About Motorised Treadmills
There are two types of treadmills that you can purchase to help you in your goal of keeping fit; Manual treadmills and Motorised treadmills. Most treadmills that are on the market today and are purchased for home use are motorised treadmills. A motorised treadmill is powered by an electric motor, which powers the belt so you don't have to work hard to get it started like you would a manual treadmill. A good motorised treadmill will have a motor that is at least 2hp, but depending on your needs they could be slightly larger or smaller. Generally speaking it's better to have more power as it takes less worth for the motor to work. A motorised treadmill with an underpowered motor will wear out quickly and soon need to be replaced so it's best to choose a good quality treadmill with a strong motor.
Motorised treadmills can range in price and features, starting at less than £300 all the way up to well over £2500. Deciding on how much to spend on a motorised treadmill will depend on your needs. If you plan to use it daily for running, it's best to spend a little more and purchase a treadmill that will be durable and will come with the features that you need. Some of the best treadmills available are made by York Fitness, Nautilus, Tunturi to name just a few.
If you want a treadmill to last for many years, spending that little extra will be worth it in the long term and while there are some very low cost motorised treadmill available, they are often poor quality with underpowered motors.
With features like speed control, calories burned the ability to workout on an incline and more, a motorised treadmill is a wise purchase for a health-conscious individual.
