Here are five benefits of a treadmill exercise that we think you should know.
1. A nonstop experience
Running on a treadmill as opposed to running in an outdoor environment is a completely different experience. This is the case because you simply can’t quit walking on a treadmill! The continuous nature of walking/jogging/running on a treadmill builds a stronger level of endurance and stamina. In a walk or any outdoor setting, whilst you jog you can always relax and take a break.
2. A set, disciplined program
You can create your own types of varying program and exercise schedules on a treadmill. This maintains stability and continuity in your plan. As opposed to that, if you’re jogging daily without a machine to tell you how much miles you’re covering or an estimated amount of calories you have burnt, you’re almost bound to quit at a lesser level everyday!
3. Counter depression!
A recent study at Duke University found that even as little as eight minutes on a treadmill can help to dramatically, although temporarily, reduce symptoms of depression. Exercise in general has been said to alleviate and diminish depression. Since i gets the blood flowing and an ample supply of oxygen is given to all parts of the body, the mind remains free and in a relaxed state.
The motivation to work out using a treadmill is greater as opposed to walking or jogging outdoors. A treadmill spells convenience due to the fact that it is situated right in your house, at the location of your choosing! Otherwise, in order to run outside to exercise, you have to select a park which may be at a distant location. You have to get up at a certain time and dress up. With treadmill, exercise as per your own will!
5. Safety in all forms
A treadmill ensures you remain safe and healthy due to its various benefits. It has a heartbeat monitor which you can check from time to time in order to make sure you haven’t over exercised. Also, you get an opportunity to exercise within the confines of your house.; what can be more safer than that!
Lastly, we would just like to urge you that if you have one at your home, start making good use of it right away! Running gets your blood flowing, helps keep a healthy heart not prone to heart attacks and abnormal blood pressures. Remain fit as a fiddle and become as strong as an athlete!
