Hi, I'm Morgan Schneider, and I'm the Chief Editor here at Treadmill Portal.
I’ve spent the last decade helping people achieve fitness at home. I’m a three-time marathoner, former gym manager, and an avid daily runner. I’ve trained through harsh winters when long outside runs weren’t possible. I learned very quickly that many treadmills on the market are not built for durability and longevity. A 15-mile treadmill run as part of a marathon training plan will put most home gym equipment through the wringer. If you are like most, you probably won’t need a treadmill for insanely long runs, but you want a product that will last for many years. Good treadmills aren’t cheap, but you can find great deals on quality products. I firmly believe that running is the best exercise for weight loss and improved health, and I think a home treadmill is an ideal way to stick to a running plan, rain or shine.
I’m not the only voice here at Treadmill Portal. The site is also run by a team of athletes, runners, and home gym equipment enthusiasts, and our mission is to help people weed through the many treadmill options to find the best fit. Confused about the various options for treadmills, ellipticals and other home cardio equipment? We’ll help you find the right tools for your workout and budget.
If you're new to running and don’t know where to start, we’ll guide you to the best treadmill options. If you are an experienced athlete looking to invest in some new home equipment, we can help you too. Either way, we welcome to our site and our community, and we hope you find our resources helpful! We'd love to hear from you, whether that's in a comment on one of our posts or a private message to our team.
