Since I entered my 30’s I noticed that I have been gaining wait. The bulge in my belly and the bigger size of my arms have become more noticeable. I started to feel like I’m not good looking anymore and that I don’t have any authority to command at my work. Even if I have a higher position in the office, I don’t feel that confident when talking to my co-workers even if I used to do such task before. Though I don’t really look unpleasant, having a not so sexy body has apparently hugely affected my self-confidence and self-esteem. Luckily, I didn’t get depressed and let the situation take over me. I asked some of my close friends about the different ways that are effective in helping people lose weight. One of my best friends told me that using a treadmill to lose weight is one of the effective and healthy ways to lose significant amount of weight.
When I also started having busy work schedules, I also forgot to follow a regular exercise schedule. I also tend to resort to instant and convenient foods such as cup noodles and burgers several times in a week. I surmised that these are the main reasons why I weigh heavier and look bigger now. So, as part of a concrete way to shed off pounds, I searched the web to look for the best treadmill available today. After a few taps and clicks, I was directed to numerous links about the best treadmills. I am happy that there are now factors that can be considered when determining which brands are truly effective and are of high quality. One of the factors I considered are the testimonials and customer reviews. One of the links I stumbled upon is the sole f85 treadmill review by the Health Constitution. I was satisfied when I learned that there are several brands of treadmill that can really help users get back in shape while losing weight on a weekly basis.
After having enough information about the different brands of treadmill that I can consider, I finally decided to choose one and purchased the item immediately. I got the unit within 48 hours and was happy with the look and overall design. While waiting for the arrival of the delivery, I also did some research about the proper ways to use the weight loss equipment. I was surprised that there are a lot of mistakes that many people do when using the treadmill. If I haven’t read the article I might also be doing the said mistakes. The mistakes include wearing of the wrong shoes, slapping the feet down, looking at the feet, striding too long, arms are not steady and all over the place, sticking to one routine, holding the bars, using the autopilot, overdoing the exercise, and lunching forward. Before I knew about the mistakes, I thought that the longer you use the treadmill each session gives you a higher chance of losing weight. I was wrong and I actually felt happy too because it means that I don’t have to spend long hours on the treadmill just to lose weight.
I learned that when there is elevated resting heart rate, little aches and pains, and excess muscle soreness, the person is overtraining and must stop especially when the signs are getting worse. When overtraining happens, there must be a re-evaluation of the workout program. I took note of the advice that high-intensity workouts are only good and effective if done two to three times each week. Then, moderate exercises are good if done three to five times each week. Working out the body too much will have a negative side effect later on. So, the key to optimize the benefits of every exercise is to just do it with the right amount of time. With 45-minute treadmill every day, one can lose 1 to 2 pounds every week. The exact amount depends on the diet of the person. So, if you regularly do treadmill in moderation and follow a healthy diet, then you will be able to lose up to 2 pounds each week.
After learning most of the important information about treadmill exercise, I planned my schedule and fixed to do treadmill 5 days a week for 45 minutes each session. It has been 6 weeks since I started the exercise. During the first three weeks, I didn’t change my diet. I noticed that the weight I lose is around 0.9 to 1 pound every week. Because I really wanted to speed up the process of losing weight, I also decided to have a change in my diet. I started to get rid of processed foods and chose to always consume organic food. After having a significant change in my diet, I noticed that I started losing around 1.5 to 1.7 pounds every week. With the very positive results, I began to regain my well-shaped body and my level of confidence.
I asked other people whom I know are also doing treadmills. I noticed that those who does the exercise for two to three hours every day have lost a smaller amount of weight compared to what I have shed off. That confirmed that long hours of treadmill is not effective. This is why I stick to the 45-minute length of exercise every time I do treadmill.
With the inspiring results of treadmill exercise, I can say that I did a great decision of buying a treadmill unit.
