Running on a treadmill can assist in weight loss by burning those extra calories that would otherwise be stored as body fat. The average person jogging at 10kph (6mph) could burn around 400 extra calories (that's 4 packets of Tayto…) and can boost that by a further 20% if adjusting the deck to run on an incline.
Of course, you can put on your trainers and hit the streets, but we all know that enthusiasm can start to dwindle on those cold winter nights, or if it's raining outside.
Running on hard concrete can also seriously impact your joints over time - unlike our range of electronic home treadmills, all of which have sprung running decks with top models also featuring additional cushioning.
Running, jogging or walking on a predictable surface such as a motorised running deck also reduces the risk of tripping on an otherwise uneven road surface, leaving you with less time worrying about injury and more time focusing on improving health, fitness and muscle tone.
