A walking treadmill is a great way to get fit indoors. Treadmills have been a favorite for decades but choosing one from the vast selection available on the market can be tough. There are many different options and price ranges to choose from so what are the key points to look out for when choosing a treadmill for home use?
The first thing to consider, even before the budget you might have available, is the type of exercise you are intending to carry out. Treadmills for home use tend to be available in two variants, one for those looking to carry out walking exercises and one for those who want to jog or run. The key difference is often the length of the running board. If you opt for a treadmill for walking exercises and want a cheap option you can find manual incline treadmills with running boards typically shorter than 50 inches available on the market for around $100.Continue Reading…
Manual walking treadmills offer a good workout because the user has to power them up so they have inbuilt resistance that can be altered by changing the incline. If you have nearer $300 to spend you can get a reasonable quality motorized treadmill with a running board under 50 inches that will offer full digital control and digital incline with a host of features. These machines often purport to be useful for running on but the running plate is generally not long enough for an average height persons running stride. Most will try to blind you to the fact by offering a motor that achieves 10 mph which is suitable for jogging, but unless you are short in height don’t go for a treadmill with a short board for running.
If you are looking for a home walking treadmill specifically for jogging then try to opt for a minimum length of 50 inches but a preferable length of 52 inches and above for the running board. You won’t find many manual treadmills suitable for jogging these days, most are motorized. When choosing a motorized treadmill for jogging look for one with a motor which has a 2 continuous horsepower motor. These will give a comfortable 0-10 mph speed range usually in increments of 0.5 mph that can be achieved without stressing the motor so it will last longer. You can expect a home jogging and walking treadmill motorized with incline to cost at least $600 but occasionally Amazon will have a model for $500 on discount.
Other factors you should consider are whether you will have space for a treadmill and whether you will need to move the machine around. It goes without saying a manual walking treadmill is lighter than a motorized jogging treadmill, although folding variants can be bought to suit the type of exercise you want to carry out.
