Our hectic work schedules allow very less time for us to focus on our personal fitness. We are working 9-7 jobs and spend a couple of hours traveling to and fro. It gets very hard to spend some more time going all the way to the gym to workout.
The idea to set up a home-gym is picking up momentum. We want to make full use of the spare time we get when at home. Having a treadmill as part of your home-gym equipment is a must-have. Working out at home can help you relieve stress and maintain regular fitness. Treadmills come closest to simulating the experience of running outdoors. Even during rains, when stepping out is impossible; you can easily go for a run on your treadmill.
Of course, when purchasing a treadmill, the cost needs to be kept in mind. The treadmill segment itself would require you to apply for a personal loan from Loan Singh. You can hence, purchase it as part of a collective gym equipment set or as a stand-alone piece of fitness equipment. You need to check if the treadmill is motorized (horsepower between 1.5 and 2.5 is considered apt), noise (DC motors are less noisy) or takes up the right amount of space. Also, something to be kept in mind is the robustness it offers when the machine is inclined, how stable it is when in use, etc. Let’s look at 10 really cool treadmills for a smooth ride.
