The Most Important Things to Know When Choosing a Treadmill

If you ever had the desire to buy a treadmill, you were probably hit by all sorts of questions: "What treadmill should I buy?", "Where will I put it?", "When will I have the time to use it?", "What are the most important things to take into consideration when choosing a treadmill?" , "Which treadmills will help me look fit?" and so forth. This article will try to answer these questions and give you an insight of the most important factors that are to be taken into consideration when choosing a treadmill or jogging machine.

First thing you should do before choosing a treadmill is figure out how much free space you have inside your home, because treadmills come in different sizes and designs. Once you know approximately how much space you can free up, you can go look for a treadmill of that exact specific size. Don't put yourself in the unnecessary, awkward position where you come home with your newly purchased treadmill and are forced to put it in the closet because of the lack of room.

When choosing a treadmill, apart from size and design, another important factor you should take into consideration will be its quality. A quality treadmill can last for years, while poor quality ones can break apart in a matter of weeks or months. What gives quality and longevity to a treadmill is its motor. The ones with a larger, heavier motor will have a smaller chance of breaking down, because of their solid configuration, but of course there will still be a small risk that it could brake down.

Still they are a great choice to make if you have the money and room for them. Also look for quality and time-tested brands and don't let yourself attracted by the really small prices low-quality treadmills offer. You could pay half the price of a good, quality treadmill but you could end up with it breaking down in a matter of weeks.

Because when you decided to buy a treadmill you probably thought about your health first, it's very important that the treadmill provides a healthy and effective way to work out. One of the most important factors in this matter is the thickness of the walking deck and the size of the walking track, both having a bad effect on your feet and ankles if they don't respect a set of healthy measures.

Therefore if you plan to do both walking and jogging on your treadmill, its walking deck's thickness needs to be at least 3 inches in order to provide a healthy solution. The walking track should be around 48 inches in length and 17-18 inches in width to provide the necessary space for you to work out in a comfortable position.

The next step you need to figure out when choosing a treadmill is what you want it to show you on its electronic board. The electronic board differs from treadmill to treadmill, although some of the basic parameters almost all of them offer are speed, distance, calorie burnout and maybe inclination degree.

Some of the newer treadmill models have an interesting extra feature that measures your heart rate and shows it on their monitor. A really important factor you should take into consideration when choosing a treadmill if you have heart problems.

The benefits of choosing a treadmill for home workout instead of going to a gym are immense. First off, it will save the precious time it takes you to go and come back from the local gym, not to mention you save the money it would take you to pay for the gym training session or monthly fee.

The second main advantage is that by having a treadmill in your home, all members of your family will have the chance to work out (which of course can turn into a disadvantage when everyone wants to work out at the same time, but that's highly improbable if you make a precise time-schedule).
