Best Treadmills Under Rs. 20,000

by Haany Ali | Last Updated


We all feel the need for cardio, or some kind of workout every now and then. It might be because you want to stay in shape and be fit, or you may be focused on increasing the stamina of your body, or if someone had complimented you on your looks and you want to maintain those looks.

All those reasons boil down to one simple fact: exercising daily.

We rarely even find quality time to talk to our relatives, friends and family members. In such a hectic world, going to a gym without fail seems almost impossible.

Every possible reason pops in your head. You are too tired today, you just don’t feel like it today, or the classic one, “I’ll work out twice as hard tomorrow!”. And to add to that, the gym might not be right in front of your house either.

To tackle all of these problems, what you can do is bring the gym to your home.

A treadmill is one of the best possible options.

Why buy a treadmill?

For those who don't want to leave their homes when they go for a jog or a run, and for those who want to stay fit, a treadmill is a perfect option.

A treadmill is a device that is used for walking or running while staying at the same place.

This can be a perfect opportunity for aged people who need to get some exercise, but would like to stay close to their homes, where their medicines and other supplies are readily accessible in case of any medical emergencies. Exercising on a treadmill also doesn’t stress their joints when compared to fast-paced walking.

In this article, we are going to reviews some of the best treadmills under Rs. 20,000 in India. They have been shortlisted after hours of research on the web to make sure that you get the best value for the money paid.

In the table below, I've captured the specifications of some of the key features that one must lookout for when buying a new treadmill. You can refer it in case you are struggling to make a purchase decision, and are confused between two or more shortlisted options.
