Treadmill Best Recommended ListWritten by Tim Gorman
Runner's World Magazine conducts an evaluation, to come up with their treadmill best recommended list. Unlike other sports-related products that athletic magazine reviews on an annual basis, treadmills, they explain, are not extensively and continually redesigned and upgraded. Thus, treadmill best recommended list stays a dependable buying guide for three years for thousands of athletes and exercise-enthusiasts who look to Runner's World Magazine for fitness product information.
The treadmills that Runner's World has included on its current treadmill best recommended list made that list as a result of a lengthy process that took into consideration all sizes, shapes and endurance levels of treadmill users. They tested 12 treadmills, with 15 testers of both sexes, ranging from 110-210 pounds. Aged 25-55, these testers ran or walked hundreds of miles, at various speeds and inclines. Some were high-end athletes, others not quite so enduring. What's surprising about Runner's World treadmill best recommended list for this year is that although most participants were brand new treadmills that ended up making treadmill best recommended list were same treadmills recommended three years prior. The criteria of this list are for cushioning, stability, controls, and display, resulting in an overall rating as well.
