Treadmill Fitness Equipment
A staple at most gyms, treadmills are popular for good reason: They accommodate almost any fitness level and goal. If weight loss is on your list, working out on a treadmill should be, too. Treadmills are a great way to burn calories and help with weight loss because they simulate a real-life movement: walking or running.
There’s one trick, though, that boosts your ability to burn calories for weight loss on a treadmill. That means no holding onto the treadmill’s side handles as you walk or run. The treadmill’s features also work well for weight loss. There’s also the calorie-zapping incline feature, allowing you to kick up the intensity without having to move faster or break into a run if you prefer a joint-friendly walk.
Regardless of where you fall on the treadmill love/hate spectrum, running indoors can be incredibly effective. First off, treadmills are safe: no uneven terrain, no scary dark streets, no icy patches or road running. Second, treadmills are convenient: they allow you to have all your food and nutrition, you can multi task with news and/or music, and they are located in almost every gym on the planet. Finally, treadmills are simply consistent: not only do you get the same run every time, but you get to run in a temperature-controlled environment with similar terrain and conditions.
