All fitness levels find common bond on treadmill

You can learn a lot about health and fitness just by walking on a treadmill in a gym.

Yes, I know there are many other places to learn about ways to improve your health. I’m just saying a treadmill in a gym is one of them.

When I’m working out alongside others in a gym, I only feel comfortable chatting with people who are using stationary bikes or who are walking — not running — on treadmills. I figure if you’re running, you’re probably pretty serious about your workout and you probably don’t want to carry on a conversation with someone.

Since I seldom ride bikes, I mostly talk to people on treadmills. I like hearing about my comrades’ success stories — how exercise makes them feel better and has helped them lose weight.

A woman recently told me she had lost five pounds in just a couple of weeks. She lost weight, partly I assume, because of her workouts but also because she had cut down on sodas — she said she was down to one a week — and potatoes. She also had switched to whole-wheat tortillas.

She said she didn’t like “diet food,” but it sounded as though she had found ways to tweak her diet so she was losing weight and eating better.

Good for her.

Talking to people on treadmills at gyms is a fun way to exchange information about health and fitness. I had never heard of whole-wheat tortillas until my fellow gym member enlightened me.

One man told me about some kind of abdominal “cruncher” device he uses instead of doing crunches or sit-ups. It sounds like something I might be interested in. I just have to remember to look for one when I’m shopping.

The man, who is in his late 60s, likes to keep track of how many calories he burns and how many miles he walks when he exercises. I think the practice often motivates him to try and surpass his previous totals. In other words, it motivates him to do more and improve his fitness level.

Good for him.

Although we fitness enthusiasts aren’t experts, we all have one thing in common: We’re all looking to improve our health, for whatever reason.

Good for us.
