Buying a piece of home fitness equipment is another way to motivate yourself to work out. Most people who don’t like exercise always come up with excuses like, “I don’t have time”or “I don’t know where to work out”, so if there is a piece of workout equipment at home, this problem will be solved. There is plenty of fitness equipment out there, but the most commonly used one is none other than treadmill.
Hitting the treadmill is a fast and effective way to burn calories, and that’s the key to weight loss. When buying one for your home, make sure it is equipped with a waist trimming belt that helps reduce fat and relax and build muscles.
In addition, there are important things that you need to know about how to properly and safely use the treadmill to reap the full benefits of exercising on a treadmill, as follows:
Warm up by walking or jogging in place for at least 5-10 minutes before running on the treadmill;
Avoid running with a forefoot strike while running on the treadmill, because it can cause inflammation of leg muscles. It is recommended that you run with a heel strike and using force exerted by thigh muscles;
Alternate fast-paced running over short distance with slow-paced running over long distance using automatic programs on the treadmill to help stimulate metabolism and assist in breathing.
