Treadmill Basics

Fact 4: Making The Decision

There are treadmills that purely traditional in the sense that they don't have a single program running them. There are treadmills with maximum horsepower. There are treadmills with low power. So before you buy, try to decide what you want. Use the questions below as a guide in arriving at a decision:

Do you want running or walking programs included?

Do you need a heartrate monitor?

Do you want a function that lets you hook your treadmill up to a website such as ifit.com for new workouts?

Do you need a treadmill that folds (usually more expensive) or do you have enough space to house a treadmill full time?

How easy is the treadmill to maintain?

Once you have all that down, then you should be ready to the next step.
