Exercise Treadmills Are The Most Popular Exercise Equipment - Articles Surfing
Exercise treadmills provide a great way to burn calories and give basic training to your walking muscles as well as practice your walking form. Modern treadmills have some pre-programmed workouts to give you a controlled workout challenge. The treadmill may also have readouts for heart rate, calories burned, etc. which give you feedback data so that you can see how you are performing at any moment. Remember, more speed equals more calories burned. Instead of increasing the distance, try to speed up, increase the tempo so that you can stress your body and burn the most calories. According to the Medical College of Wisconsin study you burn 865-705 calories on an average with a 60 minutes treadmill workout.
There are a lot of advantages related to the use of exercise treadmills. First of all, there is the safety factor. Working out at home, or at the gym is much safer then running outside. And since you are inside, you have easy access to restrooms, water, and changing your gear.
Another great thing is that you don't depend on the weather. You can even watch TV during your training. And last, but not least, you have no excuses for missing a workout.
Statistics show us that more than 40 million people buy treadmills every year and the number of buyers is increasing every year. In fact if you go into more detailed stats you will find that treadmills alone account for over one third sales of all home exercising equipment. So as you can see, treadmills are getting very popular these days and it looks like they are the better choice when compared to stair machines, stationary bikes and all other exercise equipments.
Keep in mind that a treadmill is an expensive purchase, so you must think wisely before you buy one. Naturally, you want a treadmill that is affordable, durable and compatible with your body. The Internet can be of great help when searching for the right one. The best way to do so is by reading online ratings and reviews given by experts as well as common people on different brands and range of treadmills. Also, check the official websites for additional reviews and the price.
Probably the toughest part is finding a treadmill that is compatible with your body structure. It is particularly dependent on what injuries you have and how you deal with it. Test before you buy. The testing time for each of the machines should be more than twenty five minutes as anything less will not give you an accurate result. Go to the local gym or at the manufacturer's office. If you are buying your first fitness machine you should not necessarily go with the one with many features but should consider the one which is more durable in the long run.
A good exercise treadmill will come with a lengthy warranty period ' at least one year. Be sure the manufacturer is one who has the standing in the market that gives his products good warranty as well.
Even after your best selection, how the equipment performs depends on the spot you choose to install it. You need to be sure you have a large enough space to place your treadmill.
