Top Ten Things To Consider When Buying A Treadmill

TOP TEN THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A TREADMILL PRICE/VALUE There is more to consider when buying a treadmill beyond motor horsepower, belt size and treadmill weight. Examine the design. Is it efficient? If the treadmill folds up, how exactly does it fold up? (See #10 below) 24 2 WARRANTY While all brands have longer parts warranties, look for one that offers two years in home labor coverage. This is a huge benefit. ENTERTAINMENT Research shows those who are engaged during a workout will be more inclined to workout longer. Many treadmills are able to browse the web, while some even come with TVs. CUSTOM NEEDS If you are a taller person, you need a treadbelt that is at least sixty inches long. If you are an avid runner look for motor with at least 3 CHP. SPEED RANGE & INCLINE The average person runs between 5,5 and 7.5 mph. Some may go as high as 10 or 12 mph, though that can be dangerous. A 12% incline satisfies the average user. WORKOUT PROGRAMS Look for innovative programming options like Bluetooth Audio/Video, custom HD workouts using Google Maps, or iPad integration and special apps. QUALITY Does a particular brand require regular maintenance? If so, does the treadmill belt need regular lubrication? You'll also want to know if the bearings come pre lubricated. NOISE LEVEL Most noise comes from the belt rubbing on the deck, so look for a whisper weave belt and a phenolic coated deck. CONSOLE & READOUTS Begin by trying to find a backlit console. Also look for treadmills that have a one touch speed and incline adjustment. This is great for runners. If you like automation, a wireless heart rate control is a really good feature as well. 10 FOLDING VS. NON-FOLDING If you are runner, ask if you'll be sacrificing some quality with a folding treadmill. INFORMATION PROVIDED BY: + Copyright © 2013 Elliptical Machine Reviews, All rights reserved.
