How to Exercise with a Treadmill?

How to correctly exercise with a treadmill

  • The first important requirement is that you have a properly functioning treadmill!
  • It is important to fully familiarize yourself with the treadmill functions – especially the safety key!
  • Place the treadmill per the manufacturer’s recommendations to prevent safety risks
  • Never use the treadmill while barefoot or wearing unsuitable footwear (heels, flip-flops, etc.)

Exercise tips

  • It is recommended to do short warm-up and stretching exercises before you start training
  • You can select one of the pre-set programmes
  • It is recommended to start the exercise with a lower resistance setting
  • After your muscles warm up, you can adjust to higher resistance level
  • At the end of the training, adjust the resistance to a lower setting again to relax your muscles
  • The duration of the exercise is important to the desired effect – you start burning fats (aerobic muscle metabolism) after 20-40 of exercising
  • FIT – F = exercise frequency 3-5 times a week, I = exercise intensity 60-90% of maximum heart rate frequency, T = duration of the exercise 20-60 min
  • After the training, it is recommended to do a few cool-down exercises to calm your heart rate and relax your muscles
