic inclination options so you don’t need to stop while working out, the inclination just changes with a click of a few keys while you are exercising. So for inclination we may say it was just okay.

Weight limit

The treadmill has a weight limit of 220 lbs. now this is a bit of an issue because tall or fat people are more likely to weight above this limit. So the weight capacity should have been a little more for the treadmill to cater the needs of a wider range of people.

FINAL WORDS

Sunny health and fitness treadmill gave a great output and came with efficient control keys and console the built was good, all over our verdict on this one is that it’s a highly recommendable treadmill for a price range below $500.

Pros

  • 9 MPH
  • Appreciable mobility and storage options
  • Console comes with impressive visual clarity, easy interpretation, and 9 navigation keys
  • Hand rail comes with control keys

Cons

  • Manual inclination
  • 220 lbs. weight limit

 


2. Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill – Best Compact Treadmill Machine.

 

 

If you want a compact narrow treadmill for home gym then this is it! Buy Weslo cadence treadmill that is much narrower than the other treadmills and would fit in a small space easily. Pay some attention here, its narrow not flimsy! Plus even if you are used to wide tracks you would still find it easy to incorporate yourself in this treadmill due to the strategic designing.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

Performance

You could jog and walk on this treadmill, usually narrow treadmill don’t support the stomping of feet but this one was good enough to tolerate the abuse. The speed is great, you could run on the treadmill with the speed of 10 MPH which is pretty fast and may work for those who like doing some tough running.

Would go great for the ears

The best part was that the machine was very quiet against the others out there. All the buzzes are a hell of a job to tolerate and if you mask it up with loud music then you may be deafened for the rest of the things happening out there. So as a quiet machine we loved it, you’ll only be able to better understand the benefit until you live with the ones that sound like jet engines.

The compact design that fits in a matchbox too!

For those who are used to wide track this might be alarming that its narrowness doesn’t affect the comfort and workout, users find it very easy to confine themselves on the track. Its narrowness makes it easy to be placed in congested areas. So we loved it for that, it would be perfect for your home gym.

Walk freely without holding the hand bars

If you enjoy a free hand exercise then this treadmill easily allows you to do so, the bars aren’t stretched out making it simple for you to do freehand exercise. Along with that the safety key prevents you from any unforeseen injury as it automatically halts the machine if is detached.

How good is this on sturdiness

It is sturdy but comes along with some ‘ifs and buts’ so if you are under 275 lbs. it is gonna be great for you but there is no guarantee if you abuse it or use it the wrong way which is by the way a case that is the same in every treadmill. It’s not gonna rattle or wobble while you run on it and you won’t hear those squeaky sound usually the low-grade treadmills start giving after sometime. So all over the sturdiness wasn’t that bad.

Other features

It has an appreciable bottle holder on monitor table and it comes with a heart-rate monitoring grip, you just put your finger and get to know the pulse rate. The machine could be folded to a compact shape for easy storing.

WHAT COULD BE IMPROVED

Monitor was ‘just okay’

Though we shouldn’t complain much because for this price the existing monitor isn’t bad, the others charge extra hundreds of bucks for all the fancy techs they offer. However, a clearer and better LCD with efficient statistics is much better. There are some traditional statistics including the distance /time and speed in the embedded monitor of this machine but some extra programs would have had been better.

Inclination option was out-dated

The incline option is available in just two stages and it changes manually. Well for the consistent lads it’s great but those who change their incline frequently and those who like variations within their workout may find it a hassle to stop their workout and set the level of incline.

FINAL VERDICT

This was the best compact treadmill we could recommend, it was sturdy and the tracks were great despite being narrow the design was good enough to not let you fell off the treadmill. If you want a treadmill that is compact for your small space then buy this one right away.

