Treadmills from $500 – $1,000 Buying Guide
Treadmills in the price range of $500 to $1,000 are an noticeable improvement over the low-end “extreme budget” treadmills that are under $500. By paying a few extra dollars you will enjoy some added improvements both with how the treadmill runs but also with what the added features include.
Treadmills from $500 — $1,000 are still technically considered “budget” treadmills in certain circles but with some of our highest rated series in that range (above) you will probably note that you are getting a quality treadmill.
Although the Sole F63 and Horizon T101 will only peak at 10mph (much like the Under $500 lines) they still have a more powerful motor and others in this price range can max out at speeds of up to 12mph. Consequently, the improved speed and incline range will suit most walkers and light joggers.
Along with the improved power treadmills from $500 — $1,000 also (on-average) sport larger running surfaces when once again compared to the Under $500 price range.
Treadmills from $500 to $1,000 will differ individually with specs and features (you’ll have to compare) but most should include an accessory tray, cooling fans, heart rate monitoring, pulse grips and quick controls.
