Treadmills are arguably the best cardio equipment investment you can make. Studies have shown that people will use, and stay in a routine, with treadmills more than other fitness equipment for many reasons. First, it is a very natural motion to walk or run. That means that there is no learning curve involved with using a treadmill. Second, walking and running is considered a weight bearing exercise. Supporting the body’s own weight while exercising forces the heart to work harder, which leads to higher calorie expenditure and more body fat burned over the time spent exercising. In addition, doctors recommend weight bearing exercise to not just keep bones and supporting structures strong, but to lessen the loss of bone density as we age (osteoporosis), especially with women. Third, treadmills have a motorized belt that will keep moving at the speed determined by the user. A treadmill does not know or care if you are tired, bored, lazy, or lethargic when exercising. A treadmill literally acts as your own personal trainer, motivating you to work harder and last longer. With other forms of cardio exercise, the body naturally tends to slow down as energy is expended over the course of a workout. With a treadmill, however, the exerciser is literally forced to keep moving at a set pace, so towards the end of a workout that person is actually working harder because he or she has to keep up with the machine. And, working harder equates to more cardiovascular benefit and reward for the time spent exercising. The bottom line is that you are more likely to stick with an exercise routine if you use a treadmill!
