Walking on a Treadmill vs Walking on the Ground

I’m often asked about the treadmill as a means of cardiovascular exercise. Usually the conversation goes a little something like this:

Client – “I plan on coming to the gym 3 times a week and was thinking of coming in to use the treadmill on my off days.”

Me – “That sounds like a great plan you have laid out for yourself. However, can I suggest perhaps going for a walk instead of using the treadmill.”

Client – “Why? Isn’t it the same thing?” Well……. that question is answered in this weeks video. In the video I discuss the difference between walking on a treadmill and walking on the ground and which one you may want to consider when deciding how to get your cardiovascular exercise.

Enjoy!
