No matter what your fitness level or goal, we’ve got some awesome tips and treadmill workouts to get you moving
Exercise is so convenient when you have a treadmill
at home. It doesn’t matter what the
weather is like – rain, hail, or blistering sun shine, and it doesn’t matter what time of day it is. Treadmill workouts are great for beginners all
the way up to elite athletes. If you only have a spare few moments or prepared to battle the hill climbs for an intense 30 minutes, it is a seriously
flexible and versatile option.
Here are some of our top tips and workouts for getting the most out of your treadmill depending on how you feel like exercising.
Use the incline - If you don’t feel like an intense cardio session, an incline setting generates more muscle activity than walking or running on
a flat surface.
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) - If you struggle to find the time to exercise, or need variation, HIIT could be great for you. It
involves alternating between periods of high-intensity training and rest.
Change your speed - CardioTech treadmills have pre-programmed workouts that vary the speed and incline. Take advantage of these to help improve
cardiovascular health by varying your effort and banish boredom!
