Inrepparttar market for a treadmill? Finding that they are a little more expensive than you thought, at least to getrepparttar 144678 ones withrepparttar 144679 features you want? Used treadmills may well be what you need. Used treadmills are big business, and growing fast.

First, I hear you ask, why should I buy a treadmill at all, let alone a used treadmill?

Treadmills arerepparttar 144680 most popular of allrepparttar 144681 fitness equipment in use inrepparttar 144682 US today. The National Sporting Goods Association estimates that treadmill sales last year topped $750 million. Thatís big business. It is estimated that around 8% to 9% ofrepparttar 144683 population own a treadmill. You dorepparttar 144684 math, but to me thatís around 20 million people. Thatís a lot of treadmills that have been bought, and a lot of treadmills which may soon become used treadmills for sale.

Why is exercising on a treadmill so popular? A couple of reasons. The first is that exercising on a treadmill is done indoors. No rain, hail or snow to contend with. No muggers. No-one to poke fun at your running shoes that arenít quiterepparttar 144685 latest fashion, or that tummy that you are trying so hard to get rid of. Treadmills mean that you can do your exercise anonymously.

Single mum? Pregnant? No matter. Do your exercise whilerepparttar 144686 kids watch tv. No need to find a baby sitter each day so you can go for a run. How about being able to cookrepparttar 144687 dinner while you do a little treadmill walking. It can all be combined.

And treadmills offer a whole world of workouts. Gone arerepparttar 144688 days when you just walked, or ran. Now you can select from any one of a host of different workouts. Simulate all sorts of outdoor conditions such as undulating hills, varying workout speeds and more. You can have an interactive workout by connecting to various programs onrepparttar 144689 internet which track your performance, devise training regimes for you, and more. Or even interact with a personal trainer fromrepparttar 144690 comfort of your own home.

But that isnít unique only to treadmills, there are other indoor exercisers, such as stationary bicycles. And it certainly is true that stationary bicycles are popular too. However treadmills offerrepparttar 144691 best workout for your buck.

But according to a study done byrepparttar 144692 Medical College of Wisconsin andrepparttar 144693 VA Medical Center in Milwaukee a treadmill burns more calories than a similar workout on a stair machine, a stationary bike or a rowing machine overrepparttar 144694 same time. Surprisingly it also burns more calories than a cross country skiing machine. As cross country skiing is often touted asrepparttar 144695 ideal workout this says heaps about a treadmill workout.
