Research is Key When Buying a Treadmill - Check Out the Best Treadmill Ratings and Reviews Online!


A home treadmill offers many advantages - just imagine, no more waiting in line at the gym or worrying about what other people think of your clothes! But choosing from the extensive range of treadmills can be a daunting task, so it pays to do your homework. A treadmill is a long term investment in your health, not just a fad until you forget your new years resolutions and good intentions!

It you are serious about making a positive change in your life, buying a treadmill can be a major step in the right direction to help you achieve your goals. First of all, define your aims and expectations, and consider the fitness needs of all the users in your household. Then calculate your budget - there's no point buying a fancy piece of equipment that you can't afford. Get online and compare treadmill reviews and ratings of models in your price range.

There are several things to bear in mind when finding the best treadmill for you. It's always advisable to choose a reputable company with a proven track record in the fitness industry. Look out for those that supply commercial treadmills to gyms, as their products are likely to be high quality. A specialized fitness equipment store should have knowledgeable staff that can offer useful advice, as well as offering a good standard of customer service. Remember to ask what the warranty covers. Most home treadmills have lifetime warranties on the frame. Find out what parts are covered, especially the motor, deck, belt and electronic components. As a guide, you should be looking for a minimum of 1 -3 years warranty.

Check to see if there is sufficient evidence of research to back up the manufacturers grand advertising claims. For example, shock absorption is a key factor when choosing a treadmill, so look at the science behind the cushioning system offered by manufacturers. Safety features are essential, such as built in heart rate monitoring and warm up/cool down periods. Comfort is important too - look for well designed handrails or grips. Ideally a home treadmill should be low maintenance. A bigger motor isn't necessarily better - a 2.0 continuous duty HP motor should be sufficient for most users, with an efficient cooling system to prolong the life of components. A reversible deck can be a good choice, as this can effectively double the lifespan of the machine.

Electronic features can be overwhelming, so make a note of what is important to you personally. What will motivate you to stick at it? Personalized user IDs can be really useful, as they can store records of previous workouts. A fitness test facility can be handy to measure progress and set targets. Pre-set programming can help prevent boredom by introducing some variation into your daily workout. In general, a console that is easy to read and is simple to operate with just a few buttons, preferably with a "quick start" feature is a good choice.

A home treadmill offers a convenient, safe and reliable way to increase your fitness levels and keep you looking and feeling great! Doing your research to find the best treadmill can have fantastic results!
