Welcome To the “Best Treadmill” Series
Looking for the best treadmill? There are so many options on the market today, it can get downright confusing.
One reason is that there are some great treadmills out there – but it really depends on your goals, needs, budget etc.
What you think is the best treadmill is not what someone else thinks is the best treadmill because you both need different things.
So with that in mind, I’ve decided to do a “Best Treadmills” series over the next few weeks. We’ll cover everything from the best treadmill for runners to the best treadmills with TVs to the best desk treadmill options to the best super-cheap treadmills and more.
But today we’re going to start from a general perspective – what’s the best treadmill overall for 2014? Drum Roll:
Best Treadmill 2014:
The 1750 is the perfect blend of solid construction, excellent cushioning and cutting edge entertainment – all for under $1500.
This is the most affordable model in Nordictracks “Commercial” series – treadmills which are built to be tougher with a bit more substance than their starter models.
You get a super strong 3.8 HP motor with an extra wide (and extra long) deck which gives you lots of room to stretch out and run.
The cushioning is adjustable – so you can choose a softer surface or a more “road-like” feel. It folds up to save space and there’s a double fan feature to keep you cool.
One of the best things is the entertainment features – full-color touch screen web browser and iFit LIVE built-in. So you can go online and surf the net while you walk. Read emails, watch Youtube videos and more.
Plus with iFit LIVE you can download new workouts to your treadmill from Jillian Michaels or just run famous trails all over the world while landmarks pass you by in the console screen. Very cool.
And for extra crosstraining their 15% incline AND 3% decline. So you get a lot packed into this treadmill for a great price. The 1750 would be great for walker or runners alike – and perfect if you have multiple users in your home.
While some of the higher end models in the series give you a few more bells and whistles, if you’re looking for a solid runners-grade treadmill that won’t break the bank, the Commercial 1750 is a smart option.
