Want to keep up spring marathon training during the winter months, but hate running in the rain? Black Friday is the perfect time to finally invest in a treadmill.
Black Friday is officially on 24 November, but you can expect big deals in the week leading up to it – from the 17th. This is a prime period to grab discounted items, including big-ticket cardio machines like treadmills, for much less than you’d pay normally.
We’ve already tried and tested some of the treadmills in this list – including the Mobvoi Home Treadmill Incline – so you can be sure you’re getting quality bits of kit.
If you’ve been considering buying a treadmill for a while, but have been waiting for price drops, this list of our favourite Black Friday treadmill deals should help.

Mobvoi Home Treadmill Incline
Was $599.99; now $349.99 on Mobvoi
In our test, the excellent Mobvoi treadmill combined gym-quality experience with an easy-to-use interface. It’s solidly constructed, with a quiet and energy-efficient yet powerful 3HP motor. We found the running belt springy, with enough grip, and the treadmill’s smartwatch synchronisation is a neat feature that can help make sessions more engaging.
Horizon Fitness 7.8 AT Treadmill
Was $2,699; now $1,999 on Horizon Fitness
We’re big fans of the integrated Sprint 8 HIIT program on this Horizon treadmill. Seamless integration with the likes of Zwift and Peloton will keep your workouts engaging too.
BowFlex Treadmill 22
Was $3,599; now $3,299 on BowFlex
If you’ve got space and budget to spare, this super-sturdy treadmill from BowFlex is difficult to beat. The large 22″ screen provides a wholly immersive experience, and you can run to the guidance of a virtual coach via the built-in JRNY app.
SOLE Fitness ST90 Treadmill
Was $3,699.99; now $2,999 on Amazon
There are insane deals to be had on this ST90 treadmill. We always like a challenge on our indoor cardio workouts and the incline feature here doesn’t disappoint.
Famistar 4.5HP Folding Treadmill w/ APP control
Was $1,699.99; now $699.99 on Walmart
Another treadmill with a useful incline feature and we think this is one of the smartest on offer, with 15 levels and a 15% maximum gradient ideal for interval training.
RUNOW Incline Treadmill
Was $699.99; now $599.99 on Amazon
Maybe not a brand you’ll be familiar with, but at less than $600 we count this as a bit of a steal. The top speed of 8.1 miles an hour should satisfy all but the quickest of runners, and the foldability combines with a quiet motor for a practical addition to any home gym setup.
Bowflex Treadmill 10
Was $2,299; now $1,699 on Best Buy
We get that treadmill running can get monotonous. There’s no chance of that with the Bowflex Treadmill 100. Now you can workout while you stream your favorite shows from Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Disney+ and HBO Max with JRNY All-Access Membership, which you’ll get free for 2 months.

NordicTrack EXP 14i Treadmill
Was £2,299; now £1,799 on NordicTrack
The NordicTrack is fast becoming the industry standard in treadmills, and we can see why. Its unique SpaceSaver design and a 14in smart HD touchscreen are just some of its highlights.
JTX Sprint-5 Home Treadmill
Was £899; now £825 on JTX Fitness
We had trouble keeping up with the 18kph top speed of this aptly named Sprint model. Its Cushionstep™ suspension and quiet motor keep noise to a minimum, so it’s a good choice for bedrooms or top-floor apartments.
Reebok SL8.0 AC Treadmill
Was £1,750; now £1,249 on Sports Direct
If you’re less Neflix and chill, more Netflix and speed drills, the Reebok SL8.0 has got you covered. You can stream your favourite shows to the 10.1in touchscreen console or tap into its Real View Sport scenic modes.
BowFlex 18 Touch Screen Folding Treadmill
Was £2,099; now £1,199 on sweatband.com
If you’re short on space at home this folding BowFlex model is a good shout, especially now it’s nearly half price for Black Friday. We’re tempted to get one for the office…
Gymrex GR-MG76 Folding Treadmill
Was £929; now £619 on expondo.co.uk
Another space-saving foldable treadmill, we like the fact that the GR-MG76 goes up to 20km/hour – a rapid speed that will cater for just about any interval session. The belt is fairly roomy, too (48 x 130cm), so you can hit top speed without worrying about missing the running surface.
DOMYOS Smart Compact Treadmill RUN100E
Was £499.99; now £399.99 on Decathlon
Decathlon has built its name on good-quality fitness equipment for wallet-friendly prices, and now you can get this folding treadmill for £100 less than the RRP. It’s compatible with all the big-name running apps – including Zwift – and we like the fact it can be folded up and moved around on wheels.
NordicTrack 2450 Treadmill
Was £2,999; now £2,699 on Amazon
With +12% incline and -3% decline control and an immersive 22in HD screen, we think this NordicTrack is one of the best treadmills around – especially at this price.
