In the purchase phase you must achieve a wise choice and protect your investment.

Take your time.

  • Learn from yourself by doing your homework online in the first place
  • Start by consulting a reputable distributor or website
  • Consider the questions mentioned below
  • Test the machine thoroughly in the store or elsewhere
  • Reflect on your goals and those of other members of your family

 Acquire the ideal treadmill

Keep in mind your objectives and the objectives of potential users who live in the same house before beginning your search. In most families there will be more than one person who will want to use the machine. For example, buying a “cheap”, low-quality or low-power tape for a person between 130 and 200 pounds (58 kg and 90 kg) is often a frequent error.

Begin your shopping process by researching the Internet to find the machine that interests you. Give trusted brands through the best rated websites, product reports and similar media. You should also visit the manufacturers’ websites and even their social pages to know who is using their equipment. Often, the best brands also manufacture commercial equipment for gyms and clubs.

Check before purchasing

Find out where you can buy the machine when you have already found some companies and models that interest you. Most equipment can be purchased online at manufacturers’ websites, in physical stores and retail stores. Regarding retail, specialty retailers are those that offer the best quality equipment, not the discount stores.

If you go to a store, be prepared to test the machine the way you are going to use it. Almost all machines will seem appropriate if you only test them for 5 minutes. Only when you start to give a little rhythm to the treadmill and try some of its features such as tilt or different programs; or when you run over it, you will notice significant differences in quality, comfort, vibration and noise. Try to wear comfortable sports clothes and running or running shoes. Do not hesitate to spend between 15 and 30 minutes testing the machine. A good treadmill is a great investment. Take your time.
