Buying a home treadmill? Treadmills are still the most popular choice among exercise equipment buyers today. Why do many people invest in a home treadmill? Here are the major benefits of buying your own home treadmill:
Burn more calories:
Treadmills burn more calories per hour than any other exercise machine. A study by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) showed that a vigorous workout on a treadmill burns around 700 calories, compared to 627 for stair climbers and 498 for stationary bikes.
Another study done by the Medical College of Wisconsin and the VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, showed that calories burned on the treadmill for 60 minutes averaged 705 - 865, more than a stair machine, rowing machine or stationary bike.
Workout whenever you want:
With your own treadmill, you have the freedom to workout at any time of the day that you want. No waiting in the lines at the health club, no speeding to the gym to get in before 'the rush', no walking outside at night in the dark.
Wear whatever you want:
With a home treadmill you can wear whatever you want to workout. No worrying if your shorts match your T-shirt. No worrying if your shirt is too ragged or if your sweat pants are too loud.
Workout for as long as you want:
I don't know about you but I hate, hate, hate it when someone kicks me off the treadmill at the gym because my 'time is up'. With a home treadmill you have the freedom to go as long (or as little) as you want.
Get the body you've always wanted:
It's a fact: when it's convenient you'll exercise more. Which means you have the power to get the kind of body you've always wanted. Tighten those buns, tone those abs, say 'good bye' to that spare tire and 'hello' to a tiny waist with your own treadmill.
No more boredom:
How many times have you gone to the gym and been bored out of your mind within 10 minutes of your workout? With a home treadmill you can set it up in front of your tv and watch your favorite shows or movies.
Before you know it you'll have gone farther than you even realized - and burned more calories too. That means a better body in less time.
A simple way to exercise for those of us who aren't gym bunnies:
If you're not a muscle bound, 0% body fat gym bunny, a home treadmill is a simple, easy way to lose weight and stay in shape. Treadmills are easy to use and simple to work for anyone, regardless of fitness level.
These are just a few benefits of owning your own home treadmill. Chances are you have your own reasons for wanting one.
