Working out at home? Check out these holiday season deals on treadmills

Treadmills are by far the most popular gym equipment for cardio workouts. Good quality treadmills used to be pricey, to the point that not many people could afford to buy one for home use. Now, however, you’ll find treadmills built for home use that are packed with features. Today the average person can add a treadmill to their home gym without breaking the bank.

During this holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Years Day, most people get together for many occasions that involve eating and drinking more than any other time of year. Incessant seasonal holiday festivities can bring about extra pounds, and an excellent way to combat extra poundage is with regular cardio workouts. Purchasing a treadmill for home use is a great way to get in those much-needed cardio sessions.

Walking or running on a treadmill puts less stress on the body than walking or running on a flat surface outdoors. Every time you take a step while running or walking outside on the pavement, concrete, or dirt, your legs take on a lot of impact. This impact can eventually lead to ankle, knee, and even back problems. The softer surface of a treadmill helps reduce this impact and is thus much easier on your joints and bones.

Treadmills also allow you to monitor your heart rate and blood pressure, which makes them safer for people suffering from those issues. In fact, treadmills are used to diagnose cardiac problems because the body may not show symptoms until it is put under stress. Regular aerobic exercise such as running on a treadmill also improves blood circulation and helps lower blood pressure.

Treadmills are also an ideal way to control insulin levels and can be extremely beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes. Because regular cardio exercise decreases blood sugar levels, Type 2 diabetics often can benefit from a regimen of daily treadmill workouts.

Many treadmills available today feature LED screens that display all sorts of valuable information. You can track your speed, distance, calories burned, incline, and more. Many of them also have built-in heart rate monitors. All of this data allows you to track your progress and set workout goals for yourself. Many treadmill models are easy to fold up to save space. Most newer treadmills also have quiet motors, so you won’t disrupt your household while running.

We will continue to monitor treadmill deals throughout the holiday season and beyond. We update this selection multiple times each month, so check back regularly to see the latest treadmill deals.
