Used Treadmills or New - Find the Best Buy
When embarking on a lifetime journey of health and fitness or just looking for different ways to exercise, home exercise equipment is a good place to start and it doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg to get started. Used treadmills can be just as good as new ones and even better, considering they are also much less expensive than buying a brand new machine. There are also so many different places where you can find used treadmills these days, including local stores, online merchants, and even thrift stores.
A quality, brand name treadmill may cost you a grand or more, but if you are insistent on buying something new, you would be wise to research all of the brands and models that are available. What size do you want? What type of features are you looking for? Do you need one that will incline? What do the reviews say? On the other hand, if you are looking for a used model, you will need to ask yourself the same questions, because you will find the same types and models at the used prices as you will at the more expensive prices.
The size of your treadmill will depend on the size of the room in which you plan to keep it. The smaller the room, the more compact you will need your treadmill to be. Would you like a treadmill with several types of programs? There are many of those available -- programs that let you lock in a good warm up, a complete interval workout right down to miles per hour and seconds or minutes you wish to spend at each speed, and programs that will let you work out on an incline -- even programs that will lock in all three of these features for your workout. Still, features and size are not everything there is to buying a good machine. The best way to know which model is best for you is to find out what others have to say about their experience.
Once you have your choices narrowed down, it is time to start your search. You might find a brand new one at a decent discount, or be surprised at the used treadmills that are available at an even lower price.
You will be amazed at what you can find for sale online. Just try looking for the model you want on auction sites, or on online classified sites selling new and used treadmills in your area.
When you find what you are looking for at a good price, remember that it is always wise to try it out before you make the purchase. Your dream machine should be a good fit for your body and feel comfortable whether you are walking or running, and you want to be sure that all of the great features that are advertised are in working order. Whether you choose from new or used treadmills, your machine is an investment that should last you for years into the future.
