Best treadmills: which device to choose according to your goals and budget?

Choosing a mat for running depends above all on the objective (sports training, fitness, physical maintenance, weight loss, rehabilitation, etc.), the intended use (occasional, regular, intensive, multi-person) , and the budget that we are prepared to devote to it. Treadmills can be found on the market at all prices. From the entry level around 200 to 500 € to the very high end exceeding 5,000 or even 10,000 €, the range is wide.

It is quite obvious that the best treadmills in the world are high-end and very expensive devices because they are designed for intensive use and they offer the best in terms of quality, sturdiness. , power, etc. Some models are even designed to be luxury items. But this kind of material is not accessible to everyone and you can train very well, even at a high level, on a less expensive device. Our goal was above all to offer devices according to a given budget, hence our classification in 3 categories of devices.

  • Entry-level treadmills:for occasional use and beginners
     
    Inexpensive and accessible to almost any budget, they are ideal for the beginner or for people who don’t want to invest a lot of money in a device that will not be used intensively. They are intended for occasional use and are sufficient for moderate, low-intensity sports training (occasional to regular sportsman wishing to progress and develop his endurance or simply run at home in winter), for fitness and physical maintenance, for lose weight or relax. These mats offer the bare minimum in terms of area, speed, engine power, stability and functions. The quality, reliability and performance of these devices can vary a lot from one manufacturer or one reference to another. We identify devices that seem to us of sufficient quality and systematically eliminate questionable brands or devices whose certain characteristics do not meet our specifications. We have also selected only motorized belts.
  • Mid-range treadmills:for regular to intensive use
     
    These are the best-selling. They are designed for more serious sports training (from regular sportsmen to professionals) and regular to intensive use, alone or with the family. They are built to last, provide a quality foundation and are generally reliable. Their characteristics can vary a lot from one device to another. Their price, very variable, depends essentially on the characteristics of the carpet (surface area, motor power, speed, incline, functions offered by the console). You have to be very vigilant and choose the right carpet according to your objectives and not just the price (see our advice for choosing your carpet ).
  • Top-of-the-range sewing mats:for intensive and / or professional use
     
    Robust, efficient and reliable, they are designed for intensive use (intensive daily training, use by the family, etc.), semi-professional or professional (gyms). gym, hotels, fitness institutes, physiotherapists, etc.). These devices offer high quality (structure, power, strength, reliability, stability) and advanced functions (large inclination and speed allowing intensive training including interval training, sophisticated console, various gadgets, ergonomics, etc.). They offer the guarantee of great satisfaction. They are sure values.

 

The criteria used in our selection of the top treadmills 2020

We evaluate each carpet according to its characteristics for its price range (entry, middle, top of the range) and select those that seem to us to be the best value for money. Among these criteria, there are technical characteristics, console, accessories and additional features. See the criteria to take into account when choosing your treadmill .

  • The technical characteristics:we take into account the surface of the carpet, the engine power, the maximum speed, the inclination, the structure (weight / stability, ease of storage, presence or not of level compensators), the maximum user weight , cushioning.
  • The console: thisis the device’s on-board computer. We take it into account in the evaluation (number of programs, connectivity, ergonomics, virtual reality functions, etc.)
  • Additional accessories and functions:fan, bottle cage, remote control, surface for placing a tablet, speakers, USB socket, MP3 player, TV screen, etc. are assets that we use in our choice.

Be careful, depending on your goals, some characteristics will be more important than others. Our selection of the top treadmills in 2020 is of course only a suggestion according to generic criteria.
