How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for a motorised treadmill

Best practices for motorised treadmill usage and care.

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for best treadmills

1.1 Budget

Budget remains the foremost consideration, especially when you are buying something as expensive as a treadmill. And it is both essential and wise to set your price range when you decide to buy a treadmill. As per our research, to get a decent treadmill which lasts longer, you need to spend between Rs.15,000-Rs.20,000.

And it is both essential and wise to set your price range when you decide to buy a treadmill. As per our research, to get a decent treadmill which lasts longer, you need to spend between Rs.15,000-Rs.20,000.

1.2 Space and Folding

After the budget, we come to the size restriction. Usually, high-quality treadmills are relatively bulky, and it helps them in maintaining stability when they are in use. However, that doesn’t mean the rest of them doesn’t deserve your attention. Treadmill size also depends on the cost, the higher the price, the bigger is the size.

Users who have a dedicated space for a treadmill usually go for the non-folding treadmills. These are heavy-duty frames treadmills that cannot be folded. For other buyers, who prefer folding treadmills, manufacturers have added a folding mechanism- hydraulic system- to make the job easier. It allows the deck to be raised and lowered more smoothly.

1.3 Requirement

It might seem odd that we have put ‘requirement’ in third place, but with plenty of treadmill options available in the market, it is essential to consider budget and space before anything else. It helps in quick elimination, and then you are left with relevant options.

Based on our research, we have made a few combinations:

  • Fitness user: This is the user category with the highest number. You could either be buying a treadmill to start with the workout, or you previously had a low activity level, and you are getting a treadmill to see if you stick with it. Therefore, a treadmill, which has entertainment feature, a variety of workout programs, and high durability to keep up with the user as they move forward, is the right choice. This is a people pleaser kind of treadmill as this comes at a reasonable price and accommodates a person with a wide fitness range.

  • Supplement runner: Supplemental runners are those who take help of running to improve their primary sport. For example, weight lifters buying a treadmill as they need to add cardio to their workouts. For this category, treadmills which is heavy, durable, have an extended warranty and larger workout program bank will remain great.

  • Training: If you are an active runner, and due to harsh weather conditions, you are not able to run outside and want to continue your training, you come under this category. If you run 80km per week, you certainly need something extra- incline ranges of 15%, more workout programs, customised console type. These treadmills are highly durable and have heavier frames.

  • Post-injury: If you were an active runner before the injury, then coming back to your original speed can be difficult. Due to the injury, you can also have a few limitations. One of the most important things to look for in this case is, a treadmill with proper cushioning as you don’t want any shock or stress on any of your joints. High-end treadmills are right for you because they will accommodate as you recover and later, they will complement your heavy running workout.

  • Senior-citizen: A treadmill requirement for senior citizens depend on their activity level, whether it is low or high. In the case of low-level activity, you might not go for more than 6MPH and perhaps not even choose the incline option. Therefore, a treadmill with a speed of up to 10 MPH, incline range of up to 10% and a shorter warranty period will suffice in this situation. However, if you maintain a high level of activity, a treadmill that can reach 12MPH speed and has broad workout program will be good. However, in both cases, proper cushioning and emergency plug are essential.

1.5 Warranty

Just like any other machine, the treadmill also has its life and experience wear and tear. For a treadmill’s warranty, manufacturers cover frame, motor and parts separately.

Our recommendation for warranty coverage is:

  • Lifetime frame warranty.

  • At least one year warranty on motor and parts.

Motor and frame are the things which are more prone to wear and tear. Therefore, the more number of years warranty you get on these the better it is.

Motor and frame are the things which are more prone to wear and tear. Therefore, the more number of years warranty you get on these the better it is.

1.6 Power

Treadmill power is calculated in two units, i.e. CHP ad HP. CHP (Continuous Horsepower ) indicates the power that the motor can handle continuously, without lagging or slowing down under strain. Whereas, HP (Horsepower) is used to measure only the top strength of the motor or when it is at peak. CHP is the most reliable way to measure treadmill motor strength.

Let’s see the most common CHP motor power of treadmills and what do they indicate.

  • 1.0 CHP – Treadmill will 1.0 CHP motor can accommodate only walkers and likely. There are fewer chances that it will last longer under any stress than a casual walker.

  • 2.0 CHP – Treadmill with this motor is best for walkers and jogging. Due to small size, the motor is generally quieter than larger treadmill motor sizes. Most of the budgeted treadmills come with this motor size.

  • 3.0 CHP – 3.0 CHP motor is ideal for regular runners. Also, this is the right size if multiple family members use a treadmill, and they all have varying fitness levels.

  • 4.0 CHP – The top home treadmill market have 4.0 CHP motors. This much power is required by serious runners who make high physical demands on their equipment.

  • 5.0 CHP – Treadmills found in gyms and health clubs come with 5.0 CHP motor.

1.7 Track Speed

The standard track speed of most treadmills falls between 1-20 kilometres per hour. The below-given information will give you a better understanding of the speed setting.

  • 1.5-5.9 KPH – Maximum people walk at this speed. It is right to burn fat and is considered moderate exercise if you are walking briskly.  

  • 6-8 KPH – An average person jog at this speed. This falls in the moderate exercise range and is a fat-burning speed.

  • 8-12.5 KPH – You reach aerobic exercise territory at this speed range. Choose this speed for rigorous exercise. For most treadmill users, 12KPH remains maximum speed. They do not go beyond this.  

