Summary of Benefits of a Treadmill

A treadmill’s main advantage over running, jogging or walking outside is that you can do it in the comfort of your own home or a cosy gym. We have somewhat ‘unpredictable’ weather here in the UK so being able to improve your fitness in warmth and comfort is a major bonus. Who wants to run in the wind and rain?!

On a related theme, many people work unsociable hours and find that fitness facilities are closed when they return from work. Purchasing a treadmill for use in your home means you can exercise anytime day or night!

Apart from the sheer convenience of buying a treadmill for your home, there are more physiological benefits associated with them. Not only will your energy levels increase as your fitness improves, but as exercise releases endorphin’s (the body’s happy chemical), those people who use treadmills will find they feel less stressed! Lung capacity, which is also linked to a person’s fitness level, can be increased with regular exercise. The best way to improve this with a treadmill is to run for longer periods at a medium pace.

There are 2 other related benefits to using a treadmill. These are an increase in bone density and a decrease on wear and tear to joints.

Treadmills are cushioned with various unique methods and technologies that take much of the strain from joints during use. Instead of pounding the pavements (which aren’t the most flexible!), let a treadmill take much of that pressure whilst still getting a major workout.

Treadmills can help build/maintain bone density as the impact of running encourages bones to build up in order to tolerate the increased activity level.

Lastly and most obviously, using a treadmill can and will help you burn calories….as will any exercise! The more you exercise the more calories you burn. Simples!

As previously mentioned, running is a weight bearing exercise and besides increasing bone density this means that you will also burn more calories running that you will using an elliptical crosstrainer, a rowing machine, or an exercise bike. It is important to note that this is based an equal level of exertion on each type of equipment over the same duration.
