The best treadmills of 2019

Getting and staying in shape is vital to our mind and body health. Every doctor and scientist agrees that getting in physical activity every day reduces the risk of developing several diseases, helps manage weight, elevates your mood and promotes better sleep. The problem is between work, family, and chores; it can be tough to squeeze in even a few minutes for a workout. That’s why owning a treadmill can be so helpful.

If you’re not able to make it to the gym or the weather doesn’t let you get outside, having a treadmill in your home makes it easy to get in that recommended 30 minutes of activity. But not everyone has the space for a home gym and you don’t necessarily want a clunky piece of equipment in your bedroom or living room. Guess what? There are plenty of options that are high-tech and convenient. Here are the top ones.

There are also 12 preset training plans and a heart rate sensor to help you burn calories more effectively.

Friends might start coming over to your house instead of going to the gym. Why? Well, this treadmill basically comes with a built-in personal trainer. Yup, there are 20 workouts designed by a certified personal trainer available to help you achieve your fitness goals, plus you can stream studio sessions with world-class trainers who control the treadmill’s incline and speed in real-time. There are even cross-training options like yoga and full-body sculpting. You can also create your own custom workout using Google Maps to make it feel like you’re running anywhere in the world. When not in use, you can fold it up and tuck it away until you’re next heart-pumping session.

This treadmill might not have all the bells and whistles as some of the others, but it gets the job done for jogger or walker. With speeds up to six miles per hour, you can easily work up a sweat with preset training modes or create a custom workout. Plus, you can pair it with the FitShow app to keep track of your activity. The best part is the track isn’t super wide, nor is it very long. That makes it easy to fold up and store in nearly any room when not in use.
