Fitness freaks sweat out hard to achieve their fitness goals. If you are a fitness freak, you must have included different exercises in your daily schedule. While physical workouts are a must, the involvement of different fitness machines is growing these days. Above all, a treadmill is a must for fitness enthusiasts.
Treadmills are used for cardio training which helps in boosting cardiovascular health. It strengthens muscles, including thighs, glutes, and calves. Even if you are not a fitness freak but are just focused on maintaining good health, then body stretching, walking & running-like simple exercises are a must. Many install a treadmill at their home to achieve their fitness goals.
The price range of a standard treadmill starts from Rs 12000. The price of this fitness tool increases with the inclusion of high-end features. But some people have reportedly figured out a cheaper hack.
Indian billionaire businessman and the chairman of Mahindra Group Anand Mahindra on Saturday shared a video on social media with a caption reading, “The lowest cost treadmill in the world. And this year’s Innovation Award trophy goes to…”
The video shows a youth in his kitchen spraying some liquid soap on the floor. Then he sprinkles some water from the tap. Then, he rinses the water and liquid soap on the floor with his leg.
He touches the kitchen slab with his fingertip to mimic the pressing of a button on a treadmill and slowly starts walking on the floor while holding the slab. Then he simulates the pressing of the button and gradually increases his speed in tandem. He repeats this action till he breaks into a sprint.
