Treadmill Review - How To Find The Best Treadmill At The Best Price
When shopping for a treadmill, it is important to know the facts in advance. Sales and advertised specials will not always assure that you get the best price on a high quality treadmill. There are many different brands and types of treadmill and finding the one that will best suit your needs can be frustrating, especially when you consider how many different features and functions are available. People often pay a premium price for a treadmill only to find they do not use or require most of the extra equipment and accessories that are included.
If you are purchasing a treadmill to simply give yourself a convenient way to exercise in your home and are not a serious athlete or runner, a basic motorized treadmill with standard features will suit your needs perfectly. It would not be a wise investment to spend extra money on numerous accessories and features that you rarely use, if ever. A good quality, basic treadmill will cost a minimum of $600 and the price goes up from there. There are less expensive models available, but if the brand and style you choose will not last for a long period of time, then you will have to replace it and you will spend more money in the long run.
Runners and frequent users can expect to pay $1500 dollars or more for a professional quality treadmill. A more powerful motor and extra features such as a steeper incline and a highly rated cushioning system will be well worth the additional cost if you train extensively on your treadmill. No matter which type of treadmill you choose you should make certain the belt is a minimum of 18 inches wide and at least 50 inches long. The control panel should be within easy reach and have a prominent display. A treadmill is a major purchase. Make certain you choose the model that suits your needs and has an excellent warranty.
