Gold’s Gym is one of the popular brands to hit the market. The brand is popular because people would have heard of or visited Gold’s Gym which is located all over. The treadmill has eight in built work out programs to help the amateur users in burning calories. It is very simple to use and is absolutely noiseless even though cost wise it slightly on the higher side.
The console has buttons which can help users adjust the angle of inclination in order to subject themselves for more strenuous workouts. One can also customize them as per his or her requirements. It has been found that working out on a treadmill regularly eliminates the risk of cardio vascular diseases. The treadmill makers have provided a lifetime warranty on the product and 25 years for the motor running the treadmill. A major drawback is that the parts used are made of plastic,quite cheap and do not offer value for money.
The Weslo treadmill is easier to install,light in weight and is cheaper on the pocket. It has six built in work out plans and a thumb based heart rate detector which eliminates the need to hold handles as in the case of Gold’s Gym while performing workouts. It has an LCD display screen that provides accurate details about the speed,distance,time and the calories burnt.
However the Weslo treadmill has imposed a weight limit of 250 pounds making it a difficult choice for people who are heavy.The warranty period is just 90 days which is certainly a drawback.
