Motor (HP and maximum speed):
When you purchase a treadmill, choose a machine of a speed so that enough scope of pre-set maximum speed is open. This way, you can increase your performance without letting the fitness machine run permanently at full throttle. Motors with digital drive run more precise and smoother than common motors because of the quick digital signal processing. A digital drive motor is more quiet and more durable.
Size of running surface:
Training comfort and step safety increase with a bigger running surface. The quicker the speed on the treadmill, the stronger is the change in speed and incline and the taller the exercising person (and his/her stride length), the bigger the running surface of the treadmill should be.
Gerade Trainierende mit Rücken- oder Knieproblemen sollten Laufband kaufen, dass ein sehr gute Dämpfung hat. Die meisten unserer Laufbänder sind sehr gut gedämpft, wie die Modelle von Life Fitness, Taurus Fitness, cardiostrong, LiveStrong, Vision Fitness und Horizon Fitness. Laufbänder von Tunturi, Bremshey, Kettler, und U.N.O. sind gut gedämpft; Daum-, Bremshey-, und Reebok-Laufbänder befriedigend bis ausreichend.
Elektronische / manuelle Neigungsverstellung:
Starter models are often just equipped with a manual incline adjustment. Exercising on the treadmill has to be interrupted for changing and the incline angle has to be changed manually. If the machine is equipped with an electronic incline adjustment, the incline can be comfortably changed at the touch of a button while exercising. Your training becomes more varied and more flexible.
Training programs provide diversion and increase motivation while exercising.
You can even save your own training program and save your personal tour for some models.
Pulse control/pulse controlled training programs:
The appropriate pulse value is given in a chart for models with pulse control by means of age, gender, and desired training target (increase in stamina, fat burning, etc.). The treadmill controls speed and/or incline angle depending upon the model, so that you always remain in the pre-set heart rate. This way, you exercise in an optimized way which is good for your health.
