Running is a simple and often fun way to tone muscles, improve bone health, reduce stress and of course lose weight. On average, a person burns 100 calories for every mile they run, according to the Mayo Clinic. The only problem is that getting outside for a run isn't always easy or practical. It can also be a drag, especially during the often cold, wet and windy winter months. That's where home treadmills come in. These treadmill deals let you get the same benefits as running outside without ever having to leave the comfort of your home.

There are a few things to consider when buying your dream treadmill like space availability, fitness needs and budget. We'll regularly update this hub with information on the latest in stock and available discounted treadmills to help you make the right choice. If you want to get more out of your runs, be sure to check out our guides to the best running watches and the best running shoes.

Treadmill deals

Which treadmill deal is right for you?

What should you look out for with treadmill deals? First consider how much space you have, your budget and any features you need, like speed or incline options. When looking for treadmills in stock bear in mind that the more basic treadmills don’t tend to speed or incline, but they are a good starter running machine for people new to running and home gym equipment.

Live in an apartment or short on space? Foldable treadmills might be worth considering or you can also find running machines in stock that are super compact and lightweight so they don’t overwhelm your home. 

Your height will also play a role in the size of belt you’ll need. If you’re over 6 feet (182 cm) tall, then you’ll want one at least 48” by 52” for walking and 54” for running. If you want a treadmill that fits under the desk so you can work while you walk, then a small machine will be the best investment. Another important factor is noise: Check out specs and reviews to find out whether your machine is relatively quiet for a better exercise experience.
