Treadmill Guide - The best treadmill for the best price

The next part of this treadmill guide covers more areas that need to be looked at and considered before you buy a treadmill.

The treadmill fame needs to be strong, sturdy, and last. Treadmill frames are usually made out of steel or aluminum; with each having its own advantages and disadvantages. But it basically comes down to personal preference. Please be sure you get a good warranty on the frame!

The cushioning is the ability of the treadmill to absorb the force of your step. Better cushioning means less pressure on your joints and ligaments. Sole Treadmills rate as one of the best when it comes to treadmill cushioning.

According to “Runners World”, stability is the most important factor in a treadmill. Stability means how smooth the treadmill is when you are using it, ie., how smooth a ride the treadmill gives you.

Something to remember when buying treadmills is that generally you get what you pay for so if you are looking for a treadmill with high stability you can expect to pay at least $1000 and are two that provide high stability rankings.

The control panel on the treadmill is also something to consider. It's important to have a panel that is user-friendly so that you can understand it clearly. There is really no point having all these great features if you don’t know how to use them! :-) But most importantly are the safety controls. There should clearly be a start and stop button that will work as soon as you push it.

I hope this treadmill guide will provide you with more than enough information to make an informed and educated purchase. If you have any questions on any specific treadmill or how to be sure you are getting the best for your money, please feel free to contact me!
