What You Need To Know About Treadmills Before You Buy
Author: Helen Hecker

The home treadmill has experienced substantial growth over the past few years. Treadmills are a large investment financially and in your fitness, therefore much thought and preparation should go into the purchase of a new treadmill. The great attraction of a home treadmill is being able to exercise whenever you want to, regardless of the weather.

AC motors that are found in some treadmill units run at one continuous speed and rely on a transmission to regulate speed whereas units powered by DC motors use variable voltage to regulate the speed at which the belt spins. A well-constructed treadmill is a piece of home exercise equipment that every member of your family can enjoy. A few treadmill models are powered by the user rather than a motor.

Using a heart rate monitor enables a treadmill to automatically adjust the speed and/or the incline to keep your heart rate within the most optimum zone. One of the key things to remember is that the larger motors tend to run cooler and usually require less repair and maintenance. Most treadmills come with an electronic console that displays workout feedback such as speed, distance traveled, time you've been working out and calories burned.

Notice that some treadmill heart rate monitors clip onto an ear or, for more accurate readings, strap on to the chest. The console indicates belt speed and other factors, such as heart rate, mph, distance, etc. Many of the treadmills available have the ability to add an incline to your workout to duplicate running or walking uphill, therefore increasing the intensity of a workout.

The monitor indicates belt speed and other factors, such as heart rate, mph, and distance. Safety features on a treadmill are especially important if you plan to work out alone or if you have small children who might accidentally start up the treadmill.

Treadmills are a very important investment, regardless of the price; if it's not right for you, you don't want to find this out after you've set the treadmill up at home. Make sure to add in the cost of shipping when purchasing a treadmill online; quality models can be heavy, but some manufacturers do offer free shipping.

Noise from the smallest repetitive sound can drive you nuts over a period of time and provide you with one more reason not to exercise. The taller a person is the longer their stride and so you'll need to choose a treadmill with a longer and wider belt.

If you're looking for a heavy-duty treadmill that can withstand running as well as walking, be prepared to spend more money. Consider bringing your water bottle and towel to the treadmill store and try out their treadmills. Most manufacturers of commercial treadmills found in gyms and health clubs also produce home versions.

The more incline variation offered in a treadmill unit, the more expensive the model will be. Do your research; treadmills are an important investment, regardless of the price, and if it's not right for you, you don't want to find out after you've set the treadmill up at home.

To make sure that your treadmill is sturdy and comfortable and doesn't operate noisily, step on it and test it out before you buy. Buying a treadmill online will save you both time and money.

Probably the most important thing to look for in a treadmill is how sturdy it is. Commercial club treadmills are reliable and well constructed; do look into a home version.

Lack of wind resistance makes running on a treadmill slightly easier than it would otherwise be on an equal elevation grade outdoors. Be careful, any type of jogging or running, whether on a treadmill or not, puts strain on leg and hip joints.

Running or walking on a treadmill can be an effective way to workout compared to other complex cardiovascular exercises. To get even more workouts, consider making your treadmill into a walking office by adding a mini-platform to the side rails as originated by Dr. James Levine.

Choosing the best treadmill is easier than ever. And remember, home exercise treadmills are a large investment financially and in your fitness and much thought and preparation should go into the purchase of any new treadmill. Take time to do your research, the same way you would any major purchase and buying a treadmill won't be difficult.
