Treadmills are the ideal way to get in a walking or jogging workout without going outside. Especially in this day and age of coronavirus lockdown, exercising indoors, which is normally a personal preference, seems to be a decision that’s been made for you. Even when the lockdown is relaxed (or if it had never occurred in the first place) treadmills are a great way to exercise when the weather is bad or when leaving the house for an hour or two just isn’t an option. But now you’re probably wondering which treadmill to buy for home use. It’s true there are a lot of different models on the market, but we’ve narrowed it down to a list that we believe are great value for their money.
