How to find best treadmill:

#1 Treadmill Motor: This is the heart of your  treadmill. You want a motor that can easily power you through long workouts without breaking a sweat. Look for motor power of at least 2.5 Horsepower and more. If you plan on running, look for at least a 3.0 HP motor.

#2 Treadmill Belt: Look for a belt length of at least 55 inches. Anything shorter than that and you may feel like you’re at edge of the belt – especially when running.

#3 Cushioning: cushioning is the ability of the treadmill to absorb the force or impact of your step. You want a good cushioning system that can protect your joints, hips, knees and back. Most quality brand name treadmills like Sole, Nordictrack and Precor offer strong cushioning systems that reduce impact on your joints.

#4 Folding: Many people want a folding treadmill because it saves them space. However keep in mind that non-folding treadmills do have a slight advantage in terms of stability.

#5 Incline: Incline can help you add high-calorie burning intervals into your workouts. Most treadmills give you from 10-15% incline. look for one-touch power incline that you can change easily from your treadmill console.

#6 Console: Look for a console that is backlit with a large, easy-to-read window with feedback on your time, calories burned, speed, etc. Other console options that people like include fans to keep you cool, iPod docks with speakers and iPad holders.

#7 Extras: New treadmills have some ultra-fun toys that will make your workouts much more enjoyable. For Example – You can get treadmills with built-in TVs. You can also find treadmill with web browsers so you can surf the internet or read your emails while you walk. You can also get treadmills with HD workouts – for a virtual reality training experience. Just make sure you don’t skip essentials things to check like a good motor or a good cushioning system.

So those are the main things you need to look for when buying a treadmill. Here’s one last tip:

#8 Warranty: Look at the manufacturers warranty to get an idea of the construction quality of the treadmill – A longer warranty means a stronger machine.
