Running (walking) on a treadmill is generally recommended for everyone. For those who have not exercised on treadmill yet, it is recommended to work out 3-4 times a week per 10 minutes of walking. Later, when the heart and lungs will be used to the effort you can run for 10 minutes, and the advanced can run for 20-30 minutes. If you want to speed up the burning of fat, combine exercise on treadmill with stationary bike, elliptical machine, weights, aerobic exercises and stretching exercises.
The treadmill takes up only a corner in your home, but has many benefits for your health. You will also avoid the crowds in the gym and you will work out anytime you want and that too in the comfort of your own home.
