Best Treadmills with iPod Dock of 2021 (2)
Which treadmill brand is best for your household? Sole is a top choice if you’d like a treadmill with iPod compatibility but aren’t interested in having other high tech electronics built into your treadmill. ProForm and NordicTrack are better choices if you’d like more advanced features for workout support and entertainment; the two models shown above include full-color touch-screens, Android web browsers and the option to download unlimited new treadmill workouts.
Treadmills with iPod Docks Buying Guide
Not long ago, adding music to treadmill exercise meant playing the radio or CDs. For the most part these days we have treadmills with iPod docks and speakers — and these are available at every price point.
Treadmills with iPod docks make it easy to scroll through your list of MP3s during workouts; most of these treadmills will show your music list on their LCD or LED display screens and have volume control buttons built into their consoles. Many will also keep your device charged during workouts.
Another perk: You can leave your earbuds behind. For treadmills today, just about every treadmill with iPod compatibility has a speaker set. For example, the ProForm PRO 5000 and NordicTrack Commercial 1750 treadmills each feature a set of high fidelity 3″ speakers. Sole treadmills have speakers too.
Choosing a treadmill with speakers is a wise move. Your music can make the difference between following an effective fitness plan or giving up on your goals.
