FreeMotion Treadmills

Get your Best Body Right at Home

Without ever taking a step outside of your house, you can get in the best shape of your life on any iFit powered home fitness equipment.

One of the most popular types of home exercise equipment is the treadmill, which provides a straightforward, efficient aerobic workout. For many, treadmills are a good choice to begin a new exercise routine because walking is well tolerated by most individuals regardless of fitness level and for most back conditions. As strength and endurance are developed, the treadmill can be used for jogging and/or for interval training.

Tackling another workout on the treadmill may make you feel a bit like a mouse running on a wheel, but this common piece of equipment offers such a variety of benefits that it is tough to ignore. Run, walk or jog, it doesn’t matter. The treadmill can help you burn calories, build speed and endurance and even improve your sex life. Who said that working out wasn’t fun?

When you run, you primarily target your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and calf muscles, but your abdominal muscles are also used to help maintain posture and to assist with the slight rotation of your spine. If you do not jog regularly, focus on building a solid foundation first. You should be able to run 30 minutes without stopping within eight weeks of training, according to the "Runner's World" website. Switch between walking and jogging intervals to build the foundation. With each workout, try to jog a little longer than the time before. Once you can run continuously for 30 minutes, you have the appropriate foundation to tackle speed intervals and add the incline. But be aware that running is a high-impact exercise that can lead to discomfort in your joints. If you have knee or ankle issues, running may worsen the problem. If this is the case, you may want to stick to brisk walking on the treadmill to minimize the impact.

As you pound away the miles on the treadmill, you are burning hundreds of calories, but you are also providing your body with several other health benefits. Just 30 minutes a day, three days a week, on the treadmill leads to improved sleep habits, better endurance, increased interest in sex, increased energy and stamina and reduced cholesterol levels, according to a report in "The Primary Care Companion to the The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry." Running strengthens your heart and lungs, but it also reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering your blood pressure and improving your cholesterol levels. To achieve all these benefits, you need to achieve a brisk walking pace on the treadmill. And don’t worry if you can’t do 30 minutes all at once; three 10-minute walks in a day have shown to have the same benefits as one continuous workout, according to the study in the "The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry."
