The task of putting together a home gym for yourself can be quite confusing, especially when you don’t know where to start. A quick Google search will show you that depending on the type of fitness goals you want to achieve; the must-haves and go-to pieces of equipment may vary.
Thankfully, the essentials of basic physical fitness are fundamentally the same. One of these fundamental exercises that you always need in your workouts is a form of cardio.
And what better cardio workout is there than the good ol’ jog?
In less complicated times, going out for a quick run was one of the most convenient ways to get a good workout in. All you needed was a good pair of running shoes and a run route.
Due to the global pandemic going out for jog now also means that you’ll be increasing the risk of exposure from the virus.
But thankfully, an alternative tool for running has always been available in the form of treadmills.
Here are some of the many reasons why the treadmill is an essential piece of equipment for your home gym!
Accessible and Safe
One reason why you should get a treadmill for your home gym is because it’s safer now than it ever was. You don’t have to go anywhere to run on it. You don’t need to go to the gym to exercise and you don’t have to run on the road either.
Running on a treadmill is much safer than running outdoors. You reduce the risk of being hit by cars, running into other pedestrians, and while running on the sidewalk or road, something which is a pretty big problem during the night.
Owning a treadmill brings a different level of convenience for indoor fitness because of its accessibility. You can easily work out at any time of the day.
Impact Protection and Shock Absorption
Another big reason why owning your own treadmill is a plus is because of its impact protection and shock absorption.
Unlike asphalt, trails, and other outdoor surfaces, most treadmills nowadays come with a soft surface that you can run on. This means that the impact made with every step is lessened, and it makes running a lot less stressful on your ankles, knees, legs, and feet.
