Home Treadmills

Bing Home In A Treadmill For Fitness And Long Life.

Though not the be-all and end-all of everything, engaging in physical activity does have effects that can be very beneficial to your health. First, it helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints. Not only that, but it has a direct effect on weight control, building lean muscles, and fat reduction. Physical activity can also prevent or delay the development of high blood pressure and helps reduce blood pressure in some adolescents with hypertension.

If physical education doesn’t do the job (especially if you’re no longer schooling), then engage in physical activity at home by your own initiative. Home exercise equipment, such as treadmills and stationary bikes, have been known to produce the same effects as running or walking outside.

Even recent studies have proved that treadmill is the best exercise equipment. Studies carried out by the Journal of American Association showed that treadmills have easily outpaced an exercise bicycle, a cross-country skiing machine and a rowing machine. The study gained importance as it was conducted with a group of volunteers at the Milwaukee Veterans Administration Hospital. The volunteers were made to do a series of workouts on different machines, each time exercising at what felt like the same intensity.

To measure the number of calories burned, researchers used a special device. Dr. Martin Hoffman of the Medical College of Wisconsin found that “the treadmill allowed the individuals to burn as much as 200 calories per hour more than the bicycle ergometer, which came out having the lowest energy expenditure.”

Choice in Home Exercise Equipment
As a home exercise equipment, the treadmill presents both convenience and affordability in one neat package. It’s not as expensive as other home exercise equipment and yet it produces very nearly the same positive results. Not only that, but the treadmill has always been a favorite among exercise enthusiasts, whether they do their exercises at home or in the gym.

Using a treadmill to exercise and burn down calories is very simple, even the most un-sporty individual can do it. Why? Because a treadmill requires nothing more form you than doing something that you’ve been doing for most of your life – WALKING.

According to the annual consumer survey of the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association, more than 45 million Americans currently use treadmills today, either at home or in a gym. They are even more popular than stationary bikes, stair machines, ellipticals, and rowing machines.

Perhaps, what makes treadmills really stick among the mass of exercise and fitness enthusiasts is that it can guarantee a consistent workout in all seasons and in all climates. With a treadmill, you do not have to think about common running worries, such as weather conditions – too hot, too cold, too windy, too wet, too humid, and so on. Treadmills provide a means of exercise that is “just right.”
