Last Published on Jan 07, 2022 15:43 IST


Bring home a treadmill and start running or walking to say goodbye to pandemic-induced health woes. Many of them are foldable too, which is particularly good for those who have a space constraint at home.  

It has been more than a year now that the world has been plagued by the coronavirus pandemic. India has been battling this disease since early 2020. As work from home and study from home became a reality, what also became a reality was our collective lack of exercise. Walking and running for instance were just not possible. Low physical activity has then translated into a dip in health parameters, the most obvious being weight gain. This has a bearing on other health parameters such as blood pressure and heart diseases. 

Hence, the need of the hour is to invest in some equipment that allows us to do exercises at home. That too may be a challenge for many as many urban households struggle with space at home. However, if that is not a struggle for you and you came make some room then investing in a good treadmill is a good idea.

Walking and running are among the most basic workouts that give us maximum benefit. Walking ensures we stay away from heart diseases, improves blood circulation, brings up the heart rate, lowers blood pressure and strengthens the heart. Similarly, running helps build strong bones, strengthens muscles and improves cardiovascular fitness.
