After analyzing some fundamental aspects of the treadmill and before buying it, you need to ask yourself a few questions:
- How many people will use the carpet?
- Will a man use it?
- The heaviest and tallest person?
- How many times does the most trained person train and how?
- Do you have space?
- The spending budget?
Let’s give some examples:
If you’re a girl or woman who wants a treadmill that’s right for you, you should go for a treadmill that has a motor from 2 CHP upwards, and has a platform of at least 40 cm.
We advise an engine with a platform of at least 48 cm in width for a length of 140 cm and up in the case of a person who is between 85 and 100 kilograms, 2.85 meters high.
As the user’s weight and height increase, a wider running platform is required, that is, the running surface is directly proportional to the user’s weight and height. It’s important to see how many people will use the tool in order to choose a good engine.
If we are going to use the treadmill for walking, we want to be sure that it isn’t a high powered motor, so we prefer to avoid treadmills that have a motor under 2.5 kilowatts.

This means that you will need to find a place where you can run without bothering anyone.
We also advise that you don’t look at the price of the product before buying it, because even though there are some cheap treadmills on the market, they will have a lot of issues, and this can cost you a lot of money in the long term.
If we talk about the price, it’s important to remember that a treadmill with an engine of less than
2.5 kilowatts costs more than one with a motor of 2 CHP or more. However, it’s possible to find treadmills with motors up to
