Want to take more control of your running, walking or jogging terrain? Maybe you live in the hills or the plains, your neighborhood is a bit dangerous or you just hate the inconsistency of the weather. Maybe you just can’t get your fitness routine off the ground because the rain, hail or snow is just not working with you… Training on a home treadmill might just be the answer to getting you fit. Also, it’s a well established fact that walking or jogging on a treadmill is a great way to reduce joint strain in your knees, hips, back and ankles.
IMPROVING YOUR PERSONAL FITNESS WITH A HOME TREADMILL
A treadmill is a low impact way to avoid injury, but just because it’s low impact, it doesn’t have to mean a home treadmill isn’t a great way to get into shape.
One of the best features of most home treadmills is an incline mechanism that means you can control whether you’re walking a flat course or whether you want to try out an uphill track or even navigate a slight decline. Depending on the bells and whistles that come with your treadmill, you might even be able to adjust the intensity of your workout by driving the track faster or slower to encourage you to keep pace. And there are probably going to be statistics available from your digital console so that you can monitor your heart rate, distance and even calories burned.
In some more advanced models you can even feed this information wirelessly to your computer so you can keep track of your progress over time. This all adds up to increasing your chances of achieving your fitness goals, whether it’s simply getting into better shape or losing a bit of extra weight.
