Why buy a treadmill?

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in the forced closure of every gym in the country. In addition, non-essential travel is no longer considered safe, which means a lot of us will need to exercise from home.

A treadmill is a great option for indoor cardio and aerobics. When combined with a standing desk, you can even use them for light exercise while working from home. Unlike some exercise equipment, they are suitable for all ages and fitness levels. If you like the idea of walking, running or climbing while staying in the same place, here are the best places to buy online.

How much do treadmills cost?

Treadmills range in price from around $200 to over $10,000, depending on the brand, materials used and extra features. If you're just looking to improve your daily steps via low-intensity walking, an entry-level treadmill should be fine.

Choosing the right treadmill

Apart from price, the first thing you need to consider is size and available space. If you don't have a dedicated home gym set-up, go for a compact model that can be folded and stored away. Many models are specifically designed to take up as little space as possible.

With that said, you also need to factor in your height and the type of exercise you intend on doing. For example, a 180-centimetre running enthusiast will require a treadmill with a longer belt length than someone who is shorter and just likes to walk. Most treadmill models list the unit dimensions and available running area on the product page. Naturally, maximum weight should also be considered.

If you're serious about exercise, motor power is another important consideration. If you plan to do lots of running and/or weigh more than the average person, a higher horse power of 3.5 or more is preferable.

You also need to consider any extra features you might like to have in a treadmill such as the number of speed levels, preset workout programs, touchscreens, inbuilt fitness trackers and adjustable inclines. Feature-heavy treadmills tend to be more expensive so it pays to stick to features you will actually use.

Finally, you should factor durability into your buying decision. Most treadmill manufacturers don't share average lifespan information, but you can get a good indication by reading online reviews on sites like Amazon.
