  1. Just checked all these prices and I found that the Nero Pro treadmill is by far the cheapest treadmill here. I am not too familiar with the brand but from what I hear elsewhere they are decent enough as long as you don’t overdo and burn out the motor. The deck seems a bit narrow and the max speed of 10km per hour may be a bit slow also, but I guess they are some of the reasons for the best cheapest price. One question, is it easy to assemble or does it require several hours work?

    • Many thanks for your question, this treadmill will only take a few minutes to assemble as it is nearly ready to use straight out of the box. Best of luck, Peter

  2. I have used the Roger Black treadmill before and I can certainly say that this is one of the best treadmills I have ever used. I weigh a little over 100kg so and it was able to carry my long distance running without any issues whatsoever. You don’t even need all the 14 programs as there are 5 of them which I tend to use only and they give plenty of options that I need. Some of the cheap treadmills I have used before gave far too many problems with the deck belt slipping and a burning type smell from the motor so my preference would be to select a better brand and pay a little bit more to save hassle in the long term.

  3. Hi Peter, Great list of Cheap Treadmills and I am familiar with at least 4 of these brands. I actually have the Reebok ZR7 Treadmill and must say it is an incredible piece of equipment. The LED display is very easy to use and just makes your workout that bit easier as you can basically program your own workout. The running belt itself is very durable and I have had no issue with performance. It’s a great treadmill for the cheap price tag so for me I would recommend this for everyone else based on my personal experiences with it

    • That’s good to know so many thanks for sharing your feedback with the wider community, it is greatly appreciated. Regards, Peter

  4. It just so happens that I am newly in the market and finding it quite difficult to find reasonable reviews for budget priced treadmills – I want to avoid a cheap treadmill that have bad quality motors that wont last 12 months. I didn’t expect to see Reebok treadmills here and I would certainly be choosing either the Reebok GT40S Treadmill or the Reebok ZR7 Treadmill based on the options provided here, didn’t realise Argos stocked them either, plus they offer great warranty as well which I did not expect either

  5. Great article on cheap treadmills Peter! Although I always look at quality instead of price, sometimes it is not bad to look for cheap ones also as the quality is often good enough for my own personal needs. You mentioned some brands I know and although they are cheap they seem to have good warranties as back up which is a must. Didn’t realise that Argos stocked the Roger Black range – good to know as that one seems to tick off most of my boxes and that it the one I would most likely go for
