You can get a high quality treadmill for under $1,000. We based our top choices off of the following main criteria:
- number of workout programs
- weight capacity
- console and controls
- track length
- ease of assembly
- customer service
- special features
With our top choices under $500, you’re not getting the motor that you’ll need if you want to do a lot of running or jogging, or if larger users will be using it. But with a budget of $1,000, the motor improves significantly. If you find that none of the treadmills below meet your needs, you may want to spend a few hundred dollars more on the Nautilus t618 .
Guidelines for Buying a Treadmill Under $1,000
- Remember to measure the space where you’ll use your treadmill if you’re in a smaller space.
- Look at the track length to make sure that you will enough room to run with a full stride, especially if you’re taller.
- The motors are going to be able to handle longer periods of running and jogging, as opposed to treadmills under $500, so motors are less of a concern at this price range.
