Treadmills Beat the Heat and More
By Bonnie Pfiester

Treadmills Beat the Heat and More

As soon as you step out of the house, heat and humidity engulfs you. Even late risers are getting up earlier to run or walk their dog to beat the heat - or worse, they are skipping their morning exercise altogether.

When it comes to the heat, I even begin to look for excuses to miss my runs. So, one day I decided to run with Steve on the treadmill. I couldn't believe how good I felt. I was running almost effortlessly. I didn't realize how much the heat itself was wearing me out.

On top of the temperature, I seemed to have an extra bounce in my step. As much as I exercise outside, I forgot how it feels to run or walk on a treadmill. Treadmills are much easier on your body. The running deck acts as a cushion, absorbing much of the impact that can be so taxing on the joints over time. Injuries are also less common for treadmill users as there are no roots or uneven pavement to trip over.

Besides the treadmill being more comfortable, it acts like a personal trainer in many ways. When you walk outside, you set your own pace. The treadmill can set the pace for you. The constant speed challenges you to stay consistentinstead of slowing down when you get tired.

Another benefit to using a treadmill isit helps hold you accountable. Most treadmills have a built-in heart rate monitor and a graph showing you where your heart rate should be for the most effective workout. If your heart rate is too low, you know you need to increase your intensity or speed. This is also beneficial for people concerned about getting their heart rate too high.

In addition, a treadmillgives you one thing you can't get in Vero Beach - hills. Although many people would consider the Barber Bridge a pretty good hill, a treadmill can createundulating terrain no matter where you are. Most treadmills even offer a variety of programs that can take you up various inclines and change your pace for interval training.

Lastly, treadmills offer friendsa way to workout side by side, despite their fitness level. While one person is jogging, another person can be walking without being left behind. This is comforting to those who doubt their ability to keep up with the group. Treadmills allow for each person to be equally challenged while spending quality time with close friends.
