More and more people are starting exercise programs every day.  It’s not hard to understand why.

Scientists and doctors everywhere have been pounding it into our heads for years that we need to get in physical shape in order to enjoy optimum health.  Just eating right is not enough anymore.

We need physical activity to move our bodies into a state of perfect well-being.

However, getting in enough exercise every day is easier said that done. We all lead busy lives, and it’s not always practical or possible to work in half an hour a day–even in increments–of exercise to keep our bodies healthy.[ReviewAZON asin=”B0000U1OCI” display=”inlinepost”]

This is especially true if exercising means going to the gym. With work and family to attend to, who has time for that?

Yet, that’s the wrong way to look at exercise. It’s not time you take away from your family. It’s an investment in future time with your family that will result from the longer life good physical fitness will provide.

So how can you work a workout into your busy schedule? The answer is easy–get a treadmill to use at home.

A treadmill can be your best friend when it comes to getting in shape and feeling good. Using it regularly can even help you lose weight, as long as you’re eating sensibly.

Treadmill exercise is perfect because it combines endurance training with strengthening exercises. You can always strengthen your legs on a treadmill, but some models even have resistance handles you can push to strengthen your arms. This way, you can combine cardiovascular fitness and weight training, without having to take time to do each separately.

With a treadmill at home, you can always walk, no matter what the weather is like outside. You can use it any time of the day or night, whenever you feel like it. You can even work in little min-workouts throughout the day to reach the total of half an hour that doctors suggest.

And with a treadmill at home, you can read, listen to music, watch your kids, or even watch TV while working out so you don’t get bored. With so many things to entertain you while you walk, it may not even seem like exercise at all!
