Black Friday treadmill deals are ideal for anyone who has been longing for a way to work out at home. With these discounts, you’ll be able to secure a gym-standard piece of equipment and walk, run or sprint in the comfort of your own space. Treadmills are super popular as they offer versatility to your everyday exercise routine; you could even tick off your 10,000 steps per day goal as you take care of emails or talk on the phone. So whether you want to get into running to lose weight or just to work on your general fitness, we have all of the top picks for you.

However, what should you be looking out for with Black Friday treadmill deals? Well, it really depends on how much space you have to spare, how much you want to spend and how many features you want the equipment to have. 

If you need lots of speeds and incline options, then make sure whichever model you pick has these factored in. More basic treadmills might lack these features, but will be better suited to those on a tighter budget. If you’re short on space, then there are lots of treadmills that you can buy that are foldable. Meanwhile, others have compact measurements to stop them from completely taking over your living space. Check out our feature on home workout ideas to get more inspiration on how to fit exercise into your space.

With this round-up of Black Friday treadmill deals, you don’t need to search the internet in order to get an excellent price. Instead, you can find discounted prices that suit your budget and find out which retailers can offer you excellent discounts.

Which Black Friday treadmill deal is right for you?

Choosing a treadmill deal means that you need to consider a few things before you buy:

  • What’s your budget?  
  • How noisy is the machine?  
  • What size and horsepower is the motor?  
  • How big is the running belt?  
  • What’s the weight capacity? 

There are a number of practical things you should consider as you consider these treadmill deals to avoid picking up a machine that doesn’t suit you. The first of these is noise; if you live in an apartment block and have downstairs neighbors or need to minimize a commotion at any time of day, then look out for the least disruptive models. The size of the treadmill is crucial, with some models benefitting from a foldable design so that you can stash your equipment away when you’re done with working out. To get a better idea of the benefits of using this equipment check out our feature on using a treadmill vs running outside. 

The measurements of your machine are also important so that you can get the most out of your workout. You’ll need a running belt that is sized at least 48” by 18” for running and if you’re over 182cms (6ft) tall then you’ll need at least a 52” belt for walking, and a 54” one for running. If you want a machine you can slot under your desk so that you can walk and work, then a smaller treadmill will be your best bet.
