The treadmill is a good substitute for morning/evening runs or walks, which makes me able to have a physical activity each day despite the weather. We have cold winters and rainy autumns here, and I wouldn’t say I like gyms. That’s why I decided to start walking one summer; however, I understood I wouldn’t be able to do it the whole year. So treadmill is a savior in my case. The doctor says I have low testosterone and need daily physical activity combined with supplements I buy them here: So if you guys hesitate before buying a treadmill, you know what to do
Home exercise equipment differs from professional counterparts primarily in price. They are cheaper and are specially configured for individual user parameters. Professional trainers are designed for intensive 24/7 use and are made of more durable materials.
A small apartment is not a reason to refuse home workouts. On sale you can find elliptical trainers or treadmills for small spaces. They are a standard size, yet compact, portable and easy to fold.
When buying, keep in mind that the simulators cannot be used on the street. This can negatively affect the quality of the equipment: the grease will thicken, the computer will start to work intermittently, parts will rust. The machine must be placed in a dry and well ventilated area.

At treadmills, you need to regularly lubricate the running belt, periodically check and tighten its tension, make sure that its settings do not go astray.

When buying elliptical and exercise bikes, you need to monitor the condition of the lubrication of the bearings - they are subject to friction, so they need to be lubricated regularly. To do this, you can use inexpensive silicone grease.

Before you decide to buy a treadmill, consider the following factors:

Budget: How much would you like to spend?
Extract: Consider program options, heart rate monitors, and additional features.
Users: How many people will use it and how often?
Space: How much space do you have? Should I buy a folding treadmill?
Application: How will you use it? Running places more stress on the machine than walking and requires a longer strap for a longer stride.
Treadmills can be safely called an investment in health. At first, the prices may seem “biting”. However, given that they can be in use for many years, you can consider that all this time they will be the very tool that really serves the cause of health promotion. And you won't have to buy a new one for a long time. Dive into the world of treadmills here.
Before buying a treadmill, consider the following:
  1. Space: Measure the available space in your home where the treadmill will be placed to ensure it fits comfortably.
  2. Budget: Determine your budget and look for treadmills that fall within your price range.
  3. Features: Consider the features you need, such as incline, speed, workout programs, and heart rate monitoring, based on your fitness goals and preferences.
  4. Motor power: Look for a treadmill with a motor that is suitable for your intended usage, whether it's for walking, jogging, or running.
  5. Belt size: Consider the size of the treadmill's running belt, making sure it's wide and long enough for your stride.
  6. Cushioning: Look for a treadmill with adequate cushioning to reduce impact on your joints and provide a comfortable workout experience.
  7. Stability: Check the treadmill's stability and weight capacity to ensure it can safely support your weight and intensity of workouts.
  8. Noise level: Consider the noise level of the treadmill, especially if you plan to use it in a shared space or apartment building.
  9. Brand reputation and reviews: Read customer reviews and consider the reputation of the brand for quality and customer service.
  10. Warranty and after-sales support: Check the warranty offered by the manufacturer and the availability of after-sales support for maintenance and repairs.
By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision when buying a treadmill that meets your fitness needs and budget.
