Watch TV while running on a treadmill to stay entertained.

Constantly running on a treadmill can sometimes bore you to death. However, this situation is something that you can easily put a remedy to. First, you can have more than one type of exercise routine for you to keep your level of excitement up. Second, you can put “fun” into your exercise by incorporating different forms of media into your routine.

Varied Routines for Your Exercise

1.) If you intend to use your treadmill on a regular basis, then you are recommended to use varied running routines. Choose options which you have never tried before but make sure that you would be able run through the end of the obstacle.

2.) Alternate cardio workout and muscle strength workout. For cardio training, choose the highest level of speed that you can sustain and put the level of your treadmill’s inclination to 0. For muscle strength training, fully inclined your treadmill and choose a slower speed.

3.) Increase your goals as time goes by. Be determined in losing more calories and in walking or running at greater lengths. You also have the option to exercise for a longer period of time if your stamina has already greatly improved.

4.) If you are working out on a gym, then conduct a healthy competition with your gym partner.

Incorporating Media or Games into Your Exercise

1.) Choose a song that has a fast tempo. Play it while you run on a treadmill for you to be encouraged to run or jog faster in accordance to the beat of the song. You can either play it on loud stereo or use your mp3 player with headphones, if you want to keep your choice of music all to yourself.

Conduct games during your workout sessions. This method is ideal to be used only if you are doing your exercise in a gym. Counting and guessing games would surely keep you entertained as you run on a treadmill.

2.) If your treadmill has a tray which can hold a magazine or a book as you do your exercise, then use it. You also have the option to use a tablet or digital e-reader instead for you to efficiently read those materials.

3.) Put your television in front of your treadmill for you to watch your favorite shows or movies as you work on losing more weight.

4.) Listen to educational or comedy audio or even to your favorite talk show on the radio for you to have a vibrant mood as you run on a treadmill.

5.) Listen to your favorite podcasts.
