A treadmill workout is very friendly to your joints

Do you like jogging and/or running but you're not very keen on sore or tight muscles, tendons, joints and nasty injuries? The treadmill comes to the rescue. A treadmill workout is very smooth and effective without straining your joints. That's because a treadmill has a flat and soft non-slip running surface with good cushioning, which ensures shocks are absorbed while walking, jogging or running. This makes your treadmill workout less straining for your body. The Lifespan treadmills are equipped with eight shock absorbers, protecting your joints from the impact of hard shocks while walking, jogging or running.

Treadmills can be used in physiotherapy and rehabilitation training

Because the impact on your joints being very low, a treadmill workout is very suitable for use in physiotherapy and rehabilitation. If you have to recover from a nasty injury you best use a treadmill to slowly build your workout and train and strengthening your muscles. That way you'll be up and running in no time.

During your treadmill workout you train and strengthen a variety of muscles

Treadmill workouts effectively pump up your muscles. Because you're constantly contracting your calf muscles, thigh muscles, glutes and your back muscles you effectively train and strengthen these muscles. Another nice feature of a treadmill to train your muscles with is the possible to set the angle of inclination. If you jog or run with a high angle of inclination you'll burn a lot of calories and lose weight and put your muscles to some serious training. The TR1200iT has an angle of inclination of no less than 15%. You do the math!

A treadmill workout any way you like

Get in complete control of your treadmill workout. You can use the console to set your favorite training programme, the angle of inclination (incline/decline*available with some treadmills) and the desired speed. During your workout the console keeps you up to date about your workout time, distance covered, speed, angle of inclination, burned calories and your heart rate. Just check the display. This way you can go for a goal-oriented training and keep motivated. The LifeSpan Treadmills TR2000iT, TR3000iT, TR4000iT, TR5500iT, TR6000i and the TR8000i are fitted with Bluetooth. This comes in handy because it allows you to connect your treadmill to the Liftspan app and helps you to easily and quickly view your training results in the app.

Having your own treadmill at home is very comfortable and cozy

Having your own treadmill saves you lots of time because you don't have to go to the gym anymore. When your long and busy day has finally ended you don't have to go out anymore to face every kind of weather to go to the gym. You're also not bound by fixed times set by the gym to be able to use the treadmill and you don't have to worry the treadmill is going to be occupied by other users. Although, chances are a member of your family gets hooked on the treadmill and won't get off anymore. But luckily there's also a solution to this. If the treadmill is going to be used by one or more family members you best make clear agreeements about how it's going to be used. A big plus about a treadmill at home is that you can place it anywhere you like. If you've got the space you can place it in your living room to work out and have quality time with your family simultaneously or watch some TV. Your workout time will be over before you know it.

Treadmill workouts are a lot safer than walking, jogging or running outdoors

Working out on a treadmill is much safer than walking, jogging or running outdoors because you're not bothered by traffic, children playing, stray animals and obstacles you can trip over. An indoor treadmill workout decreases the risk of nasty injuries considerably. While walking, jogging or running outdoors it's nice to have some music to keep you motivated. You guessed it this increases the risk of dangerous situations. Not a problem with a treadmill workout at home. You can listen to music undisturbed and give your training an extra boost.

Buying your own treadmill ensures you get a treadmill that really suits your needs

Gyms usually do have standard treadmill models. These are fine in themselves, but if you buy your own treadmill you can make your training just that little bit more personal and fun. For example, you can opt for a treadmill with a Bluetooth interface or one with speakers, so you can listen to your favorite music while you're training. You won't find these features on treadmills at a gym. When purchasing your own treadmill, you can also look out for things like shock absorption, maximum speed and angle of inclination. These are important for a joint-friendly and effective training. We have a product range with different types of treadmills so you'll definitely find your dreamed of treadmill.

There's no stopping your treadmill workout

Whether it's raining cats and dogs, scorching hot or freezing cold outside or dark, nothing of this matters if you have your own treadmill at home. You can keep exercising indoors till you drop and retain your level of training.

No prying eyes while you're training

With your own treadmill at home there are no prying eyes watching your every move. You can train without being disturbed and without the fear of people commenting about your training or your level of training. You'll also not be demotivated by experienced speedy runners with higher-ish levels of training. You can train in the comfort of your own home and build your level of training effectively at your own pace.

A treadmill workout reduces stress to your muscles

Walking, jogging or running are natural human movements. It ensures a correct body posture, more stamina, optimizes your breathing and reduces tension to various muscles in your neck, shoulders and back. This makes treadmill workouts a very effective way of exercising.
