What's the Best Home Treadmill?
Are you looking for a runner's high — that burst of exhilaration and subsequent deep relaxation that comes from running — but want the convenience of an indoor home workout?
At G&G Fitness, we love treadmills. We love the freedom of going for a run or a hike without going outside. We love being able to adjust the incline so we can work the different muscle groups. In general, a steeper incline works the glutes while a flatter incline targets the quads more, but any workout you do on a treadmill is guaranteed to torch calories. We love that treadmills give you all the cardio benefits of jogging or running — mental and physical — without the potential damage to joints that can come from running outside on concrete.
We love the sheer convenience of treadmills! No need to wake up at five and go out into the dark and cold when you can just go downstairs and use your treadmill whenever it's convenient.
But with so many choices, how do you know which is the best treadmill for you? Lace up your sneakers and let's take a closer look! G&G Fitness Equipment has been in the game since 1990, and we know a thing or two about treadmills.
Best Treadmills for Convenience
If you're looking for a treadmill that fits the bill for a smaller home gym, we love the Life Fitness F3 Treadmill. It's got all the features that make Life Fitness such a popular brand worldwide, and it's fantastically durable. But it's also foldable, so it can easily be rolled to a storage area — not for too long, though, as you do want to keep using it. The F3 has a great heart rate monitor and offers a simple, streamlined design with an easy-to-use console.
Life Fitness is one of the world's best-known manufacturers of treadmills and other high-quality fitness equipment, a brand you're sure to see at both high-end gymnasiums and home gyms. So when they make a treadmill that folds and is easy to store, it's worth paying attention to. G&G offers other foldable treadmill options, too. The Matrix TF30, for example, is another foldable standout — it offers outstandingly smooth jogging cushioning to protect your knees and a highly durable frame.

Its Ultimate Deck features a heavy-duty frame and industrial-grade cushions for a well-supported run. Its exclusive Johnson Drive System constantly recalibrates so you can stay in perfect rhythm and you don't lose form — all-important when attempting to stay injury-free. It's quiet, and your workout won't ever be disrupted by sudden, alarming surges or slowdowns — which can be unpleasant and potentially unsafe. The Matrix T50 is elegantly designed, too. Its curvy contemporary design guarantees that it will look good in any home. When it comes to motivation for a workout, design can help, after all. So can the T50's excellent Matrix console, which provides a range of entertainment options. Matrix treadmills are among the world's most popular, so you can rest assured they're all great choices.
The Precor TRM 445 is at the high end of the Precor series, with an impact control system, horizontal shock-absorption, and many other benefits. It's spectacularly sensitive and cushioned, so if you're dealing with knee injuries, it may be the treadmill for you.
