Best Home Treadmills - Some Must-Know Facts
By Sarah Gold

If you're looking for the best home treadmills, you're in the right place. Walking and running are very good exercise. They're great for the heart and great to lose weight. Walking outside though, is not always convenient, (if at all possible), like when it rains, snows or it's very freezing. Having a treadmill at home will give you all the advantages of walking or running without the inconveniences. Anyways, in this article I will discuss the best home treadmills and what features they share.

Fist of all, be aware that the best home treadmills keep changing - there's no treadmill that holds that title forever. The reason is that everybody has different needs and what one might consider best might be worst for someone else. If you're a professional runner and need a treadmill with a strong motor for intense workouts, buying an economical treadmill (for under $1,000) will definitely not be for you. On the other hand, if you just want cardio workouts or you need some help losing weight, an entry level, budget treadmill will fit the bill. Paying for an expensive treadmill will be like buying an Alaskan fur coat for a Florida winter. So, when you're looking for the best home treadmills consider your needs and buy accordingly.

Okay, when looking for the best home treadmills, there are some basic essentials that you should look at: the size, the motor, the cushioning, the warranty, and the price.

With size, I mean should you buy a folding treadmill or not. If you live in a small apartment and there's no extra space or you're thinking of placing the treadmill in a multi-use room, consider getting a folding treadmill. The quality of folding treadmills has improved greatly.

When looking at the prices of some of the best home treadmills on the market, you'll pay the most for the motor. Generally, the stronger the motor, the more you'll have to pay. And that depends on your treadmills goals. As stated above, if you're planning to use your treadmill extensively and for intense workouts, definitely pay more for a stronger motor. Otherwise, a cheaper model will fit your needs.

While you're looking around at the best home treadmills, bear in mind that a quality cushioning system is very important. It protects your back, your joints and your ligaments. Bad cushioning can cause injuries and physical pain that can easily be avoided.

Finally, look at the warranty. Any of the best home treadmills you're thinking about should have a minimum 5-10 year warranty on the motor and a lifetime warranty on the treadmill frame. A warranty is like a vote of quality from the manufacturer, so go for it.

In this article I told you the features you should consider when you're looking at the best home treadmills.
