Choosing The Right Treadmill

Aug 17, 2007
Staying fit may be one of the goals of most individuals today. Many do this to avoid getting sick, to boost confidence, to lose weight or just for the mere fun of it. We can't deny though that most of those who attempt to stay fit by doing walking or jogging exercises on a regular basis encounter personal hindrances such as time management, weather, security and health issues. One of the best solutions for this concern is to have your own treadmill. What are the things to consider when one buys a treadmill?

There are different types of treadmills. These types may vary with the simplicity and the complexity of the gadget. What are the things to consider? In choosing a treadmill that is best for you, the first thing to consider would be your goals. Next, would be your body type and your health issues. The space it may occupy in your house and the cost of the product is also important.

What do you want to achieve? This is the number one question that you have to consider when buying a treadmill. Is this gadget worth the money in terms of shaping your physical built? Who can use it other than me? Will it really help me to achieve my fitness target?

What are the health issues that may arise in relation to my body type with the prolonged usage of the device? It is important to consult your doctor first before even shelling out the cash to buy a treadmill.

Will it fit anywhere in the house? There are treadmills available currently which can easily be kept with their compact options.

Lastly, is it worth the amount that you will be paying for? The answers will greatly depend upon the choice that you make on what type of treadmill you will purchase. After considering all the above issues and you have come to the decision of buying a treadmill, you then have to consider what type of treadmill you should settle for.

There are three main types of treadmills. You have the manual treadmill, the motorized treadmill and the foldable treadmill. The simplest among the three is the manual treadmill. It is made up of a belt and rollers for you to move in your own pace and keep up with it. But this fact may spoil others who stick to their desired speeds for it may not bring any fast results. Once you work out there should be gradual change in intensity to keep up with the change of metabolism.

The next type is the motorized treadmill. This type has programmable speed options on whether you want to walk, jog or run. Most of the motorized treadmills also carry the feature of an inclination option. You will have an option for an uphill or inclined terrain.

The last option is the foldable treadmill for those who want to do their workout and then keep it somewhere afterwards without impeding the space or area. This type of treadmill is also ideal for those who want to bring their treadmills in places like the office or a friend's house for example.

Exercise is an important part of healthy living and it must be done with the utmost consideration of one's age, body type and capabilities to do an exercise.
