Which Treadmill Is Best for Home Use?

Looking for the best treadmill for home use? Here’s everything you need to know to transform your fitness on the cheap.

When purchasing a home running machine, it’s important to consider a few aspects such as durability of the product, ability to meet the user needs as well as the product lifespan. To reflect these qualities, it evidently means a higher price tag. While not everyone can afford a brand-new commercial grade treadmill for their home gym, buying a used commercial treadmill would be a sensible choice and a sound investment.

Why commercial treadmill?

Commercial treadmills are built from heavy duty materials in order to withstand intensive use and are generally more solid and stable than residential, home treadmills. Commercial treadmills offer:

  • Thicker running belt
  • Low maintenance
  • Large deck size
  • More incline levels
  • Better speed
  • Solid, stable feel during running
  • Commercial grade quality which you’re used to at your local gym
  • Long lifetime 
  • Premium design
