Treadmill Workouts For Overweight Beginners



Treadmills are a piece of exercise equipment that can help you burn calories and burn body fat at the gym or in the comfort of your home. There are countless health benefits to walking or running on a treadmill; this includes improved heart health, weight loss, and decreased insulin resistance and blood pressure. If you are overweight and you need a workout plan you can use at the gym or home, I found three videos that you may find beneficial to get you started. Each video recommends walking speed but listen to your body and begin at a speed that will enable you to finish the complete workout. 

The best three treadmill workouts for overweight beginners

Even though the first exercise video says that it is for women who are pregnant or for the beginner, this plan is excellent for overweight individuals. It is 20 minutes long, and the instructor gives you plenty of advice and directions.

Video number two is also a great treadmill workout for overweight beginners. However, she does have high inclines in this workout routine. If you feel you can't do the highest 9% grade, take it down a few grade levels. Keep working at it, and soon, you will be able to walk at the higher incline levels.

The last video is about 20 minutes long. The instructor's walking speed starts at 2.5 mph (4.0 kph). Like I said above, if 2.5 is too fast, you can decrease your speed and still follow along with the instructor. Eventually, you will work your way up to the higher speeds.

These are my picks of treadmill workouts for beginners. If you know of a video that you think should be added to the list, send me an email at
