Comment Choisir un Tapis Roulant

A treadmill is a great investment in your home and health. Whether you are training, or want to walk, jog, or run, there’s a perfect model to suit all of your needs. 

Dimension

55-inch belt: Standard treadmill belts are 55 inches. These models work very well for people of average height to want to run, jog, or walk. 

50-inch belt: If you are only going to be walking on your treadmill, you can purchase a more compact model, such as a 50-inch belt, since your stride will be shorter. 

60-inch belt: If you are taller than average or plan to run on your treadmill, a 60-inch belt will be more comfortable and give you plenty of space. 




Surrounding space: An important factor to consider when purchasing a treadmill is considering the size of your space. You’ll need 2 to 3 feet on each side and in front of the treadmill, plus at least 6 feet behind the machine. You’ll also want to make sure your ceiling is high enough to accommodate your height when you’re standing on the deck of the treadmill. 

Moteur :

Et si vous vous servez du tapis roulant uniquement pour marcher, optez pour une CHP de moins de 2,5.

If you are regularly running or jogging, you will want to look for a model that includes cushioning on the belt to make things easier on your joints and help prevent injury. All mid- to high- end treadmills will include cushioning to different degrees, but treadmills on the lower end of the price spectrum generally do not. 

Console :

Low end treadmills will only give you small screens that offer basic information like time, calories, distance, and speed. As you move into more premium treadmills, you will get larger LED and LCD screen, including web-enabled touchscreens that give you additional information and options. 

Bien que tous les tapis roulants proposent des programmes d’entraînement, prenez également en compte votre style d’entraînement pour trouver le tapis roulant qui vous convient.


Si vous ne recherchez que l’essentiel, ou si vous aimez vous distraire pendant votre entraînement, vous pouvez trouver des modèles haut de gamme qui se connectent à des applications d’entraînement en ligne pour bénéficier de fonctions plus interactives.

Si la plupart des tapis roulants peuvent aller jusqu’à 10 ou même 12 mi/h et ont une pente inclinée jusqu’à 15 %, certains modèles offrent des options supplémentaires de vitesse et d’inclinaison.

Some treadmills provide tablet and other device capabilities with an integrated sound system so you can enjoy your favourite shows when you work out. You can also manage your programming and fitness goals on your device. 

La capacité :

N’oubliez pas de vérifier la capacité de poids de votre tapis de course avant de l’acheter. Ordinairement, les modèles d'entrée de gamme ont une capacité d’environ 250 lb tandis que les modèles haut de gamme peuvent supporter jusqu’à 325 lb.

Les garanties :

Warranties can also be a factor. They can differ depending on the manufacturer, so make sure you’ve got one that works for you. If you plan to use the treadmill frequently, a more comprehensive warranty will make sense.

In addition to a parts and labour warranty from the manufacturer, Canadian Tire also provides a free In-home Repair Service Warranty. For more service details, speak to a customer care representative.
