Top 3 Best Treadmills under $300

Treadmills are a great way to get fit in the comfort of your own home and are suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels – start off with walking and build yourself up to jogging or running.

If you like the idea of a home treadmill but haven’t got the space for a large heavy-duty treadmill or the expense that those larger treadmills cost, here’s a look at 3 of the top best treadmills each retailing for under $300 (prices correct at time of writing).  All 3 treadmills come highly rated from people who have bought and used one:

1.       Confidence GTR Power Pro Motorized Electric Treadmill
2.       Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill
3.       Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill

Coming in at number 2 on the list of top treadmills under $300 is the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill.  With around just $15 price difference between this Weslo and its close rival the Confidence GTR Treadmill, this is another impressive low-cost treadmill.  Key features include:

·         Electric home treadmill.
·         2-position manual incline (1.5% and 6%).
·         Blue tinted LCD display shows workout stats including, speed, time distance, pulse, and calories burned.
·         6 Personal trainer designed workouts.
·         Touch button controls.
·         Thumb sensor, Heart rate monitor.
·         2.25 hp motor.

·         Comfort cushion deck.
·         Tread belt:  16” x 50”.
·         Book/tablet holder.
·         Overall dimensions:  64.5” long x 29” wide x 55.5” high.
·         Folding design for storage.
·         User weight capacity:  275 lbs.

·         Weight of treadmill:  115 lbs.

The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill has less workout programs and incline levels than the Confidence GTR Power Pro Treadmill, but does have a slightly more powerful motor and speed range.  With very little difference in price between these 2 models, you just have to decide whether you prefer more workout programs for the variety and challenge with the Confidence model or the better motor and speed range of the Weslo model.

Coming in at number 3 on the list of top treadmills under $300 is the Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill.  It’s not electric powered like the first 2 treadmills, but it’s a very good manual treadmill and retails online at around half the price of the above Confidence and Weslo treadmills.  Key features include:

·         Manual home treadmill for a self-powered workout.
·         Heavy duty weighted flywheel.
·         Tread belt:  41” x 13”.
·         Single-button electronics displays workout stats including speed, time, distance, calories, scan (powered by 2x AA batteries included).
·         Water bottle holder.
·         Folding design for storage.
·         Overall dimensions:  46.5” long x 21.1” wide x 50” high.
·         Transport wheels for portability.
·         User weight capacity:  up to 250 lbs.
·         Weight of treadmill:  45 lbs

For such a low price, the Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill is a steal.  Being a manual treadmill, your walking/jogging action powers the treadmill for a more effective workout and you won’t have the cost of electricity that you would have with the first 2 treadmills in this list.



See what customers who have bought either the Confidence GTR Power Pro or Weslo Cadence G 5.9 or Phoenix 98510 Treadmills have to say about them:

B.S.:
“I love my Confidence GTR Power Pro Motorized Electric Treadmill.  It was just what I was looking for and a great treadmill for the price.  I wanted an electric treadmill that wasn’t too big and that would help me while recovering from ankle surgery.  With this treadmill I can monitor how long and far I can walk for my physical therapist.  It beats worrying about going out for a walk with the risk of not being able to get home if I start having some pain.  I’m starting off with 10-15 minutes of slow walking on this treadmill and am aiming to increase my speed and time.  The treadmill is easy to fold up and put away when not in use.”

J.K.:
“The Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill is very adequate for my needs.  It’s good quality and very good value.  It’s well constructed and should last a long time.”

K.M.:
“The Phoenix 98510 Easy-Up Manual Treadmill is an excellent treadmill for the price.  It arrived on time and was very easy to assemble.  The treadmill folds up easily.  I’m 45 year old woman and weigh 215 lbs and I use this treadmill at a slow pace of around 2.2 mph.  Being a manual treadmill, you have to catch your pace to make it move and make sure you always hold on to the handlebars.”
