Landice TreadmillWhether you use a treadmill to walk, jog or sprint, it can help you burn calories, build muscle and improve your endurance. The beneficial effects on your health abound.

But, you should start with a solid foundation first. If you’re not used to running, begin by walking briskly on the treadmill. The muscles utilized will include your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, calf muscles and even your abs.

According to running experts, you should be able to run 30 minutes without stopping after training for eight weeks. Once that goal is accomplished, you can start varying your speed and incline.

Treadmills today come in a wide variety of sizes, styles and prices. Features include a spacious running area, large touchscreens, many challenging yet doable programs and state-of-the-art technology. The pros at Fitness HQ will help you choose the perfect piece of equipment for your needs.
