Brooklyn based phyical trainer, Mark Izhak, writes about what not to do with your treadmill. One thing he mentions is that a treadmill is not a giant hanger. If you need more room to store your clothes, try Contempo Closet’s 8 door wardrobe with hang rod and interior drawers. Contempo Closet can also help you organize accessories with belt rack or a tie rack.
The image of your shirts and pants hanging on a treadmill is popular these days. And why shouldn’t it? Your clothes are right there for you to grab. Picking what you want to wear is a cinch since your entire wardrobe is sprawled out on what should be a piece of equipment that burns calories and tones your butt!
Keep doing this if you want your clothes AND your thighs to get all wrinkly.
Here’s why you may have ended up this way; you chose the wrong piece of exercise equipment. If your treadmill is your closet, you probably don’t like running and should have gotten an exercise bike. A good piece of fitness equipment will cost you close to $1,000. Don’t get fooled by cheap models.
The cardinal rule in buying home equipment is this. Don’t buy it unless you love it. Otherwise it’ll just be the booty call version of your closet. Easy to use, but it’ll make a mess of your life. Next, try before you buy. You want to know that you’re buying something that you will actually use. See if you prefer an exercise bike over an elliptical or treadmill.
Also, remember that you can get a great workout with any of these machines. Find a qualified instructor to take you through one or two workouts. This will show you how to get the best use out of it, which will give you the motivation to keep it clean and keep using it regularly.
