Advanced Fitness, a site devised by manufacturer Smooth Treadmills offers its own treadmill consumer guide, which, while jam packed with helpful insight by users themselves, may not be all that objective. Users were asked to rate from 1-10 nine areas of the treadmills they used.

In this treadmill consumer guide the equipment was divided into three price ranges - economy, mid-range and premium. What brings this study into question is the fact that one of Smooth's treadmills earned top honors in all three categories.
