5 advantages of owning a treadmill

Having a treadmill at home is a great way to exercise easily without travelling around. But how do you choose your home fitness equipment and what are the advantages of a treadmill compared to indoor or outdoor running? With NordicTrack’s premium-quality equipment, you can start exercising without any restrictions and travel around the world from the comfort of your own home!

Why train on a treadmill at home?


Are you planning to start home training? Here are 5 good reasons to use a treadmill at home:

  • Compared to running outdoors, running on a treadmill belt causes less impact on the joints, thanks to the fine adjustment of the cushioning and an even surface.
  • Exercising at home is a flexible solution: Run when you want, without weather restrictions or losing valuable time travelling to the gym.
  • The treadmill’s tracking tools monitor various data. For example, you can find out how many calories you’ve burned or how far you’ve run and keep an eye on your progress.
  • Your workouts are more effective: You can set the speed or incline as you wish and enjoy targeted exercises with running programmes that continuously adjust the belt settings.
  • The treadmill’s features are ideal when preparing for a race: MHR (maximum heart rate), aerobic or anaerobic threshold, step amplitude, progression rate; everything is under your control!

Choosing the right treadmill


When choosing your treadmill, there are a number of factors to take into account:

  • What will you use it for?
  • For occasional use, the NordicTrack S-Series treadmills offer excellent value for money.
  • For daily training, opt for the comfort of a Commercial or Incline Trainer treadmill.
  • What are your sporting goals?
  • To lose weight, an Incline Trainer treadmill, with its adjustable inclination or declination levels ranging from -6% to 40%, will help you burn the most calories.
  • Planning a marathon? An Incline Trainer will be perfect for this purpose: Once you’ve configured your route, the incline adjusts to the running session for an amazing experience.
  • For getting back in shape, the S and T Series treadmills combine quality and efficiency, while the Commercial Series treadmills offer the best in comfort for even more fun.
  • How much space do you have?
  • The S and T Series treadmills are the most compact machines, but the Commercial Series treadmills feature the SpaceSaver® Design with EasyLift™ assistance that allows you to fold them up.
  • The Commercial and Incline Trainer belts offer generous running surfaces and a large screen.
