Making use of an electronic treadmill is a good way to stay fit and healthy. Especially for those of us who would like to start an exercise regimen that involves running without leaving the comfort of our homes. However, what differences, advantages or even disadvantages does this type of treadmill offer vis–vis the non-electric treadmill? You can get more information on this by reading the paragraphs below.

Electronic treadmill is a fitness equipment, which is powered by a motor. It is made of a continuous moving belt that one can walk on or even jog on while remaining in a particular position. Recent versions of this treadmill type have consoles that can be used for timing exercise and measuring calories.

On the other hand, non-electric treadmill as the name suggests is another term for manual treadmill, which is also used for exercising. It is similar to its electronic counterpart with major difference being the fact that it does not have an inbuilt motor to power it with user doing this by walking or running.

Another major difference between the two is that the electronic type treadmill usually comes in bigger, more rigid models than the non-electronic or manual type treadmill. The manual type on its part often comes in smaller size models that are usually fold-able. This characteristic feature of the manual treadmill gives it an edge over the electronic type as it is light and then easier to take from one spot to another.

However, with the electronic treadmill you have a machine that is much easier on muscles and joints than the manual treadmill. In fact, on some new versions you have this treadmill equipped with tools for monitoring your heart rate and counting the amount of calories you are burning. Thereby ensuring you keep an eye on how well you are doing in keeping fit.

Now with regard to benefits; the major advantages that the non-electric treadmill possesses which its counterpart falls short of is that it is usually inexpensive, very affordable and also affords user the opportunity to work out more since it is powered by the user. Equally its non-use of motor electric power energy makes it friendly to the environment.

While the major advantage of the electronic type treadmill is that it supports user by encouraging this person to continue working out since the equipment runs by itself. In addition to this, with this machine you do not need to strain yourself to make it start unlike what you have with the manual type.

Nevertheless, if you want to get yourself an electronic treadmill it is important you do at least two things that will ensure you get a suitable one. They are: reading reviews or comments of people who have used this type, which you want to buy and trying a sample of the particular type in the shop in order to test this treadmill against your own expectations.

For me, threadmills are important since I don't have time to go to the gym so I usually do my walking exercises at home.
