Treadmills

Treadmills are a mainstay of the home workout and for good reason. One of the simplest pieces of gym equipment to use, a treadmill allows you to get the blood pumping and your breath flowing by either walking, jogging, or running - whatever your preference. Folding treadmills are a popular choice for home workouts thanks to their easy storage. Find your perfect treadmill with Ryman!

Treadmills are a hugely popular choice for home workouts, thanks to their ease of use and low barrier to entry. Having a treadmill in your home can make it much easier to stick to a fitness regime - having ease of access plus no need to head to the gym or run outside in poor weather makes it much easier to commit to exercising consistently. 

Treadmills come in either motorised or non-motorised variants, and we’re pleased to offer both options. Motorised treadmills tend to be a little more expensive and will require a power source to function, whereas non-motorised treadmills can be easily packed up and transported anywhere. 

 

Why are treadmills good for you?

Using a treadmill regularly is a great way to get into a routine of consistent aerobic exercise, which can have a positive impact on both physical and mental health. Walking or running on a treadmill is a highly effective means of exercise, particularly if one of your fitness goals is to lose weight. 

A top tip if you’re looking to burn fat is to opt for a HIIT style workout - alternate between running on your treadmill for 30 seconds, then walking for 30 seconds, then back to running, and so forth. HIIT allows you to burn more calories in a shorter space of time, meaning you have more time to spend on other pursuits.

 

What treadmill incline should I use?

We recommend setting  your treadmill to an incline of 1-2% if you’d like the most realistic simulation for running outdoors. This mimics the experience of wind resistance and natural elevation that you would experience outside. For incorporating an element of HIIT to your treadmill workout, you can increase the incline to 3-4% at regular intervals before dropping down to 1-2% again. If you’d like to use your treadmill at an incline of 5% or more, your focus should be on power rather than speed, to engage your muscles and drive yourself “uphill”. 

 

What treadmill speed should I run at?

The short answer for beginners is, whatever speed you are most comfortable with. The goal is to build up a consistent habit of using your treadmill, so don’t try to run before you can walk. Varying the speed throughout your workout can help to keep things interesting and build in HIIT elements. For walking we recommend starting out at 3kph for a warm up/cool down, or 5kph for brisk walking to achieve moderate physical activity. For jogging, you should aim for around 6-7kph, and for running 7-8.5kph is most people’s sweet spot. However, it’s really down to personal preference. 

If you’re training with a specific goal in mind then you’ll need to work out what specific speed you need based on the distance you want to run. For example, if you’re aiming to complete a 5k in under half an hour, then you would need to run at around 10kph/6mph.
