With gyms temporarily closed, fitness equipment is selling fast online. That’s because more people are looking for ways to transition their workouts to a home gym environment, on top of an influx of newcomers looking to kick-start a new exercise routine to enhance their general health.
Walking and running are good forms of cardio exercise that can help you lose or maintain weight, and boost your heart health. They have extra benefits for your mental health too – they help you de-stress, cope better with feelings of worry or anxiety, and even increase your focus and productivity.
New social distancing measures may mean that we can’t run or walk outdoors to the level we’re used to, but a treadmill means you can walk, jog or sprint as much as you want indoors. And while they are selling fast online, here we’ve rounded up the major online stores where you can still buy treadmills for home delivery.

- Jump straight to treadmills at Amazon
- Jump straight to treadmills at Best Buy

We’ve also picked out a few of our favorite running machines that are still available online right now, a couple of which feature in our guide to the best treadmills.
Treadmills vary enormously in terms of price and features, with some offering a gym-level professional experience for your home, while others can be neatly folded-up when not in use. Just like some of the best exercise bikes for home workouts, top treadmills boast smart features to help you gain more insight into your fitness levels.
That means they’ll track your distance, calories burned and heart rate, and gather that data for you to view at the end of your workout so that you can stay on top of your fitness goals. For more accurate levels of heart rate monitoring, you may even choose to wear a smartwatch while working out, or take a look at our round-up of the best fitness trackers for real sports-focused smarts.
Before you think about buying a treadmill online right now, remember that distribution chains and delivery times are changing rapidly due to the continued coronavirous pandemic. So check the specific delivery time-frame in your postal area for your chosen treadmill, as longer delivery waiting times might become the norm soon.
