Best Choice Manual

As someone who’s looking for a great piece of home workout equipment at an affordable price I was certainly intrigued when I came across the Best Choice Portable Folding Manual Treadmill. This machine retails for well under $250, which puts it firmly in the affordable category. It’s not a machine with a lot of bells and whistles, but if budget is your main concern this may be the perfect machine for your home gym. Whenever I come across any kind […]

Best Choice Electric

After looking at the Best Choice manual treadmill I was a little leery to check this machine out, as I wasn’t overly impressed with the manual version, but the electric model appears to be much more suitable to my needs. While I considered manual treadmills, they just don’t appear to be reliable enough for my needs and so an affordable electric treadmill is what I’m looking for – this model fits the bill. With a suggested retail price of just […]

Confidence Power Plus

A treadmill can be a major investment as the best ones tend to cost well over $1000. Personally, that’s a little bit more than I want to pay; fortunately there are some affordable options out there. One such option is the Confidence Power Plus Motorized Electric Treadmill, which normally retails for well under $500 and is widely available. It’s not the most feature-packed technological marvel of the treadmill world, but it’s very functional and reliable. I’ve considered just waiting a […]

Weslo Crosswalk

If you’ve ever worked out in the gym you may have been guilty of the same thing I’ve done on many an occasion – neglecting one body part or another. Think of the bodybuilder with huge arms and chest and tiny little legs and you’ll get the picture. I’m not suggesting I’m a bodybuilder personally, but I can relate to the idea of concentrating on my favorite body parts when working out. With the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T Treadmill you can […]

Weslo Cadence

I’ve never been shy about admitting my shortfalls when it comes to sticking with a workout program, but I’m convinced that having a treadmill in my basement would be a big motivator. My wife’s not necessarily sold, due to the expense associated with a quality treadmill, so I guess I’ll just have to do a good job of convincing her. What I’ve found is that there’s a great deal of variety when it comes to treadmills, which makes it even […]

Exerpeutic 100XL

In my search for the right home treadmill I’ve tended to lean towards one of the slightly less expensive electric treadmills, as I’ve formed this opinion in my head that manual treadmills are poorly constructed. I mean there’s got to be a reason why these types of treadmills are on the lower end of the price matrix, right? Well as it turns out that’s not completely true – the Exerpeutic 100XL, based on almost all the reviews I’ve found, is […]

Sunny Health & Fitness

In my quest to find a treadmill that’s affordable but still has the features I’m looking for, I came across the Sunny Health & Fitness Treadmill. On the surface this machine seems to have pretty much everything I’m looking for in a treadmill. It has all the standard features, it’s got a decent- sized running surface, and it has some convenience features that I tend to look for in a piece of exercise equipment. Sounds pretty good so far. If […]

Sole Fitness F80

If spending a lot of money makes you squeamish you may want to turn your eyes away right now, as the Sole Fitness F80 Folding Treadmill is definitely not for the budget-minded consumer. Prices may vary, but you can expect to pay close to $3000 for this machine. If you just did a double-take I’m not surprised – that’s a lot of money to pay for a piece of home workout equipment. Personally, it’s a little outside of what I’m […]

Schwinn 830

The Schwinn 830 Treadmill is a great piece of home workout equipment. It might be a bit of a stretch to suggest that the technology is space-age, but it’s certainly top-notch and you definitely get value for money with this machine. Personally, I consider myself a bit of a tech junkie, so when I find a machine like this with all the bells and whistles I get goosebumps. If you’re looking to get a great workout and keep yourself entertained […]

Progear Treadmill

I haven’t been impressed with manual treadmills – that is, at least, until now. The simple and affordable Progear Manual Treadmill has done a lot to change my mind. This machine doesn’t have any fancy bells and whistles, but it appears to be very reliable. It’s not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but, based on the vast majority of customer reviews, it will give you a good workout at a reasonable price. If you don’t want to break […]

ProForm Pro 1000

Perhaps one of the biggest things standing in the way of a healthy new me is my reluctance to put down the technology for a few minutes – I’m an unapologetic technology junkie. Well, as it turns out I don’t have to put down my technology at all to get a good workout. I came across one of the most amazing pieces of home workout equipment the other day while looking around the Amazon website. The ProForm Pro 1000 Treadmill […]

Phoenix 98510

Let me be clear right off the bat – I’m not convinced that manual treadmills are the best way to go, so before I even took a real look at the Phoenix 98510 I had some serious reservations about it. This is not a high-tech gadget by any means and it’s not the biggest treadmill around, but it does have some surprisingly decent features that make it worth a second look. If price isn’t a serious concern for you though, […]

Nautilus T614

All home workout treadmills are not created equal – to put it bluntly, there is a lot of garbage out there. The Nautilus T614 is not one of those; this machine appears to be the real deal. It’s a quality piece of equipment that comes backed by a 10-year parts warranty and it’s got tons of features packed into its frame. I might be a little picky, but I consider a piece of home workout equipment to be an investment […]

LifeSpan TR1200-DT5

As someone who spends a lot of time banging away on the laptop keys I have to admit it’s sometimes hard to break away long enough to fit in my workout. It turns out there is a machine that will let me keep working and get all the exercise I need in the process. The LifeSpan TR1200-DT5 Treadmill Desk is just what it sounds – a treadmill with a desk built over it. Actually it’s quite a simple concept when […]

Go Plus 800W

There’s no doubt that the Go Plus Electric Treadmill seems to offer great value for money, but I just couldn’t shake the feeling that something wasn’t quite right with this machine. I’m a little skeptical by nature and while this might annoy my wife from time to time, it’s also saved us a lot of money. So when my instincts are telling me something might be too good to be true, I like to sit back and take a real […]
