Protect your treadmill and prevent problems by keeping it clean and performing well. Kits include cleaning solution, scrub brush, applicator wand, and instructions. You shouldn't use just any lubricant on a treadmill, our treadmill repair expert Dan Thompson especially warns against using WD-40. Instead, consult your user's manual or manufacturer first and buy a treadmill-specific lubricant.
A treadmill mat protects both the treadmill and your floor or carpet. Save wear and tear on your floor or rug and keep the sweat from soaking in. The mat will also make it easier to vacuum around the treadmill to keep dust, pet hair and carpet fiber away from the motor and belt, where it can cause damage over time. A treadmill mat also dampens the vibrations and noise.
3. Reading Rack
I like reading while exercising. This rack slips over the monitor of your treadmill or other cardio exercise machine. It is clear, allowing you to see the controls underneath, while securely holding your book or magazine.
If you don't have your treadmill positioned in front of a TV already, or a built-in TV in your treadmill, this 15-inch LCD TV comes on a height-adjustable stand to position in front of your treadmill or other exercise machine. You can hook it up to any antenna or cable, or use the built-in DVD player. It runs on either batteries or plug-in. Come to think of it, it would be handy to wheel anywhere in the house.
