Frequently Asked Questions About Treadmills
What are the benefits of using a treadmill?
Training on a treadmill provides a low-impact and convenient way to reach your fitness goals. Treadmills help users prepare for a variety of sports and activities by helping maintain endurance, support cardiovascular health and burn calories.
How much does it cost to buy a treadmill?
Treadmill prices can range from $149.99 to over $3,000. Manual treadmills are much more affordable, though they lack the features and capabilities of motorized treadmills. Commercial and commercial-quality treadmills are more expensive. Browsing customer reviews of treadmills can help you decide which treadmill is right for you.

What is a manual treadmill?
Manual treadmills are designed without motors and are powered by the user. This means that you have to get the treadmill belt started with your own movement. Dual-weighted flywheels offer consistent resistance while walking, jogging or running.
A manual treadmill is a more affordable alternative to a motorized treadmill. Plus, they are more energy efficient since they require no electricity. Many people prefer manual treadmills because there’s no electric outlet needed and no motor to maintain.
Many manual treadmills are adjustable and come with electronic monitors that display workout time, speed, distance and calories burned.
Can I run on a manual treadmill?
Yes. You can walk, jog or run on a manual treadmill. However, some manual treadmills do not allow every user to reach a full sprint or their fastest speeds. Ultimately, manual treadmills may be best for walking or a light jog.
What is a magnetic treadmill?
A magnetic treadmill is non-motorized and features adjustable magnetic resistance and dual-weighted flywheels. Motorless treadmills require the user to start the belt’s initial movement.
Magnetic treadmills offer a more cost-effective way to work out at home compared to motorized treadmills. Magnetic treadmills do not require electricity, making them a great option for many users.
How do I do interval training (or HIIT) on a treadmill?
Treadmills can be a great way to help you reach your high-intensity interval training (HIIT) goals. Since HIIT is based on short, intense bursts of energy that are followed by short recovery periods, a motorized treadmill’s adjustable settings and built-in features are perfect for this kind of workout.
There are several different ways to do interval training on a treadmill. Many treadmills come with preset interval training programs that you can further customize for your needs by choosing your max speed and max incline. Whether you’re using a preset program or have another training plan in mind, the idea is to switch between intense intervals, which can consist of faster speeds and increased inclines, and recovery intervals, which often bring you to a comfortable walk or jog on a reduced incline.
Make sure you consult with your doctor before starting any new exercise regimen. Professional physical trainers can also help you make decisions when it comes to finding the treadmill workout that’s right for you.
What does the incline on a treadmill do?
A treadmill’s incline raises the running bed for increased resistance. An increased incline replicates walking, jogging or running uphill. Incline training can help intensify your workout, burn more calories and increase muscle tone.
Motorized treadmills automatically adjust at the touch of a button or via a preset program, so you can change the incline while walking or running. When using a manual treadmill with adjustable incline levels, you have to adjust the incline yourself. This means you have to change the incline before getting onto the treadmill or take a break from your workout to adjust it.
Motorized treadmills can offer inclines up to 15%, while manual treadmills only offer one to four different incline levels.
