What a Fitness Treadmill Can Do for Your Body

Getting into or staying in shape isn’t as hard as you might believe. You would think that the formula of ‘burn more calories than you eat’ would be simple enough to lose weight and keep it from coming back. And it is. But only exercise is the door to proper weight loss and a fitness treadmill holds that key.

How you lose the weight does matter. Quick or fad diets do not work in the long run. You might drop a clothing size, but in the end, that weight will come back. Starving yourself isn’t a healthy way to lose.

On a fitness treadmill, you’ll be walking – and walking is the number one way to lose weight. So why get a treadmill? Why not just walk outside on the sidewalks? Most walking injuries occur to the ankles and knees due to connecting the foot repeatedly with a hard surface. Walking or running on sidewalks or asphalt jars your joints and puts stress on your joints. Add that to an uneven surface and it’s pain waiting for a place to happen.

With a fitness treadmill, you get better cushioning and an even surface. Those are the benefits just starting out. But once you get going, this kind of exercise elevates your cardio vascular performance. Walking lowers not only stress but also your bad cholesterol and blood pressure levels.

Not many people realize that each muscle in your body takes part in the workout and you’ll end up more toned not only on your leg and calf muscles but your arms, waist and buttocks as well.

You’ll get adjustments on the speed and the level with the push of a button. Intensity in exercise levels can range from mild or moderate to intense. These adjustments mean that everyone can take part in fitness, even couch potatoes looking for a change.

Exercising for just thirty minutes a day can change your body’s fitness level. If it’s so simple, why don’t more people do it? Because it’s not easy to get into workout clothes in the mornings or evenings and head out to the gym hoping you can find a treadmill that’s not in use.

If you have a treadmill at home, you get to burn calories and fat, tone your muscles and if you’ve thought about getting one but thought boredom might be a factor, you haven’t considered the versatility of owning one.

You can change up the exercise routine. You can walk, jog or run. You can read a book or magazine or watch TV. A fitness treadmill is the easiest way to lose weight and get in shape all year round. Thirty minutes a day is all it takes to get fit and stay there.
