Xterra Fitness TR150

This treadmill is less expensive than others, but its lack of incline and flimsy feel make it a tough sell. Read More

Pros

  • Easy to assemble
  • Supportive deck

Cons

  • No incline
  • Low speed range
  • Feels flimsy

You’re ready to go for your run—and it’s rainy. Or it’s cold. Or there’s an air advisory outside. So often, great run intentions get squashed by gray weather. Unless, of course, you have a personal treadmill. A treadmill at home gives you a comfortable option for following through on your exercise goals, giving you a comfortable option for a walk or run, regardless of the weather.

When choosing a treadmill, first consider whether you intend to run or walk on it. If you only plan on walking, you may be happy with a lower-cost option. For runners, a solid treadmill with a faster motor is a must. If hills are part of your ideal workout, choose a treadmill with an incline function. An incline, either electronically controlled or manual, increases both the cost and weight of the treadmill. If ease of storage is really important to you, an incline function can make it more difficult to tuck your treadmill away. Finally, if you intend to use your treadmill with a standing desk, consider one that has removable handrails. With the handrails uninstalled, treadmills will restrict your speed, usually topping out under 4 mph (6.5 kmh).

To help you find the right folding treadmill, we dug through thousands of reviews for a variety of options available online. Based on our research, these are the best folding treadmills you can get on Amazon right now.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

NordicTrack Commercial 1750

NordicTrack’s Commercial 1750 is the whole package. It offers speeds that range between 0.5 mph to 12 mph (0.8 kmh to 19 kmh) and an incline range of -3% to 15% (yes, this one goes downhill). The generous belt measures 22 inches wide and 68 inches long—the most spacious we’ve tested—and is powered by a 3.75 continuous-duty horsepower (CHP) motor, which means it can be used at high speeds for a long period of time. It can support up to 300 pounds—about standard for a full-size, quality treadmill.

Our last fitness editor found both running and walking on it to be a joy. Its sturdy deck has an ideal springiness-to-firmness ratio that makes joints feel protected even at high-octane sprints—without making you feel like you’re going to fly off the deck if you take too enthusiastic a step. The console has a 10-inch touchscreen with additional tactile buttons to control speed, incline and decline, and to turn on its fan. Using it feels intuitive, and its metrics on the LCD display show your distance, pace, speed, incline, calories burned, and time, which you can swap to “time remaining” in guided workouts.

Pros

  • Great range of speed and incline

  • Automatic speed and incline changes

  • iFit classes are lots of fun

Cons

  • Sometimes internet connection fails

  • iFit can feel disorganized

Product image of OMA 1012EB Folding Treadmill
OMA 1012EB Folding Treadmill

The OMA 1012EB offers a larger running platform than other treadmills, measuring 17.7 by 48 inches. With almost two extra inches in width, this much running area allows for more variance in your stride. The handlebars are adjustable and easy to remove for storage. Reviewers commented on the sturdiness and quality of the treadmill, with heavier folks noting that there’s no flexing of the steel frame while walking. The motor, at 2.25 horsepower, offers a maximum speed of 8.7 mph (14 kmh).

The buttons for operating the treadmill are located on both the arms and the undersides of the arms, causing a bit of confusion. There’s a place for a tablet, though the treadmill itself does not come with an LCD screen—nor does it include any incline settings. Shoppers reported a wide mix of interactions with OMA’s customer service, ranging from a complete lack of response to very helpful service.

Pros

  • Wider running area

  • Easy to set up

  • Adjustable handlebar

Cons

  • 8.7 mph maximum

  • No incline setting

  • Limited warranty

Product image of Goplus 2-in-1 Folding Treadmill
Goplus 2-in-1 Folding Treadmill

The Goplus 2-in-1 Folding Treadmill stands out as a remarkably quiet option. Several reviews commented on this, noticing that the treadmill couldn’t be heard in the next room over. When one reviewer asked her downstairs neighbour, in a thin-walled apartment building, for feedback, he said it sounded like a dryer running. Several shoppers were impressed with how compact the treadmill got when folded down; measuring in at 52 by 27 by 5 inches, it’s easy to fit under a bed. To fold the treadmill down completely, the side arms need to be unscrewed and removed, so that process can be a bit of an ordeal. If you intend to use the faster speeds (which require the side arms to be installed) and plan to fold the treadmill away each day, this treadmill will not meet your needs.

