The benefits of treadmill running

There are endless benefits of regular exercise, such as reduced risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure levels, decreased stress and anxiety levels and many more. Walking or running on the treadmill is an excellent form of exercise and one that is often preferred by many. If you’re tempted to start running, or you’re a big fan of pounding the pavements (or treadmill conveyor belt), we’ve got the blog for you. Keep reading to hear from the fitness experts at FORM on the benefits of treadmill running.

Exercise is key

Everyone has their own preference for exercise. While some people like going to the gym and spending their time smashing the weights, others can prefer yoga and pilates as alternative forms of exercise. When it comes to exercise, often running is a preferred activity by many. 

Running is an appealing exercise for many people as often people find it to be an easy way of hitting their daily target of 20-30 minutes of exercise. But let’s be honest. Sometimes the idea of heading to the gym, or even stepping outside, can be a challenge. So what are the benefits of treadmill running?

In this blog, we explore how a treadmill can help you stay consistent with your exercise routine.

So, what are the benefits of treadmill running?

No matter what your preference is, when it comes to running outdoors or treadmill running, neither exercise is wrong. There is no right or wrong way to run. All that matters is that you find the right exercise for you. 

Here at FORM, we love all things exercise related so we’ve taken the liberty of listing the benefits of treadmill running just for you:

  1. Treadmills are easy to use
  2. They are easy to store and easy to access
  3. Improve your heart health
  4. Help you to lose weight faster
  5. Allows for consistent workouts.

1. Easy to use

As far as exercise equipment goes, treadmills are one of the easiest to use. As treadmills can be adjusted to your required speed and incline, a treadmill can easily meet each person’s specific needs and requirements.

2. They are easy to store and easy to access

If you are interested in building your own home gym, you’ll probably be looking to have a dedicated space in your home. Luckily, many treadmills are actually designed to fold up and can be easily moved around your home. If you don’t have enough space for a home gym, by purchasing a fold up treadmill, you can store it away in a cupboard between workouts.

Alternatively, you can find treadmills in a variety of gyms all over the UK, meaning you can easily access a treadmill from wherever you are.

3. Improve your heart health

A benefit of treadmill running is the improvements for your heart health. Everytime you dedicate some minutes to working out on the treadmill, you are strengthening your heart rate.

4. Help you to lose weight faster

Perhaps one of the most obvious, and often expected, benefits of treadmill running is that it helps you to lose weight. On average, running for just 20 minutes at 10 km/h will burn 229 calories.

We find that if you mix your workout sessions with a healthy & nutritious diet, you’ll reach your weight loss goals in absolutely no time.

5. Allows for consistent workouts

If you’re looking for an easy way to stay consistent with your workouts, treadmills are a really great way of doing this. Even if it is just 30 minutes of cardio twice a week, you can reap the benefits of treadmill running all year round.
