Review of Small Treadmills For Home Use

20 Sep

Small Treadmills for Home

If you’re like me, you don’t exactly have a lot of room in your house for a treadmill. Maybe you live in New York City, a small apartment, or in your parent’s basement.  So you want to find small treadmills for home use, so let’s talk about some features to look for and then I’ll give you some treadmill reviews.

First things first, you want to find a unit that is either foldable or very compact.  Remember you will probably be paying more for the compact size (less is more!), and you might be sacrificing some features.  For example, your treadmill will have less weight capacity due to the compactness of the machine.  The benefit is that you can put the treadmill in small spaces.

First I’ll be reviewing the LifeSpan TR100 treadmill.  This impressive folding treadmill folds to about 11 inches high, so you can store the treadmill in a closet or under a bed.  It includes five built in workout programs with quick speed buttons, and is good for those who want to use the treadmill occasionally.  This means that if you are training for the Olympics, go with a different model!  Anyways, this model is great for keeping in a condo, college dorm, or apartment.  It is recommended to use  this model only about 2 or 3 times a week.  The LCD area is blue and gives you results such as time, miles run, heartrate, speed, calories burned.  There are included speakers and even a headphone jack.  The machine is already assembled so you don’t have to sit there putting the machine together, and is very easy to use.  As mentioned earlier, the weight limit is less than that of a regular treadmill, and so is the speed.  It only has a 250 pound weight limit and only goes up to 8 miles per hour, with a 1.5 horsepower motor.  A great treadmill, but a little pricy at $778 from Walmart.

Next I’ll be reviewing the more upgraded Lifespan TR200 treadmill.  Also folding to 11 inches thin, this treadmill is different from the TR100 because it includes 3 incline features and includes up to 10 different incline levels for that “cross country feel”.  Great for walking and very portable, yet still a sturdy machine.  Includes 6 (vs 5) built in workout programs, a large LCD display with time, incline, heartrate, speed, distance, calories burned, and even steps walked.  Quick buttons are included to go at any speed up to 8 miles per hour, with a weight limit of 250 pounds.  The overall dimensions are as follows:  52 inches height (h), 31 inches width (w), 60 inches depth (d).  A little bit more pricy than the TR100 at $871.99 from Walmart.

Last there is the ProForm Power795 model.  The best of all three models, it features a 2.5 horsepower commercial motor and runs up to 12 miles per hour.  There are 12 incline levels, and a 56 inch long treadmill belt with the ProShox technology built in.  There are 16 built in workouts depending on your fitness goals, and folds vertically for storage.   The 795 is ifit compatible, includes an mp3 jack, has a built in workout fan, and best of all includes a lifetime frame and motor warranty.

As you can see, there are many models to choose from, and I hope my guide was a good starting point for you.  Thanks for the read!

Treadmill vs Elliptical Weight Loss : The Truth YOU need to know!

5 Sep

Treadmill vs Elliptical Weight Loss

When people want to purchase an exercise machine for their home, so that they do not have to go to the gym, the top options are either a treadmill or elliptical. What one produces the best weight loss though? Both of them can provide the same amount of weight loss depending on what type of workout you want, and what type of workout your body needs to lose the most weight. The treadmill vs. elliptical weight loss question is the first thing that comes to mind when people are looking to buy a good exercise machine. Choosing what machine to purchase should take some time because you have to decide what you want out of the machine, and what results you are looking for that will match your body type. Many people just pick one of these without thinking because they take the advice of their friends who has one or the other. However, before spending money on a large product you should research how it works, and how it will help you to lose the weight you want. Some things to look for in treadmill vs. elliptical weight loss is the ease of use, what parts of the body are worked, how many calories you will burn, and if it beginner-friendly.

Treadmill vs elliptical weight loss

In the treadmill vs elliptical weight loss debate, the treadmill was purchased more because it was the first cardiovascular workout machine that you could put in your home. There are various benefits to purchasing a treadmill, and it is one of the best workout machines to have in your home, but there are areas of the body that the treadmill does not work. One benefit in choosing a treadmill over an elliptical is that it is versatile, and you can run, walk, go up an incline, and even undergo numerous workout programs. The treadmill also has natural movement, which is unlike other machines that force you to workout muscles you normally do not during your day. On the treadmill, you are either walking or running instead of the uncomfortable positions some newer machines force you to do, so you are losing weight naturally. A few of the cons that come with treadmills include safety issues (running on an incline can be dangerous if you are not trained), unnatural handlebars that can get in the way, and it can be tough on your joints. Also, in the treadmill vs. elliptical weight loss discussion the treadmill is the oldest exercise machine (since the 1800s), and it is still one of the most liked home workout machines.

The elliptical is the newer of the two cardiovascular machines in the treadmill vs elliptical weight loss dispute, but it is just as popular (if not more) as the treadmill. There are many benefits that come with getting an elliptical over a treadmill in the treadmill vs elliptical weight loss debate. The most popular reason for why the elliptical is chosen is that it has non-impact conditioning, which means that you can run without causing impact on your joints. Many people suffer joint problems with treadmills, so the elliptical is much better for your body than the treadmill. Also, the elliptical allows you to workout both your lower body and you upper body because they have moveable handles attached to them. Another benefit to purchasing an elliptical is that you can turn backwards to do a workout, which doing this will work different muscles than when facing forward – so you can workout all of your muscles. Studies have shown that you will lose about the same amount of calories on both machines, so choosing what one works for you depends on your body type and what workout(s) you want.
