Treadmill Best Buy Awards of 2018

BEST BUYS UNDER $399

Runner Ups

Winner

Weslo Cadence G5.9i

$300 treadmills have a bad habit of becoming a money pit if you use it. Although the Weslo Cadence G 5.9i looks and is much better than some of the cheap treadmills now being sold on Amazon.

2ND

Merit 715T Plus

Very basic and only for use by walkers. With that said, for $399, this is one of the best treadmills on the market in the $399 and below price range.

Intrepid i300

BEST BUY $400 to $699

Runner Ups

Winner

Horizon T101-4

A multi-year Best Buy winner for Horizon and now, the winner of our Best Buy Award for the $500 to $699 range! Great value for the buck but if you are a serious exerciser, you should look higher in the Johnson line.

Runner Ups

Winner

Proform Power 995i

The 2018 Treadmill Doctor Best Buy in a $1,000 treadmill with a caveat- it is a great bargain for the money but don’t think this can be used by a marathon runner and have it hold up.

2ND

Lifefitness Platinum Club

The full featured unit of the home line with all the bells and whistles. This model is essentially their club unit toned down for the home. And by toned down, we mean they changed the look a bit and gave it a new name.

Editor's Note: It is our policy of intentionally erring on the side of caution concerning reliability ratings so a key component in the rating still will be a heavy factor in the final score and these ratings were given with caution in mind. Once an treadmill wins a best buy in its price range, it is ineligible for a best buy rating in another category.
