Home Exercise home treadmill buying guide

20070108 by Tony Rix

When you are looking for a treadmill for your home, you want to get one that is going to work well for you. When you buy this treadmill, you know you are getting something that will work for life.When people complain about the treadmill being boring, it is probably because they do the same workout over and over.exercise treadmillIt is perfectly designed for all kind of body weight and can sustain more heavy duty exercises without any problems. Here are two great treadmill workouts you can use if you are pressed for time. It does not move until you push it with your feet by walking or running. manual treadmillFortunately, all that has changed. The best home treadmill is not necessarily the treadmill with all the bells and whistles but the one that suits your needs and personal situation the best. They all tend to be very highly rated in most home treadmill reviews. Before you make a treadmill purchase, there are some things that should be taken into consideration.Treadmills, like all other at home fitness machines, have come a long way. There are a lot of choices out there and it can be difficult to filter through all of them and choose one.

Honda, in their unending quest to weaken the human population to the point where we can't even run when they release the robots, has developed the U3-X, a personal mobility device that will allow our legs to atrophy even quicker. Nice try, Honda, but I'm writing this post from the treadmill! Kidding, I haven't gotten out of bed yet and I've already begun drinking.

While it looks like a high-tech unicycle, the U3-X and the technology that underlies it could have far reaching implications on the way we - and robots - get around in the 21st Century. It uses the world's first omni-directional driving wheel system (Honda Omni Traction Drive System) to achieve smooth movement in any direction along with the company's proprietary balance-control system evolved from research into human walking dynamics for ASIMO the humanoid robot.

There's a couple videos after the jump if you want to see the U3-X in action, but if you came here hoping to see me in action I'm afraid you're gonna be disappointed. However I will be dancing in just my boxers tonight with the bedroom blinds open. Standing room only, parking in the bus-lane at your own risk, no flash photography.

Hit the jump for two videos, a short one I watched and a long one I didn't.

Thanks to David, Bongo and Dick, who don't need U3-X's to know how to roll. You just shake the dice and drop them, amirite?

CyberWalk Virtual Reality Treadmill: This Is the Holodeck

The problem with walking through a virtual reality world is that you're subject to the physical world's spatial limitations. That's why the Enterprise's holodeck always gave me headaches. But I get it now: they had a CyberWalk.

CyberWalk is an omni-directional platform; essentially, a giant treadmill that adjusts its speed and direction to allow for unlimited exploration of a virtual space. It's the love child of a consortium of German, Italian, and Swiss labs that's able to detect when and how quickly a user is changing direction:

By precisely monitoring the position of the user on the platform using a Vicon motion-capture system, the controller computes estimates for the two variables and tries to adjust the speeds of the linear belts to keep the user close to the center — all without abrupt accelerations.

Sure, we still need to figure out how to make this work with multiple people and create hyper-realistic virtual reality and maybe a lovable pale android to take along for the ride, but trust me: we'll be matching wits with Moriarty before you know it. [IEEE Spectrum]

Well these should not be a problem now. All treadmills have programs for all individuals no matter what there fitness goals are. That treadmill we're talking about is the Sole F80 motorized treadmill.You can get a full 15% incline, allowing you to train well no matter what the weather is like outside. To also further the challenge this treadmill has a full 15% incline for those that need a more professional workout.treadmill equipmentThis treadmill priced a little high than other brands has some additional features which support for the high price. When looking for a higher end 'commercial grade' treadmill for your home gym, consider a 'lighter' version of a commercial treadmill model or a home fitness equipment brand that is known for higher end machines. This allows for a larger user weight, and will come with a lifetime warranty against cracks or breakage.As more and more people developed the habit of doing regular exercise, the popularity of commercial treadmills has also increased.
