For most of people, running or any other type of cardio workout make them sweaty and you need some refreshing breeze during the workout. Some treadmills, especially expensive ones, already have built-in fans and can be controlled from the console the same way as you control all your workout. It’s really cool feature even though fans may cause of extra noise especially in some cheap and poorly assembled treadmill models.
If you have a treadmill, but you are considering to buy a new one just because you want built-in fans, I want to inform you, that you do not need to buy a new treadmill for it! Instead, you can simply buy a Clip Fan which usually costs between $10 and $30! In addition, there are some deals where you can find a portable fan for treadmill which must ideally suit any treadmill!
I’ve done two lists: the list of treadmills with fan and the list of fans for treadmills.
As you can see, mostly only Sole Fitness and ProForm put fans in their treadmills! I’d suggest to be careful when you choose a treadmill with fan not from this list since I found quite a few models where it’s supposed to have a fan according to the description, but actually, they don’t have it. There are lots of good reviews about great quiet fans and where people recommend proform treadmills with fan, so you may consider to buy one!
Update: I just found that ProForm produces fans separately for cars, treadmills and some devices! That’s why people searching for “proform fan”. A treadmill fan costs quite a little comparing to a new treadmill. Some of the fans require electricity from the wall outlet while others can be connected by USB port, so be careful when you choose a fan for treadmill and check the available electricity source to your treadmill before buying.

Also, you can buy a proform fan such as Proform 67010 Electric Fan 10″”Universal “ which is quite good as well.