  • 12.6+ KPH – This speed is suitable only for a short period.

  • 12.6+ KPH – This speed is suitable only for a short period.

1.8 Incline

The inclination is vital for quick fitness results. It decreases the stress on joints and helps in targeting particular muscle groups. A good quality treadmill is one that has an incline range between 0% to 20%. There are treadmills with decline feature as well. The motorised treadmill also has an auto-incline feature which automatically detects the speed and decides the inclination required.

1.9 Cushioning

The treadmill is soft on your joints than any other surface because of the cushioning feature. Not only it reduces the impacts by almost 15% – 40% but also promote stamina. To determine how good the cushioning is, look for patented cushioning technology. It implies that more focus has been put on this feature.

1.10 Belt Area

Treadmill belt area can become a restriction if not of proper length. Usually, treadmills have a dimension- 17*35 inches (length*width). The standard treadmill track length for walking and running is 55 inches and 58-60 inches, respectively. In contrast, the width remains 20 inches. Furthermore, commercial treadmills designed for larger trainees can have 63 inches length and 22 inches in width.

According to us, you should look for following belt area:

  • 55*20 – Ideal for walkers and light joggers, and those who are not over 6’1”.

  • 60*20 – Ideal for walkers, joggers, and runners.

  • 60*22 – Perfect for both walkers and runners who utilise high inclines.

1.11 Belt Durability

Treadmill belts come by many names- walking belt, tread belt, running belt, but they only have different terms and not nature. Treadmill belts can be distinguished on the basis of:

  • Ply – Ply is the belt thickness. A 1-ply belt is acceptable as long as you just want to walk and buying the treadmill for home use. A 2-ply belt is of commercial quality and makes less noise.

  • Stretch – Get a non-stretch belt treadmill as that means the belt is less prone to developing slack.

  • Roller size – Roller size directly affects the lifespan of the treadmill belt. Larger roller diameters mean less stress on the motor.

  • Lubrication – Treadmills need lubrication for smooth performance. High-end treadmill tracks come with the auto-lubrication feature as well. They have silicone in their belt.

1.12 Frame Strength

Yes, most of the treadmills come with a lifetime warranty on their frames. But that nowhere means you are ready to accept a motorised treadmill with a wobbly frame. Therefore, look for the following to ensure frame strength.

  • Crossbars as they add to the stability.

  • The overall weight of the treadmill.

  • Width of the base.

  • Curved uprights as that keep the console steady.

1.13 Portability

Some treadmill owners have a fixed place for the machine. However, some of them do move their treadmills. Weight and wheels are the two things that affect the portability of a treadmill. Heavier treadmills are difficult to move. If you want to move your treadmill often, buy a budgeted treadmill as that is generally lighter. Or you can choose a treadmill with six wheels or so as that can be moved upright without tilting it.

1.14 Pre-set Programs

There is more than a manual function to a treadmill. The motorised treadmill comes with a great set of pre-set workout programs which lets you take charge of your workout. A standard treadmill has 12 pre-set programs, but there are treadmills with more programs as well. More programs do sound good. But you need to ask yourself that if you need that many programs or does it has your fav program? Programs do increase the treadmill cost; therefore, take the decision wisely.

1.15 Accessories

Accessories are not necessary, but they add to the comfort. Some of the options are as given below.

  • Holders – Treadmills have some kind of holders built into them, be it mobile, water bottle holders, device trays.

  • Tablet holders – Tablet holder, is usually mounted above the console. This gives you access to the entertainment while not covering up the treadmill display.

  • USB port – USB port is another common feature which comes handy at the time of charging a device or listening to music.

1.16 Heart-rate Monitor

Most of the motorised treadmills have heart rate monitoring device at cross handlebar grips. However, this doesn’t give accurate results. Treadmills with wireless heart rate monitoring capabilities give you precise output. It includes an adjustable chest strap with which you can monitor your heart rate. The chest strap can be included in the treadmill purchase. If not, you need to buy it separately.

1.17 Extras

Features of a treadmill are not limited to the above seventeen. Brands offer something extra as well to their customers.

  • Automated features – Automated features like auto breeze adjusts the fan speed to the intensity of your workout.  

  • Entertainment options – Continuously running can be boring at times or a few people simply like to listen to the playlist at the time of the workout. For those, treadmills come with entertainment options. Low price treadmills have in-built speakers and an audio jack so you can play your playlist. High-level brands offer touchscreen console to workout with a virtual personal trainer.

  • Bluetooth – Bluetooth feature is for those who want to track and sync their workout with other fitness apps like Fitbit. Some treadmill manufacturers have their own apps as well, which can be synced with the treadmill.

  • Passport – This is a unique feature compatible only in a handful of treadmills. This has to be purchased separately. In this the Passport player allows you to take virtual runs in different parts of the world such as Hawai’s beaches and the French Riviera coastline.

  • Foot and handrails - Handrails come handy if you want extra stability or need to impede natural arm motion while exercising. Wide foot rails on the sides of the moving belt make it easier for you to get back on the belt whenever you are ready without getting off the treadmill completely. You need to ensure that the handrails are not getting in the way of arms at the time of running as that can disrupt the balance.

  • User profile - This feature is important if multiple people use your treadmill as you can store the data for individual user IDs. This is not it. The separate IDs let you own odometer, set your own goals and keep a database of workout information. This is like having your own treadmill for each member.
