How To Buy A Treadmill?

Aug 17, 2007
Treadmills might be one of the greatest inventions in the exercise industry. Taking a jog or brisk walk is very healthy for your body and even your mind. However, it might be too cold or hot outside, too dark, maybe there are no sidewalks where you live or some other dangerous aspect of going outside for a jog. That is what makes treadmills so great.

You can go for a walk, jog or even run - all in the comfort of your own home. You can watch television while using your treadmill or listen to the radio.

1) Benefits of using a treadmill - Treadmills help you in your aerobic exercise and cardio training. It will help you lose weight, as well as make your heart and lungs stronger.

2) Tips when purchasing a treadmill - When purchasing a treadmill, you should first know what you want out of it. There are manual treadmills and motorized treadmills. Manual treadmills make you push to make the belt move and then it picks up speed as you go.

Motorized treadmills will make you choose a speed and it will start when you press start. Some more advanced ones can also track how many steps you take, how many miles you "traveled", how many calories you burned and even track your heart rate. All of these features can help you in your weight loss plan because you can make goals for yourself. If you walk 1 mile one week, maybe you can try to challenge yourself the next week by walking two or more miles.

3) Where to look for deals when buying a treadmill - Checking online can help because you can shop around at many different stores in a small amount of time without having to drive to each location. You can compare prices, various features and see which one you would like the best. Find one that would best fit your needs.

It will also be good to go to a local store that sells them because they usually have display models. You can try out different kinds of treadmills so you can see what it feels like to walk, jog and run on a treadmill. This will help give you a clearer idea of what type of treadmill is best for you. Find deals online or locally where they might offer free shipping (shipping can be expensive for a treadmill), in store pickup (so you can avoid shipping costs), discounts on overstock and all while keeping the features in mind.

This is an investment you are making for your health and you shouldn't settle for something that isn't going to last as long as it should. See if they also have any warranty plans. If something breaks, it would be better to have it fixed than to have to throw the whole thing away and buy a new one. You never have to pay retail price for anything and that includes treadmills.

Use due diligence before buying the treadmill of your choice. Shop around for the best deal.
