Deciding whether or not to buy a smart treadmill? We understand that buying a treadmill can be a big financial decision, but there are a number of reasons why treadmills are worth the price on the tag and how they can be a great long-term investment.

From improved mental and physical wellbeing to low impact workouts and convenience, investing in a smart treadmill is a great way to achieve your fitness goals, lead a healthier lifestyle and workout from the comfort of your own home. The five top reasons to invest in a smart treadmill include:

Achieving Your Fitness Goals

Having a treadmill is an excellent way to enhance your fitness levels and work towards your fitness goals. With adjustable speeds and heights, smart treadmills are suitable for all fitness levels, so whether you are a beginner starting out with your exercise journey, or you are an individual who has been training at a high level for years, a treadmill is the perfect exercise equipment for you.

With a treadmill, you can work towards your fitness goals regardless of external factors, such as poor weather conditions. Those who regularly exercise outside will understand how the UK weather can impede on your workouts and progress, especially during the winter months. However, having a smart treadmill in your own home means you can continue to workout even during bad weather spells.

Low Impact Exercise Options

Running or walking outdoors can have quite a high impact on your joints due to the hard surfaces you are exercising on. However, smart treadmills are designed with shock absorption, reducing the pressure and strain on your knees and ankles when walking or running.

In a study, the Sports Health also found that runners have a shorter stride when running on a treadmill compared to outside, which also results in less impact on knees, ankles and hips.

Gain Health Benefits

There are a number of physical health benefits that can be achieved through regular use of a smart treadmill, including:

- improved cardiovascular health

- improved sleep

- boosted immunity

- reduced risk of cancer according to studies

As well as improving physical health, there are also a number of mental health benefits that can be achieved through regular exercise such as boosted mood and reduced symptoms of stress and anxiety.


Treadmills are definitely worth the money when it comes to convenience. As well as removing any travel travel time associated making them the perfect option if you only have a small amount of space available in your home.

Cost Effective

Although the initial purchase of a treadmill can seem quite high, it can save you money in the long run and should be viewed as a long-term investment. Having a treadmill in your own home means you can save money on your monthly gym membership, whilst also saving on travel costs, such as fuel or public transport fares, required when going to the gym. This can be a significant saving if there are multiple people in your household.
