20 of the best treadmill workouts - for when the weather gets nasty

Hi everyone!

I feel like I’m channeling my former weather girl self with the title of this post!  Can’t you just see the tv promo??—>

When bad weather strikes.. what do you do??!! These super fancy treadmill workouts… duh! duh! duh!

Sorry, that was BAD!  Regardless, I’ve gathered some of the best treadmill workouts on the interwebs from my favorite bloggers!  And of course thrown in a few of my own too.  Think you hate the mill?  Try my 5 Ways to Make Running on the Treadmill Easier!

Before I get to the best treadmill workouts, I also wanted to point out that I believe that the treadmill can be a great training tool.  I feel like it can be an effective way to get in speed work or tempo runs that you are having trouble hitting yourself.  You can use the treadmill to get your legs used to a faster speed and then take that movement outside.  I have even used the treadmill as a tool to hit my 5K PR.   I believe there is a time and place for good quality indoor workout equipment.  It can make you a more well rounded athlete!

I’ve been running on my trusty Horizon Fitness Treadmill for over six years now.  I tend to run on it more often in the cold months, because well… I really dislike the cold… but it is something I am on year round!

My Horizon Fitness treadmill has gotten me through everything from working on a comeback and rebounding from sinus surgery, hitting PR’s and even training for marathon.

I remember one monsoon rainy Saturday morning during my marathon training cycle where I ran 17 miles on it.  Needless to say, I feel very close to that machine and it’s gotten some serious wear and tear! lol!  I’ve even been known to say it’s my favorite “thing” I’ve ever bought. (Makena even loves it!)

The Best Treadmill Workouts / Running in a Skirt

Horizon Fitness also makes some pretty legit ellipticals, exercise bikes and even rowers, making cross training super simple.  Isn’t this bike lovely? I’m totally crushing on it!My Horizon Fitness treadmill folds up with their “Featherlight” technology which means it’s a breeze to fold up.  The new machines do the same thing.   Isn’t it a beaut?

They are designed to specially fit the body, so you can move naturally while working out.  If you are in the market for quality equipment to put in your home, start here.

It’s time.  Start falling in love with the treadmill and bad weather or not… give some of these best treadmill workouts a try!

Which Treadmill to Buy?

Don’t forget to look at Horizon Fitness machines, and specifically treadmills to finish off your own home gym.  As I mentioned above, my Horizon Fitness treadmill is one of my favorite things I have ever bought. It makes working out a home a cinch and gives me no excuses to not get my run in.  If you buy directly from Horizon, you buy directly from the manufacturer so you can rest assured you’re getting a dependable machine for the best value.