Pros

  • Good performance almost 10 MPH speed goes well for those who like freehand walking/jogging
  • Reasonable
  • Compact design with narrow tracks making it fitting for congested place
  • Sturdy build so you could jog and walk on it can handle load of almost 275 lbs.
  • Heart-rate monitor is available
  • Bottle/cup holder
  • Foldable option for storage

Cons

  • Inclination options weren’t impressive
  • Monitor display was not up to grade

 


 

3. Goplus Electric Treadmill 800W Folding Power Motorized Running Jogging Machine – Best budget treadmills.

 

 

Well at first when we saw the price we thought this is gonna be some cheap piece of junk coming in a range of $200. Don’t judge us for being harsh everybody could get sceptical when the price gets too low. But after going through the treadmill reviews and checking out every feature we got convinced that this thing just gives plenty of bangs for the bucks. We highly recommend it if you are looking for a best value treadmill that comes under $200.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

Performance

The performance was all over good the speed went up till 12 KM, there aren’t any measurements in mileage it just gives details in km. For the output we may say it gives effective results. You would find it as effective as other treadmills which come in comparatively higher price. However, this treadmill is not for a commercial grade usage so wouldn’t recommend this for the gyms.

Storage and mobility

This is a lightweight treadmill and can be folded in to become slim and trim. Being light makes it easy to move around and the folding option makes it great for storage. You could just keep it under the bed or behind a door and this won’t show. For its ease in relocation and storage it gets full marks.

The appliances and features

The treadmill comes with bottle and cup holder so that you could reach out for water/refreshments whenever you feel like without stopping your exercise. There was a bag and lubrication oil that came along with it. The power consumption is quite low for this one, it’s around 800W normally the treadmills need heavy power consumption of 1200W-2000W, just do the maths and compare the remarkable difference.

WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

Cannot withstand excessive abuse or a weight over 220lbs.

As mentioned earlier it isn’t meant at all for commercial grade usage, thus, excessive abuse and hard jogging isn’t meant for this treadmill. Plus it’s better for individual use or dual usage it isn’t a multiple-user type of thing. The machine isn’t sturdy enough for heavy weight users or hard stomping.

The track

Well the track is not bad so don’t freak out, it’s just strictly narrow. Catch the word ‘strictly”, this means it won’t let you be a klutz while you use it, you have to be vigilant while exercising on it. So no swaying and free-hand walking/jogging, it may be an issue if you are not good at co-ordinating yourself.

FINAL VERDICT

This treadmill came in great price and did impress us. we would definitely recommend this if you are looking for something reasonable.

Pros

  • Lightweight and foldable option
  • is easy to carry around
  • It is highly affordable is available at various prices all under $200
  • Would give you impressive result( has a max speed of 12 KPH)
  • Comes with a bag and a bottle of lubricant plus it has got bottle/cup holder as well

Cons

  • Not too strong for commercial grade usage
  • The narrow tracks area little difficult to incorporate with

 

 


4. NordicTrack T 6.5 S Treadmill – Best treadmill under $1000.

 

 

If the traditional treadmills don’t impress you and you are hunting for a treadmill with an updated monitoring system and wide tracks then what we found great was this treadmill by NordicTrack that comes under the range of $1000. It has some futuristic options in its console and for the speed, design, and resilience it already is great as it comes from one of the elite sports machine brands.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

It has got a “space-age” console!

The console was wide with excellent visual effects due to the backlight. The monitor has inbuilt speakers which would be compatible with your iPods or mp3 devices so now you could enjoy music in a better way. There is a cardio grip on the side bar, so you could just place your hands on the side bars and it would sense your pulse rate for you.

iFit incorporated

The treadmill’s monitor is integrated with iFit software and this gives it advanced options like Google mapping, designing almost 20 workout patterns for you and much more. These features make it the best fitness trainer.

Performance

The performance was good it had a speed of 10MPH; it was wide and strong with cushioning option that you could set manually. So you could give it cushioning for comfort or remove it to make it feel like you are running on the pavements.

Innovative incline options

We were simply awe-stricken by the incline options. It had a 10% digitally raising option and you could change the incline with a click of a button. What comes next is the best, when you choose a specific terrain on Google map, for example you choose the route of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall then if on that track there is an incline, the machine would itself elevate according to the natural elevations on the actual track. Isn’t that great!

