Transition Your Walking Workouts to the Treadmill

The treadmill is a great walking workout option when bad weather prevents you from heading outdoors.

Some people might call the treadmill the “dreadmill,” but it doesn’t have to be a monotonous slog. Start by cueing up your favorite workout playlist, trying out the new podcast all your friends have been recommending or starting a new Netflix show from your queue and get walking.

And there’s good news for anyone debating between the treadmill and walking outside: A May 2019 review published in Sports Medicine found that there’s not much difference between the two. In both cases, exercisers’ perceived effort and oxygen intake (an indicator of how hard they were working) were about the same.

The treadmill really isn’t bad. I listen to Motion Traxx when I’m on the treadmill or walking. Follow me for more tips. If you’re looking for help and you’re ready to get started, contact me or click on my link for your free consultation.
