If you’re shopping all the best holiday deals this year for low-impact exercise equipment but lack actual space in your home, I have excellent news. There are super slim and compact treadmills on Amazon that can fit in (and under) any space.

Compact treadmills — sometimes marketed as “under desk treadmills” or "folding treadmills"— are the easiest way to get your cardio on at home. Another great thing about compact treadmills? The prices are sublime thanks to their simplicity, especially when compared to cardio heavy-hitters like Peloton and NordicTrack.

Of course, not everyone has the same reasons for wanting a compact treadmill. Whether you’re a dedicated long-distance runner looking for a treadmill you can use at home or want an easy option for quick cardio, we rounded up the best folding treadmills on Amazon.
