Finding the best treadmill to buy shouldn't be a difficult thing to do. Treadmills have long been touted as a major player in the health and fitness field and for good reason. They are relatively compact, promote vital cardiovascular benefits, and are simple to use. Not to mention you don't have to get in the car and run to the gym! The only thing left is to find the right treadmill for you. Here are a few treadmill keys.
First, check with your doctor that this is an appropriate health regimen for you to embark upon. It probably is, or you wouldn't be reading this! Next, check the motor and see of it is powerful enough for your needs as relates to weight. Most brands offer several options in this area. Health monitoring features such as heart rate monitors are an added benefit to keep track of your progress. The ability to store the treadmill economically is a plus also, and sturdy hand rails and easy on/off benefits add to your experience.
Other features that you may want to consider include safety features, shock absorption, variable speeds, calorie counters (to tell you just how hard you've been working!) time/distance calculators, and of course a reasonable guarantee/warranty. The motor should be have a warranty of at least 2 years, and the more the better. Some are as long as ten years. Shop around.
Buying a treadmill online can be very easy. Not only can it save you money, but you can usually come up with good deals on shipping. Take your time and compare, and then start walking!
