- Higher user and heavier user.
Once you have all these data you have to start looking at models that fit your needs. Or if you prefer you can give us this information in a comment, and we will help you to get the perfect model for you!

HOW TO TIGHTEN THE TREADMILL?
The treadmills are adjusted by pressing the roller, so we warn you that tightening the roller too much will reduce the life of the treadmill to a great extent and can also cause problems in other components.
If when you do the workouts notes as the carpet slides means that the running surface has been stretched, producing a sliding through the rollers. This is very common on new treadmills.
In the vast majority of treadmills there are two screws on the back of the treadmill (just at the end of the running surface on both sides of the treadmill). Turn this screw one quarter in a clockwise direction, and if you see that it is still sliding, turn it another quarter until it is perfectly tense. Never twist the screw more than a quarter, since you could spend tensing and thus generate problems in the treadmill.