Without the side arms installed, the treadmill’s speed tops out at around, at most, 2.5 mph (4 kmh). Taller users, at six feet and up, have said the running length was sufficient but the width was a bit tight. The running area is measured at 40 by 16 inches. There are no controls on the treadmill—only a security clip. Instead, it comes with a handheld remote. While some reviewers don’t seem bothered by the remote, others say the small size and slippery nature of the remote can seem like a safety risk. Another common complaint is the lack of an adjustable incline. The treadmill also requires a larger 20-amp outlet, like you’d need for a stove or a clothes dryer, which can be a dealbreaker.

Pros

  • Fits under the bed

  • Remarkably quiet

  • Includes remote

Cons

  • No incline setting

  • Handles have to be unscrewed

  • Slower than expected

Product image of NordicTrack T Series Treadmill
NordicTrack T Series Treadmill

There’s a lot to love about the NordicTrack T Series Treadmill, and not just because it’s a beast of a machine. Weighing in at 200 pounds, the treadmill is certainly one of the heavier options on this list; it boasts a running deck of 20 by 50 inches. Luckily, at this weight, the folding mechanism has a gas-powered lift support to tilt the running area up, with a set of wheels to help you cart it off and out of the way. All that weight helps give the treadmill a sturdiness, as several reviewers note, even when running at higher speeds. The top speed for this treadmill is 10 mph (16 kmh). The steel frame has a warranty of ten years, with a two-year warranty on parts and one year to cover labour.

Speaking of labour, you might want to pay for in-home assembly on this one. Several reviewers commented on the difficulty of assembling the NordicTrack T Series, describing it as a two-person chore due to the weight and, in some cases, having issues with missing parts. When reviewers contacted customer service to get pieces replaced, many wound up stuck on hold for long periods of time or having unhelpful experiences with customer service.

Pros

  • Assisted lift to fold

  • Steel frame

  • 2-year warranty on parts

Cons

  • Tricky assembly

  • Questionable customer service

If you’re looking for a folding treadmill that offers reasonable tradeoff between convenient storage and a solid workout, the Xterra TR150 balances both nicely. It’s smaller and lighter than some, offering a 16-by-50-inch running surface and weighing 108 pounds. The treadmill is narrow enough to wheel through a standard door frame, but still long enough to accommodate various stride lengths. Several reviewers commented on the quietness of the treadmill, noticing that they could leave their television on a normal setting and still hear fine. The incline is adjustable, offering 1-degree, 1.5-degree, and 2-degree options with a mechanical adjustment.

The heart-rate monitor is a favourite feature for many, along with the programmable walk settings. The maximum speed on this treadmill is 10 mph (16 kmh). While most users were impressed with the quality, particularly at this price, some shoppers found that the plastics around the base cracked easily. Assembly is apparently pretty simple and straightforward.

Pros

  • Easy to assemble

  • Supportive deck

Cons

  • No incline

  • Low speed range

  • Feels flimsy

Sunny Health & Fitness SF-T7515

The Sunny Smart Treadmill has some great features, like gas-assisted fold-down and a countdown program that lets you set a desired time, speed, or calorie count. The incline range is impressive, offering 12 automatic settings, and the running area is reasonable at 49.5 by 16.5 inches. A steel alloy frame gives the treadmill some heft, weighing in at 124 pounds, with a maximum user weight of 240 pounds. The max speed is a little lighter than other treadmills, topping out at 8 mph.

Reviewers have said that assembly was straightforward and easy for them. Many shoppers experienced difficulty contacting customer support, however, relying on either Amazon’s return policy or an extended warranty purchase to resolve issues with the treadmill. Several users had issues with the running belt slipping and wearing. This treadmill comes with a longer warranty than most, offering three years of coverage, but purchasing an extra warranty on top of that might be a good idea.

Pros

  • Easy to assemble

  • Great for walking

Cons

  • Limited speed range

  • Narrow belt
