The Best Treadmills for Active Homeowners

Posted on 2015-11-20

If you are an active homeowner, a lower grade treadmill just won’t cut it for the long haul. Think about how you would approach this situation with a vehicle. If you engage in extreme types of activity like off-roading and camping out in the woods, you wouldn’t go with a small, compact car. You NEED durability, horsepower and specifications that fit your personality.

Now take a look at the collection of treadmills offered by NordicTrack. There is nothing wrong with the lower end models, because they too can be valuable if you are just looking to walk or do light workouts. But, I’m guessing that since you’re looking to home fitness, you’re likely trying to take your workouts to the next level. Use this data to find options for a treadmill that will stand up to the test of time with your fierce workouts.

Incline Trainers

Do you know that feeling you get when you run up a really steep hill? Your lungs start burning, your legs start aching and you may even feel a tingling sensation radiating down from your arms to your fingertips. A common man would call this agony, but you feel right at home. That’s why you belong striding atop an Incline Trainer.

Unlike baseline treadmills, these treadmills can go all the way up to a whopping 40% incline! Couple that with a speed range of 0 to 12 mph, and you are well on your way to hitting your health goals. You also have the option of reducing the deck to a decline of -3 to -6 degrees to simulate real-life situations out on the streets. This feature is perfect for doing intervals.

Commercial Treadmills

The commercial treadmills have a roosting spot for your tablet so you can easily get caught up on Pinterest, write out your grocery list or catch up on the latest happenings in Fantasy football. This gives you the ability to kill two birds with one stone and be active in two different dimensions of your life at the same time.

As an added bonus, our commercial grade treadmills have a cushion adjustment, which is beneficial for impact reduction. You also have the ability to turn it off completely to capture more of a hard surface feel under your feet, which can prove pivotal if you run races on a competitive or recreational level.

Elite Treadmills

Chances are the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “elite” is the best of the best. With the NordicTrack Elite models, that statement has a lot of validity.

Not only do you get a powerful motor with a weight capacity of 375-plus pounds, but you also have an incline and decline feature, iFit workouts technology and a heart rate monitor to insure you stay in your desired training zone. And, if you are into ultra convenience, the 1-touch control screen will be sure to please.

Any one of these treadmills can easily be integrated into your active lifestyle. Choose the one that best satisfies your space needs and personal preferences, and you won’t go wrong.
