Treadmills For Children - Junior Child Sized Treadmill For Kids

Updated on May 30, 2014

A child treadmill for kids allows your young ones to work out alongside mommy and daddy burning off some excess energy and allowing you to get in an uninterrupted workout at the same time.

Generally, you would want to keep kids away from your full-sized treadmill as they are definitely not designed for little bodies and there are too many hazards for little hands and feet. A child size treadmill is designed to be safe for them to use but lets them feel like they are working out just like the grown ups. Infant treadmills are non-motorized so the belt only moves when they make it move and stops when they do so there is no danger of being injured by the moving belt or other motorized components. Manual belt movement means treadmills for kids will only go as fast or as slow as your child is comfortable with and not force them into an adult style workout which is not the desired purpose of these exercisers.

Whilst the cute factor of these mini treadmills for children is really high, with their mini-me style and bright child-friendly colors, they are also full functioning exercise machines capable of burning off excess energy throughout the winter months when leaving the house might not be possible and they start bouncing off the walls with boredom. Some have an odometer with speed and exercise timer on the front and stability hand bars to prevent falling just like the adult machines.

The best treadmill for kids is the Redmon Fun and Fitness Kid Treadmill which is designed specifically for use by young children.

The Redmon kids treadmill is bright and colorful and designed for little bodies to use safely in the home environment. This is just like the manual treadmills for adults which are self-propelled by using the power in your own legs to move the belt. No motor means it is a safe way for your child to use the machine without you having to worry about them trapping body parts in moving machinery. It's ideal for your little ones to use whilst you work out on your own treadmill, keeping them entertained and close at hand so you can fit in your own workout without having to worry about them getting up to mischief in your absence. The Redmon Treadmill for children has a sturdy tubular steel frame which is padded in all the important areas with foam to prevent knocks and bumps from accidental falls. No lead paint is used on this machine.

    Run you little sod, or I'll make you do Sudoku! Seriously though - I think I'd go the route of getting a dog for them to walk first! (well maybe the dog is for me). In some cases a dog is not good (no one home during the day for example) - so these treadmills could be a good idea. We should invent one where they need to go a certain distance in order to power their game system fo 1/2 hour - that would get them fit!
