Vision T40Today’s treadmills are nothing like their forefathers. These days, treadmills come with a wide range of high-tech features, including the ability to access the Internet. A fully customized workout is what people have become accustomed to.

You’ll also notice that the newer models are very sturdy and smooth, so they tend to cause much less impact on your joints. They will also outlast many of the older treadmills.

For best results, you should always try out the treadmill first before you buy it. It’s hard to get a great idea of what it will feel like under your feet by reviews or sight alone.

Other treadmill considerations

Lifespan TR3000i Folding TreadmillMost models measure about 6 and a half feet by 3 feet. Although some are called “folding.” you should always make sure it folds up completely if that’s important to you, because some may not. You should also make sure your workout space at home or in the office has enough room for you to not only exercise on the treadmill, but step off of it safely without hitting a wall.

If you’re going to use your machine mostly for running instead of walking, you should look for one that has a longer deck length. (Many will also feature an incline of 10 to 15 percent, for those who want to run uphill.) As for safety, all treadmills today have a safety key that clips onto your clothing and will turn the machine off in the event of a fall.
