What are the advantages of training on a treadmill?
Without regular exercise, the cardiovascular system weakens and stress is less easily dealt with. Exercising in your living room with your own treadmill increases your well-being, strengthens your muscles, makes your heart more efficient and lets excess pounds melt away. Depending on the training method you choose, calorie consumption can average up to 900 kcal per hour. So run for your life and don't wait for tomorrow.
Which muscles are trained when running on the fitness treadmill?
To put it simply, your entire musculature works from head to toe during running training. On the one hand, you need a well-functioning cardiovascular system and, on the other hand, a certain degree of balance, as you are always standing on one leg for a short time when running. Your muscles must therefore constantly coordinate and stabilise so that your entire body remains stable at any running speed. You actively strengthen the entire musculature of your lower body. Depending on the speed and incline, your circulation and metabolism are also specifically trained.
- Heart: Regular treadmill training strengthens the heart muscle and thus also strengthens the cardiovascular system.
- Thighs: By exercising on the treadmill you shape and strengthen the 4-headed thigh extensor.
- Buttocks: Your entire gluteal muscle group with its various parts is optimally trained during the running workout.
- Back muscles: Because of your upright posture, your back and torso have to do stabilising work. If you run uphill, your back muscles will be worked even more intensively.
- Calves: Movement on the treadmill results in defined and strong calf muscles.
Buy an ergometer, cross trainer or treadmill: Which machine is better?
Treadmills,and can all help you improve your endurance. However, there are big differences in terms of body position, effort, selection options and training effects. The decision to buy a new piece of fitness equipment at home should therefore depend on your individual fitness goals:
Getting started with endurance training
For beginners and to shed pounds or improve your general fitness, a is a great choice. Simply start pedalling and your heart rate will increase and with it your calorie consumption.
Increase your performance level
The is the ideal piece of home equipment to increase your performance level. The whole-body movement has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system, you shape your legs and strengthen your upper body at the same time. Especially if you have joint or muscle problems in your back or knees, a crosstrainer is the perfect training device because of the low load.
If you want to burn calories, noticeably improve your endurance or optimise your running style, we recommend buying a treadmill. Compared to other endurance machines, treadmills require you to move your entire body weight over and over again, so you automatically burn a lot of calories.
Pulse-controlled training: what is the optimal training pulse for a treadmill?
Pulse-controlled training programmes are predestined for health-oriented endurance training. Your heart rate is measured with the help of aor pulse belt or integrated hand pulse sensors. Depending on the model, the professional treadmill adjusts the speed and incline according to the current target pulse. Your heart rate is influenced by your fitness level and training intensity as well as your age, gender and physical disposition.
Depending on your athletic ambition and training goal, you should train in different heart rate ranges. If you want to boost your fat metabolism and burn calories, training at 60-70% of HRmax is recommended. Intensive endurance training is achieved by training at over 80% of maximum heart rate. This is always referred to as a percentage of the maximum heart rate. The recommended maximum heart rate can vary from person to person. Cardio exercise is not only healthy, but also brings you faster to more success.
Buying advice: which treadmill for home?
The selection of different treadmill models is huge. Basically, professional treadmills are extremely durable and robust. Even with frequent use, they score points with an extremely long service life. Our professional treadmills convince with a wide range of settings, first-class workmanship and numerous programmes.
Key technical data: Engine, damping system, accessories
The engine power is usually stated in horsepower. Pay attention to the maximum speed and maximum load as well as the declared continuous power. If you want to practice sprints and frequently train your endurance, then a professional treadmill for advanced users with a strong motor of at least 3 hp continuous power makes sense. Our professional treadmills challenge you at peak speeds of up to 22 km/h and 8.5 hp maximum power. This fast speed is comparable to cycling. At the same time, these powerful engines ensure a pleasantly smooth and comfortable ride.
Easy on the joints and ergonomic
Especially frequent runners benefit from the unique damping system of our professional treadmills. Rubber layers that are easy on the joints absorb shocks and give you the feeling of running on a forest floor. The super-soft surface protects and relieves your joints even during regular jogging sessions.
Set the speed of the treadmill
Ambitious runners with intensive and long training sessions have higher demands on their training equipment. The incline should adjust automatically and a sufficiently large motor power for speed training is indispensable. If you integrate interval runs with high-intensity sprints into your training plan, choose a treadmill with at least 2 hp continuous power. Important: The more finely the speed can be adjusted, the greater the treadmill's range of use. For a very fine adjustment of the speed, 0.1 km/h steps are suitable. Top models like the treadmillaccelerate up to 22 km/h. Enough for sweaty interval training with intermediate sprints.
Size of the running surface
Convince yourself of more comfort and safety with the extra large running surfaces of our professional treadmills. For fast and long strides, a longer treadmill is advantageous, the width gives you more space when running. Ideally, the treadmill should be at least 130 cm long and 45 cm wide. Sufficient space is essential for proper technique training. Make sure that the dimensions fit well into your training room. The foldable, compact and easily stowable equipment offers ambitious hobby athletes excellent training possibilities.
Quality meets comfort
Professional treadmills have multi-media entertainment such as Bluetooth, app connection (e.g. Kinomap) and track videos.
Steep uphill to the finish
Some treadmills have an integrated incline motor. Depending on the model, this electromechanically adjusts the incline of the running surface by up to 15 %.

We especially recommend the treadmill , which you can park in a vertical or horizontal position with the innovative extra "Fold Button" on the console and the foot pedal without screwing. This way, the treadmill can be stored in a space-saving way.
What else is important about professional treadmills?
Depending on your specific needs, there are other criteria that an advanced treadmill should fulfil. If you have limited space within your own four walls, then a foldable treadmill is the right choice for you. In addition, high-quality treadmills are characterised by their particularly quiet and smooth running.

In order to be able to train safely and with different running techniques, a sufficiently large running surface is also recommended. A professional treadmill requires less maintenance than cheaper models. Maximum stability and comfort are absolutely paramount here!
Maintenance and care
To enjoy your treadmill for a long time, regular care and maintenance is advisable. Permanent exposure to sunlight and moisture will damage the material. Therefore, the location of the treadmill should be dry and somewhat protected from the sun. To protect the floor and prevent noise from your neighbours, we recommend the use of a. Also make sure that the treadmill is placed at a distance from the wall. This way you can reduce the noise level even more.

Accessories and safety tips.
Most treadmills have drink holders to keep you hydrated. The safety clip ensures that the training device stops immediately if you trip or accidentally move too far back to the end of the running surface.
