Best Home Use Treadmill Reviews UK | 2013
Here you can see side-by-side comparisons of some of the best home use treadmills to buy in the UK (United Kingdom). If you’re from somewhere else in the world, I would recommend looking at these treadmill reviews instead, since you may not be able to get them shipped to your country.
If you want to find the best home use treadmill for the money, I've put together a few extensive side-by-side comparison lists here. I've split the treadmill reviews up into various categories, so you can choose the category that best suits your personal needs and budget.
So In the first category I'm comparing the cheapest treadmills, which includes the Confidence Gtr Power Pro Motorised Treadmill, the Confidence Power Plus Motorised Treadmill and the Confidence Fitness Power Walker Motorised Electric Treadmill.
Out of these three treadmills, the Confidence Power Plus Treadmill is currently the best selling treadmill on the market. Personally, I recommend AVOIDING all of these treadmills unless you intend to use them for light cardio activities such as walking.
It would appear that regardless of user weight, these treadmills have a tendancy to break down quickly. I understand that people want to save money, however, if you're going to have to buy a new treadmill every couple of months, chances are It will end up costing you more in the long-run.
The Confidence Power Plus Motorised Treadmill has been choosen as the winner in this category.
I can only recommend this treadmill, however, if you intend to use it for light cardio only i.e. walking. If you want to jog / run and weigh over 10-stone, I simply cannot recommend any of these treadmills.

The next group of treadmill reviews are mostly entry to mid-range treadmills. I've narrowed the selections down to 3 choices, the Body Sculpture BT3152 Motorised Treadmill, the V-Fit 10KPT Folding Motorised Treadmill and the BENTLEY 16KPH MOTORISED TREADMILL.
Out of the treadmills listed above, the Body Sculpture BT3152 has been chosen as the overall winner.

The 3 finalists for the Mid-range treadmill category are the York T202, the Branx Fitness 20kph and the Maxima Fitness MF-2000-ProFX.
Choosing an overall winner hasn't been an easy task, so I've broken the specifications up side-by-side to help make a more objective assessment.

As you can see the real choices are between the Maxima Fitness MF-2000 and the Branx Fitness 20kph. They're both very similar in terms of quality, features and value for money. The deciding factor however, is that Branx have built a reputation for excellent customer service. So in combination with their impressive lifetime warranty and positive user reviews…