Sturdiness

It came with 2.6 CHP for those who don’t know it is the measure of the continuous horse power in the motor, 2.5 is average so we could say 2.6 is good. Well this was the maths, now in layman terms it handled all types of abuses if you ran on it, jogged on it, used it all day or did anything, in all the cases it stayed strong. It came in a steel built which is the best type used in machines.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED

Sound was a problem

Well we can never tell what NordicTrack was thinking when they designed this machine. It is a mere assumption that the engineers might be thinking “let’s just not work on the squeaking sound as the speakers and music which we offered is gonna mask it”. Well sorry but that didn’t do it, the horrific sound while on the inclined mode was dreadfully irritating.

FINAL WORDS

It had a great performance and isn’t a boring treadmill that moves you, but this a treadmill that makes you want to move! It’s highly recommendable!

Pros

  • Advanced incline option
  • Great performance with 2.6 CHP motor and steel built
  • The monitor has advanced options
  • Is integrated with iFit
  • offers Google routing
  • Heart-rate monitoring
  • 20 workouts designed for you
  • Can take upon itself a weight of almost 300 lbs.

Cons

  • The sound while in inclined mode was annoying

 


5. ProForm 505 CST Treadmill – Best treadmill for runners.

 

 

ProForm 505 CST was the best treadmill that we could recommend for the athletes, with its fast speed and great motor it out-stands. It has a tremendous horse power and great strength and built that could withstand hard running and jogging. It was courteously long and wide for the tall people and had a decent capacity. For all these qualities, we absolutely think it’s highly recommendable especially for the runners.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

Performance

So for those who don’t know CHP is a measure of horse power and the average one which is great for normal people is 2.5 CHP but this one comes in around 3 CHP that means it’s fast and efficient enough for the athletes. The speed is up till 10 MPH which is fair enough for the athletes to do their regular training.

Cushioning

The runners have to do a lot of running and jogging; to do it all on treadmill maybe risky but when the treadmill comes with efficient cushioning it reduces the stress and damage level for the joints, so the athletes may now completely rely on this treadmill

A fitness trainer

It comes in with 18 pre-programmed workouts so that you could get a better fitness training by following the innovative latest workouts. You would get the best body after following the challenging workouts.

The built

It comes in a sturdy design with high-quality steel built and a wide track. The deck is wide and this gives plenty-full of space to the user to spread their elbows. The wide track also doesn’t confine you to a limited narrow space, you could run freely. In the narrow ones, a misstep usually makes your foot touch the belts on the side and you slip off but this won’t be the case here.

The incline technology

It came in an amazing incline option there is a digital incline option so the machine rises up to 10% in a click so, you wouldn’t have to stop while exercising to change incline.

Console

The console gives various amazing statistics including the distance, the calories burnt, the time, the speed and much more. Along with that it is compatible with your iPod or mp3 device, whatever you use for music. It comes with heart monitoring grip on the handle bar to sense the pulse. The display is amazing due to the back-light and the figures are clear and easy to interpret.

Storing this treadmill is easy due to the compact shape after folding it in

The folding options are usually there in low-tech treadmills, when it comes to high-tech advanced treadmills then the storage and folding options are difficult for the engineers to incorporate. However, in this treadmill this isn’t the issue, you get to fold it and easily store it.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED

Assembling was a hell of a job

If you are a whiz with all the biceps and triceps then maybe you could do the assembling all by yourself. If that’s not the case its highly recommendable you take experts help on this or else the assembling process may make you want to cry, it really is difficult to assemble the whole thing!

FINAL VERDICT

The machine is definitely a safe-bet, you are gonna love it. Once it is assembled you are gonna enjoy walking and jogging at home more than ever, for its advance features and horsepower we would say it’s highly recommendable for the professionals.

Pros

  • High technology great console options iPod and mp3 compatible system
  • Digital incline options, up to 10% incline
  • Impressive results, 3 CHP, max speed 10 MPH
  • Wide track for free-range running and wide elbow space
  • Multi-functioning console with heart-rate monitoring
  • Efficient storage
  • Sturdy built

WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

The belt was 1-ply and this raises doubt about smoothness in running and sturdiness. Normally the ones that are 3-ply are much better.

