Buying A New Treadmill

Buying a new treadmill is fun. You just need to know your exercising needs and expectations that you have from the treadmill. First of all, ask a few simple questions:

What is my budget?
How much space I have to provide to my running machine?
How frequently will I work out on my new treadmill?
What treadmill brands and models make me a crazy runner? (This is to judge your preference, if it is, towards a particular brand of treadmill)

Answers to these questions will enable you to purchase a quality treadmill that will fulfill your basic exercising needs.

After you have made decision for what kind of treadmill you want to purchase, you must look for the specific features and peculiarities you want in your treadmill. There is no use of buying a treadmill with features that do not suit your requirements. Such treadmill will only result in wastage of money.

Here are some vital features to make a best treadmill deal:
A treadmill ought to be comfortable first. It should provide adequate surface length and cushioning for the person.
Speed and incline controls should be located at the place that is easy to reach while exercising.
An emergency stop switch should also be there at an easy access point.
Any treadmill should be equipped with a strong motor (1.5 horsepower or greater) that can handle high speeds (5 to 10 mph) and heavy loads (over 175lb).
You should run or walk on the treadmill before buying it.
If putting the foot on the belt causes the belt to slip or hesitate, or makes the motor groan or grind then this is surely not the right treadmill for you.

Keep all these features in mind while purchasing a new treadmill. A treadmill equipped with all these necessary and additional features will make it a perfect exercise equipment for your healthier life!
