Treadmill Comparison - Buying a Treatmill That Suits Your Needs
When it comes to buying a treadmill the worst thing you could do is jump head first into the first "special deal" that comes your way. There are a number of different treadmill manufacturers and suppliers that produce a vast array of different quality treadmills. This article will hopefully clear the confusion by providing a detailed treadmill comparison so that you can make an informed buying decision.
In the past treadmill comparisons have been primarily comparing two different models or brands. However I feel this produces a false impression of the different treadmill features and relative quality. By taking a look at a number of different brands however you can get a more realistic idea of the advantages of each brand. Only then can you make you own buying decision based on your specific needs.
I've done the research and compared some of the best treadmill manufacturers around so that you don't have to. So without further ado...
If you are looking for a compact treadmill for the corner of the room or if you only have a small room for your fitness equipment then Universal and Tunturi treadmills are a great choice. They are either convienently small or folding so that they can be stored away if needed. At between ,300 and ,700 they are a good choice if space is an issue.
If you are thinking about buying a new treadmill but feel that the prices are a bit steep then why not consider a refurbished treadmill. These treadmills are often upto 50% of the new retail price but look and feel like the new models. The Precor C962i treadmill, StarTrac TR4500HR treadmill and Lifestride 9100HRT Style treadmill are all refurbished treadmills that have received rave reviews from customers.
If you are not wanting to pay top dollar but also don't want to lose anything in quality then these treadmills are a serious option. Visit my website below for the best supplier of these machines and a special bonus offer.
If you are looking for a treadmill with lots of interactive features then you must check out the Precor and Pro-Form treadmills. They are both trusted manufacturers that have been around for ages. They produce some of the good quality treadmills and include many special features that satisfy even the most demanding user. Highly recommended!
If you are looking for a commercial treadmill that can withstand the rigours or continual use then take a look at Star Trac treadmills. If you have ever been into your local gymnasium you will sure have seen these machines. They are true work horses, perfect for either a commercial setting or for the serious treadmill user.
Another option in this category is the Life Fitness treadmill range these are generally slightly cheaper than the Star Trac machines so if money is a problem then this range is for you.
If you are just getting back into exercising after a long lay off or you are new to it all and are overweight then you may want to look at the Noramco treadmills which have a maximum user capacity of 600lb!!! They have extended warranties, super durable with powerful motors. However you will have to dip into your pockets to get yourself one. At over ,500 each, quality doesn't come cheap!
If you are a serious treadmill user and/or don't want a machine that is going to last the distance then Endurance treadmills are a good bet. They are built to last with an exclusive in-home lifetime warranty that covers every inch of the machine forever!! These treadmills just keep going and going.
So there you have it. A detailed look at many of the common specification and features that people ask about when buying a treadmill. Remember however that I have only really scratched the surface with these treadmill comparisons. There are a number of other brands I have not mentioned that are well worth a look like Smooth Fitness which I cover in more detail on my website.
