Voted the best treadmill for weight loss by a leading group of consumer reviews, the TR4000i folding treadmill is the perfect treadmill to help you achieve your fitness and health goals; whether you're a runner, walker or anything in between. Unlike most treadmills in its class, the TR4000i includes 17 preset workouts specifically designed for weight management, healthy living and sports workouts. In addition, the TR4000i offers two MyZone heart rate control programs and two customizable programs. With the MyZone constant program you keep your heart rate at a constant level during your training. The treadmill automatically adjusts the incline level and speed to keep you on track for an effective treadmill weight loss program.
1. Change your routine
Of course, we all have that go-to work out that we always do because it fits well into our comfort zones and we know we can achieve it without putting in too much effort. The only problem is that over time you will burn fewer calories as your body adjusts to the workout and your muscles become more efficient. That's why you want to make sure you're constantly changing your treadmill workouts.
Using the TR4000i's 17 preset workouts (5 weight loss programs, 5 healthy living programs, 7 exercise programs), MyZone heart rate programs and customizable programs, changing your exercise routine becomes a walk in the park.
2. Increase the slope
Increasing the incline level of your treadmill not only improves your glutes and legs, improves endurance and helps increase walking speed, but it also burns a higher percentage of calories than walking on a flat surface. However, you should make sure to gradually add more and more incline to your treadmill exercises and start with walking instead of running if you are not used to exercising regularly.
The best weight loss treadmill, the TR4000i, gives you 15 incline levels and a speed range of 0.5 to 12 MPH, allowing you to work only as hard as you want and what you're ready for.
3. Don't overdo it
We can say that many of us tend to go a little overboard with exercise intensity when we first embark on a new exercise program. At least I do. It's a new, fun challenge that you are ready for. That is until excessive muscle pain and exhaustion rears its head. The first signs that you are exercising too much. If you're not one of those people who can carry this feeling through, you definitely want to make sure you start your new exercise routine slowly. You may even need to step back and re-evaluate your new exercise routine. And as a rule of thumb, high-intensity workouts should be done two to three times a week and moderate-intensity workouts three to five times a week. Starting slow is also a good way to make sure you don't burn out too quickly and never reach those weight loss goals.
4. Set realistic goals
The perfect goal is set when the ambition is practically achieved. Setting small, attainable goals is a great way to help you progress towards your long-term goal. You first want to determine what you ultimately want to achieve and divide this into achievable sub-goals. For example; three, six and twelve month phases. If you ultimately want to lose 20 pounds (your long-term goal), try to lose 1-2 pounds per week (short-term goal) for the first three months to reach 10 pounds (medium-term goal). Don't be afraid to celebrate smaller short-term successes! They are the foundation on which greater achievements are created.
People are very forgetful and changing old habits is difficult. Once you have identified your individual goals, write them down! Together with your previously put together motivations, this is incredibly helpful in moving you forward. Place them on a piece of paper next to your bathroom mirror. Whatever happens, make sure they are there. Your goals are more effective that way than if they are just thoughts.
5. Prepare for Success
It's hard enough to commit to change as it is. Before you start, you need to prepare for success. Maneuver your time and resources carefully to achieve your new goal. If you know you will be exercising in the evening, prepare throughout the day to free up your schedule by the time you want to start. If you enjoy being outside, don't lock yourself up in a dark gym. Give yourself a workout playlist of your favorite songs.
If you keep this list in mind in combination with a healthy diet and using the best treadmill for weight loss, there's no way you won't be able to achieve your weight loss goal.
