This guide will help you decide whether to hire a treadmill or to apply for treadmill finance. Hiring a treadmill is one way to pay monthly and spread the cost. But, as we’ll explore, it can be a costly short-term option. Could buying a treadmill on finance be a smarter investment in your long-term fitness? Read on to find out.
Are you looking to rent a treadmill? While we don’t offer treadmill hire here at JTX Fitness, we are happy to give you some top tips. If you are only looking to train towards short term fitness goals, renting a treadmill can be a good option. Here are some key things to consider before you rent a treadmill:
Choose the right home treadmill for your fitness goals, height and weight. The size of the running deck is also key to a comfortable and safe run.
Check that the treadmill has plenty of speed and incline settings to make your runs challenging and interesting.
Make sure you’ll get a quick replacement or repair if the treadmill breaks down. Some treadmill hire companies charge weekly fees while they are repairing the treadmill.
Can you achieve your health & fitness goals within the rental period? Make sure you have a workout plan in mind.
Compare the rental cost with buying your own treadmill. It’s usually far more cost-effective to own, and you will benefit for years to come.

At JTX Fitness, we specialise in new, gym-quality fitness equipment, designed for home and commercial use. Many people believe that robust, high-specification semi-commercial treadmills are far too expensive to own. We’re on a mission to bust this myth.
Treadmill finance makes owning a gym grade treadmill an accessible option for all. JTX Fitness does not currently offer finance directly. But, if you want to buy one of our treadmills on finance, you can apply for PayPal Credit when you check out.
Owning a treadmill can be more beneficial than hiring for a number of reasons:
It can take a while to build a fitness habit that sticks. Owning your treadmill gives you time to find a routine that works.
Hiring means you’ll have to return your treadmill after a month or two. In contrast, buying a treadmill is an investment in your long-term fitness.
With no time limit, you can try every program at your own pace. Learn which programs help you meet your goals and improve your performance.
With our industry leading in-home repair warranty, you know you’re covered. In the unlikely event your treadmill develops a fault, an engineer will come and fix it.
If you own your treadmill, you can sell it at any time to recover some of the cost.
Applying for PayPal Credit is a quick and easy way to spread the cost of your online purchases.
When you buy a JTX treadmill, you will have the option to apply for Paypal Credit at the checkout. Simply fill out your details and PayPal will give you an answer within minutes. PayPal Credit is a smart way to split the cost of buying a treadmill into affordable monthly payments.
If your PayPal Credit application is successful, you could enjoy 0% treadmill finance for four months. After your interest free period you will be charged a typical APR of 19.9%. Choose to spread your payments over 6 to 24 months.
Spread your payments over the longest term and you could pay less per month than the cost of treadmill hire. With no need to return your treadmill, you can focus on smashing your fitness goals for years to come.
