Buying A Refurbished Treadmill – As New Quality For Bargain Prices!
Buying a refurbished treadmill is fast becoming an increasingly popular choice. If you are a regular runner, you will know how great running is to lose weight, tone up and improve your health. However, some people can feel very self conscious running outside, and can feel very vulnerable running when it’s dark.
It isn’t pleasant to run when it’s pouring with rain either, so a good way of being able to run whenever you like is to buy your own treadmill for a weather proof workout. However, treadmills can be very expensive pieces of equipment, especially if you want a quality machine. Although you can purchase treadmills for just a few hundred dollars, they are unlikely to be strong enough or comfortable enough to withstand sustained use.
One option is to purchase a used or second hand treadmill. These are basically machines that somebody else has used and no longer wants. Although you could pick up a good deal this way, buying second hand is always risky as you have very little comeback if a major part fails the day after you bought it.
Many people are now turning towards purchasing a refurbished treadmill. This can be a way to purchase a quality machine at a much lower price than buying new. So what exactly is a refurbished treadmill?
It is one that has been disassembled and rebuilt, tested for faults and any worn parts replaced. Quite often the treadmill has been sandblasted and repainted; in fact it should resemble a brand new machine. These machines have been previously owned and used, either by a gym or an individual, and refurbished either by the original manufacturers or a private company.
Machines refurbished by a private company tend to be cheaper, which is useful if you are on a tighter budget. If you are able to afford it, however, purchasing a refurbished treadmill from the original manufacturer can give greater peace of mind as they are thoroughly checked for possible faults before being resold.
The main thing to watch for when choosing a refurbished treadmill is the length of warranty which comes with it. You will need to know that you have comeback in case of faults or breakdown, and the longer the warranty the more confidence you will have in the reliability and durability of your machine.
Always try out several machines so that you can choose one which feels comfortable for you. Make sure it will be durable enough for your needs, especially if you intend to use it a lot at a higher intensity. You may want to look for features such as an inclination option to simulate running uphill, heart rate monitor and programmed workout.
