> Max Speed : 23km/h
> Programmes : 19 Workout
> Incline: 22 Levels
> Running Area : L 140 cm x W 48 cm (close estimate)
> Warranty : 5 years for motor, 2 years for parts and labour and lifetime on frame.
> Music : iPad compatible; Built-in speakers
> Max User Weight : 160 kgs

Branx Fitness ‘Elite Runner Pro’ is often regarded as the king of mid-range class treadmills. Most treadmills in its price range could only hold around 100 to 120 kgs. For a treadmill that is classified as mid-sized, the Branx Fitness ‘Elite Runner Pro’ has a maximum user weight of 160KG/25 stones/350lbs. But to be honest, I don’t think of the Branx Fitness ‘Elite Runner Pro’ Treadmill as a mid-sized. I also haven’t reviewed a treadmill that has a maximum speed of 23km/h like this.

Though not much as a space-saver like it claims to be, it is quite hard to imagine that a fitness machine this hefty and full of features would be compact and space-saving like smaller treadmills. It touches the borderline of the features of the most expensive treadmill on a price range that belongs with mid-class ones.

> Max Speed : 16km/h
> Programmes : 24 workout ; 3 Customisable; 3 User profiles
> Incline: 15 Levels
> Running Area : L 126 cm x W 41 cm (close estimate)
> Warranty : 2 years (must inquire with the supplier and register with Reebok)
> Music : iPad compatible; Built-in speakers
> Max User Weight : 120 kg

the Reebok ZR8 Treadmill is definitely one of those mid-high class treadmills that offer the most value for money. Its technical aspect has a huge advantage compared to other treadmills. Reebok designed ZR8 in a way that everyone will understand what they are getting. Striking visual, good warranty, and an online support for specifically for ZR8?

Look:

Reebok is a mid-high class range of treadmill. The highest classes like Branx Fitness Treadmill has 19 in total, and JTX Sprint-7 has 24 in total.

In addition to the 31 workout programmes, what I like about the ZR8 treadmill is the electronic incline. The soft drop mechanism is not something I am amazed at, I feel like this evens out one of the cons this treadmill has: it is not a space saver and does not fold flat.

PremierFit T100 Treadmill

Reduced Price

> Max Speed : 10km/h
> Programmes : 12 Workout; 3 Manual
> Incline: Fixed at 4%
> Running Area : L 109 cm x W 41 cm (close estimate)
> Warranty : 2 years for parts and frame, a lifetime on the motor.
> Music : iPad compatible; Built-in speakers
> Max User Weight : 90 kg

So far, PremiereFit T100 Treadmill is looking to be a good buy. Again, you get 12 preset and 3 customisable workout programs. Honestly, I found the little details such as the iPad holder and music compatibility to be a plus as I see myself incorporating beast-mode every couple of days or so. But my favourite thing about this treadmill is the lifetime warranty in the motor, in addition to the 2 years for parts and frame.

PremierFit T100 Treadmill would be the most compact and budget-friendly in this group. What sets it apart from the rest of this gang would be the price. Although it is cheap, it has music compatibility which you don’t see with other treadmills in its price range.

Things We Considered in Choosing the Top Folding Treadmills


✔Size and Space

Best Folding Treadmills 2018

The first thing I looked into in narrowing down the best folding treadmills is of course if they fold. This is because I figured that potential buyers are going to use them in limited spaces. So far, PremierFit T100 Treadmill leads the pack in this category.

✔Budget

Best Folding Treadmills 2018

Next thing I looked into is the budget. The treadmills are selected based on the price range that they are in. This being said, all of them are winners with Reebok ZR8 Treadmill and JLL S300 Digital Folding Treadmill ending with a draw for the best folding budget treadmill category.

Branx Fitness 'Elite Runner Pro' Treadmill is said to be in the mid-range class division. But in this review, I classified it as a belonging to the low-high class range treadmills despite seeming to be a high-priced mid-class treadmill.

✔Warranty

Best Folding Treadmills 2018

All of them have lengthy warranties. This ensures your money is well-spent and in a way, secure. But for the sake of ranking them, if budget and warranty is considered as relative, it would have to be a split-decision with JLL S300 winning narrowly over Branx Fitness 'Elite Runner Pro'.

✔Features

Best Folding Treadmills 2018

All of them have distinct features. And considering the fact that they come from different price ranges, it would be safe to say that these four dominated their respective price and class range.

✔Brand

Best Folding Treadmills 2018

Brands like Reebok, JLL Fitness, and Branx Fitness have already established a trusted reputation as far as fitness machines and equipment are concerned. However, PremierFit is not something I am really familiar with though I hear it a lot. And for some reason, I think it is not a household name… Yet. If you have more information for me let me know in the comments section below.


Conclusion


PremierFit T100 Treadmill takes its share of victory for those who are on a tight budget and very limited space.

But for the gym owner, Branx Fitness 'Elite Runner Pro' Treadmill‘s numerous workout programmes and is the biggest in this group, allows it to have more leverage with people who go to the gym. They would have different fitness levels and this treadmill would surely have something in store for them.

Reebok ZR8 Treadmill would be for those who are looking to own a treadmill with for limited space use, but can afford a little more than PremierFit T100 Treadmill.

But when all considerations are said and done, the winner by unanimous decision for the best folding treadmill goes to… JLL S300 Digital Folding Treadmill. Though a master of none, it is a jack of all traits.
