Have You Heard: An Uphill That's Worth the Battle

Have You Heard: An Uphill That's Worth the Battle

Treadmills are great for an indoor workout but if you run with the incline set at zero you are not burning as many calories as you would if you were running (for the same amount of time) outdoors. The reason for this is that a treadmill does not account for outside elements (like wind) and it can propel you along a bit.

Fit's Tip: Adding at least 1% incline to your treadmill routine will help you burn as many calories as you would if you were running outdoors.
