Lawnmowers have manual ones and motorized ones, so do treadmills. But the different is that from a motorized treadmill , you can get better workout which can help you achieve your fitness goals.
Manual Treadmills – Getting Going
As you know, what makes the belt of a manual treadmill move is the action of your feet against the deck. The good point of this is that you provide all of the motive power as well as exercise your lower body. But there are some disadvantages you may need to consider. First, you may find it difficult to get the belt moving initially and sometimes that straining against the belt may stress your joints. Second, to make it easy enough for the belt to move, you may have to significantly raise the incline of your manual treadmill. Moreover, once the belt is moving, you will soon find yourself being stuck with one incline level during each workout, because if you want to change the incline while exercising, you have to stop and get off.
Motorized Treadmill Advantages
The story is different when it comes to motorized treadmill because the belt is moved by the motor, so you don’t have to take effort to start it. With many motorized treadmills, you will find it’s convenient to adjust the speed and incline while you are still exercising. But if yours does not support that, after getting off to adjust the incline manually, all you have to do is just turn on the treadmill to start the belt again, not to strain to start it.
Manual Treadmills – Speed. Motorized Treadmill – Speed and Workouts
When you are on a manual treadmill, you go only as fast as you push yourself. The speed is up to your speed. But with a motorized treadmill, the speed is adjustable. Many motorized treadmills have workout programs. They allow you to adjust the speed. They give you a varied workout so that you are pushed to go faster. We can’t deny that the constantly moving belt of a motorized treadmill is a good motivation for us to keep up and achieve our goal.
Usually, a manual treadmill is just around $100-$200. Home motorized treadmills are more expensive, from $750 to $5,000. But when it comes to treadmills, the more you pay, the better you get. So, try to invest cleverly because most motorized treadmills which are under $1,000 usually have weak motors and unsolid constructions. They may also have fewer options for adjusting the incline or pre-set workouts.
We may want to buy a manual treadmill instead of a motorized one because it is cheaper, but there are a lot of huge discounts out there for a good used motorized treadmill. You can find some practically new best quality treadmills sold as used when people sell their almost-unused treadmills as the New Year’s Resolutions wear off.
