Treadmills Under $2,500 Buying Guide

Treadmills from $2,000 to $2,500 are what you could technically begin to define as the “commercial” treadmill market. Although you can pay $3,000 or more for a treadmill, the $2,000-$2,500 range is considered the low-end of high-end commercial treadmills.

There is a lot to like about this price group, especially if space is not an issue. Consumers should note that rarely will you find a treadmill that folds in this price range so if you are looking for something that is a little more compact — the lower price ranges make more sense.

What treadmills from $2,000 to $2,500 lack in saving storage space they make up in a plethora of other ways. You should expect some of the highest powered motors on the market, larger than average decks, excellent speed and incline range and all the latest features. Treadmills listed above are designed to last as they are very durable. If you need a good comparison, some of the treadmills you have exercised with at the local gym probably fall under this category.

Although the specs are all up to speed (no pun intended) you may be a little surprise to learn that not all treadmills from $2,000 to $2,500 are equipped with music capabilities (iPod dock) or even the big new sensation — iFit. We think that consumers definitely deserve these fancy add-ons and probably as electronics become more and more a part of our homes treadmill manufactures will adjust with the times.

Because of the hefty price tag (and above mentioned electronic limitations) treadmills from $2,000 to $2,500 are not for everyone but definitely designed for hardcore fitness enthusiasts looking for the very best treadmill companies have to offer.
