Fortunately these days you have more good choices in the $500 to $1000 range than you did just a few years ago. Although you aren't going to find a treadmill with all of the bells and whistles, you can find a perfectly good machine for walking and light jogging...and sometimes running at the upper end of the price range.
To make it easier for you to choose, we've selected the top treadmills brands below, as well as some standout models from each. This should help you select the best treadmill for your needs.
Here are the best models when it comes to treadmills in the $500 to $1000 range. They will give you the biggest bang for your buck. We start with our top selection and give you a few other top treadmills to choose from.
#1: Horizon T101
Horizon Fitness has a good model lineup with great features for the money, and the T101 is one of their top sellers for good reason.
PROS: Easy Folding, Good Incline, Built-In Speakers, Advanced Cushioning, Solid Warranty
#2: ProForm Sport 7.5
ProForm dominates the $500-$1000 range with a number of great models to choose from with features you expect to find on much pricier treadmills
PROS: Incline, Large Belt, Powerful Motor, Entertainment/Web, iFit, Folding, Tons of Workouts
#3: NordicTrack C990
Although most of NordicTrack's lineup is in the $1000-$2000 range, they do have a few good models that are worth a look here.
PROS: Incline, Large Belts, Powerful Motor, Entertainment/Web, iFit, Tons of Workouts
#4: Sole F63
A leader in the mid-price range, this one is an incredible value when it's on sale for under $1000.
PROS: Large Belt, Powerful Motor, Good Incline, Durable Construction, Bluetooth Workout Tracking, Easy Folding, Good Warranty
Those are going to be the best treadmills in the $500-$1000 range as far as value offered, features and capabilities.
Keep in mind that these are all great brands, so if you see an up-level model that is more appealing to you than our top picks above, by all means go for it if it is within your budget.
For example, the Horizon Adventure 3 is also under $1000, as are several other ProForm models. Just because they didn't make the list doesn't mean they aren't great treadmills as well.
In addition to these there are several great brands that only offer one model in the price category, such as the LifeSpan TR1200i.
So take a look at LifeSpan and Yowza, which has three models under $1000, as well.
