What are the benefits of using a treadmill?
There are multiple benefits in using a running treadmill; the main benefit being that it is exercise, and a step toward a healthier lifestyle. Running/walking is a huge stress reducer; releasing endorphins into the bloodstream and producing a natural high making you feel good. Running on a treadmill also reduces impact on joints compared to running on hard surfaces like pavement or road surfaces. It increases energy levels, lung capacity, bone density, and calorie burn (you will burn more calories on a treadmill than an exercise bike or rowing machine).
