Top 3 Treadmill Choices Under $1000
The $999 price point is a very popular one – every major brand has at least one model at this price point. Why? Because a lot of buyers on a budget cannot go over that thousand-dollar point in their head.
But even if you’re looking for the best treadmill under 1000 dollars you still want to get the absolute best quality machine that you can for the money right?
So with that in mind, here are our top 3 picks for the best treadmills under $1000 (so far):
The C990 is a new 2015 model upgrade to the popular 970 treadmill and gives you a LOT of great basics.
You get a super-strong 3.0 HP motor with an extra long 60 inch belt to really stretch out and run.
Plus Nordictrack also WIDENED the belt to 22 inches across for even more room to move.
The cushioning is adjustable – so you can choose a firm or softer deck – which is great for multiple user families.
And you also get a large, backlit console with scrolling message board to direct you through your workouts.
The 990 also has some great entertainment options as well like the iPod dock with speakers, console cooling fan and 32 built-in workouts.
It also comes iFit LIVE compatible. So you can go online and download new workouts daily or track your workout stats over time. You can also map out new trails to run all over the world with Googlemaps.
Finally, Nordictrack also added a sturdy bracket to hold your tablet above the console. So you can watch your favorite movies or shows while you run. You can also connect your tablet to iFit and watch the trails you’re running pass you by in full color – very cool.
#2 Sole F63
The F63 has not been updated for 2015 – but it was updated back in 2014.
The newer model gives you a strong deck with 3.0 HP motor and 20 x 60 inch belt.
While the console is not as fancy as the 990 above, you do get an iPod dock with 6 built-in workouts. And there are side handrail buttons to change your speed and incline.
All in all, this is a solid, highly stable treadmill with excellent cushioning.
#3 Proform 995
The 995 C treadmill has been around for a few years now – but Proform keeps it around because it sells so well.
And that’s really no surprise as it gives you great basics like the 3.0 HP motor, 15% incline and 20 x 60 inch belt.
Plus it has a well-laid out backlit-console with racetrack display and scrolling message board to lead you through your workouts.
While it doesn’t come with the tablet holder like the Nordictrack 990 above, you can still use iFit with the dual-color console (although you do lose a bit in terms of graphics).
