Rain, crowded trails and paths, and COVID-19 are all real hurdles that keep a runner from getting outdoors for daily mileage. That’s when it’s helpful to have one of the latest treadmills, packed with powerful training tools, cool interactive elements, and more performance features than ever. Running inside might not bring the same rush as getting outdoors, but you can’t beat the convenience and safety of jumping on a good machine, especially during times of social distancing.

Take a look below at quick info on five of the best treadmills, then keep scrolling for buying advice and more in-depth reviews of these and other high-performing models.

A quality treadmill with a variety of programming and interactive features can set you back a few thousand dollars, but that investment will pay dividends for many years as you bank miles and workouts you might otherwise have missed. We put 36 of the newest models through their paces in the RW Test Zone to find the top performers based on their quality, features, and affordability. Whether you’re upgrading an older version or searching for your first treadmill, one of these will suit your needs. (And once you have a treadmill, check out these great workouts that help you increase speed, build strength, and burn fat.)
