Timeless Fitness Tip

Treadmills are the most popular home exercise machines for aerobic fitness.


They simulate real life using the authentic movements of walking, running, or jogging. Studies have indicated that the use of a treadmill for an aerobic effect results in the burning of more calories than any other indoor exercise equipment. Generally, motorized machines are prefered.

It's important to research the different types of machines before you buy so that your treadmill does not end up as a clothes rack.

Non-motorized machines are suitable for walking but don't withstand the more vigorous movements of jogging or running. If you plan to jog or run, you'll need a more stable version with a relatively quiet motor. Also, an emergency shutoff is absolutely necessary for a motorized machine.

Treadmills range in price from a few hundred to thousands of dollars. The basic treadmill includes an electronic display that shows the speed, elapsed time, distance traveled, and the calories burned. The belt is at least 15 inches wide and 50 inches long. The incline has a 10 percent grade that can be adjusted during exercise. The motor allows for speeds of at least 8 to 10 miles per hour.
