Used Treadmills Reviewed - How Remanufactured Treadmills Can Save You Up To 50%
by: Julie-Ann Amos

Thinking about buying a treadmill but worried about the high price? Take a look at remanufactured or used treadmills, one of the best fitness deals around. They are much more than just used machines; they are fully refurbished and often come with an excellent warranty.

What are Remanufactured Treadmills?

Remanufactured treadmills are used machines, but with an important difference. They have been completely refurbished to “almost new” condition by a professional fitness equipment company and they are generally covered by a warranty. Best of all, they are priced at up to 50% less than a new treadmill, making them an excellent choice for most people’s needs.

Where do Used Treadmills Come From?

Companies that sell remanufactured treadmills may obtain them in several ways. Some are warranty returns, but most are from clubs and fitness centers that are updating or changing their equipment. A few come back due to financial distress or non-payment of balances due. In most cases, a reputable re-seller will only refurbish and sell the equipment they feel is of the highest quality.

What is the difference between refurbished and remanufactured?

Most sellers of used treadmills use these words interchangeably, but their actual refurbishment processes can vary. Some will put a machine through basic testing and touch up, while others will take machines apart and replace key parts before re-selling.

What should I know before buying a used treadmill?

Before buying a used treadmill of any kind, take the time to do some research about the refurbishment process used by the seller. The best processes will include most of the following steps:

*Complete disassembly of all parts

*Full frame refinishing rather than touch up

*Testing and rebuild of mechanical systems using new parts that meet manufacturer specifications

*Testing and rebuild of electrical systems using new parts that meet manufacturer specifications

*Reassembly and thorough testing of all functions and operations

What are the advantages of buying remanufactured treadmills?

There are several advantages to buying remanufactured treadmills, such as:

Price – You can often buy a previously used, remanufactured treadmill for up to 50% less than a comparable brand new treadmill.

Quality – The quality of remanufactured treadmills is nearly new in most cases, with many key parts replaced before the treadmill is re-sold.

Value – Many remanufactured models are commercial-grade machines that you would normally find in a fitness club rather than in a private home. This means you can access excellent equipment at moderate prices, making your dollar stretch farther.

Warranty – Most remanufactured machines come with some sort of warranty, which is added protection for you as a buyer. The best treadmill warranties on used machines will be for at least six months and sometimes even longer.


When it comes to buying used treadmills, there is no need to settle for an “as is” piece of equipment. You can buy a fully refurbished and remanufactured treadmill that looks and feels new but is priced up to 50% less than a brand new machine. Find a reputable re-seller that thoroughly remanufactures and tests every treadmill, and look for a good warranty to go along with it. If you shop carefully, you will usually find that remanufactured treadmills are among the best deals around.
