Calorie and Energy Expenditure Information
What is a Treadmill?
Fitness treadmills look like conveyor belts. They are designed to give users a good indoor cardio-aerobic workout by walking, jogging or running. You walk/run on the same spot, the treadmill-surface moves, so you experience the motion of walking/running without actually moving forwards. Despite the rise of other fitness equipment such as the elliptical-trainer, and the increasing varieties of exercise bike, the treadmill is still number one when it comes to indoor exercise-workouts.
Use a Treadmill for Effective Cardio Exercise
A gym treadmill is highly effective for a total cardiovascular workout. Good for all types of fitness levels, it burns more calories than most other gym apparatus, and several studies (including one by the American Medical Association) have shown that training on a treadmill produces significant cardio-respiratory benefits, especially when the walker/runner works the upper-body through arm movements.
Treadmill Machines Also Develop Muscle
Aside from it's aerobic benefits, a treadmill works the large muscle-groups in your body, like the butt gluteal muscles (Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius, Glutus Minimus) and the thighs (quadriceps and lower-thigh muscles). No wonder consumers spend more money on treadmills then any other home exercise equipment.
Treadmill Programs and Information Feedback
Most good quality treadmills have controls to adjust incline as well as speed, and the display console typically provides feedback on speed, distance covered, calories burned, and sometimes heart-monitoring data.
Guidelines for Buying a Treadmill
(1) Wait until you can afford a good quality
machine. If you intend to workout regularly, buy a good quality motorized
treadmill and avoid manual machines or budget motorized versions. The
cheaper the treadmill, the shorter it's lifespan and the less fitness
benefits it's likely to offer.
Treadmill and Weight Control
Treadmill machines improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Treadmills need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
