Very good! Report
There were some good points in this article. However, most people exercised for the cardio benefits, not so much for calorie burn. I used my weight scale instead. I also be careful not to eat empty calories and minimized carbo. I have been working out in the gym over 50 years, the treadmill at home was the best investment I ever had. It allowed me to use at my leisure time at home on alternate gym day. I never worried about calorie, I just walked at 4 miles for 30 - 50 minutes or until exhausted. I also started with 10 minutes of treadmill in the gym for warm up. The only advantage to outside if one was a runner which beat running on the treadmill. Almost no one walked fast enough on the outside to be of any benefit. The most important motivation for exercise was to have a goal, whether it was loose weight, be in better shape, and looked better. Report

Every person burns a different number of calories, how can a machine know? Report

Great article. For me, it doesn't seem to matter if the treadmill says 700 calories burned and I probably only burned 500, I still don't lose the weight. Report

There really is a difference from walking or running in a treadmill and outdoors. Report
