then what are you waiting for? Let’s walk through the content that helps to select the perfect treadmill for your need.
What is a treadmill?
The treadmill is a device that is used for running or jogging at a static place. It is used for cardio exercises at home or fitness centers. This gives convenience for working professionals and business people who wants to do exercises without leaving their home.
Using treadmills every day will increase the strength and stamina of people other than weight loss. By using the treadmill for 30 minutes a day will promote your body’s health.
Types of treadmills available in the market:
There are two types of treadmill variants are available in the fitness industry.
- Manual treadmill
- Automatic or motorized treadmill
The purpose of both the treadmills are the same, but there are some differences in their functionalities, features, etc.,
What is a Manual treadmill?
Manual treadmill runs only if the runner or walker on the treadmill applies force against the belt of the treadmill in order to slide the curve belt over the sliding plate.
You have to put more effort in order to slide the belt. Some studies mentioned that an average burns 30% more calories on the manual treadmill than an automatic.
But there are some cons with a manual treadmill which I will discuss at the end of this article.
What is an Automatic or motorized treadmill?
In a motorized treadmill, the motor keeps the belt in motion. You have to just move your leg over the belt in relative motion. Here the speed and power of the motor matter a lot.
If you want to run fast or burn more calories, you can increase the speed of the motor. Another benefit of the motorized treadmill is you can burn calories as per your goal.
A motorized treadmill helps you to do High Intense jogging.
