Home Treadmill Training: Burning More Calories On Your Incline Trainer

Many people turn to treadmill training as a great way to boost their calorie burn. By using a NordicTrack treadmill, specifically an incline trainer, you can burn more calories than on a regular treadmill.

A NordicTrack Incline Trainer Can Burn More Calories

Incline Trainer – NordicTrack

A NordicTrack Incline Trainer burns more calories than a regular treadmill by offering a greater incline range than any other treadmill available, with a staggering -6% to 40% incline range. Not even commercial gym incline trainers can reach 40% incline; at best, they can go up to 30% incline.

Thanks to the incredible incline range, you can push your body harder than you can at 0% incline, which allows you to burn calories at an increased rate. If you are at 40% incline, you can even burn calories five times faster than you would while working out at 0% incline.

There are three NordicTrack Incline Trainers for you to choose from and all of them have an incline range of -6% to 40%, as well as many other technical features which are the same.

No matter which incline trainer you decide to purchase, you will be able to burn five times the calories by pushing the incline range to the max.

Ways To Utilize An Incline Trainer To Ramp Up Your Burn

Unless you are a regular hill runner and in peak shape, you will likely find it difficult to go at higher incline levels for more than a few minutes at a time, especially if you are maxing out at 40% incline. To help you utilize your incline trainer and avoid burning out too quickly, try these things to ramp up your calorie burn:

Use iFit® Programs

Accessing many excellent exercise programs via iFit® allows you to follow personal trainer-developed and led workouts. The iFit® personal trainer will take over your incline trainer and adjust the speed and incline to help push you to the next level of your fitness. There are over 12,000 iFit® programs with more being developed every day, so you are sure to find a program that suits your needs.

Add Hand Weights To Your Workout

If you need to work up to higher incline levels and need to start with the lower range, you can use adjustable hand weights to boost your calorie burn. Combining the incline range with the extra resistance from the weights, you can enjoy greater fitness at a faster pace.

Push Your Hill Intervals

 Many runners dread running intervals, whether for speed work or for incline training. But, unlike outdoor intervals, hill intervals on your incline trainer will be cushioned and protective of your joints. You can also take your hill intervals at a walking pace as you alternate between high incline levels and more moderate ones for a great calorie burn.

With an incline trainer in your home, you will be able to reach your health and fitness goals even faster than before.
