Get a great workout at home with the various treadmills from Kmart
Whether you're a serious runner training for a marathon or just a beginner who's starting to get in shape, a treadmill is a classic choice to help you achieve your goal. Jogging gives you a great cardiovascular workout while helping tone your calves, thighs, hamstrings and butt; and with a treadmill you have the freedom to go running anytime, regardless of the weather. When choosing a treadmill, some things you will want to keep in mind are the size of the running surface, the degree of incline and what electronic features you need.
Treadmills come in a variety of sizes. The most important size to consider is that of the running surface; this is the moving surface that you actually run on. If you're tall with long legs, you might need a longer running surface to accommodate your strides, while a wider running surface will give you a more comfortable experience. Bigger isn't necessarily always better, though; a large treadmill will take up more floor space and be more difficult to store. One nice feature of some treadmills, which sets them apart from other cardio machines like exercise cycles, is that they can fold for easy storage.
If you use iFit to keep track of your calories and workouts, or if you want to start using it, get one of the iFit-compatible treadmills. iFit is a fitness program that use Google Maps to base your workout on any area in the world; so if you want to go for a run in Paris, for example, the iFit will automatically adjust the incline to match the landscape of Paris while showing your virtual progress on the map. You can also purchase iFit workout cards for treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines.
There are a lot of features to think about when considering a treadmill. A built-in fan might sound like a small feature, but it can make a big difference in how comfortable you feel during your workouts. Some treadmills are compatible with MP3 players, allowing you to listen to your favorite playlists while you jog. Don't forget basics like weight capacity and maximum incline. Many treadmills incline up to 12 percent, but you can find models that incline up to 18 percent or higher if you want a more intense climb like an incline trainers.
