Why get a Treadmill?
Running and/or jogging is one of the best cardio exercises. Being able to do this indoors where your workout is not dependent on the weather and time of day is priceless. Treadmills allow you to run/speed-walk with far less strain on your knees.
Most treadmills come with software that has pre-programmed workouts that make it a no brainer when training. All you have to do is adjust when the treadmill increases/decreases its speed and/or incline. Also because you are home you are able to read or watch tv while working out, which makes the time pass even faster.
Types of Treadmills?
As the name suggest this type of treadmill has no motor and relies on the user to turn the belt by walking or running. This can be hard on your hips and knees. Also to help users gain momentum manual treadmills are usually set at an incline. This means that you always feel like you are running uphill.
Manual Treadmills tends to be smaller and lighter because there is no motor. They are also less expensive than the motorized versions.
Motorized treadmills are less-portable but are more popular when compared to the manual treadmills. They come with a rotating belt driven by an electric motor. The motorized Treadmills tends to provide a variety of features and options. They also provide a smoother walking and running experience.
