A treadmill is a stationary cardio machine that allows the user to walk or run while staying at the same spot. A conveyor belt driven by an electric motor or flywheel puts the machine in motion. The rate at which the belt moves will determine the path that the user should run or walk. Treadmills usually come with different kinds of features that allow to customize the workout experience by adjusting the speed and incline options. Treadmill workouts improve heart health and target specifically the lower body.
Why choosing treadmills over other gym equipment? Each machine has a special purpose and benefits.
Again, different gym equipments train different muscles. The choice of gym equipment should align with the purpose of the training.
After considering the benefits and the purpose of the purchase of the equipment it’s important to start making practical choices.
Before making a decision is important to measure the available space and buy accordingly the treadmill.
The length of the treadmill for home use should be chosen accordingly with the purpose of the workout. For walking, jogging, light running a shorter belt is enough and for race running a longer belt is required.
It’s recommended that the length should at least be of 125 x 45 cm, however tall and heavy users are recommended to purchase a treadmill with a “race” training length of 145 x 55 cm.
for home use are a pragmatic choice. Foldable treadmills can be used in smaller spaces and they make cleaning easier because they can be stored away when they aren’t in use.

are not as practical but they offer great stability. The non-folding treadmills resemble more to the models found in a gym. This fact makes non-folding treadmills popular among heavier users.
Extended periods of sitting are damaging for the health that’s why office treadmills are a good choice. And of course, a pragmatic one: the user can work and work out at the same time. Usually treadmill models come in two forms: with a desk and without a desk. These treadmills are designed rather for walking and come with lower speed options.
The speed choice will fully rely on workout preferences and fitness goals. The faster the running pace the more calories will be burned. There are three factors that should be considered when choosing the speed of the treadmill: age, physical condition, and goals.
The simplest treadmills go up to 16 km /h. The majority of treadmill models go as far as 20 - 22 km/h. However, there are models that can go as fast as 25 km/h.

Turning up the incline on these machines makes the workout more intense because muscles are forced to work more therefore it burns more calories. Inclination puts more pressure on the glutes and the claves. The maximum inclination on a treadmill usually goes up to 15%.
This category is completely up to the user’s preferences. Features can help make the home treadmill workouts more entertaining, diverse, and are a great help to achieve workout goals. Usually, the number of options increases with the price range.
Heart rate monitoring feature: essentially, heart rate monitors can either be hand griped or interfaced. The hand griped monitor is placed on a part of the machine that is gripped during the workout, for instance, the handles (EKG grip pulse). Interfaced heart rate monitors can be chest strap transmitters that broadcast information into the machine. However, many people find chest straps uncomfortable.
Accessories: there is also an incredibly wide range of choices. There are treadmills that are equipped with: ipad holder, reading rack, cup holders, iPod Audio, cooling fan, sound system… They don’t have too much impact on the workout but they sure make it more comfortable.
A few features that stand out:
Features make workouts on cardio machines more fun.
There are motorised and manual treadmills. Manual treadmills move when the user pushes the belt with its feet and are not suited for intense workouts but rather for walking. Nowadays, because of their efficiency, most treadmills are motorised and their power capacity is measured in peak horsepower (highest capacity the machine is capable of reaching) or continuous horsepower (constant output).
Even though the majority of treadmills surpass the 2.0 power, it’s important to consider the following for motorised treadmills:
Therefore, Treadmill power is something that needs to be adapted to the purpose of the workout. Is motor power a driving factor in the purchase? Heavy users look for power in the motor. However, for users that are just getting started or that use the treadmill for walking motor power should not be a driving factor in the purchase.
It’s vital to have a high quality and powerful treadmill motor for a long term use. Poor motors tend to overheat and require numerous costly repairs. Warranties are a good way of comparing motor and, overall, motorised treadmill quality.
Price is always one the main factors to consider when making a purchase. Smart shopping doesn’t require getting the best price, but getting the best price quality ratio. A good treadmill purchase should consider first the user’s purpose. One should choose the machine can help better achieve their fitness goals.
