Home Treadmill Training: Burning More Calories On Your Incline Trainer

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

A NordicTrack Incline Treadmill Can Burn More Calories

A NordicTrack Incline Treadmill may burn more calories than a regular treadmill by offering a greater incline range than other treadmills with a staggering -6% to 40% incline range.

Thanks to the incredible incline range, you can push your body harder than you can at 0% incline, which may allow you to burn calories at an increased rate.

There are three NordicTrack Incline Treadmills 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. 

Ways To Utilize An Incline Treadmill To Ramp Up Your Burn

Unless you are a regular hill runner, you may 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 treadmill and avoid burning out too quickly, try these things to ramp up your calorie burn.

Utilize iFit® Programs

Accessing the excellent exercise programs through iFit allows you to follow personal trainer-developed and led workouts. The iFit personal trainer will take over your incline treadmill, adjusting the speed and incline to help push you to the next level of your fitness. There are many workouts available with a subscription to iFit with more being developed, 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 treadmill will be cushioned and have less impact on your joints. You may also take your hill intervals at a walking pace as you alternate between high incline levels and more moderate ones for great calorie burn.
