The Pros of Treadmill Training

I keep this cutout close by in case I need even more motivation to get on the treadmill!

Now that we are less than a month away from the big day, I thought it would be a great time to talk about treadmill training! First off I have to admit, I am a huge wimp when it comes to the outdoor elements. If it is sprinkling outside, I am in the gym on a treadmill. As you can imagine that makes it a little tough to get the miles in when you live in NYC with our always-fickle weather. Since I have done a lot of my training thus far on a treadmill, I wanted to share with you the details of the one I chose to have in my home.

From the day I left The Biggest Loser Ranch I’ve done a lot of research on treadmills. I spent so many hours running on a treadmill there that I knew it would become a very important piece of equipment in my maintenance journey at home. After looking at what felt like hundreds of treadmills and reading thousands of reviews, I went with the NordicTrack C900 Pro. I really felt like NordicTrack had such a good track record with at home equipment.  And let’s face it, as much as I would love to have a commercial treadmill, they are just plain huge and extremely expensive. So I was extremely fortunate when I found out NordicTrack and Sears wanted to gift the C900 Pro to help me prepare for my first half-marathon. It now sits in a proud spot in my living room! Yes, that’s right it’s in my living room, right smack in the middle. I love watching people’s reaction when they come over! I figure you can’t ignore a machine like that when you see it every day. I’m also proud to say not only have I used it every day, but there has never been a single pair of clothing hung on it! Seeing is believing, so if you have a treadmill, keep it in eye’s view. Odds are you’ll definitely use it more.
