The 4 Most Common Attributes of a Quality Treadmill

Written by Aaron Co

With allrepparttar marketing hype consumers are facing today, it’s quite hard to differentiate a quality treadmill from an inferior treadmill. That’s why I researched on what quality treadmills have that inferior treadmills don’t. This article, The 4 Most Common Attributes of a Quality Treadmill, wasrepparttar 148624 result of that research.

The traits below are vital to a treadmill’s performance and arerepparttar 148625 things that you’ll always find in a quality treadmill.

Continuous Horsepower

One ofrepparttar 148626 most important attributes of a quality treadmill is its horsepower or HP. There are 2 ways to measurerepparttar 148627 HP of a motor, through “peak duty” or “continuous duty”. Treadmills with a continuous duty horsepower mean thatrepparttar 148628 motor can maintain a certain horsepowerrepparttar 148629 whole workout. Peak duty horsepower meansrepparttar 148630 treadmill may be able to reach that horsepower briefly, but won’t be able to sustain it.

Most inferior treadmills try to make their machines look better by listing their peak duty rather than their continuous duty horsepower. Quality treadmills have nothing to hide and would always put their continuous duty horsepower upfront for everyone to see.

Powerful Motor

When I say power, what I really mean is thatrepparttar 148631 motor should be able to pump power with ease throughoutrepparttar 148632 whole machine. For example, a 2.5HP continuous duty motor in an entry level model is powerful, butrepparttar 148633 same cannot be said if that motor is in a commercial treadmill, since it would be way too weak to makerepparttar 148634 huge commercial unit function.
