Research clearly shows that people of all ages that get more routine exercise are healthier, have few issues with weight control, and tend to live happier, healthier lives. Routine exercise does more than keep us physically healthy, it also helps to increase our feelings of self-confidence plus it releases those "feel good" endorphins into our brains and body, helping to calm stress and relieve anxiety naturally.

 

Treadmills have long been popular as a way to exercise indoors, without having to worry about weather, road or surface conditions, or even safety issues. Home treadmills are a great idea to add to a personal workout area in your home, but they can also be a very effective stand alone piece of exercise equipment for anyone.

 

If you have never purchased a home treadmill before there are several factors you may wish to consider. Perhaps the most important is the budget issue as there is a considerable difference in pricing between models. Most home treadmills are priced according to the features they offer. For example, a fully customizable and programmable treadmill is going to be more than a standard style model, since it offers more in the way of features. However, for most users, all the additional features may not be worth the additional cost. Someone that wants to be able to continue to increase their cardiovascular workout and needs a lot of options won't be happy with a standard model, since the treadmill may not be able to do all they want. Deciding what you need, what you would like to have and what you will never use is important before you go shopping.

 

Check the motorized equipment on the home treadmill models you are considering and find out what the stated continuous duty output is. This is the amount of force or output that the motor can generate over a sustained or continuous basis. This is particularly important if you have a programmable model that will be changing the level of incline throughout the programmed workout. Without a sustained or continuous duty output the treadmill may slow down dramatically in the incline position.

 

Low impact decks on treadmills are an important consideration, especially for those planning on fairly intensive workouts. A low impact deck provides more spring when running or walking on the home treadmill, preventing knee and joint problems associated with running on standard types of home treadmills. Low impact decks are fairly popular on most models, however the very low cost models may not be designed with this additional safety feature in place.

 

Always try out the home treadmill at the store before brining it home. Even if you are buying online, try out in person before making a decision. What looks great in a picture or a written description may not fit your needs. In addition ask for the measurements of the fully assembled home treadmill to make sure it will fit in your space. Not all home treadmills are the same size, plus there does have to be room to the back and sides to allow safe operation and use of the equipment.
