Benefits of using a treadmill
Published: 6 December 2015
Don’t feel like going outside this winter? Maybe you just like to get a cardio workout in your own home. Flex Fitness Equipment has just the right machine for you. The treadmill is the most popular calorie-burning cardio machine on the market. Flex Fitness Equipment has both high-quality and affordable treadmills from top brands such as Tunturi, Bremshey and Lifegear. Here are the top reasons why you should invest in a treadmill and keep on exercising through the winter months:
Easy on your body
Walking or running is impact exercise. Many people with joint problems shy away from this activity because the impact causes discomfort. On a treadmill, there are shock absorbers that help soften the impact on your joints. This leads to less discomfort but also gives you weight-bearing exercise which promotes a healthy bone and muscle structure.
Rain, wind and humidity. Cold or hot temperatures. On a treadmill, you don’t have to worry about that. There is no weather. You are in the comforts of your own home with the temperature set to your liking.
Have you ever come home from work and not had the energy to go to the gym? Maybe you just don’t have the time. With a treadmill in your home, you don’t have to worry about that. You can just go into your personal workout room and get a cardio workout in. Gone is the extra 30 minutes it takes roundtrip to the gym. Having a treadmill in your own home frees up much-needed time in your busy life.
You might like to go the same speed for the same distance on your treadmill every day. That’s okay because that’s on option on your treadmill. There are many more though. You can adjust the incline and speed as well as choose from several programs including interval training and fitness tests. The options are yours and you can choose whichever one fits your best.
It FLAT OUT works
In just one mile on the treadmill, you can burn about 100 calories. On a stationary bike, it takes about four miles before you hit that calorie mark. The treadmill also provides weight-bearing exercise which is essential to good bone health. If you have limited time and want an efficient cardio machine that burns calories at a high clip, the treadmill is the perfect fit for you.
