The Different Types of Treadmills


When we usually think of treadmills, we tend to think thatthere is only one type on the market. However, this isvery far from the truth as there are a couple of differenttypes of treadmills.

There is, of course, the home treadmill that most arefamiliar with. However, the other type of treadmill is thecommercial treadmill, which are the ones that are usuallyseen in the gym.

Most exercise gurus will pursue getting home treadmill.They range from cheap, manual treadmills up to the higherquality ones that are designed for those with extensiverunning and cross training in their workouts.

Competition in the treadmill industry is extremely high.There are hundreds of brands and types of treadmills thatare all competing for your money.

There are folding home treadmill varieties which are greatspace savers as they can fold up and be put in a closet orunder a bed. However this type of treadmill lacks anextremely sold form that most home treadmills possess.

The other variety of treadmill is known as the commercialtreadmill. This type of treadmill is used in a gym orother type of commercial setting such as a doctor's office.

A commercial treadmill tends to have a higher powered motorwith more horsepower than a home machine. It also has morea bulky and rugged look to it and feels extremely stable,which does eliminate finding folding varieties ofcommercial treadmills.

Due to the intended extreme usage there is less of awarranty, roughly 3-4 years, that is included with thepurchase of a commercial treadmill.

When a treadmill is intended to be used as one within acommercial type of environment, then it may be only logicalfor you to get a commercial treadmill.

However, there might be a few treadmills that arecategorized as home treadmills, that might be used in otherlight commercial settings such as in small hotel gyms butin this case, as in all, be sure that you go over thewarranty several times.

There are many decent options for those needing a hometreadmill. If your workout is only going to includewalking for the life of your machine then a smaller, lessexpensive variety will do as more than capable.

Avid runners and exercisers are encouraged to get a higherpriced ranged home machine that will have more features andinclude higher length warranties.

The only real difference in the two types of treadmills isthat of the warranty length and the type of usage.
