Progressive Advancements In The Portable Treadmill

By Kevin Urban

The portable treadmill has made home fitness easier than ever. Modern designs can be conveniently stored in a closet or other storage area after the user workout. Purchasing a portable model offers home users the benefits of a club workout without having to deal with a piece of fitness equipment standing center stage in their homes.

Increased awareness of the importance of being fit and healthy has lead to literal strides in the progressive advancement of the portable treadmill design. Leading manufacturers have invested serious time and effort into researching and developing designs that are streamlined and extremely user-focused.

These combined efforts have resulted in the best treadmills that are not only practical for home and/or apartment use, but which also deliver premium performance. Investing in a portable machine does not mean that the user has to sacrifice quality in performance or quality in superior workout features.

Cutting-edge portable designs have made these treadmills an increasingly popular and practical choice in home workout solutions. It delivers the advantages of a machine in an expensive fitness club or gym, without the disadvantages that come with club and gym memberships.

People who invest in a portable model for use in their homes can enjoy a considerable savings over the price of a club and/or gym membership. They also enjoy the convenience of scheduling their regular fitness routines to accommodate their own individual daily circumstances. There is no more rushing through traffic to reach your workout location only to have to wait to be able to use a particular machine.

For consumer consideration, there are two different choices available in a portable design for home use. These specific designs include treadmills that incorporate a manual folding mechanism and machines that incorporate an automatically operational folding mechanism.

The manual folding design in a portable model typically functions the same in all treadmills marketed by leading manufacturers. For example, Precor markets its patented SpaceSaver® design. Its portable designs can be stored easily by raising the spring-loaded deck, securing the lock in place, and rolling it into a closet on small built-in wheels.

The portable treadmill that features an automatically operating folding design is a bit more expensive than those that fold manually. Many leading manufacturers offer designs with automatically operating folding designs, which incorporate hydraulic systems.
