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.

22″ x 60″

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.


Maximum Weight Capacity (LBS)


Maximum Speed (MPH)

Today there are many entry-level treadmills that reach 12 mph. 10 mph is the minimum speed for running, but we recommend you to get one that can reach 12 mph.

-3% – 12%, automatic incline.
