Tips on Buying a
you buy a treadmill you are about to spend a considerable amount of money. That
is of course, if you are going to buy a quality treadmill. Treadmills under $800
dollars are not built for endurance and performance. You will probably get an
inferior workout and your machine will potentially breakdown after minimum use.
what do you look for when you buy a treadmill, and should you buy your treadmill
from a retail dealer or on the Internet?
You Buy a Treadmill From a Retail Store
advantage when you buy a treadmill from a store is obvious, you get to try it
out. You can try out all of the features, and determine which one best serves
your needs. But this comes with a price. You are paying for two costly expenses.
First, you have to pay for the retail overhead costs. Most retail fitness equipment
stores are in prime locations. This cost of leasing the building adds significantly
to the price of the treadmill.
when you buy a treadmill you pay for the commission to the salesperson. And since
he is on commission you can't always be certain he is going to provide you with
objective information. In fact, you can assume he won't. His motive is making
the most money off of you.
the retail costs and the salesperson's commissions can add up to 15% - 20% to
the cost of your treadmill. Ouch!
a Treadmill Online
you buy a treadmill online you can save considerable money, but you have to be
an educated buyer. These are considerations when you buy a treadmill online:
to makes sure the treadmill is a name brand, backed buy independent ratings and
reviews. Also, check for customer testimonials, if available.
sure when you buy a treadmill, it is built with quality components. Treadmills
are like computers, most manufacturers use similar parts. Make certain the parts
are reputable and that the overall construction meets or exceeds the standards
required for your needs.
warranty says a lot about the quality of a treadmill. Companies are not going
to offer an exceptional warranty if the machine tends to breakdown in a short
period of time. Warranties are a consistent factor in the quality of a treadmill.
If the warranty covers a reasonable period of time then it makes sense that the
treadmill is built to last. Also, only buy a treadmill that comes with a minimum
one year in home repair warranty. If you are considering a budget model consider
buying an extended warranty.
you buy a treadmill do not get caught up by the hype of salesperson. Do your research.
Compare prices, features and warranties. Most important is to check our treadmill
reviews and ratings. That will give you a good indication on what to buy whether
online or off.
