We generally don’t recommend treadmills that cost less than $1,000, simply because they don’t hold up. The frames and motors usually can’t take the abuse of running. This low-budget model offered on Amazon is an exception, however, because so many people buy it and love it – over 1,000 five-star reviews. Of course, to reach such a price point, there are a lot of compromises: the belt is the thinnest we’ve seen, the motor doesn’t go faster than 9 mph, and to adjust the tilt, you have to get off the machine and operate a lever under the deck. But, if you need a machine for an occasional jog when you can’t get out, or if you want a machine for walking on your days off, it’s hard to argue with what this machine offers at this price.
