Which Treadmill Should I Buy?

By December 9, 2009

Follow me on:

Are you shopping for a treadmill, either for yourself or someone on your gift list? It's a major purchase, so it's important to do your research -- or, rather, let the experts do the research for you. Consumer Reports, well-known for their objective and accurate consumer product reviews, recommends the following as "best buys": the PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR ($2,000), a non-folding model, and the Epic View 550 ($1,600) and the Sole F63 ($1,000), which both fold up for easy storage. Not on their list of recommended treadmills is the Nordic Track T9ci, which failed their endurance test.

Check out Consumer Report's treadmill buying guide video, as well as their tips on what features to look for in a treadmill.

Also worth checking out is ConsumerSearch's list of the top six best reviewed treadmills. The treadmills making the list range from the Gold's Gym 450 ($400) to the Landice L7 Cardio Trainer ($3,775).

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you
need to write more about this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically
people don’t speak about these issues. To the next!
Cheers!!
