Read This Before You Buy - Commercial Treadmill

Commercial Treadmill

When you don't have time to go to the gym or a place where you can go for a stroll, investing in a treadmill is a terrific idea. However, purchasing a treadmill is different from utilizing one in a gym because it is more expensive and requires additional space in your home.

Before making a treadmill purchase decision

Before making a treadmill purchase decision, we as a fitness equipment supplier advise that you take these aspects into account.


After deciding to purchase a commercial treadmill for gym, you must decide how much you are willing to spend on a treadmill. The best treadmill should be purchased at a fair price, without being overcharged. The amenities that treadmills offer play a large role in how much they cost. Consider making an investment in a high-quality treadmill because it will be convenient to use and durable.

Warranty / Delivery / Set-up

The manufacturer's warranty is a good indicator of a treadmill's quality. Look for a lifetime guarantee on the frame and motor, or at least one that lasts at least 10 years. The typical guarantee for treadmill electronics is 5 years, plus a 2-year parts and labor warranty.

Before making a purchase, find out how much delivery will cost as this is not included in the price of the machine. Make sure that assistance is included in the service because assembling the pieces will also require assistance. Make sure you also have after-sales support and readily available parts.

Space and Size

A treadmill will occupy a large amount of room. It is strongly advised that you measure your home's space before making a purchase. There are also folding treadmills, but these take up space as well. Since treadmills are heavy, moving one is difficult. The space in your house or gym, your size, and how you want to use the machine all play a role in choosing the ideal treadmill size.

Other Features

Make sure the control panel is both easily accessible and usable while exercising. Apart from this, think about whether the treadmill has additional features like an MP3 player port or adjustable speed and incline to make the workout more challenging!


This factor is crucial since the treadmill should be strong enough to support your weight if you are a larger person. In order to get a fair estimate while examining the user weight rating, it is advisable to deduct 20 kg. The weight capability of home treadmill motors is up to 135 kilos.


You should choose a treadmill that can go up to 10 mph or faster if you intend to run on it frequently. With each footfall, the belt shouldn't move, and the running bed should be able to absorb shock. Additionally, the drive motor's horsepower has a direct impact on the effectiveness of workouts. Therefore, before you purchase one, be sure you are well informed of the horsepower and motor specifications.

Belt Size

Running or walking will be done on a treadmill. Therefore, it's crucial that the equipment operates smoothly and not jerkily in order to be safe. It's crucial that the belt's dimensions be at least 48 inches long and 18 inches wide. For taller folks (those over 6 feet tall), the best belt size for jogging or walking is 54 inches.


When you run or walk on the treadmill, the frame shouldn't sway, and the treadmill shouldn't vibrate.

Maximum weight rating

If you are a larger person, take this into account. It also shows how sturdy the treadmill is. For a realistic estimate, take into account the maximum user weight rating (which is optimistic) and deduct roughly 50 pounds.
