Seniors looking for low-impact exercises to do at home should consider investing in a treadmill. No matter what the weather is outside, seniors will be able to exercise daily and avoid heavy pressure on their joints.
The best treadmill options for seniors include:
For seniors with limited space in their homes, a folding treadmill can be an appropriate choice. Priced at $649.99, the XTERRA TR150 has a large walking surface and a 5” LCD to provide data on time, distance, speed, and calories burned. It comes with 3 different incline levels and a speed range of 0.5 to 10 mph for seniors who prefer to walk or run.
At $1,249.99, the NordicTrack T Series costs more than other models. However, it comes with a 30-day iFIT Membership for seniors looking for premium videos when it comes to other workouts. It is also worth the investment in terms of the 10-year frame warranty and 2-year parts warranty, along with the FlexSelect deck cushioning to protect your joints.
For seniors looking for a Bluetooth-compatible option, the Sunny SF-T7515 perfectly fits the bill. It costs $553.99, and seniors can listen to their favorite workout music through the crystal clear speakers. Plus, it comes with 12 different incline levels, a BMI calculator, and a pulse sensor to monitor heart rate.
