And when it comes to the wide variety of treadmill brands, it can be almost overwhelming try and sort through the many treadmills.

But until you understand our ranking process, it may be hard to understand how we decided on which treadmills are the best.

These three main sections are also influenced by the price of the treadmill. We assess the treadmill from its regularly listed price, and see how it measures up against other treadmills in its price range. For example, if there are three treadmills which cost $1,500 on average, the above sections help us rank them and then we explain why the treadmill received its ranking.

After giving a quick overview, we take a deep dive and review how the treadmills perform in each section. We try to keep in mind that while more entertainment features on a treadmill may be preferable to some users, it may be a deterrent for others. Which is why we have a large section on what type of user the treadmill is best suited.

To close all our reviews, we cover our bottom line on the treadmill with our recommendation on whether or not you should buy the treadmill we have reviewed. In closing, we direct you where you will receive the best deal on the treadmill if you want to purchase it.
