Reason # 2 to Invest in a Treadmill: 24 Hour Access
By J. Maki
The more self-sufficient you can be and the less dependent on external factors, the better. While public gyms are excellent spaces for fitness, in addition to socializing with peers, there are also constraints presented in terms of access, availability, and convenience. Many gyms have time limits on treadmills and do not permit you to use it beyond a certain time period. And in some cases, you may have to wait for for your turn, which if you have a busy schedule, is not helpful.
Investing in your own treadmill eliminates all of these problems, as it empowers you to get your workout in at any time of day. A night owl? No problem, you can workout without waiting in line at any time of the night you’d like. Early riser? Perfect. If you’re like me and you get up at 4:00am to workout, the treadmill is your best friend.
With the many demands of life, being able to get your walk or run in on the treadmill at your own convenience is invaluable, as it can free you up to focus more on your family, career, side hustle, or whatever it is that is a priority to you. In a sneaky way, a treadmill is truly a productivity hack, as it will add time back into your day for those things that are most important to you.
Invest in yourself. Invest in your health. Buy a treadmill!
