Why Jillian Michaels Believes In Incline Training

February 1st, 2009 by Fitness Guardian

A Hard Workout That’s Easy On Your Joints

Many people want to exercise at greater intensity so they burn more calories in less time.  Unfortunately, increasing exercise intensity usually means making the exercise higher impact which puts more wear-and-tear on your joints.  Not true with incline training.

She Likes It

Celebrity Trainer Jillian Michaels of the Biggest Loser is a spokesperson the NordicTrack Incline Trainer.  Here’s what Jillian says about Incline Training excerpted from a letter posted on their site.

I absolutely believe in incline training. I’ve seen awesome results with the people I train on TV, and I use it as part of my own workout.

Here’s why:

Incline training is more efficient than other aerobic exercises. At just 25% incline, and 2 mph, you’ll burn 3 times the calories compared to walking on a level surface. When you increase the incline to 40% you’re burning 5 times the calories, just by walking.

That’s why I use it with the contestants on TV. Incline training works, and it’s fast. And because all you have to do is walk, incline training is virtually zero impact. This means you’ll be able to work out longer and see the results faster.

Get Incline Training Into Your Workout

There are ways to start incline training for every budget:

1.  Walk Up Hills: Find a walking route with a long hill.  The steeper the hill, the harder the workout.  Presto.  You’ll get the low impact intensity benefits of incline training for free.

2. Incline Your Treadmill: Most treadmills have incline adjustments on them.  Start using yours.

3. Incline Training Specific Machines: These machines are specifically designed for incline training and have steeper elevation capabilities, specialty decks and more powerful motors built for inclining.

Checkout Bowflex , NordicTrack and FreeMotion incline training machines.

Happy climbing!
