2. KOBO (Best treadmill brands in India)
Another popular selling brand for treadmill is Kobo.
Apart from treadmills, they also make other gym equipment such as benches, wrist supports, etc.
They are a child company of Pan International, who have over 50 years experience in manufacturing and exporting fitness gear.
The quality of the treadmills is great, and they also make a variety of models to suit different customer’s needs.
The major drawback that their service has is that their treadmills come with only a 3-month warranty. For an expensive product like a treadmill, that is unacceptable.
They also do not provide installation services. This is a hassle that the customers have to deal with. Finding a professional who can install a treadmill properly is not something the customer should have to do.
Also, their shock absorption methods are inferior.
For their lack of warranty and installation service, their pricing is not too cheap. Their pricing is fair, but customers would be better off paying a little extra for better warranty coverage.
For the above mentioned issues, they also have a lot of negative feedback online.
- Good brand with good history
- Good build quality
- Decent price
- Poor warranty – only 3 month motor warranty
- No installation service
- Inferior shock absorption
- Poor after sales support

That lets them create products that are superior to others in the home use department. They also focus heavily on safety, as accidents on treadmills can hurt real bad—especially older people. Their focused strategy is a contrarian approach in the market, and it has served them well.
Cockatoo is another domestic treadmill manufacturer that makes treadmills and other fitness equipment for the Indian audience. Surprisingly, we couldn’t find their website and company details, but judging by their online presence, their treadmills are quite popular. Most of their products are made for end consumers, and they don’t make much commercial equipment if they make them at all.

Headquartered in Raipur, FitKit primarily makes treadmills, but they also manufacture plenty of other fitness accessories in the Fitness market.

Apart from treadmills, they also manufacture strength equipment like leg extension machine, lat-pull down the machine, bicep curl machines, etc. The strength equipment is made for commercial purposes, i.e., for gyms, but the treadmills are made for home use. Overall, they claim to follow international standards for manufacturing, are a strong contender in the home-use treadmill space.
Lifelong is an interesting entry in this list of the best treadmill brands in India. The company originally makes plastic injection molding parts die casting parts, and similar industrial equipment, but they seem to have a consumer division as well, which makes a home, kitchen, grooming, lifestyle, and fitness products. Lifelong isn’t doing this lightly, as they have recruited Mithila ParkarMithila Parkar as a brand ambassador as well. They make only 3-4 models of treadmills right now, but they have good ratings on Amazon as they have spent a lot of money on ads. Overall, they won’t be our first choice when considering getting a treadmill for home use.
