The convenience a treadmill can provide is fantastic. Runners tend to deviate from more traditional styles of exercise in favor of training indoors and in the comfort of their own home. Quite understandable too, as not all regions are hot all year round. Let’s face it, not everyone enjoys running in the rain and snow.

However, shopping for a new treadmill can present numerous problems. Decision making becomes increasingly difficult with the amount of new models and brand being released year on year. That is why we at Fresher Fitness have come up with our own ways of researching about specific models, summarizing the advantages and disadvantages of each in detailed reviews.

Types of treadmills and their description

In addition to the above, users may also need to come to a conclusion on which type of treadmill best suits their fitness and budget requirements. There are two main types, each offer there own unique benefits and drawbacks depending on how you look at it.

  • Motorized – Certainly one of the most commonplace options. Equipped with motors that power the tread belt at higher speeds, or slow. These styles tend to offer a lot more to the user in terms of training features. However, the extra specifications come at a cost. They are certainly more expensive, so it is important to find the right balance between price and quality.
  • Manual – This type is really a basic option as the name would suggest. These are usually the cheaper options and are not designed for intensive training sessions. But for a beginner looking to walk on a incline to burn a few pounds here and there, it could be a perfect match.

How we determine ratings and quality of a treadmill

Research can be quite be quite a daunting task in this field. With the amount of variety on today’s market users are finding it increasingly difficult to find a suitable match for their gyms. Our reviews are designed to make this process a lot less time consuming and summarized in a way that consumers can better understand the overall value of a specific brand and model. In the list below, you will see the main things we look at.

  • Comfort – This can include several things ranging from the amount of running space on the tread belt through to how well the decking absorbs your stride impact. Comfort should always be of paramount importance and that is why we always research more into this in our reviews.
  • Training Features – This covers everything and anything that is designed to aid you improve your fitness and reach your goals. Usually this includes speed settings, inclines, declines and exercise programs.
  • Durability – The overall sturdiness of the model. Will it stand the test of time? What is the maximum weight capacity? What is the frame and parts made of? These are questions we will be looking to answer.
  • Value for money – When we list out all the specs and features for a particular model, we ask ourselves, does the price reflect the overall quality included? Only then can we determine the value provided.

Each of these points can go a long way in helping you find a great treadmill that is everything you wanted it to be and much more. For further buying guides and brand specific details, why not browse through the list at the top of the page.
