While there is definitely a lot more being done to highlight the importance of a balanced diet and exercise, obesity is still a public concern that doesn’t seem to really be getting much improvement. According to the Dumbarton Reporter newspaper, obesity rates in primary aged children have risen by 22% over the past couple of years. This does not bode well for the future, and the same has been seen in adults. While there are gyms opening up around Dumbarton, not everyone can or wants to go. Fitness Takeaway offer treadmill hires throughout Dumbarton so people can take control of their own health.
Treadmills are a great way of exercising and can do wonders for your cardiovascular health. With Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) being one of the main causes of death within the UK, anything that can help in that regard is highly desirable. If you’re overweight or obese, you are more at risk of CVD than those who are at a desirable weight. Running on a treadmill is a form of aerobic exercise and this requires your heart to quickly pump oxygenated blood around the body, giving your heart muscle a workout.
While running, in general, is pretty great exercise, you get a number of added benefits by using a treadmill. For one, with some of the better treadmills available, you are able to monitor your progress. You’ll be able to track your heart rate throughout your run and determine whether you need to lower the speed or increase the speed to make your workout more effective. You can make use of preset workout programs, with variances in incline and speed that will make your workout more challenging and more worthwhile. At the very least, this will make the twenty minutes you spend on the treadmill a lot more entertaining than just running at a steady 8 km/h.
