Find out how exercising with a treadmill can be good for you, as well as discover the top 6 treadmill choices on the market today…

Positive Benefits of Treadmill Exercise

The positive benefits of exercising on a treadmill are seemingly endless…

  • Great for heart hearth
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Reduces the risk of numerous diseases
  • Reduces stress
  • Boosts your mood
  • You can exercise in the privacy of your own home
  • People of all fitness levels can use a treadmill
  • Allows you to exercise no matter what the weather is like outside
  • Exercise helps to raise your metabolism (aka your body’s fat-burning engine!)

There are other benefits as well, but you get the idea!

As part of a healthy diet, treadmill exercise can be a very effective weight loss tool. The average man or woman can burn over 100 calories walking 2-3 mph for just 30 minutes. 100 calories may not seem extraordinary, but keep in mind all of the other health benefits mentioned above. Read my post about not working-out to lose weight, and you’ll see that a healthy diet is an essential part of any weight loss plan – exercise alone won’t get the job done (at least in the long-term). In other words, don’t exercise for the sole purpose of losing weight.
