Unlike most treadmills, the manual treadmill is powered not by electricity but by your own effort to move the belt while walking or running. Your pace and motion control the speed. Popular electric models come with computerized settings, speeds and inclines that can target certain areas of the body, or even certain training regimens, such as strength training
A manual treadmill is an inexpensive way to exercise indoors. Automatic treadmills are very expensive and may require yearly maintenance, whereas the manual can be purchased for under 50000 naira. With a manual treadmill you can avoid weather-related circumstances that may interfere with your workout. You can run, power walk, walk, lunge and side skip on a manual treadmill, just as if you were on an automatic treadmill.
