There are a lot of good reasons to purchase exercise equipment. The need to develop more active lifestyles is a global concern, and there are statistics everywhere that point to daily exercise being the key to getting fit and healthy. The Stamina InMotion II Manual Treadmill is an excellent entry level exercise machine that will fit into almost any living space.
Working out by walking is one of the most often suggested starting points for beginners, and remains beneficial through the life of the participant. Walking is also a low-stress low-impact form of exercise for those recovering from illness or injury. Walking outside can be inconvenient, and health clubs expensive and difficult to get to.
Of all the reasons for buying a treadmill, one factor stops a lot of people from doing it, and getting started on a healthy way of life: cost. It can be difficult to justify a high-priced machine when you're just starting out. The Stamina InMotion II Manual Treadmill is perfect for the beginning walker/jogger who wants to gain experience, and get healthy without going broke.
Features of the Stamina InMotion II Manual Treadmill
There aren't a lot of bells and whistles. This is a very basic machine designed to do one thing—provide a positive walking experience in a home environment. While it doesn't have any fancy entertainment inputs, that won't stop you from setting it up in front of the TV while you get your walking in while watching your favorite shows, or playing the stereo to get your groove on when you walk.
You don't need to be a computer whiz to work out on this treadmill either. There is no computer. There is no motor. It is a self-propelled treadmill that goes as fast, or as slow as your own motion deems fit.
If you have nearby neighbors, or want to work out without the aggravating whine of a motor, the Stamina InMotion II Treadmill is perfect for you. It is great for apartment dwellers without a lot of room, and with neighbors all around as well. It's quiet action, and steady performance lets you workout in peace.
Comfort and Room
The one area the Stamina InMotion II Treadmill doesn't skimp is in actual work out space. The long, wide tread gives you ample room to move and walk. It does, however have the excellent, and important ability to store easily and get out of the way in cramped living spaces. It folds up easily, and rolls effortlessly into a corner, under a bed or in a closet area.
There are a few drawbacks to the Stamina InMotion II, but fair evaluation means understanding that a lower-cost piece of equipment isn't going to have all the options of the gym-quality treadmills on the market. It is also more lightweight, which makes it good for small spaces, and moveability, but also makes it a little less stable, especially for use by heavy individuals, older people and children.
Walking on a manual treadmill means you are going to have to exert the effort into getting moving. Unlike a motorized unit that starts off when you push a button, and all you have to do is move your legs, with the Stamina InMotion II Manual Treadmill you have to provide the power, and that creates an even more fulfilling workout situation.
Incline for Intensity
The Stamina InMotion has two incline levels so you can get a good workout for your hamstrings, Achilles tendons, calves and thighs as well as maximizing the workout for your gluts and abs. You will have to manually set the incline levels, and they cannot be changed without stopping and getting off the machine to move them.
No Electricity Required
Don't have an available outlet? Don't want a higher electric bill? No problem. The Stamina InMotion II Manual Treadmill doesn't need electricity. Being self-propelled, and not having a computer means you don’t have to have wires everywhere, or provide power to get a workout.
It isn't a fancy computer, but the Stamina InMotion II Treadmill does have a way of gathering your workout stats so you can see how you are performing and how effective your workout is. The small, but useable, battery operated console is mounted in the middle of the handlebar brace, and gives you a readout on time lapsed, distance walked, speed during the workout, and even tabulates calories burned, although that figure is just a rough estimate as it does not take into effect age, sex or weight of the rider.
