Specifically designed for smaller spaces, home-based treadmills come complete with technologically advanced software and easy to use controls that allow you to adjust your speed and incline at the touch of a button.
The beauty of these treadmills is that they allow you to reach your fitness goals without stepping foot inside a gym. Besides the speed and incline capabilities, these treadmills now come with iFit compatibility, which takes your fitness to the next level, giving you access to an ever-expanding library of workouts, Google Maps training routes and automatic stats tracking.
You can also go with the treadmill that features 6 Personal Trainer Workouts. These programs are designed by certified trainers and take the guesswork out of your workout by automatically adjusting the speed and incline of the treadmill for increased intensity, allowing you to get in a great workout.
Easy to use, treadmills provide a great way to work out on a daily basis – whether you are walking or running, using the incline for a more intense calorie burn or just trying to meet your 10,000 step goal at the end of a long day.
