Non-Folding Treadmills Buying Guide

If this is the first time you are shopping for a new treadmill you may ask yourself — If I had the option between a folding and non-folding treadmill (assuming they’re the same price) why would I not buy the folding treadmill?

Good question.

While folding treadmills are light and compact, two things you need for storage, they sometimes are forced to sacrifice important specs. Non-folding treadmills, meanwhile, do not share the same concern and thus can actually focus on providing the best motor, frame, parts and overall construction to make the treadmill work properly and run for a really long time.

Generally, commercial grade lines are all non-folding treadmills although you can find some really great folding treadmills (i.e. Sole F85) that are just as dependable and well made.

The non-folding treadmills being better argument probably derives from your local gym where most (if not all) of the treadmills should be commercialized and likely do not fold. However, the reason that gyms invest in non-folding treadmills is because they do not need the extra storage space. Therefore, leasing non-folding treadmills makes much more sense.

Since non-folding treadmills are heavier they are not recommended for constantly moving around the house, although some models are light enough and equipped with transport wheels for basic mobility.

When shopping for a non-folding treadmill the primary specs you should note and compare are:

  • Size of motor
  • Size of deck (or running surface)
  • Max user weight

Those three specs will give you a great idea as to what the model can and cannot support. As always, also considering the brand is important as some companies simply do a better job of producing treadmills than others.

If you are divided between buying a folding or non-folding treadmill ask yourself:

  • What room will house my treadmill (dimensions, square feet, other objects in room, etc)?
  • What is the size and weight of the treadmill(s) I’m interested in buying?
  • Is the treadmill already constructed when shipped or do I need to put it together myself?
  • Once the treadmill is constructed, would it be convenient and beneficial to fold while not in use?
  • Will I also have to transport it to another room?

If you are concerned about saving space and owning a treadmill that is mobile the logical response would be to buy a folding treadmill. Not so concerned? Why not purchase a non-folding treadmill? It really comes down to how much space you can afford to designate to your treadmill.
