I get asked a lot about the quietness of electric treadmills and magnetic treadmills. The sound is created by the movement of the foot on the belt, which is why electric treadmills are quiet.
The magnetic treadmills are silent as you walk and don’t have to use the magnetic mat.
There are two ways to reduce the noise when running on the treadmill, one is to buy a heavy treadmill and the other is to buy a soundproofing mat, which are made with a fairly hard “tarry” mixture.
You will soon get a report about the noise levels generated by some treadmills. If you train in the early morning before work, the treadmill is the best for you.
The reason is that it is quiet and easy to run at a slow pace. If you do not exercise at home, you will be more interested in the elliptical than the treadmill because it is more comfortable to use and doesn’t need a separate stand or mat.
There are two types of elliptical trainers, the recumbent and the upright. The recumbent has the user lying down with his feet on the pedals, while the upright has the user standing up. They are both great for people who want to lose weight and don’t want to strain their back.
Most manufacturers offer a variety of price ranges, from $500 to over $1000. This is because some of the features and accessories can be expensive.
