Treadmill Below $1500
Treadmill category from $1,000 to $1,500 is very hard to judge. Majority of mid-price treadmill are fall into this category. Whenever we talk about this price range, we have to consider whether its better cushioning, powerful motor to withstand continue pounding, stronger decks, and build with commercial grade components or just overall a great value for the price. For us, great value for money is not the main consideration anymore. With the money paid we have higher expectation for quality and not only how many features offer by the treadmill. We will be more focus on durability, reliability, warranty and stability which leads us to a smooth and enjoyable run.
