I cant get to the gym for two days so I have to use my tredmil. Is that a good workout for an hour or should I just say forget it?

  • A treadmill is a FABULOUS alternative! You can get a great aerobic, low impact (unless you run/jog) workout which will burn PLENTY of calories!!! If you have small hand held dumbbells, incorporate them while walking--or use two bottled waters as "weights!"

    We have a treadmill and vertical climber in our basement, which I use EVERYDAY! Increase the speed, elevation and vary the intervals..fast slow, fast to make it a really good workout. Put on a favorite music CD or TV show that gets you "pumped up" to make the time go by faster!
