The treadmills in this test range in price from $899 to $2299 and our tester puts them to the test to find the models that:

  • are easiest to use
  • accurately meet their claimed speeds.

We also recruit the expert opinion of Dr Lee Wallace, a triathlete and sport and exercise lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney to give an expert assessment of each treadmill. 

Our interactive comparison tool includes measurements, specifications and features for each treadmill. Our recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.
