Basic Guide To Buying A Treadmill

Aug 26, 2008
Before deciding to buy a treadmill what one needs is to maintain the commitment to regular aerobic exercise. But there are dozens of different treadmills, ranging from high to low prices. What to look for before buying is one of the important things? First, decide where to put the new treadmill and measure the space. One will need some free space around the machine itself. Second, dress in loose, comfortable clothing and workout shoes. As one must try out several machines before buying and finally, head off to a specialty fitness retail store.

Treadmill is a piece of indoors sporting equipment. This is used for running or walking without moving any distance. It has a belt system where the top of the belt moves to the rear. This allows a runner to run an equal and necessarily opposite speed. The speed of the run can be set and measured. The main advantage is that it allows a constant speed. They can be changed when they are required. They allow an exact adjustment of speed and incline. It provides an effective way to workout compared to other complex cardiovascular exercises.

Construction
The thickness of the walking deck and the size of the walking track should also be high on the list of priorities. The thickness of the deck affects the comfort of the legs and feet with extended use.

Choose a treadmill that has a deck thickness of at least 3/4 inch or one inch if plan to do both walking and jogging. The walking track needs enough length and width for one to walk comfortably without stepping off the track. If one plans to run on new treadmill, then go for the longer track. Test it while it is in the store. To provide effective cushioning for the legs, feet and back, the treadmill's suspension must be directly under the walking deck.

The padding can be made of foam or rubber. After checking out the physical construction, look at a treadmill's electronic board. The more expensive treadmills also have a range of particular preset exercise programs that repeatedly alter speed and incline, varying high-intensity effort with lower-intensity effort. Choose a quality electric treadmill, as it will last for years and provide great versatility for the cardiovascular program. Find a good specialty equipment store that can help to find the treadmill.

Where to put the treadmill?
If there is less space in the room then buy the folding treadmill. If this is important then check which ones can be folded up easily, especially if a smaller sized person might need to do it. Also think of the amount of noise it might make and when to use it. Another point to take into consideration is the surface to place it on.
