The Best Foldable Treadmills: Australian Guide

I took a look at the best foldable treadmills available in Australia and here are my top picks. The biggest advantage of a foldable treadmill is a space saving design. So in this list I’ve included a range of options that balance functionality, durability and space saving design.

Lifespan Boost-R Treadmill

The Boost-R treadmill balances being a compact, foldable treadmill while still being large enough to comfortably run on. The Boost-R comes with an LCD display and has 18 levels of automatic incline.

Horizon Omega Z Foldable Treadmill

I’m a huge fan of the Horizon exercise bikes, and the Horizon Treadmills are also a great option. The Omega Z is a foldable treadmill which has a smart angled design that gives you a longer running area. I think it has one of the smartest designs. You also get a slightly higher top speed than many other treadmills in the same price range. And combined with a longer running area I think the Omega Z is one of the best foldable treadmills available in Australia.

Endurance Athlete Foldable Treadmill

Endurance make some of the most popular treadmills in Australia. The Endurance Athlete model is one of the very few foldable treadmills available in Australia that can fold fully flat.

So if you’re looking for a Treadmill that can be stored under the bed or flat against a wall this is one of the very best options.

Lifespan V-Fold

If you’re looking for the most compact foldable treadmill it’s hard to look past the Lifespan V-Fold. The V-Fold is one of the few treadmills that can fold fully flat. It’s also light enough when folded that it can be moved around with relative ease. If you’re looking for a treadmill that you can store under the bed or against a wall in your apartment, this is the best option.

The V-Fold Treadmill from LifeSpan also comes fully assembled and ready to go, so there is no complicated setup process.

Endurance Spirit Treadmill

The Endurance Spirit folds up into a more compact shape. While it’s not quite as compact as the Endurance Athlete model it does offer a higher top speed. This type of foldable treadmill will suit you if you’re looking to store the treadmill in the corner of a room and want to quickly fold it up to give yourself some extra space.

The endurance SPT has 16 levels of automatic incline.

NordicTrack Elite 900

Nordictrack Elite 900 foldable treadmill

If you’re after the ultimate foldable treadmill for home use then NordicTrack make one of the very best options available in Australia. The NordicTrack Elite 900 has a higher top speed than most other foldable treadmills and offers a larger surface that is perfect for running.

NordicTrack offers an iFit subscription product which has home workouts similar to Peloton. However you don’t need to subscribe in order to use this machine and you can access a range of onboard workouts without needing a subscription.

I find that NordicTrack tend to make some of the highest quality gym equipment. You will pay a premium, but they often have fairly good sales. One other advantage is they offer free shipping in Australia. Shipping for gym equipment can often be very expensive so the NordicTrack equipment could end up being cheaper!

NordicTrack T.65 Foldable Treadmill

Nordictrack T.65 Foldable Treadmill

If you’re after a more compact alternative to the NordicTrack Elite, the T.65 is a very capable option. It folds upwards into a space saving design but it still has a large enough surface for running on comfortably. You don’t get the same incline range or speed as the elite model, and it feel quite as stable, but it’s still an excellent option.

Why Get a Foldable Treadmill?

The primary reason to get a foldable treadmill is to save space. Not everyone has the space to have a treadmill setup in place. Most foldable treadmills lift up. This means you can store them near a wall without them taking over the entire room. If you have a combined home office / home gym type setup then a foldable treadmill makes a lot of sense.

I would combine any foldable treadmill with a large exercise mat like the Miramat. The type designed to use exercise equipment on. Treadmills can damage floors and carpets so I like to always use them on top of a mat.
