Choose a Treadmill Workout
that will benefit your Health
Treadmill workout routines are available that provide different fitness goals. Workout exercises depend on factors like your fitness level, your goal and what you enjoy.
Continuous activity is the most common type of a treadmill routine. It involves walking, jogging or running at various pace levels for 30-60 minutes.
An important goal of any exercise routine is to improve your cardiovascular system. To do this, you need to exercise at a level that will maintain your target heart rate.
Many treadmills come with a built in heart rate monitor. If you don't have a built in monitor, you should buy one. A good heart rate monitor will cost about $65.
