This post is entirely dedicated to exploring the popular most treadmill brands available within the United States market sphere. When it comes to reliable or trustworthy treadmill brands, many components need to be kept into consideration aside from the general appearance and the overall price.

Regardless of whether you may be a PRO in the world of treadmills or even are an amateur, this post will help you get to know more about not only the components required before purchasing a treadmill but also the best treadmill brands in the USA.

Let’s get to the point, then shall we!


Since the treadmill is a fully mechanical machine, it is entirely essential to be aware of what is under the hood of the device itself, just like in the form of cars. The incorporated horsepower is a vital element, which needs to be taken into consideration to be able to understand the functioning of the selected treadmill fully.

A 1.5 motor integrated horsepower is capable enough to accommodate the needs of a majority of the treadmill users; although, a 1.5 is the bare minimum power offered. Higher the horsepower motor rates extended, more advanced will the workout speed sessions be provided by the treadmill.

The motor horsepower capabilities are directly proportional to the price range of the treadmill model being offered via manufacturers. Users whom of which are moderately sized, in search of a treadmill that caters to walking, jogging and continuous sprinting intervals should opt for 2.5-3.0 motor horsepower. Whereas, users of which carry a significant amount of body weight are recommended to purchase treadmills integrated with 3.0 or more.

Applications and Additional features offered

In today’s ever dynamic world of technology, the newest treadmill models now have the integrated technology of allowing the fitness machine to connect to fitness based or affiliated smart applications. Fitness applications incorporated inside treadmill workout technology not only allow users the ability to be guided by professionals in the industry but also help with optimizing motivation levels. Already preset applications include but are not entirely limited to iFit, automatically preset treadmill workouts, monitors allowing heartbeat analysis during workouts as well as LCD screens for allowing to play video.

Warranty Offered

Warranty is another prominent component which needs to be taken into consideration when trying to analyze a particular treadmill manufacturer. It is merely common sense to figure out that a well made, high-quality model will feature a more extended warranty life. Many treadmills I have come across can offer lifetime worth warranty on the frame, 25 years warranty for the motor. While anything below the ten years protection range should be analyzed carefully before any purchases.

Individual components such as labour for treadmills is offered a comparatively lesser number of warranty years such as not more than two years, while Electronic elements of the treadmill are protected via a usual five years worth of warranty by high-quality manufacturers.

Now that you are fully aware of the components that go into analyzing treadmill brands and manufacturers let’s move on to discussing some of the top treadmill brands in the USA. Keep on reading!

One of the models released via the Woodway under the label of ‘The Curve’ when released, attracted a significant amount of attention via the public population.

While some premium highly advanced, fully equipped treadmill models such as the TRM811 or the TRM 835 can cost a significant amount of $7,395 as well as $8,495; therefore Precor is a manufacturer I would recommend to prospective employers with a higher price budget.
