Let's face it - a caliper is a caliper - this is a good brand name and the caliper works great. What makes this caliper probably better than others on the market is the service you received from The Treadmill Factory. There was a problem with shipping charges with my order and this company took care of them immediately without delaying the shipment.
Some manufacturers produce durable commercial models made to withstand frequent use in a fitness club environment, at prices that can be in excess of $4,000. Inexpensive models are available for home use at prices starting around $200. More expensive elliptical trainers – especially commercial machines – are more likely to offer more features such as extensive programs and better adjustment options.
It is an entry level commercial quality machine, at a reasonable price. It’s a sturdy machine, built well (very solid). It’s fairly quiet to; I think my heavy breathing during a workout is louder than the sound of the moving parts of this machine. It has a reasonably sized cup holder to hold your beverage and an “Over Molded Reading Rack/Tablet Holder”. It’s a perk but when you’re working out, why would you want to be reading? I guess it can be used to hold your tablet so you can play music as you’re working out, but for anybody who uses it to hold reading material....put down your reading material(s) and focus on your workout! Just my two cents.
Advanced applications are so called omnidirectional treadmills. They are designed to move in two dimensions and are intended as the base for a "holodeck". There are several solutions which were proposed and research continues because some issues remain unsolved, such as large size, noise and vibration. There are parallel developments being conducted by researchers working on projects sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs to create virtual reality environments for a wheelchair trainer in order to promote therapeutic exercise.[18]

How does treadmill cushioning work? It's not like the stuffing in a couch; it's more like the suspension or shock absorption system for an automobile. Under its workout belt, the typical treadmill has a 1" thick deck made of wood or a wood-like synthetic material. Running on the deck would be similar to running on a sidewalk -- except that under the deck, and supported by the treadmill's steel frame, are shock absorbers. An example of cheap shock absorbers is metal springs. Higher quality treadmill cushioning components are elastomer grommets, usually made from natural rubber.

Elliptical trainers are primarily driven by the user's legs, and most are combination designs having handle-levers attached to each pedal-link to enable some burden on the arms and to provide a secondary source of driving power. The user grips the handles below shoulder height and pushes and pulls the arms while shuffling the feet back and forth within elliptically-shaped paths. Thus the oscillating handle-motions are dependent on – and coordinated with – the constrained pedal-motions. Some poorly designed machines are too dependent on the user's leg power, producing excessive handle speeds due to mechanical ratios that do not provide enough mechanical advantage to the handle-levers. Consequently, such machines might feel to the user as if his arms are simply "going along for the ride" rather than performing a meaningful portion of the work. Better models of elliptical trainers offer a more balanced – or even harmonious – combination of arm and leg exercise in useful, proper ratios.
For multi-taskers, there's always the desktop treadmill. This machine combines a motorized treadmill with a desktop. Some desktops feature mounts for computer screens and other devices, so vibrations or movement caused by your walking or running won't send them tumbling to the ground. Desktop treadmills are a great way to incorporate healthy activity into a busy lifestyle. They do, however, take up more room than regular treadmills, making them less suitable for smaller homes and office spaces.

Thickness: Belt thickness makes a dramatic difference to treadmill performance. If a belt is just one-ply, it's probably prone to ripping or stretching. If a belt is two-ply or thicker, it can likely serve for many more miles before it needs to be recalibrated or replaced. The extra thickness can also help the treadmill operate quietly, making it better for home use.
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.
Our service department, staffed with knowledgeable technicians, is a unique outlet that allows customers direct access to customer service regarding technical issues with their fitness products as well as access to parts.
