Treadmill is one of the sports equipment that helps many people and families to keep doing the sport no matter the season, because the tool is placed in the room, such as fitness centers or homes. For someone who never used at all, or only ever used occasionally (not regularly), the difference when using it may not be too pronounced. but for those who are accustomed to using a treadmill, it may be more aware of differences in material treadmill, treadmill frame that is more convenient to use, and other things that can only be known by periodic attention.
Materials on the treadmill frame is generally made from two types of materials that each have advantages and disadvantages. The two materials are: aluminum and steel. When doing research to compare the two, there are two things to note, namely: the strength that measure how much load can be supported and stiffness which measures how much bend material with a certain amount of load.
Aluminum is the material that is not easy or even does not have rust, while steel is more possible for it. However, in its strength, steel is lead more than aluminum. This caused a lot of people prefer the steel frames are coated with the right mix of ingredients (one of which is aluminum) so that it becomes a treadmill strong and more resistant to rust.
Frame construction is generally made using welding or bolting. Again, this is not partial to which one is better material for welded. Whenever possible, avoid construction of the frame that uses rough welds or welds are generally too low because it’s easier that such porous and corroded. Or, to avoid this problem, since the beginning chooses a treadmill that has a lifetime warranty, so you are not burdened with the ownership.
Despite not having a clear conclusion treadmill frame material, rust and welding, to the warranty on Which was the best or should have, but there are two things that can be considered to obtain a solution when choosing a treadmill frame, namely:
– Maximum weight treadmill users. This is important, given that treadmill users not just those who maintain fitness, but also for those who want to lose weight. So, looking for a treadmill that is able to bear weights at least 350 pounds or even more is the right decision.
– Treadmill frame warranty. Back to the frame of an unknown quality consumer, this would be a guarantee of comfort and secure the consumer. The longer the guarantee is given, and then it is usually treadmill quality is also better. That is, the best quality treadmill is a treadmill that has a lifetime warranty.
Although currently there is a portable folding treadmill, but the choice of the strength and function better on a treadmill is generally contained in the gym. But, it depends on several things you should be sure before buying a treadmill, which is: how often you use it, user weight, and intensity of use (walking or running). If you use it more often, then choose a treadmill with the right strength. And vice versa.
