Fitness And Wellness Freebie Friday

The day after Christmas is the time to buy treadmills, stationary bikes and ellipticals. All of these big ticket items will be on sale. 

If you are looking for a treadmill, make sure you buy one with a motor that has at least 1.5 horsepower and anything over that is preferred.  Your weight is also an important factor when buying a treadmill.  A lot of people don't know they have weight limits.  If you weigh over 250 pounds or 113 kilos, make sure your treadmill will sustain your weight.  Many sporting good store treadmills have weight limits only up to 250 pounds.

Check the stability of the treadmill you are purchasing by walking on it on an incline and even do a jog. If it is unstable, try a different model.

Cheap is not always a good thing when purchasing large cardio or strength training exercise equipment. I bought my Precor treadmill 10 years ago on the day after Christmas.  It cost me $1850 but it has never broken down or given me any trouble.  

This week you can find a lot of sales on fitness items because this is the time people start making  New Year's resolutions.  Shop around and let's make 2015 the year we make permanent lifestyle changes.

  1. I was so leery of buying an inferior mill. Thankfully mine's been going strong (knock wood) for 14 years and counting....
