Commercial Treadmill Glossary of Terms
Commercial Treadmill = These are designed to be used all day in a commercial gym setting.
Light Commercial Treadmill = A light commercial treadmill is similar to the commercial treadmill, but designed for usage of less than 5 hours/day. For use in condominiums, rehabilitation centers, hotels, corporate gyms, and even residential home use.
Folding Treadmill = There are two type of treadmills. Folding and Fixed. A folding treadmills can fold up and roll away to another spot for easy storage. Then there are fixed treadmills, which once assembled usually stay in the same spot and do not fold up.
Motor Horsepower (HP) = Horsepower or HP is a measure of power. All else being equal, a more powerful motor is better as it will strain less under heavy load (and last longer). The heavier you are, the more horsepower you should get. Higher horsepower treadmills will cost more money.
Maximum User Weight = Each treadmill depending on its construction and horsepower of its motor has a maximum user weight limit. So if the limit is 300 lbs, and you are over 300 lbs., you should not buy this treadmill but look for one with a higher weight limit. If you weigh substantially less than the weight limit, this will put a lot less strain on the treadmill motor.
Miles per Hour = This signifies the highest speed the treadmill will go when you are running.
Incline Grade = This signifies the number of incline grades that this treadmill is capable of. Incline grades simulate walking or running up a hill.
Heart Monitor = Most treadmills have a heart monitor (grip or clip on type) which allows you to monitor your heart rate to meet heart rate goals for cardiovascular fitness.
Running Area = This is the running area or running deck area of the tread of the treadmill. Taller persons with longer strides may want a bigger running area.
Workout Programs = Almost all treadmills have a small computer and display where you can run multiple workout programs that vary the resistance and incline of the treadmill to simulate real walking or running. Examples are programs for the heart, or calorie burn.
LED/LCD Display = The treadmill will have a display to give you information (such as time, calorie burn, distance). They can be either LED lit (as seen on commercial treadmills), or LCD, which usually is backlit. The LED display is self illuminating and needs no backlight.
Bluetooth Enabled = Treadmills with Bluetooth allow you to share workout data with apps on your phone or tablet to keep track of progress.
Built-in Fan = Some treadmills have a built-in fan to cool you off during your workout.
Needs Assembly/ Fully Assembled = Most treadmills require some type of assembly after it is delivered. There are a few lightweight treadmills that come fully assembled right out of the box. These treadmills can fold down flat and sometimes fit under a bed.
