Five Easy Steps to an Effective Treadmill Workout

Although many treadmill reviews make hopping onto a treadmill for half an hour after a focused aerobics or weightlifting session sound like a breeze, repeating the same workout day after day can cause even the most disciplined fitness enthusiast to lose interest in their workout. Likewise, people often lose sight of their fitness goals in places, like gyms, that encourage distraction.

Luckily, you can transform a throwaway treadmill routine into an effective workout, but it will take an honest look at your assets, including the treadmill and a willingness to embrace some change.

Use the Treadmill's Full Potential

The first step in creating a more effective workout is ensuring that you are fully utilizing all of the features of your treadmill. Simply turning on the device and setting the speed control isn't enough. Minimal knowledge reaps minimal results.

However, you can gain a better understanding of all the functions on treadmill by asking an instructor for tips or reading the owner's manual, which will likely add more depth to your workout. Applying this information--from the heart monitor to the incline to the pre-programmed workouts — can transform a treadmill from motion machine into a fitness tool.
