CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

The overall score is made up of ease of use (50%), expert evaluation (30%) and performance (20%).

Performance score View more details.

We test how closely the treadmills meet their claimed speed at 12km/h.

Ease of use View more details.

Our tester assesses; noise at lowest and highest speed, the control panel, controls, instructions, quick-start functionality, folding up and unfolding as well as moving. Assembly of each treadmill isn't scored but comments are made in the good and bad points.

Expert evaluation score View more details.

Dr Lee Wallace, a triathlete and a sport and exercise lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney gives his expert opinion on the build quality, running platform properties, safety and user options of each treadmill. He also observes someone running on the treadmill to see if could cause injury or a negative impact on the body.
