Life Fitness Platinum Club Series
Now this is the luxury cruise liner of treadmills. There's plenty of surface to run on, and the FlexDeck Shock Absorption System helps save you from tender knees and joints. There are also heart rate monitors in the handlebars for walkers and a Polar chest strap for all you joggers. The best bit is the 16-inch integrated LCD touchscreen (compatible with iOS and Android devices), which means you can keep an eye on all your favourite websites, apps and social stuff while you sweat. Installation is part of the whopping price.

NordicTrack X9i Incline Series
Now you can train with the mad intensity of Rocky IV's Ivan Drago with the X9i, thanks to its -6 to 40% incline range. Walk on an angle that's more like a slide than a road and you can burn up to five times more calories. It also has a colour, web-enabled touchscreen (10-inch) for entertainment and training programmes, and a NordicTrack wireless pulse strap is included - sending results to the display to help you stay in the right training zone.

For a more frugal choice, the PT141 offers a 3-position adjustable decline (manual) from flat to eight per cent. There's a shock-absorbing deck, top speed of 13km/h (8mph) and an auto-stop system - using a magnetic key - in case you take a tumble. It also has a small LCD console, telling you your body fat percentage, estimated calorie burn, distance, hand-pulse readings, speed and time, plus there are 18 preset programmes. Tesco also sells treadmills for under £100, but your money would be better spent getting a decent pair of trainers and going outside.
