Treadmills - Ideal For Home Exercise


Treadmills are ideal for exercising from home. They can be used on there own or if you are starting a home gym you can use them as an addition to other equipment such as the exercise bike, weight etc. The treadmill is ideal for both beginners and the more advanced as you have the options of walking or jogging at different speeds and inclines. All the major manufacturers such as Weslo, Reebok, Nordic Track etc have some excellent treadmills available. Costing will vary considerably depending on what you require. Some of the treadmills have built in heart monitors with mountainous terrain programs and races. If you are tight on a budget you can get a more basic model that will have a more moderate function level.

Cross training and treadmills:

We are all encouraged to do aerobic exercise that has excellent cardio benefits and overall health. The treadmill can be used combined with the dual way exercise bikes for cross training. The treadmill is geared more towards an overall aerobic exercise but is limited in upper body exercise. Combining the treadmill exercise with an upper body exercise such as using a dual function exercise bike or some free weights will give your body a complete workout.

Is a treadmill good for rehabilitation?

Firstly ask your doctor before ever using any fitness equipment if it is new to you or especially if you intend using the equipment for rehabilitation purposes. If you are using the treadmill for rehab after a sports injury such as knee ligament or ankle etc (including broken bones) you will need a treadmill with excellent cushioning on the under carriage. Such injuries require delicate training with little or no impact. If you are recovering from a health problem such as heart the treadmill is the ideal equipment that allows you set your own pace and build slowly (once again seek medical advice first).

Exercise is boring:

Agreed, exercise can be boring if you let it. If you are exercising at home you have excuses of being bored. Use the treadmill for 30 minutes per day in front of the TV and the time will fly, you might end up even doing more than you realise. You can add in more relaxed music to pass the time if you wish. Home exercise is only boring if that's the excuse you want to use to get out of doing it.

Cardiovascular Exercise is a necessity:

The treadmill is the ideal exercise equipment to give you a cardiovascular workout. Your heart needs exercise to function properly and it is recommended that you do at least 25 to 30 minutes per day exercising. Combined with a good balanced diet the treadmill will go a long way in helping you achieve a healthy lifestyle.

What are the main benefits of using the Treadmill?The treadmill has many advantages but none more important than improving your quality of life. By this we mean:

·Increased general fitness

·Improved self confidence

·Better sleeping

·More energetic

·Improved libido

·More toned figure

In general treadmills are ideal for the home. There are even foldable treadmills if you are a little tight for space. There is a treadmill to suit all budgets but obviously the more you spend the more functionality such as computer aided programs you get. Check out the manufacturers warranty, they can vary and in some cases you need to package the treadmill up and send it back to the shop for repair, these should not be purchased. You need a treadmill that has a call out warranty. Treadmills will at some stage require some maintenance, the runner may have to be replaced after a certain amount of time so check out the prices for spares before you buy.

Internet Shopping for treadmills:

Shopping on the Internet is the ideal way to view the different models and ranges and quite often you will save a lot of money if you purchase on the internet. If you do decide to purchase online check out the dimensions, all might look well on screen but when delivered could be bigger than you first expected. Shipping is generally cheap but do check as I have seen some companies charge more than they really should.
