Treadmill Fitness Walking is an effective way to burn extra calories and achieve a healthy lifestyle. Fitness walking on the PROGEAR LX225 is one of the easiest and most effective ways to achieve a regimen of regular exercise. Fitness walking can help you lose body fat, tone muscles and is a great way to stay in shape because you power the treadmill instead of a motor. Unlike most other manual treadmills, the LX225 has 4 rubber cushions positioned under the treadmill deck, which will reduce impact on the ankles, shins and knees. The LX225 has been tested up to a significant weight capacity of 270lbs. The soft deck will make your workout more comfortable than even walking outside on hard surfaces. Additional heart rate readouts on the computer can keep you in your targeted heart rate zone for the maximum workout possible. So let's get fit, and get the workout you want, by trying the PROGEAR LX225 Cushion Deck Manual Treadmill with Heart Pulse Monitoring.
