Need a little help deciding? Here's some more information for you.
This price range probably contains the most model choices of all, as there is a lot of competition in the market place. But the leaders in this space are NordicTrack, Horizon, ProForm and Sole. These companies have been providing mid-priced treadmills for years, and they know exactly what users want. They all offer several choices that fall into the $1000-$2000 category.
NordicTrack is the most popular brand by far, and the Commercial Series is their most popular line of treadmills, with the 1750 being their biggest seller. Sole and Horizon offer fewer options but all of their treadmills are extremely well made and well designed. ProForm is made by the same company as NordicTrack, and the Pro 5000 is very similar to the 1750.
Each has its pros and cons, so here's a little guide for you:
NordicTrack Commercial 1750 excels in some areas...
Sole F80 excels in some areas...
Horizon Elite T7 excels in some areas...
ProForm Pro 2000 excels in some areas...
So each of our top treadmills $1000-$2000 has its advantages and disadvantages, but at the end of the day any of the four is one of the best choices you can make.
The NordicTrack 1750 and ProForm 5000 have more programs, decline capability and stronger motors. The Sole F80 and Horizon Elite T7 has better cushioning, stronger construction and can accommodate heavier individuals.
In general, if you are a serious runner or if you are very tall or heavy, you want to look for a more powerful motor and a longer tread belt. If you are of average height and a casual walker or jogger, you don't need to worry about these things. Just find the treadmill that has the features you want.
As a rule of thumb, the closer you get to $2,000, the better the treadmill will be in terms of motor, belt size, programming and workout selection. That is not to say that you won't find great machines just over the $1000 mark. But if you can spend a little more and move towards the top of this range, you'll be much happier with your purchase.
If you are looking for something more commercial grade you can jump up to the $2000-$3000 range, but these treadmills are just fine for most users and will fit in perfectly in your home gym.
