Have you ever wondered what is the purest and noblest sport discipline? The ancient Greeks would have a clear answer for you - it's running! No wonder there has been a total boom of running, especially in recent years. During the warm months, traffic often comes to a standstill in major city centers just so people can run past beautiful monuments and 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 beneficial for the body. It's one of the most natural forms of exercise and that's why it's also one of the most healthy 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, running has many 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 the above reasons, it is clear that ideally all athletes should include running in their training. That's why treadmills are an important part of our assortment. They expand your gym experience with the possibility of engaging in the most natural movement, without having to interrupt your workout for a run in the woods or on a running track.
An increasingly popular variant of treadmills is the so-called non-motorized treadmill. On these, you don't set your running speed using a control panel, but you supply all the impetus to set the belt in motion 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 for running and walking, giving you many options for how to incorporate it into your workout. Walking on a treadmill may sound like a piece of cake, but trust us - walking to the beat of your favorite fast music and setting your incline to 30 degrees will make you feel like you're running a marathon.
If you want to get the highest quality option available for your gym, we've got just what you're looking for. Thanks to 60 profiled aluminum lamellae, the StrongMill treadmill moves on its ball bearings with virtually no friction. To get it moving, it's not enough to just start moving like on a classic treadmill, you have to actively run and tilt your torso at the same time. This means that you are not only training your endurance, but also strengthening muscles all over your body.
At Stronggear, you will find only the highest quality treadmills for running and walking!
