The Star Trac 8TR is a full commercial grade treadmill. Its non-folding, heavy-duty base has a 500 pound user weight limit, telling you everything you need to know about its durability. Industrial strength treadmills are all non-folding because they are sturdier and more durable than folding treadmills. And while folding treadmills may look appealing cosmetically, as well as financially, they are miles away in terms of quality compared to what you would use in a gym. 

 

Advantages held by gym equipment but not shared with home fitness include premium bio-mechanics, a greater structural integrity, higher mechanical capacities, the latest digital enhancements and a stylish focus on the design. Here are a few of the reasons that purchasing gym equipment for your home is better than impulse buying a cheap $500 treadmill off of the Home Shopping Network.

 

1.) Premium Bio-Mechanics: If one feels comfortable on their workout equipment, they will look forward to using it and exercising for an hour actually becomes enjoyable. Feeling comfortable on the workout equipment that you use is essential, which is why there is so much time and effort that takes place during the innovative and developmental process during the creation of Star Trac machines.

 

There is a layered, in depth, caring common sense approach that goes into Star Trac's designing and building fitness equipment. There is an abundant amount of over-hyped, mechanically flawed and electronically handicapped workout equipment, flooding the fitness industry via the internet, infomercials and other forms of advertising.

 

Gimmicky pieces of workout equipment appear to be great deals on the surface due to low prices and high promises, however, lightweight and low budget machines have a high rate of breakdowns and returns.

 

2.) More Structural Integrity: Treadmills rated for daily usage in health clubs, have certain features that home exercise equipment does not. For example, commercial grade workout equipment has the fantastic quality of being mechanically able to withstand the wear and tear from users of up to 400 pounds and more.

 

You will notice at your local sporting goods store that the majority of their treadmills have user weight limits of around 250 pounds. Star Trac's 8TR has a 500 pound limit. Thicker steel gauge framework, along with heavier parts and bigger footprints, allow for commercial grade treadmills to last much longer than home fitness equipment.

 

3.) Latest Technology: Programming and statistical feedback such as heart rate, calories burned and other informative stats are more complete and user friendly on gym equipment, than home fitness equipment. Low grade fitness products do not come with enhanced technology such as custom workout programs. Therefore, the amount of creative programmability and user feedback on low budget, lightweight and smaller fitness equipment is far less than you'll find on treadmills in your local gym.
