Many people’s family, professional, and social obligations make it very difficult for them to find time to exercise. One solution to this problem is to buy a treadmill that will enable them to workout in the comfort of their own home when they have the time.
There are many different styles and types of treadmills on the market today from the inexpensive to the very expensive. One manufacturer, True Fitness, makes a variety of True treadmills for home fitness. According to the manufacturer, True treadmills are innovative, of high quality, and reliable. True treadmills are award winning and come with the industry’s best warranties.
However, according to an article published on the web site Ezine Articles, True Treadmills are not necessarily of lasting quality. According to the article, True treadmills “look and feel fantastic” and are among the “best machines for comfort and performance.” On the other hand, True treadmill’s cost of over $2,000 is a huge disadvantage because, according to the article, True Fitness does non use the most high-quality components in their treadmills. Therefore, in the long-term the machines may require costly repairs.
The lesson of this story is to do your research before investing in a treadmill. Develop a checklist of what is most important to you in a treadmill (price, durability, level of noise, size, etc.) and pick the best treadmill for your needs. Also bare in mind used treadmills can be just as good as new ones.
Once you have purchased the treadmill of your liking, what is the best way to use it? First, start slowly. The goal is to gradually increase your stamina. Second, concentrate on correct posture. Third, do not hold the rails as it can cause muscle strain in your upper body. Besides hands-free treading burns 20 percent more calories than hands-on-the-rails treading.
