Buy a treadmill online: How to buy a treadmill?

There are many reasons to buy a treadmill online. It allows better research and comparisons between different types of treadmills as regards types, manufacturers, prices and features of each. Shopping from well known & trusted websites like is a great option for those who need a product they can trust and makes everything much more easier.

Here you will find the best treadmills at with details about each of them and all the information you need to decide which is the best for you and compare treadmill prices. You can do your extensive research about all the details you need to know very easily and also get amazing discounts!. The prices vary from $120 to $1,500 and there are free shipping offers on some of the items.

Another good thing is that you can click on any of these treadmills and read the comments in the customers reviews section to get an idea about what people really like/hate about this product. These are unbiased reviews from people who ACTUALLY purchased this item.

Buy a Sole F80 Treadmill

I had to start with this one due to the large number of recommendations and good reputation I found about it on the internet.

This treadmill has a strong 3.0 horsepower motor and the speed range is from 0.1 to 12 miles per hour. It weighs 290 pounds and it is very easy to fold (doesn't need to be tilted). I consider it is one of the best heavy duty treadmills. But if you are looking for a lighter and smaller treadmill, scroll down the page for other more compact and lighter treadmills.

Some of its very important features are the 3 second countdown before the belt starts to move and the controls being on BOTH the console and the handle which makes it very safe and prevents accidents and injuries.

It has a 20x55 running surface and the handles are covered with rubber which makes them easy to grip and helps avoid static electricity. The maximum weight capacity is 350 lbs.

More features:

  • Heart Rate Control.
  • Weight capacity: 350 pounds.
  • Wireless heart monitor.
  • Built in fans.
  • Warranty: lifetime on motor and deck, 5 years on electronics and 2 years on labor.
  • Six Standard Program.
  • Very easy to use, assemble and fold.

Bowfelx Series 7 Treadmill

A very popular treadmill with a lot of positive reviews. Speed range is 0.5-11 miles per hour and the running surface is 22 X 60 inches long which is longer than the Sole F80 and better for tall people. It is very easy to assemble, fold and user-friendly. It weighs 298 pounds and so it is heavier than the Sole F80.

It offers 15 workout programs to match your needs (cardio, fat burn, manual, heart rate calculation, etc) with 2 custom programs. Warranty is 10 years for the motor and one year for electronics and labor. The easy to use console and the large belt make this one an awesome treadmill with many, many good features and a very good price.

A common problem about the Bowflex S7 and the Sole F80 is their heavu weight and large size. Some people don't consider this a problem is they don't plan to move it at all and of course the heavier treadmill means a powerful and more durable machine. But if you are planning to move your treadmill from one room to another or store it when you are not using it, you should consider a smaller and a space saving treadmill as the ones below.

Horizon Evolve SG Compact Treadmill: Compact, light and practical

This is an ultra-compact and light treadmill. The running surface area is 17 x 45 inches and it needs no assembly, it is indeed a space saver and one of the best home treadmills ! It weighs only 99 lbs and fold to 10 inches high.These features make the Horizon fitness treadmill a very popular one and you may find many good opinions about it in treadmill reviews.

It has a 1.5 horsepower motor and the speed is from 1 to 6 miles per hour (MPH). It also has a thumb heart rate monitor and 2 standard programs. A compact treadmill is very useful when you need to move it anywhere or store it (it can fit under your bed!).

Merit Fitness 725T Treadmill: Enjoy the free shipping!

The Merit fitness 725T is one of the compact treadmills under $500. It weights 139 pounds and the belt size is 18 x 45 inches with 1 to 10 miles per hours speed range. It comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, 2 years on the motor and 90 days on labor. There are four standard programs and a thumb heart rate monitor.

This treadmill can carry up to 250 pounds maximum weight. It is durable,sturdy, good for the price and doesn't look cheap. The Merit 72gT and the Horizon fitness treadmill are 2 top rated and popular treadmills.

Remember the things you should look for when buying a treadmill: the size and weight of the machine, maximum speed, safety switches, weight capacity, incline options and the surface area of the belt.

      Seems the weather gets in the way of walking outdoors routinely, maybe I need to invest in a new treadmill. I sold my last one when we moved a few years ago. This is useful info.
