Best Folding Treadmills in 4 Price Categories

Our top picks for best folding treadmills are more competitive than ever now that the quality of foldable treadmills has improved considerably over the last few years. They are basically the same machines as their non-folding sibling models, with the addition of shock absorber lifting mechanisms that make storing one of these machines away post workout  a breeze. Best of all, these easy folding features do not appreciably add much to the price.

Folding Treadmills under $500

It’s tough to build a quality treadmill for under $500. The motors are too small, the frames are weak, and the running decks are short and narrow.   Still, if money is tight and you want to get into shape, there are some decent choices.

We don't have any particular one that we recommend, but look at Weslo, Exerpeutic, Sunny Health and Confidence, all well-known brands with decent treadmills.
