Our Recommendations for the Best Treadmills for Homes in 2022

Walking, jogging or running can help you build fitness if done regularly. But our busy schedule can sometimes prevent us from going to gyms like Equinox. Even going out for a run (or walk) may not always happen when it’s raining or when it’s too hot outside. This is why owning a treadmill makes a lot of sense for a lot of people. If you’re in the market for one but aren’t sure exactly which one to get, this guide gives you a list of our top recommendations for the best home treadmills for 2022.

What You Should Know Before Buying a Treadmill

Here are some important considerations before buying a new treadmill:

1. Your home’s ceiling clearance.

Add 15 inches to your height and determine if your ceiling is high enough. So if you’re 6 foot 2 inches, that’s 74 inches + 15 inches, which means your ceiling should be much higher than 87 inches.

2. Space for your treadmill.

You’ll need at least 3 feet of free space behind the treadmill and at least 1 foot in front and in each side.

3. Invest in a treadmill mat.

This is especially true if you’re going to put your treadmill on a 2nd or 3rd floor so you don’t end up causing noise to the people downstairs.

Now that we’ve got those out of the way, let’s talk about our product recommendations:

NordicTrack Commercial 1750

The  NordicTrack 1750 has always been one of the best treadmills around and its latest version has a tilting 14-inch touchscreen monitor and a quiet incline motor that adjusts on its own.

The deck size is 22-by-60-inch deck and the machine is very stable. The cushioning is a bit bouncy but you can always adjust it.

Horizon Fitness 7.0 AT Treadmill

Horizon 7.0 AT has features that give you more control of your workouts. You get training options built in the machine but you can also easily connect to an iPad or Android device. It has thumb dials on the hand grips that let you increase or decrease your speed and incline. Instead of its low price tag, the 7.0 AT is surprisingly steady and does not shake. Plus its compact size makes it ideal for small spaces.

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7603 Treadmill

The Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7603 is a budget-friendly treadmill with over 1,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. It’s very cheap (less than $500!) but there are things you need to know before ordering it right away – it has the skinniest belt and its max speed is only 9 mph. Moreover, you have to get off the machine and flip a lever in order to adjust the incline. Other than these things, it’s a reliable and smooth treadmill, that gives you great value for your money.

Sole F80 Treadmill

The SoleF80 doesn’t have the same fancy touchscreen as the high end treadmills on this list and its motor is also a bit small. However, its durable frame can handle individuals up to 375 lbs, and it also has a soft underfoot (with no stability issues whatsoever). It also has rail-mounted control buttons for incline and speed.

LifeSpan TR5500iM Folding Treadmill

The latest LifeSpan TR5500iM comes with a 10-inch touchscreen console. It’s still compact which is great if you have a small space, and its simplistic design has been retained. The touchscreen lets you add smarts by “mirroring” it to your phone’s screen, allowing you to watch videos on a larger display.

Here’s a video review of the TR5500iM so you can have a closer look at its specs and features.
