Treadmills are a hugely popular choice for home workouts, thanks to their ease of use and low barrier to entry. Having a treadmill in your home can make it much easier to stick to a fitness regime - having ease of access plus no need to head to the gym or run outside in poor weather makes it much easier to commit to exercising consistently. 

Treadmills come in either motorised or non-motorised variants, and we’re pleased to offer both options. Motorised treadmills tend to be a little more expensive and will require a power source to function, whereas non-motorised treadmills can be easily packed up and transported anywhere. 

We’ve got a variety of options suitable for any budget or requirement. Our folding treadmills are a popular choice for home workouts thanks to their easy storage. Easily fold and store away your treadmill when not in use. These are particularly handy if you have a small space.

How to use a treadmill?

Treadmills are a great form of aerobic exercise, and can help you burn calories and improve your overall health. Before using your treadmill, ensure you’re stretching your muscles to avoid any injury. Start with Calf stretches, Hamstring stretches and Quadricep stretches to help prepare your leg muscles for your workout. Next set your treadmill to a slow walk speed and begin walking to help get your heart and muscles pumping. Once you’ve warmed up, increase the intensity and begin your workout by walking or running at your own pace. Finally, when you’ve finished your workout, don’t forget to cool down and slow your speed to a walk. This will help prevent any soreness and allow your muscles to recover. 

 

Which treadmills are best?

Treadmills are a great way to keep active at home. While it might seem that a treadmill simply involves running, there are a variety of low and high intensity workouts that are perfect for pros or beginners. We’ve got a great selection of treadmills that will suit any requirement. If you’re a beginner and looking for something simple to ease your way into working out, we have a great variety of folding treadmills. These are perfect if you’re struggling for space and want to store away your treadmill when not in use. Alternatively, we have more premium motorised treadmills with 12 pre-set modes that will get your legs and heart pumping, perfect for pros and beginners alike. 

 

Why are treadmills good for you?

Using a treadmill regularly is a great way to get into a routine of consistent aerobic exercise, which can have a positive impact on both physical and mental health. Walking or running on a treadmill is a highly effective means of exercise, particularly if one of your fitness goals is to lose weight. 

A top tip if you’re looking to burn fat is to opt for a HIIT style workout - alternate between running on your treadmill for 30 seconds, then walking for 30 seconds, then back to running, and so forth. HIIT allows you to burn more calories in a shorter space of time, meaning you have more time to spend on other pursuits.

 

What treadmill incline should I use?

We recommend setting  your treadmill to an incline of 1-2% if you’d like the most realistic simulation for running outdoors. This mimics the experience of wind resistance and natural elevation that you would experience outside. For incorporating an element of HIIT to your treadmill workout, you can increase the incline to 3-4% at regular intervals before dropping down to 1-2% again. If you’d like to use your treadmill at an incline of 5% or more, your focus should be on power rather than speed, to engage your muscles and drive yourself “uphill”. 

 

What treadmill speed should I run at?

The short answer for beginners is, whatever speed you are most comfortable with. The goal is to build up a consistent habit of using your treadmill, so don’t try to run before you can walk. Varying the speed throughout your workout can help to keep things interesting and build in HIIT elements. For walking we recommend starting out at 3kph for a warm up/cool down, or 5kph for brisk walking to achieve moderate physical activity. For jogging, you should aim for around 6-7kph, and for running 7-8.5kph is most people’s sweet spot. However, it’s really down to personal preference. 

If you’re training with a specific goal in mind then you’ll need to work out what specific speed you need based on the distance you want to run. For example, if you’re aiming to complete a 5k in under half an hour, then you would need to run at around 10kph/6mph.
