A Treadmill Won’t Let You Forget
By J. Maki
There is no question that a treadmill is an investment in your health and wellbeing, and for what you would spend for an iPhone or a new television, or even less, you can own a model that more than effectively will meet your needs for fitness. Sadly, many of us will choose passive entertainment and a sedentary lifestyle as opposed to making an active commitment to getting in shape by investing in a treadmill.
When you purchase a treadmill, you make a commitment to improving your life and your health. It will be there for you when you need it most.
If it is raining outside, you can avoid the rain and hop on your treadmill.
If it is snowing outside, you can avoid the snow and hop on your treadmill.
If it is freezing cold outside, you can avoid it and hop on your treadmill.
If it is hot, well, you get the picture.
Regardless of the weather, your treadmill destroys all of these excuses.
Taking it a step further, your treadmill will be a symbol to you of all of you are capable of accomplishing. The amount of time that you put into it walking or running on your machine will determine the ongoing outcomes that are your improved health and wellbeing. More importantly, your treadmill is a constant reminder of the commitment you made to your fitness and will help hold you accountable to your goals.
You don’t feel like working out? Your treadmill doesn’t care. It reminds you that you’ve made a significant monetary investment in it. That twinge of guilt will force you to put on your running shoes and get started.
If the purpose of your treadmill becomes misused and now looks more like a clothing rack at a retail store, you are reminded of your investment. Did you really just drop a bunch of cash to have an additional space to pile up your clothes?
Beautifully and powerfully, your treadmill will not let you forget.
As human beings, we all need reminders to stay focused and to pursue those things that are good for us. Sure our smart phones are great tools for communicating with others and they can be beneficial for our mental wellbeing. But I can promise you this, they will not lead to you getting into the best shape of your life.
A treadmill is a multipurpose tool. Most importantly, it provides us with the platform to exercise within the convenience and comfort of our own homes. But it is also like an alarm clock that you don’t have to set. Visually, it is there every day, and it represents the better life that is waiting for you if you just put in the work.
There is no better time than right now to invest in a treadmill that will help you accomplish your goals for fitness and health. Don’t waste any more time, and take the step today towards a better overall quality of life.
