Feb 20, 2008
Jogging or a walk in the park may not be so enjoyable at this time and age especially if you reside in one of the most industrious and busiest cities in the world. Only a few parks look enticing as more and more of these playgrounds and recreational areas are being tinted with the effects of pollution to our once green and clean world. Yes, you might find yourself coughing off from inhaling the smoke from a motorist old car. Or perhaps your greatest objection is the heat of the midday sun. With global warming just around the corner, you may find yourself sweating more than what you had expected. It may thus be advisable to just exercise at home with all the fumes and the litter that are lying around. And when it comes to jogging or brisk walking at home, the most in demand exercise equipment as of date are the treadmills.

Ranking as number one among the cardiovascular workout machines that are available in the market as per the American Medical Associations, treadmills are known to be highly popular in almost all corners of the world. As a lot of people prefer jogging or walking as compared to other exercises like cycling, swimming and all other sports. Not everyone is born athletic and a treadmill does it work to accommodate the average person's standard need to sweat it out. Using a treadmill burns out as much calories as you were jogging and maybe even more.

One reason why treadmills are preferred is because of convenience. On a rainy day, jogging is a no-no. Treadmills, on the other hand, have no concern for the change in weather conditions. You can use your treadmill and work out anytime of the day, any day of the year, rain or shine. No more missing your daily run because the weather is bad outside. You can also avoid getting headaches or heat strokes when the climate is hot and humid. Injuries are prevented with the use of a treadmill as well. Treadmills are designed to allow for shock absorption so your joints are safe from getting hurt from having to step and run on asphalts or concrete.

With the feature to control and manage the speed and incline of your treadmill, you are more likely to be most comfortable when using a treadmill. Pre-program workouts are also available. These include programs for fat burning, hill training or interval training.

Some treadmills are equipped to provide information and to store data. In the former, you may be able to get information on how far the distance you have walked or ran and your speed. Recorded information on previous workouts would make a good challenge for you. If you are one person who does not like complacency but loves to improve and improve by time then this information would work best to your advantage. You find yourself exceeding and exceeding your noted benchmarks.
