Walking or running on a treadmill is great exercise and puts less stress on the body than walking or running on an outdoor surface.
They are quite versatile and can be utilized for walking, interval training, jogging or all out sprinting. Steady running burns calories but sprinting takes it to another level. We offer Precor, Life Fitness, BH, BodyCraft and Bodyguard.
Top 5 Reasons to Run on a Treadmill
Why use a treadmill?
You get a consistent, flat and forgiving surface which is a huge help if experiencing aches and pains.
Simulate tough terrain, increase incline or just mix and match your routines. With different programs or manual settings, flexibility is at your fingertips.
Improve Your Form
You may not know what you look like so running in front of a mirror allows you to make adjustments like maintaining a short, quick stride, lifting your knees and keeping your elbows bent at 90 degrees.
You don’t have to watch for cars, worry about distracted people or unfamiliar places. Stay focused on your workout and just run like the wind.
Treadmills provide good data. You know exactly how far you've gone, how many calories you’ve burned and what your heartrate is. It’s a great way to gauge progress and modify routines.
