Running is an age old exercise. People have been running ever since man learned how to walk. Sure, back then, they weren’t running to loose weight or to stay in shape, but most likely running away or after someone 🙂
Enjoying the fresh air outdoors is lovely. Going for a run in the park or in a forest is an amazing way to spend some time working out whilst taking in nature.
The only problem with running outside is the fact that, unless you’re wearing appropriate footwear, the impact of every step can be damaging.
Treadmills, on the other hand, do not pose the same problem. Treadmills are build to take this into consideration. When running using one of these machines, they actually take the impact away from your joints. They actually have a bit of “bounce” to it.
While working out indoors may not be ideal for the nature lovers, if you suffer from weak joints, this may be your only option.
Of course, there are then those of us who do not like going to the gym. We also have good news for them too! Treadmills are now affordable! Sure, they used to cost an arm and a leg way back when, but now you can pick one up for a few hundred!
When shopping for one, please be sure and read the treadmill reviews – as some are known to be more problematic than others. Which pretty much goes for anything in life.
Reading reviews gives you an insight into what the product is actually like once the customer has bought it and has used it. This actually takes the risk of buying away from you, so you can reap the benefits!
