Best Treadmills 2014:
Best Treadmill – Overall Value
The 1750 gives you the best of both worlds – strong construction and incredible entertainment.
You get a super-strong 3.8 HP motor that’s big enough to run the larger 22 x 60 inch deck with ease. You get incline AND a 3% decline to further add some crosstraining challenge.
Plus it comes with a full-color, touch screen web browser – so you can surf the net or read your emails while you workout.
And with the iFit LIVE built-in, you can map out new trails to run all over the world using Googlemaps. You see the actual landmarks in the console screen as you pass by, very cool.
The new 2014 model also adds adjustable cushioning to further tailor the workout to your needs – a wider belt and accessories tray with a 2nd fan. 5 Stars.
Best Treadmill Under $1000
This is a tough price point because there is so much competition. But overall, the Proform 995C just gives you more for the money.
It’s been around for a few years – a testament to its popularity and stamina – and has also pulled in a few “Best Buy” awards.
It gives you a surprisingly strong 3.0 HP motor and extra long 60 inch belt – which is great for taller users or runners who want to stretch out.
The console is extra large and well laid out. You have the iFit LIVE option as well as an iPod dock and console fan to keep you cool.
It also has a decent cushioning system which reduces the impact on your joints by 28% (compared to road running). While it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of higher end models, at this price point the 995C treadmill gives you great value for the money.
Best Treadmill Under $700
If you’re looking for a simple, basic motorized treadmill which is very sturdy with a fair-sized belt, the T101 is one of your best options.
It’s well built and surprisingly stable at this price point with a decent warranty to cover your investment.
Although it’s fairly basic for entertainment, you do get an iPod dock, backlit console and 30 built-in workouts.
Plus, the hand-grip heart rate sensor will help keep it you in your target fat-burning range. And it’s easy to fold up with the hydraulic folding mechanism.
Best Desk Treadmill:
Desk treadmills have been around for a while – but the problem is that they had very low speed limits because they were only meant for light walking.
The Proform Thinline desk treadmill gets around this problem – it works more or less like a regular treadmill (with high 12 MPH speed limits and incline).
You can use it as a desk treadmill – or flip the top up and use it like a regular treadmill with console controls at your finger tips.
Plus it gives you a few things other desk treadmill don’t – like the 3% incline and even iFit LIVE which helps you track your online workout stats or download new workouts to your machine.
The treadmill also folds up to be ultra-compact – which is great for apartments or smaller workout spaces.
