When looking for a treadmill within a budget price range, you have to keep in mind that you’ll end up sacrificing a few features for the low cost. Although you can find a treadmill that will work for you, you can’t expect to find your dream machine in this price range.
Be wary of treadmills that are under $700(unless they are on sale). The treadmills we’ve listed here are all around good machines, but anything less than $700 is likely to fall apart and not last as long as you need it to, and therefore is a waste of money.
The more you spend initially on a treadmill, the less you’ll have to spend on maintenance over the lifespan of your treadmill. With a cheap model, you’ll probably have to with wax or oil the belt every few months, versus every few years with a more expensive model. When you’re looking at different models under $1,000, look for a two-ply track, because it will be less likely to stretch out or rip. Another common issue with inexpensive treadmills is that they tend to be more noisy than a more expensive model.
