How To Narrow Down Your Search For The Perfect Treadmill
If you are browsing Amazon or your local sports stores intent on buying the perfect treadmill you can soon get a sore head. There are just so many choices available it could make your head spin. One of the first things you need to do is start shopping by budget. Forget about all the fancy glitzy gizmos on offer and first narrow down your wish list according to budget.
First look at this- it will help you prime your mind to make a good decision.
Next up you need to start reading reviews. If you have less than a $1000 to spend you can start looking at places like this: Treadmill Reviewers guide to choosing a Weslo treadmill. You should also browse their site and start looking at the reviews by budget sections. Next up you should compare their analysis against the other review sites in the top 10 of Google.
Once this is done hop on over to Amazon. See what their customers have to say about the treadmills that have made it onto your list. Be wary of buying new treadmills that have just made it onto the market. They will not be tried and tested and they won’t have enough reviews out to determine if there are any niggling problems that have arisen just yet.
If you see a product that has over a 100 reviews you can garner a good opinion from the ratings and the reviews on the website. Some products have hundreds and even thousands of reviews so it proves that the product is quite popular. You can also determine from the reviews if the model of treadmill has any particular problems or idiosyncrasies that would be worth knowing about.
For example an extremely tall user of the treadmill may have noticed that if you have a low ceiling the treadmill deck is quite high so you can end up cracking your neck against the ceiling. The manufacture won’t have listed this because they have no way of knowing you have a lowered ceiling in your house or you are over 6ft 5.
Discovering The Faults In Advance
Little gems of information like this can sway you in favor of one treadmill over another. It is best to know these things before placing the order button as a treadmill is hard to set up and repack if it has to go back. Plus you may not find out about a particular facet until a few months down the line. By then the treadmill could be out of warranty.
On another level some faults may be prone to appearing after 12 months. If the treadmill is cheap it most likely has a 3-12 months warranty. You are looking at repair bills, and there is a lot of waiting time and cost when it comes to repairs of this type. It may cost half of the original price and you will be asking yourself why you bought this particular model if that happens.
