- May 26, 2018 -

Most of us buy treadmills mainly for home use, and rarely notice the existence of commercial treadmills. Treadmills can be divided into commercial treadmills and home treadmills according to the positioning of products.

Home treadmills are used in personal homes, while commercial treadmills are commonly used in public places such as gyms and more upscale clubs.

Performance differences between home treadmills and commercial treadmills. Commercial treadmills are equipment used by the general public as part of a range. Performance requirements are higher than those of home treadmills, both in terms of use time and intensity of use.

Mainly reflected in the following parameters of the treadmill:


The motor is the core parameter of the treadmill. The performance of a treadmill is mainly determined by the size of the motor. Generally, a home treadmill of 1.5HP is sufficient to cope with daily exercise. However, the requirements for the motor of a commercial treadmill are more than 3HP. The peak horsepower of some commercial treadmills can reach 7HP.

Speed slope

Commercial treadmills, supported by powerful motors, have higher running speeds than home treadmills by 20% to 30% and can reach 20km/h or more. At the same time, the adjustment function of a larger slope is supported, and the home treadmill, in addition to partially not supporting the slope adjustment, has a lower adjustable room than a commercial treadmill.

Differences in the appearance of home treadmills and commercial treadmills.

From a public aesthetic point of view, the general atmosphere of commercial treadmills is consistent with the tastes of most people, and home treadmills are personalized and differentiated in design.

In terms of the size of the treadmill

Due to factors such as treadmill area, home treadmills are slightly smaller than commercial treadmills and support folding functions.

Differences in prices between home treadmills and commercial treadmills.

Therefore, the difference between home treadmill and commercial treadmill is quite obvious. Consumers can't generalize on specific purchases. Some gyms use more high-end home treadmills. Some families prefer a commercial treadmill. There is no clear distinction between home and business. Consumers need to buy at the same time. Set, the best is the best.
