Treadmills as power sources originated in antiquity. These ancient machines came in three major designs. The first was to have a horizontal bar jutting out of a vertical shaft. It rotated around a vertical axis, driven by an ox or other animal walking in a circle pushing the bar. Even humans were used to power them. The second design was a vertical wheel, a treadwheel, that was powered through climbing in place instead of walking in circles. This is similar to what we know today as the hamster wheel. The third design also required climbing but used a sloped, moving platform instead.

I purchased E55 couple of weeks a go from The Treadmill Factory from the Markham store, and I just love using it, it’s very quiet it has variety of programs and I can use it while I am watching TV I found it on line and I had a question how long will take for the delivery however the next day I got an email from the sales department Timika I just want to say Timika was so helpful to me as I am so picky when I purchase something, Timika was emailing me with information for different Elliptical and values back and forth until I decide to purchase the E55 I must say an amazing customer service. The Elliptical was deliver as schedule and was brought down to my basement by three guys that deliver it were so careful not to scratch my home. They assemble it in no time in as all, just want to say overall I would recommend The Treadmill Factory at the Markham location to buy for an amazing customer service, thank you so much, Rita

Medical treadmills are class IIb active therapeutic devices and also active devices for diagnosis. With their very powerful (e.g. 3.3 kW = 4.5 HP) electric motor powered drive system treadmills deliver mechanical energy to the human body through the moving running belt of the treadmill. The subject is not changing his horizontal position and is passively moved and forced to catch up with the running belt underneath his feet. The subject can also be fixed in safety harnesses, unweighting systems, various supports or even fixed in and moved with a robotic orthotic system utilizing the treadmill.

I'm a big, old guy with 35 years in the gym. At 260 pounds running has always been my nemesis, causing knee and hip pain. I own two other traditional treadmills and use them only for incline walking. My Air Runner has me actually running again, pain-free! I love the natural feel, the strike of my feet and the awareness of my glutes and calves actually firing. People seem to be daunted by the price point, but I think this machine is worth every penny.

Our virgin rubber hex dumbbells are very popular because unlike most dumbbells, they are made with virgin rubber which provides a more whole, tough and durable rubber material. This is because virgin rubber does not have to undergo the same chemical treatment that gives basic rubber its unpleasant smell. The toxic odors that are associated with regular rubber are effectively eliminated, meaning working out in your gym will not irate your sense of smell or give you a headache. Lastly, the shape of the handles of our hex dumbbells helps to reduce fatigue and maximize comfort. They are available from 3lbs all the way up to 120lbs.
The forerunner of exercise treadmills was designed to diagnose heart and lung disease, and was invented by Dr. Robert Bruce and Wayne Quinton at the University of Washington in 1952. Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper's research on the benefits of aerobic exercise, published in 1968, provided a medical argument to support the commercial development of the home treadmill and exercise bike.
