Best treadmills of 2021
Crouchelli called the Sunny Health foldable treadmill “a great shock-absorbing treadmill” that has the ease of saving space and noise in your workouts. He noted the shock absorption aspect is “ideal for runners working to create a low impact on your joints from start to finish in your daily runs.” There’s also a user mode allowing you to set runs to distance, time and or a calorie-specific goal. You’re able to select speeds between .5 to 9 miles per hour and three preset incline levels. There are also 49 inches of running surface for anyone up to 220 pounds can walk, jog and run on. An LCD screen displays your speed, distance, time, calories burned and your pulse.
The Xterra Fit offers three manual incline settings and 12 pre-programmed runs, allowing readers to have variety in their home workouts, which the treadmill tracks, keeping an eye on incline, calories burned, distance, pulse and speed. “The price point [just under $400] is perfect for a budget-friendly individual who wants to get into running without breaking the bank,” said Crouchelli. You get variety with your speed range – half-a-mile to 10 miles per hour, all indicated on the 5-inch LCD display screen. Storing the TR150 is simple too — just pull the treadmill’s knob and you can fold it up with ease.
“The best treadmills for home use are ones that are compact or the ones that have immersive run experiences, such as Peloton or NordicTrack,” said Athayde. “This is because you are either saving space in your home for other gym equipment or you’re getting the most out of your purchase with interactive features that make the runs more challenging and engaging.” We selected this highly-rated Nordic Track treadmill for a few reasons, including that it comes with a backlit display screen and a one-year free trial of iFit, Nordictrack’s interactive fitness membership, allowing you to follow along with guidance from a personal trainer — after the trial, the membership will run you $39 per month.
“Nordic hands down has some of the best on-demand trainers in the business, as they provide no stop top-tier programs across the board,” said Crouchelli. He’s a fan of the Bluetooth technology because it allows the on-demand trainers to connect with clients in workouts. The adjustable incline goes up to 10 percent and you can run up to 10 miles per hour on the machine, which can support up to 300 pounds.
If you’re not into treadmill bars and risers then you’re in luck, as this offering from Goplus allows you to fold the riser up and recreate the outdoor jogging experience indoors. The quiet machine has a five-layer, non-slip running belt offering extra cushioning for your joints, shock absorption and durability. If you don’t already own a smartwatch such as a FitBit or Apple Watch, then you can track your metrics — speed, time, distance and calories burned —on the LED display screen.
For a commercial-grade treadmill, consider the NordicTrack X22i, which boasts a 22-inch touchscreen where you can stream exercise classes through iFit. The X22i features Bluetooth tech, two speakers and fans which help self-cool the machine. It also offers versatility — hold onto the built-in push bar and sled grips to switch things up for a sled push at home. NordricTrack says X22i’s deck offers low-impact cushioning and is more gentle on your joints. Additionally, you can run up to 12 miles per hour on the machine and increase the incline up to 40 percent for an uphill climb at-home.
Crouchelli described the ProForm as the “top of the line” when it comes to your at-home treadmill. Why? The machine boasts interactive training sessions and connected fitness tracking. “This treadmill is also spatially friendly — with the best motor on the market — and includes a heavy duty drive system that cools itself to handle the constant incline and speed changes from your training,” he said. You can run up to 12 miles per hour on the machine, which can hold someone up to 325 pounds, comes with a 10-year warranty and one month free trial of iFit membership.
Shopping for a treadmill with a variety of workout routines already built into the system? Consider this Bluetooth-enabled machine that comes with 26 workout programs and dual screens so you can track your metrics, like your heart rate and weight management. Nautilus also has a free smartphone app called Explore the World, which allows you to choose from 27 routes in 19 locations, so you can workout alongside other Nautilus owners in real time. The durable treadmill also has a 350 pound weight capacity, heart rate strap and an accessory bar to hold your towels and smart water bottle.
We’ve previously mentioned the Echelon Stride in a recent installation of our weekly New and Notable column. Beyond a touchscreen monitor with Bluetooth connectivity, the machine folds up automatically with the push of a button. Once folded up, the Stride has a depth of 10 inches and its wheels will help you store it with ease. Crouchelli described this space-saving treadmill as “extremely light” and offers an “awesome” on-demand option, which he said allows you to compete and challenge your friends and family in workouts. Echelon created virtual fitness classes specifically for the Stride treadmill, and Crouchelli is a fan of the community, calling it “world class.” “Echelon offers an extended outreach and connection from their instructors to members daily,” he said. The Echelon United subscription is $39.99 per month.
ProForm, another well-liked brand among Shopping readers, created the T10 treadmill featuring handlebars with EKG sensors to keep tabs on your heart rate. Beyond the 10-inch HD touchscreen display, dual speakers and one-year complementary membership to iFIT (if you order from Dick’s Sporting Goods), this ProForm treadmill sports a cooling fan along with a self-cooling motor to prevent it from overheating. The treadmill is also relatively compact and can be folded up for easy storage when not in use.
10. Peloton Tread+
Sprint up to 12.5 MPH or climb a 15 percent incline on this ultra-luxe slat bell treadmill, which offers shock absorption for high-impact cardio workouts. It boasts a 32-inch flat touchscreen monitor that displays your metrics and rotates if you ever want to hop off your treadmill and stream one of Peloton’s other fitness classes, ranging from yoga to bootcamp and stretching. To access these live-streamed and on-demand fitness classes, you’ll have to pay $39 for a monthly membership. If you’re not interested in spending nearly $4,300 on a treadmill but still want the Peloton experience, consider the Peloton Tread, a small and less expansive treadmill that drops on March 30 and costs just under $2,500.
