FreeMotion Treadmills have the proprietary Reflex cushioning, which softens impact and allows easing into running while facilitating running longer. HIIT-friendly controls will enable you to integrate your treadmill into your interval training. FreeMotion Fitness also features 1-STEP Controls and HD Interactive Touch Displays.What is HIIT and why is it essential?
HIIT is High-Intensity Interval Training. It is hard to maintain a maximum energy burn for long periods because of how the human body works. HIIT rotates the person from high-intensity to low-intensity exercises. The high-intensity workouts get the body’s metabolism and fat-burning going. The low-intensity workouts give the person time to transition between the more demanding activities. High-intensity Interval Training is intended to be a way to exercise more efficiently over long periods.What areas of the body does a treadmill work?
As you walk, run, or jog, you will be working out your thighs, hips and buttocks, calves, core, and upper body. Walking and running provide a cardio workout for the body, allowing you to workout more naturally while still being in your home or gym. While the legs and hips seem like logical target zones, the core is just as important. The core helps balance and stability, which can help make other activities more attainable.Can you use a treadmill for only low-impact exercises?
Walking is a low-impact exercise. You can adjust the resistance of the belt to your tolerance levels. Freemotion Fitness equipment also features the rebound and cushion of the Reflex system, which helps to lower the impact of your steps. While it is aimed at running, it can help make walking more comfortable as well.How much power should your home treadmill have?
The answer will depend on your workout and your weight. If you run, it will take more energy than if you walk, for instance. Your treadmill should have a CHP, continuous horsepower, motor. For a person weighing up to 200 pounds, walking would require about 2.0 CHP, jogging about 2.5 CHP, and running 3.0 CHP. You do not want to overtax your engine, so choose your equipment to match the activity you will be doing.What are the different features of FreeMotion Fitness Treadmills?
