Buy a treadmill & get fit and healthy in private
A treadmill allows you to exercise in a safe environment at a time convenient to you, with no effort to get there. All you need to do is get on.
So, what are the benefits of using a treadmill?
Good for the heart
With a treadmill you can do as much or as little as you want. You want to walk a leisurely 5km, go ahead, you want to run 20km uphill, be my guest. Either way the cardiovascular benefits are limitless.
Even a short, brisk walk on a treadmill can improve your cardiovascular fitness by strengthening your heart and often reducing blood pressure as well. Regular walking or running can also reduce the bad cholesterol in your system and reduce your chance of a stroke.
While exercise cannot guarantee that you will lose all the weight that you’d like, it will go a long way in helping you control your weight. It will also make that slice of chocolate cake taste a lot more guilt-free and allow you to really enjoy those post workout beers. Regular exercise allows you to eat more and feel better at the same time.
Healthy body healthy mind
Without a doubt, exercise has multiple benefits that go beyond the body. One, when you exercise, your body produces endorphins, which make you feel good, the ‘runners high’ for want of a better description. But being healthy and fit also helps your brain function more effectively, makes you more confident, and increases your general wellbeing, which can alleviate symptoms of depression and help you relax.
Walking or running on a treadmill can increase the density of your bones, strengthen your skeleton and reduce the risk of bone disease when you age. With the low impact, easy access of a home treadmill, the benefits of regular walking and running can translate to serious benefits later in life.
Multiple fitness assistance
The beauty of using a treadmill is that you can tailor a session to suit different needs for your fitness and health, whether you can do a 20-minute walk at a leisurely pace or a 30-minute fast run at a 30-degree incline. If you feel so inclined, you can run a full marathon with uphills and downhills. As long as you do enough to up your heart rate and raise a bit of sweat without pushing yourself too hard, working out regularly on your treadmill will benefit you in ways you never thought possible.
Treadmills offer the user a variety of options, all of which have different benefits for your fitness and health. Speak to the fitness experts and let them help you plan a treadmill programme which will result in increased fitness, good health and all the benefits that go with it.
