Weslo Treadmills

Who Should Buy A Weslo?

Weslo treadmills' main attraction is its price. If you're the price-conscious type of person who would rather save money than buy high quality treadmills, then this brand is perfect for you.

These are probably some of the most inexpensive treadmills you would find in the market today.

However, I believe that these machines are not for everyone. It doesn't have the durability and strength serious runners look for in an exercise equipment. And since they are cheaper than most treadmills, expect their features, specs, and quality to be below average.

A Brief Company Background…

Weslo treadmills are made by the largest manufacturer and marketer of exercise equipment in the world, which is Icon Health and Fitness. It has 4,800 employees and 10 manufacturing facilities in the United Stated, Canada and China.

Weslo Cedence G5.9 Treadmill

Weslo is the entry level brand of Icon. It is the cheapest treadmill brand being offered by that company. Most are priced below $1,000 which makes it probably one of the lowest priced treadmill brands in the market today.

Fallbacks of Weslo Treadmills

Other than Weslo's short warranties, which are to be expected with most low priced treadmills, another weakness is that these treadmills are not as comfortable to run on as some people would want them to be. Also, expect them to lack tons of features found in more expensive treadmills.

In Conclusion…

If you're a seasoned runner, then Weslo treadmills just aren't right for you. It lacks the power, running space and features found in higher priced treadmills. My suggestion is you spend your money on treadmills worth $1,500 and above.(see our best buy treadmills page)

However, if you're looking for feature rich treadmills for the lowest possible price, then this brand is worth investigating.
