Thinking of shedding those extra kilos and getting fit? One usually imagines endless hours on the treadmill – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Considered to be a great cardiovascular workout, a run for a few minutes on the treadmill machine helps in keeping the body active. But despite this benefit, sticking to a treadmill can often get boring and monotonous, says Fitternity’s Senior Vice President, Dhara Tanna.

Sticking to only the treadmill can also get the body accustomed to low intensity workouts, which, in turn makes the body burn calories slowly.

Have fun with your exercise routine and switch it up with multiple non-traditional workouts, from the Aerial Hoop to Mallakham to Body Combat.
