What is the Best Folding Treadmill Under $1000?

By Edited Sep 3, 2015 0 0

Top Rated Foldable Treadmills Under 1000 Dollars

The following showcase takes a brief look at the best folding treadmills under $1000 -- all of which have been selected on the basis that they are of course i) space conscious (and are foldable with wheels attached so they can be easily stored away), ii) are effective treadmills with workout programs (i.e they will provide you with a decent yet comfortable cardiovascular workout) and iii) they are very well regarded by their owners (long term users) -- and in all offerr a whole lotta bang (value) for their buck.

The TR 1200i Treadmill (2013 Model) By LifeSpan Fitness

Dimensions: 33 x 54 x 70 inches | Folded Dimensions: 39 x 66 x 33 inches | Weight: 198 lbs | Warranty: Lifetime on the frame & motor, 3 years on parts and 1 year labor | Rating: 4.3 out of 5 (86%) | User Capacity: 300 lbs |

This multi-award winning treadmill is my personal favorite. It offers a 2.5 hp motor that enables you to run up to speeds of 11 mph and reach an incline level of 15%. The treadmill is also installed with 6 elastomers across a 'biomechanically' correct deck this acts as a cushioning system to prevent significant impact on your joints as well as to improve recovery time (letting you workout for longer).

Moreover, it is installed with a LCD console system that displays all the relevant diagnostics (calories burned, time, speed, distance etc.) and from which you can select several fitness program workouts (all of which have been developed by leading fitness professionals). It hosts a range of features such as the media out loud speaker set up and upon purchase you get a free life time membership to the LifeSpan fitness club (accessible online to track all your progress after workouts, basically an advanced online automatic fitness log). A really fantastic treadmill to consider (would probably be the one I advise most user types to go for).

The Power 995c Treadmill By ProForm

Dimensions: 84.9 x 33.2 x 13.9 inches | Weight: 248 lbs | Warranty: Lifetime on the frame & motor, 3 years on components and 1 year on labor costs | Rating: 3.8 out of 5 (76%) | User Capacity: 350 lbs

Another award winning treadmill is the recently released power 995c treadmill, which is installed with an even more powerful motor -- 3.0 HP that allows you to run up to 12 mph on an incline level of up to 15% on an extra long running deck (measuring 20" x 60"). The deck is installed with  proshox cushioning that claims to reduce impact by up to 28% (and this accompanied with the motor allows it be pretty much silent in operation) -- so particularly good for those who suffer with bad knees and joints.

It also comes with a 7 inch console system -- again displaying all your fitness information and it allows you to see your progress in a track-style format (with a race track) which is pretty cool  -- as well being able to navigate within it to select one of 30 different workout programs. A particular benefit with ProForm treadmills is that they are iFit compatible, which is basically a system of taking your running workout online with google maps (basically like a virtual 'real life run track' with the treadmill adjust to the terrain type you are running on). Furthermore, it is installed with an efficient & effective cool-aire workout fan to keep you comfortable and cool whilst you are running -- as well as chest strap and dual pulse grips to track your heart rate.

The F63 Foldable Treadmill (2013 Model) By Sole Fitness

Dimensions: 33 x 58 x 83 inches | Weight: 253 lbs | Warranty: Frame & monitor for a life time, components for 3 years and labor costs for one year| Rating: 3.3 out of 5 (66%) | User Capacity: 325 lbs |

The F63 hosts a whole range of features and advanced fitness technology but just to go over a few of them briefly: i) the foldable deck is assisted with gear rack & pinion system, locking the deck into place & automatic folding mechanism (so you don't have to do any work, just hit a button and watch). ii) Ergonomic & convenient controls placed on the side bars for quick speed and incline level changes. iii) An advanced Sole 6.5" LCD display that reads out all your workout details (calories burned etc.) with a rolling message board to display further details.

iv) Also, with its high torque motor with flywheels along with rollers and belts -- it allows the treadmill to be practically silent in operation and ensures for a smooth and comfortable run. This is a machine that is built to withstand heavy duty force and should last more than a life time due to the strong precision welded frames etc. In all, a great treadmill that certainly needs to be checked out, particularly for the larger/heavier user.
