Motorised treadmills are a little more expensive than their little brother the manual treadmills, but they are worth every penny. You should think of your motorised treadmill as a long term investment. You should buy the best motorized treadmill you can afford because you are going to use it for a long period of time and you will reap fabulous results.

If you cannot afford to buy a motorized treadmill you can always join a gym and use the motorised treadmills found there. Any gym that respects its customers will have a couple of high quality motorised treadmills.

The advantage of motorized treadmills is that they don’t force you strain your body to start them. They have a motor that puts the tread belt in motion. You just set the pace with the help of the treadmills computer and it does the rest. It will slowly accelerate until it reaches the desired speed and it will maintain it for as long as you want.


What truly separates motorised treadmills form manual treadmills is the possibility to use and even create different workout scenarios. You have intense workout programs or you can choose more leisurely workout program. Depending of your goals you can pick form a wide selection. Motorised treadmills make it possible for you to jog for 10 minutes at a medium pace, run for 2-3 minutes, then walk for 1 minute, then go jogging again and so on…

Another advantage of motorised treadmills is the fact that they have a heart meter which will show you your heart rate at all times. That way it is far easier for you to keep your heart rate between 120 and 160 beats per minute, the optimum heart rate for the best workout results. Depending on your budget and brand of motorized treadmill that you buy it can have even more functions and gizmos included in it.

The main disadvantage of equipping your home gym with a motorized treadmill is the fact that they occupy a lot of space and they are usually pretty heavy making moving them frequently not an option. Usually where you put them they will remain for a long period of time. I have mine placed in front of the TV. Every time I want to watch any TV program I exercise a little bit.

What I love the most about my motorized treadmill is the fact that I don’t have to leave the comfort of my home to exercise. It is there, and after I finish jogging on it I can go on with the other house chores or just chill out surfing the web. It is a comfortable solution for working out frequently in your home. I love it.

If you cannot afford a motorised treadmill you can always buy a manual treadmill. If you don’t have the space or you don’t want to work out in your home you can always start jogging or join a gym. If you don’t like jogging pick another exercise routine you can do frequently. Just start working out if you want to ever get in shape.
