SPOTLIGHT ON EQUIPMENT
The treadmill is a hugely popular aerobic exercise machine. As with any heart-pumping cardio workout, it can help reduce your risk for heart disease and other chronic diseases, improve sleep, boost your mood, and improve brain function.
Treadmills can be used for a wide variety of workouts. The machines can be used for walking, running long distances—even doing high intensity interval training.
You can also integrate strength training into treadmill-based workouts. You can use the machine’s built-in workout programs. These workouts may vary your speed or incline throughout your workout to make your session more challenging.
Whether you’re trying to burn more calories, lose weight, build muscle, or improve your heart health, a treadmill is an excellent piece of workout equipment. Side Shuffles, walking lunges, there is so much more to treadmills than just “push the button and start walking.” Check out these websites and chart below for added ideas to your next treadmill workout.
