Best Indoor Treadmill + 10 Best Treadmills for Home

A curated and reviewed list of the best indoor treadmill and the best treadmills for home use, featuring the top reviewed & rated portable, foldable and lightweight treadmills — plus affordable options under $500.

Finding the right indoor treadmill for home use, as we’ve just experienced first-hand, is a rather laborious task and requires quite a bit of prior knowledge. There’s not only a handful of treadmills and gym equipment brands, but also a number of product specs to look out for when browsing. We assume since you clicked to view this list, that you’re looking for an indoor treadmill that can be easily stored when not in use, can be moved, folded or rotated to save floor space, features a variety of workout customization options (as any good treadmill should), and one that’s affordably priced with respect to the features it offers. Oh, and one that’s highly reviewed by customers and rated as a ‘top’ product by fitness magazines. Since, in our opinion, that’s what it takes to be the best indoor treadmill, we considered all of these qualities. Below you’ll find some of the best and top rated treadmills for home use, from brands such as LifeSpan Fitness, 3G Cardio, ProForm and more. Virtually of the selected treadmills are built with space saving features, such as a lift assist and folding base, and still offer a quality, customizable workout.

Top Reviewed, Space Saving, Fold Flat Treadmill.
By: 3G Cardio

Editor's Note

This is one of the best treadmills we found based on the qualities we were curating for. Not only does it include a variety of speed and incline options, but it can also be folded flat and stored under a bed or behind a closet. Even though it’s designed to be easily stored, it doesn’t sacrifice in quality or function – plus it’s relatively well priced. When folded flat to the floor, it has a relatively low and manageable height of only 9.75″. Moreover, with a capability of reaching 11mph maximum speed and a 15% maximum incline, it provides a handful of customized options. In our opinion, this treadmill is one of the best, if not the best indoor treadmill for home use.

LifeSpan TR3000i Folding Treadmill.
By: LifeSpan Fitness

Editor's Note

This indoor treadmill is built with the simple to lift and easy to lower, EZfold technology, which utilizes a hydraulic shock to assist in folding and unfolding. Super handy and very space efficient, allowing it to be stored flat, below a bed, or on its side, in a closet. This treadmill also features 15 incline levels and a speed range of 0.5 to 12 mph. Additionally, the 20 x 56 inch running surface features 8 impact-absorbing compression shocks, and the 6″ Blue backlit LCD displays time, calories, distance, steps, heart rate, speed, and incline level. Another overall great pick for an indoor treadmill.

Top Rated, Highly Reviewed Elite Runner Treadmill with Ortho Flex Shock™ Suspension System and Fully Customizable LED Dashboard to Adjust Incline, Speed, Time, Heart Rate and Much More.
By: 3G Cardio

Editor's Note

This is not your average indoor treadmill, as it’s slightly larger and not built with a space saving, folding design. However, we thought it’d be helpful to include at least one treadmill that can still definitely be used at home, but is designed with commercial grade specs. Click through to read more about why we selected this treadmill as one of the top indoor treadmills on our list.

Bowflex TC100 Tread Climber Indoor Treadmill.
By: Bowflex

Editor's Note

Although this is technically a tread climber treadmill (i.e., not a standard runner’s treadmill), it’s a favorite of ours as a solid pick for an indoor treadmill for two reasons: one, the short tread platform design is shorter than average treadmills, meaning it’ll take up less space; and, two, because it’s an innovative piece of machinery that combines a stepper and a treadmill for a more intense workout. In short, it’s compact and will certainly give a good workout.
