4 Treadmill Options From Roombldr

One of the most popular exercise equipment pieces found in a fitness room is a treadmill, which can have several awesome benefits and is a great place to start in a home fitness room design. You can also burn some serious calories when you factor in the incline feature into your workout, while also reducing the impact on your body (compared to running outside). Below are 4 awesome treadmill options we like from a few of our vendors.

Side note- if you are evaluating what fitness streaming options are available, check out our previous post for our recommendations on content choices for your fitness room.

Life Fitness Club Series Plus Treadmill

Life Fitness Club Series Plus Treadmill

Roombldr Insight: We like this piece because of its quality, sleek design, frame color choices, and console options. The “FlexDeck” cushioning system (springlike shock absorbers which reduce knee and joint stress by up to 30 percent more than non-cushioned surfaces) is as good as it gets when it comes to treadmill cushioning. It also has a very low profile and step-up height, which is good for lower ceiling heights. The commercial version (we can explain the differences) of this unit is the Integrity Series Treadmill, and is used by the most innovative and high use facilities in the world including Marriott and Planet Fitness. This piece is available in our 3D room design services.

Cascade Ultra Runner Treadmill

Roombldr Insight: As far as non-motorized slat tread treadmills go, this is one of the best on the market. Non-motorized curved treadmills are growing in popularity and can even have significantly higher heart rates and oxygen uptake variables compared with those using motorized treadmills. The magnetic resistance feature is cool and unique and great for interval training. Very space efficient design and the console is simple and intuitive, which means you aren’t paying for features you won’t use. It is also commercial rated and durable enough to be used in gyms and health clubs. Cascade has some of the best cardio products available for the price, and we like that they are constantly trying to innovate and make their products different, while keeping high standards in quality.

Echelon Stride S7 Commercial Treadmill

Roombldr Insight: One of the leaders in the “connected fitness” field, with access to over 40 daily live classes and also thousands of on-demand classes, which are engaging and fun. We like this piece because it is built for club usage, so the hardware is very durable (more so than other connected fitness brands) and designed for high use applications. The 32 inch touchscreen is awesome, one of the best we have seen. They have multiple cardio pieces including an interactive mirror.

Cybex R Series Treadmill

Roombldr Insight: Cybex treadmills are a direct result of extensive research into the biomechanics of running (we love their approach to creating products). The IS4 Intelligent Suspension System caters to runners by providing a gradual deflection progression leading to “soft” landing on a large portion of the tread area. It matches the mechanics of running— soft upon landing, firm in the middle and rigid at toe-off. Very sleek and modern looking design. Cybex offers a complete innovative catalogue of both strength and cardio products, most of which are available in our design software.
