Treadmill Workouts for Beginners


Treadmills still dominate as the most popular home or gym fitness machines on the market today. Their popularity lies in the ability to have complete control over a workout –between speed, distance, calories burned and inclination, you can take full advantage of an exercise session that will help you burn a considerable amount of calories. Furthermore, when the weather outside is gloomy, a treadmill workout can be achieved indoors in the comfort of your own home, thus adding to its appeal.

Whether you are looking to get back into the fitness game after a short hiatus, or are completely new to exercising, treadmill workouts are a great place to start. Walking or running is a natural movement, so when completing a treadmill workout, your body doesn’t really need to adjust to the physical demands often required by other machines. Going at a pace that you feel comfortable with to begin with, is essential to ensuring that you will return to a treadmill workout.

For the first few weeks, it is essential that you get used to a treadmill. Begin by performing a slow walk on flat terrain over a time that suits you. When you are more comfortable, gradually incline the treadmill and speed. When you become more advanced, mixing up walking and running on an inclined treadmill is a great way to get your heart rate up while priming your body for distance and speed.

Treadmill workouts are a great way to get fit and lose weight. Try it today!
