Outdoor Fitness Preparedness – Treadmills…

I must confess at the very beginning that I was never quite fond of working out, and my brother was the one who convinced me that it was indeed beneficial for my health. However, I informed him at the very onset of his argument that I was not going to enroll in any of those neighborhood gyms. I thought this would be enough to dissuade him from trying to convince me any further but he persisted with me. He asked me to have a treadmill at my place because they are such wonderful pieces of fitness equipment. However, I live in a modest size apartment and a full-size treadmill will not have enough space in my living room. My brother had other plans and he presented me with a folding treadmill on my birthday, which has had a huge impact on my fitness and lifestyle since then.

Treadmill vs Running OutsideThe folding treadmill has been simply great for my living room because it has only a very limited amount of free space. Therefore, I did not intend to block that space with bulky fitness equipment all around the week. However, my treadmill poses no such problems for me. Being folding, the treadmill can collapse into a much smaller form when not in use. I usually train on my treadmill for around an hour in the morning and that too for six days a week. Thus, I can take out the treadmill and run on it for an hour before folding it back to its original form. My portable treadmill is extremely lightweight which makes it possible for me to carry it around the room and store it under the bed when not in use. This way I am able to save a lot of space in my small apartment, which the treadmill would otherwise have had eaten up.

Even though the folding treadmill is extremely light in weight, I can perform all the usual exercises that people perform on these machines. My treadmill has most of the features that are common in the treadmills these days. Thus, I can monitor my heart rate while I run on the track and the distance that I have covered as well. It also shows the estimated calories that I manage to burn in a single workout. Keeping my treadmill folded away under the bed also helps me in preventing my children from playing the jogging track. It also helps me in averting any injuries and other such mishaps concerning my children. The folding treadmill has been a dear friend to me, which has helped me to benefit my health from training on it without having to clutter my already packed apartment. I recommend folding treadmills to everyone facing a space constraint at their homes.
