Running Area

When choosing a treadmill consider how you will use the treadmill mostly and the space available in your room. An 18-inch belt is suitable for walking. For runners, we recommend  20 inches or wider.

The length of a belt can vary from 50” to 65”.  55 inches will work for most people but, if you’re taller than 6 feet go longer.

Foldable

Foldable treadmills allow you to fold up the machine in seconds and store away to conserve space. Both treadmills are easy to fold up.

Motor Power (HP)

The more power a treadmill motor has the faster it’ll be at changing speeds. We recommended treadmills with a motor of at least 2.5 horsepower or more.
