Whilst running on the road, one subjects the knees to the equivalent down force of 3-8 times their own body weight. This factor is one of the primary causes of impact based strain and knee injury. Treadmills take some of the strain away from the user by allowing for a great deal of shock absorption and impact cushioning during use.
Most treadmills come intact with training routines and customisable workouts, allowing the user to get the most out of their training time and many home treadmills now come with the added functionality of being fold away for easy storage.
Installation and finance options are available on most products, allowing you to get on and train as easily as possible.
