For people who are trying to lose weight, treadmills are definitely the equipment of choice, and they are also one of the most popular pieces of equipment for promoting good cardio-vascular health too. It doesn't matter whether you buy an up-market electrical model, or a manually powered model, treadmills are the way to go if you want to achieve weight loss the healthy way -

Although it is the electrically powered treadmills that are usually the models of choice in a gym or health club, many people prefer the option, and the lower cost, of a self propelled model in their homes. One of the reasons for this is that they offer a gentler alternative to the, sometimes, harsher option of walking or jogging in bad weather, outdoors. Brrrr!

In today's frenetically busy world it's sometimes very difficult to find time to join a formal gym, or other kind of health or physical exercise club. So, thousands of busy people have started to use treadmills either, in the office, or in the privacy of their own home.

So, let's look at the electric treadmill.
