Buying Commercial Treadmills

At first sight, certainly when viewing images on the internet, most treadmills look fairly similar. The simple fact is that treadmills can vary hugely in engineering and component quality, just like so many other things we purchase in everyday life, from motor cars to white goods for the kitchen.

Buying a treadmill for a gym, then, needs careful consideration. Cheaper options, such as buying models that have been designed and built for use at home, should not be on your shopping list. For a start, your business insurers would probably reject a claim involving a piece of exercise equipment which does not have a commercial warranty. Which brings us on to the second reason - health and safety, which you are probably very familar with being the owner or manager of a modern business.

Third, it is money poorly spent because you will have to replace the treadmill far sooner than you would a machine built for a high volume commercial setting. So, not a good idea, financially.

And there`s a fourth reason not to cut corners, again a financial one. Income from your members. The existing ones will wonder what`s going on and likely move to another gym. And any new members you are hoping to get signed up would take a similar view when shown the equipment they are expected to use in exchange for handing over their hard-earned money, and look elsewhere.

What about funding the purchase of your next commercial treadmill? Hopefully, you will be making profits if you run an existing gym, or have a good relationship with your bank. You might also want to consider contacting a leasing company, and use leasing as a means of expanding or replenishing your treadmill range, and keep some of your working capital in reserve.

Choosing which brand should be given some careful consideration. There are quite a few to choose from. On our website you will see we sell Bodytone treadmills, and we`ve found these to be good, reliable machines at this price level. We also recommend what we believe to be the best two brands available in the world, Landice and Cybex, both of which have great heritages, each spanning nearly fifty years.
