Treadmill Horsepower and Motor:

Your weight and the intensity of workout determine the treadmill’s motor and horsepower that you should choose. Thus, the higher your workout intensity, the higher the horsepower required.

For most homeowners, a treadmill within the range of 1.5 - 3 is more than enough and makes for a good long-term investment.

Minimum Specifications for Your Treadmill

The secret to buying a great treadmill lies in attention to details. Even as your height and your workout regimen will determine the right treadmill size for you, here are a few tips
