Have you ever wondered what is the purest and noblest sport discipline? The ancient Greeks would have been very clear on this - it's running! No wonder there has been a total running boom, especially in recent years. In the centres of major cities, traffic stops during the warm months just so people can run past beautiful sights, big companies and political candidates organise joint runs with their fans, and we can't count the number of times we've seen one of our friends bragging about their performance on social media.

    It's no wonder, as running is extremely good for the body. It's one of the most natural forms of exercise and that's why it's also one of the most beneficial ways to shed excess pounds or warm up before working out. In addition to losing weight, the physical benefits of running include slowing down the aging process, improving sleep and immunity to disease, increasing energy levels, sex drive and ability to concentrate. It also protects against osteoporosis and reduces blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the incidence of coronary heart disease. In addition to this, there are all the positive effects on the human psyche - causing a better perception of self and increased self-esteem, more intense feelings of happiness, reduced tension and aggression, and an increased ability to cope with stress, depression and anxiety. 

    For all of these reasons, it is clear that running should be added by all athletes to their training. That's why in our range of exercise machines you'll also find treadmills and treadmill walkers, which will add the ability to get the most natural exercise in your gym without having to interrupt your workout for a run in the woods or on a running oval.

    An increasingly popular variant of treadmills is the so-called non-motorised treadmills. On these, you don't set the speed you want to run at using a control panel, but you supply all the impetus to get the belt moving yourself by the tilt of your body and the frequency and length of your steps. Another great advantage of this type of belt is that you can use it as both a treadmill and a walking belt, giving you many options for how to use it in your workout. Walking on a treadmill may sound like a piece of cake, but trust us - when you walk to the beat to fast music and set your incline to 30 degrees, you'll be sweating like you're running a marathon.

    If you want to get the best quality option available on the market for your gym, we've got just what you're looking for. The StrongMill treadmill moves virtually frictionlessly on ball bearings thanks to 60 contoured aluminum slats. To get moving, it's not enough to just bounce upwards like a traditional treadmill, you have to actively bounce and tilt your torso. This means that you are not only training your physique, but also strengthening muscles all over your body.

    You will only find the best treadmills and walking belts at Stronggear.