FINAL VERDICT

As we discussed earlier that the treadmill is great for its features it has a sturdy built but we would only recommend it to runners or normal users for home gym as the 1-ply belt won’t support commercial grade usage.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

The cushioning under the track plays a vital role in reducing the stress on the joints and ankles which obviously is a considerable benefit.

There is a low power consumption of around 500W and the motor noise is minimal which is exceedingly appreciable.

The built is sturdy; it comes in a steel body. The tracks were reasonably wide for a proper arm stretch. The monitor comes with sufficient options that would help you in exercise such as calorie burned, time, and distance. The handle bar comes in curved design which makes it secure and easy to hold.

The treadmill could fold but with a little technicality of pin removal but once done, it becomes flat and compact to be stored anywhere.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE IMPROVED

Speed was okay with almost a max capability of 10KPH or 6MPH, whatever measure you understand. So this doesn’t make it ideal for the runners. The built wasn’t strong enough for commercial grade use, would only recommend this for home gyms.

Wide track, a sturdy steel build, and reliable quality make it sufficiently tough for a commercial gym.

  • The monitoring is efficient with multiple programing and the pedometer keeps record of footsteps

10. Schwinn 830 Treadmill (best value treadmill)

This is another modern motorized treadmill that we would advise you use. It’s not our top contender due to its extremely heavy weight and the extra effort you have to give in while assembling it but for those who find assembling to be a non-issue, we would recommend they consider this treadmill.

WHAT IMPRESSED US

The monitor comes with groovy features though it is a little tricky to use but once you know how to use it you’ll love it for its multiple programing.

The speed is ideally great with max limit of 12 MPH and there is a digital incline option of an incline raise level up till 12%.

The build is sturdy, it came in steel and the track is wide and spacious for a free jogging and tracking. The weight limit is impressively 300 lbs.

The storage and mobility is also great you could relocate it with the help of inbuilt wheels and the easy drop option allows you to lift it and drop it effortlessly.

WHAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

The machine comes in numerous components and needs to be assembled manually which is very technical and difficult to do especially for a novice.

FINAL VERDICT

The makers may have thought that assembling was okay to be difficult as once the users use it and experience the outstanding performance they may forget the hell they went through while assembling and they were somewhat right. Point of it all, performance was brilliant so this machine is worth a shot despite the technical assembling.

Pros

  • Efficient monitoring, USB port, and heart monitoring
  • 12 MPH speed, 12% digital incline and wide track
  • User capacity is less than 300 lbs.
  • Easy storage and mobility

11. Horizon Fitness T101-04 Treadmill

This one by horizon fitness is also worth a kick and is worth mentioning for its considerable features.

WHAT WE LIKED

The wide dimensions of the track made it comfortable for use, the speed of max 10 MPH and incline of 10 % were impressive. There was cushioning to release stress on joints.

The monitor came with visually clear LCD screen and various programming; there is an iPod compatible speaker so you could enjoy your music in a better way. The machine didn’t make much noise.

The storage and mobility was appreciable as there was automatic folding option that would fold the treadmill for you in a snap. The inbuilt wheel allowed easy relocation.

Pros

  • 10 MPH speed, 10 % incline, cushioning, 300 lbs0 weight limit

What to consider when buying a treadmill

The track

The track belt is ideal if it is wide for more easy use but a narrow one wouldn’t be bad as long as you don’t feel that you could easily trip off. An ideal width would be 20 inches. The track belt is much better if it comes in 3-ply as that is sturdier and won’t wear out easily, anything lower would need care as it may not be much durable

Weight capacity

It is always very important to check the weight capacity and get the one that suits you. Another trick that the weight capacity does is, and is very useful, that it makes you easily judge the quality. Usually the higher the weight capacity is the much better is the quality of the treadmill.

Horse power

The horse power of the motor is very vital to consider, the horse power is the power of the motor and the more the horse power the less rattling and wobbling would you experience and the more efficiently would your treadmill work at higher speeds.

