When looking for a new treadmill, there are a number of things that you should consider:

 

  • Ensure that the running deck can accommodate your natural stride
  • Check minimum and maximum speeds that the treadmill can offer to make sure that the treadmill can be used as desired
  • Check the incline range and how the incline can be set. For example, the incline on some treadmills adjust automatically to help you achieve the appropriate heart rate
  • Check the features that the treadmill console offers to ensure that you can keep track of your progress when using your treadmill. You also need to ensure that the console provides programmes that will keep you and other users motivated.
  • Consider the treadmill motor. The faster you plan to run on the treadmill, the more powerful motor you need. If you are running more than walking, look for a motor with at least 1.5 horsepower continuous duty rating. Treadmills for walking will range in speed from 0 mph up to 8.75 mph. If you plan on jogging or running, the treadmill needs to be robust and should reach speeds of up to 8-12 mph.

 

In brief, the pros and cons of using a treadmill at home are: 

 

Pros

 

  • Not weather dependent
  • Precise interval training can be achieved
  • Consistent pace – less easy for the runner to slow down if tired
  • Hill training, handy if you don’t have hills where you live
  • Long runs can be combined with watching television and so, can be less mundane than doing a long run outside
  • Great for beginners

 

Cons

 

  • Not the same as running outside
  • No wind resistance
  • Running surface. Running on uneven terrain allows muscles and joints to become more adaptable
