Treadmill or a Walk in the Park: Same Difference?
This entry was posted on January 14, 2015.
A walk on a treadmill or a walk in the park: which one sounds more appealing? Well, it all depends on what you are looking for in both. If it is to be assumed that both are to be used for the purpose of exercise then we need to look at the pros and cons of both to decide.
Let’s start with the park. A park is a public place. It is also a beautiful place with flora and fauna. You can be taking a brisk walk and enjoying the scenery, as well as taking in the fresh air. The park is also a great place to meet people and walk together. It gives you the motivation to get out of the house because you may be meeting a friend, or you maybe want to impress that girl or guy that you have seen coming there for the last couple of days. So with that, motivation becomes your exercise. This is good as it keeps your heart fit and happy!
The park is a wonderful place to exercise. It gives you an excuse to get that amazing exercise/running gear you have always had your eye on and now you can justify having it. The treadmill, on the other hand, seems a bit mundane – all you do is walk on a machine where you quicken or slow down your pace, but what you are doing is just walking or running. There is no fresh air, no trees or is there?
Picture this – yourself on a treadmill, on a balcony, overlooking stunning views, taking in the balmy sea air? That straightaway beats a walk in the park! But let’s face it even a treadmill at home or in a gym has its advantages. The best part is that you can exercise whatever the weather may be outside, and you don’t need to dress to the hilt. You can also choose to exercise with a friend – if you go to the same gym. Unlike a walk in the park, where you may tend to get distracted, you are absolutely motivated on a treadmill.
