There are lots of great marketing people inrepparttar treadmill industry today. Their job is to make you think that you needrepparttar 143364 features they’re offering whenrepparttar 143365 truth is, you really don’t. So what happens is you’ll spend more money than what you’re supposed to.

This guide aims to educate you on what these marketing traps are and why you should avoid them. And as a result, you’ll be able to save money on treadmills you’ll be buying.

Extended Warranties

Some treadmill sellers will offer extended warranties on their treadmills. If this isrepparttar 143366 case, I suggest you decline. Most quality treadmill companies cover their product long enough that there’s really no need for any extensions. Besides, this option would just cause you more headaches due to some dishonest warranty companies.

Program Choices

Another way to save money on treadmills is by choosing a machine with only a few built-in workout programs. Most people don’t really use these programs and if they do, they more often than not stick to just 1 or 2 programs. So buying a treadmill with tons of programmed workouts would be a total waste of money.

Heart Rate Straps

Since working out in your target heart rate offers numerous benefits, treadmill companies nowadays offer heart rate straps for an extra fee. If this was offered to you, always say “no”. Heart rate straps are very uncomfortable when running. So you’ll probably just try it once and never use it again.
