Reasons to buy a Treadmill
We all have such busy lives these days. Whether this spending long hours in the office or time spent
looking after our families. We then have to cram in the necessary appointments and there can be
lots of extra pressure to set time aside for friends and family. It makes it really difficult to fit time in
for exercise and any fitness routine we choose to do.
Many of us find that it is very important to us to keep fit but it is increasingly difficult to make time
to dedicate to ourselves. We shouldn’t fall into this trap as there is always a solution. Many people
find that exercise equipment in the home means that they can actually complete their fitness
program with minimal fuss. The equipment is on hand day or night, even if it is for a snatched 25
minutes before your morning shower or last thing at night before you go to bed.
The most popular piece of home gym equipment is unsurprisingly the treadmill. The treadmill does
not take up a lot of room in the home and it can be used for such a wide range of workouts. This
could range from a brisk walk to some serious cardiovascular workouts to even running a marathon.
Many of us get home from a busy day at work with all the intentions of going to the gym but as soon
as we get home we then can’t be bothered to:
Get changed into gym gear
Travel to the gym
Prepare for your workout
Shower and change
It sounds so easy “I’ll go to the gym after work” but before you know it there are 6 individual steps
to take and it all takes up so much of our precious time. By having a treadmill in the house there
are no excuses. You are immediately going to be cutting out stages 2, 3 and 5 and saving yourself so
much time and energy. You will have no concerns over the weather putting a halt to your run and
the best bit is that you can catch up on all your TV programs while you work out.
Many people that have a treadmill in the house choose to get their exercise routine completed
before they even get to work. They get up (some even exercise in their pyjamas) and jump on the
treadmill. They then catch up on the news or whatever programs as they workout and they then
shower and get ready for work. The majority of people find that this helps them become more
productive at work as before they were still fully waking up for the first half hour of the workday
whereas now they are fully awake and energised before they even get to work. They are raring to
start their day.
This way they also have the full day and evening ahead of them to dedicate to friends, family and
whatever else they wish to do.
Treadmills are increasingly popular items to have in the home. They allow us to fit our exercise
routines around our busy lives, rather than have the gym and the weather dictate what we can and
There are an increasing number of women purchasing treadmills as this allows them to complete
cardiovascular workouts in the safety of their own home. Many women do not feel safe going out
running at night time. Even the early evening can feel a little daunting when the roads are quieter.
Not only does having a treadmill give the ladies full flexibility for the times of their workouts but it
also gives them peace of mind with regards to their safety. Many women find that it gives them a
whole new exercise option as they would never previously have gone out after dusk so all exercise
had to be crammed into spare daylight hours. These same women now come home from work and
even if it is late, they enjoy an evening workout.
The best bit about cheap treadmills are that you can set the workout as gentle or as hard working as you
like. You can even run a marathon in the comfort of your own home.
Some people study marathon routes and then simply alter the gradients as appropriate so that their
workout mirrors the real thing.
Treadmills are an excellent investment due to all the hours you can put into your training. So many
of us have signed up to the gym and then stopped going. The main reason for this is that by the time
we get home from a busy day at work, we lose the motivation to go to the gym. It is a vicious circle
as when you miss one workout, you lose motivation for the next and the whole thing snowballs until
one day you realise that you have missed a full month! Unfortunately we can never get our money
back that we have wasted on gym subscriptions.
Gym subscriptions are certainly not cheap and nine times out of 10 you don’t cancel after the first
month of missed gym visits “just in case you decide to go back”, so in the end you have paid 2-4
months worth of subscriptions when you have been a handful of times or not at all.
With having the treadmill in your home you are unlikely to fall into the bad trap mentioned above
as it is so easy just to go and jump on your treadmill and you can just catch up on your television or
radio programs while you work out. However, if the worst did happen and you found you were not
using your treadmill as much as you should be you can simply sell the treadmill onto someone else
and get your money back. That way you will not feel as if you have lost out financially.
So not only can your treadmill help you to feel safe while you workout but it can also save you an
absolute fortune in the long run.
