What is a treadmill good for?

The treadmill is known as one of the most popular pieces of fitness equipment. And there is more than one reason for that.
The first reason is: Weight loss
Working out on a treadmill helps you to lose weight and reduce body fat. There are many workout routines you can do – it also doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or an expert.
The second reason is: Heart Health
To work out, especially on a treadmill, provides an excellent cardiovascular workout and improves your heart function
The third reason is: You can exercise in the comfort of your own home
Some people don’t feel comfortable working out in front of strangers at the gym – if you’re one of these people, don’t worry! A treadmill is the perfect fitness equipment for your home. 

Why is it important to buy the right treadmill?

Buying a treadmill can be expensive and should last for several years, that’s why it should be the right one for you. The right one helps you lose weight, improves your heart rate, and with it, you can enjoy the comfort of working out at home. 

Here are a few things you need to consider before buying a treadmill:
How high is your budget?

If you want to buy a treadmill, you have to know that treadmills aren’t cheap. You have to be willing to spend more than  800 to get a quality treadmill that lasts long, is quiet, easy to use, and comfortable. But the price also depends on what you want to use the treadmill for. 

How much space do you have?

You need to measure your space before buying a treadmill because treadmills always look smaller in the store than in your home!
When you want to use the treadmill just for walking, you can go with a thinner belt, like 20”. But if you’re a runner, a 22” belt is the better option, because when mistakes happen you have more room than on a 20” belt.
Same with the length – 50” for walkers, 55” for runners, and 60” for all runners who are taller than 6′.
There are also treadmills that are foldable, it’s a good option for space-saving as well.

Do you need any extras?


Every treadmill is different, so the displays are. First, you should know what you want to have on your display. There are many options.
The features you can have are:

  • Time
  • Distance
  • Calories
  • Speed
  • Pulse
  • Incline
  • Body fat
  • Heart rate
  • Resistance stats

Product features:

Do you like watching TV or listening to music while doing your workout? Then you can buy a treadmill with the feature “Netflix” or “Spotify” or if you just want to hear your music loud, you can get a treadmill with a Bluetooth speaker.