Speed

Speed is completely dependent on you to consider, a few people find max speed 6 mph great as they don’t do tough exercise, while, for runners and athletes we recommend they buy something in the range of 10 MPH -12 MPH.

Cushioning

Well this is very important a few people just save money and buy treadmills without cushioning, which is not a wise trade-off at all. Treadmill is an artificial substitute to walk on the natural terrains and so the artificial may have some qualities lacking against the natural or original. In the case of Treadmills we may say it is flatter and harder than the natural grounds which making it not so good for the joints. So to make it soft for the joints Cushioning is really useful and important.

Incline

The incline gives a little more challenge to your workout and burns your fat faster. Some treadmills come in manual inclining which isn’t preferred as you have to pause during workout and change the incline level. A digital incline option is preferable as it changes the inclination level in a click of a key.

Monitoring features

For monitoring features, the heart -monitoring is very important so that you could check your cardio workout. as far as the rest of the feature are concerned the most vital is the distance, time and calorie burn. There are some advanced options as inbuilt programming which is great by the way but if you don’t have much to pay then a compromise on features like programming, Google mapping, and speakers is okay, because you have all this in your androids as well.

How to work out on treadmill

Get yourself ready

It is very important that you wear track suit and wear proper joggers so that you don’t have any problem in exercising. The softer the jogger is the least would the hard surface of treadmill bother you. People are usually under an impression that all the dressing up is for gym and at home you could wear anything but this is wrong, improper dressing would lead to a difficulty in exercising.

Set the monitor

Once the treadmill is assembled plug the switch into a power socket and turn on the power. Now the main step is to set all your figures to 0 as you are starting fresh, most of the time it is already on 0 but for some treadmill that have memory may save the data of previous sessions in that case always assure you start from everything at 0.

Secure yourself with the safety band/key

The safety key that comes along with your treadmill is for a purpose, mostly people just don’t use it they think it is difficult to manage hand movement with the band but this is wrong. It’s highly recommended you always secure it on your waist or neck, whatever seems easier, so that if you slip or trip the key would detach and the treadmill would stop working, this would prevent you from injury.

Start with low speed and gradually increase

No matter how big a runner you are it is always good that you start at low pace and after a few minutes accelerate. This is the right way of exercising on treadmill and is good for respiratory system.

Don’t stop immediately

When you intend to stop its better that you stop gradually this is good for sweating and for respiration. If you stop immediately you’d find yourself breathing hard and that isn’t good, a calm breathing process is always ideal.

The advantages of treadmill

There are several advantages of treadmill but the most eminent is that it gives you a good and calculated workout. As there is monitoring and digital setting so you work out at the same pace throughout. However, if you do the same thing on natural terrain there won’t be any precision in calculations due to the fluctuation in pace.

The workout is great, it gives you great cardio workout; with cardio monitoring in almost all the treadmill you could observe the rate of your cardiovascular activity. The design of exercise for the body is such that 100 % of the body muscles are targeted and as a result you see the whole body is losing on the fats. Usually the ab machine, cycling machine or other types of machine fail to target the whole body it is designed for specific muscle but in treadmill the whole body moves.

It provides you with an alternate option to walk and gym, which you may not prefer due to the wastage of time because for gym you need proper packing of bag and leaving home. But if you have a treadmill at home then you wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of preparing and leaving for gym.

Summing it up for you on the best treadmills

Well the body fats don’t really compromise with your busy schedule or do they? The day you don’t show up in the gym to get the fats killed, it would grow for sure.

Just count the amount of days you didn’t fight the fats because of any possible issue that prevented you from making it to the gym? Let’s pray it isn’t much but if it is the case then buy a treadmill for your home gym and make exercise an ‘everyday’ thing.

We digged in to find the top-notch ones and have given our reviews on the best treadmills so that you could choose the one fitting for yourself.

Whether you are a lazy or are just not the fitness enthusiast type, in either of the case you still prefer a perfect body. Well now get the body you desire by bringing in at your home gym the best treadmill. These motor driven treadmills move automatically, all you have to do is step on it and leave the rest for the treadmill to do.
