Hit the links this season by including the Golf Course program, found on most Horizon Series treadmills, in your workout. This distance-based program simulates walking or running the various inclines and yardages of holes on a golf course.
To begin, choose a course of nine or 18 holes and one of four levels, or "tee-off boxes," each varying in distance and categorized by color (red, white, blue or black). The "tee-off box" you choose determines the distance you walk or run to get from one hole to the next, and is completed at a speed that is comfortable for you.
The benefits of the Golf Course program:
An incline more effectively strengthens upper leg muscles by training the lower body over a greater range of motion.
There is a significant increase in calories burned at each percent of incline.
Walking or running at an incline provides a more challenging way to increase the workload in terms of distance without going faster.
Simulates your golf course walk when the weather isn't cooperating.
