The Bizarre History of Treadmills

The Bizarre History of Treadmills

Treadmills are machines that are typically used for running and walking. They are also sometimes referred to as “walking machines” or “running machines.” Treadmills were invented by William Staub in 1883. The history of treadmills is an interesting one that has evolved over time with the needs of society and those who use them. Treadmills have been used for many purposes since their invention, including as exercise equipment, entertainment, and transportation. The modern history of treadmills began in 1818 when John Hall invented the speed regulator for a treadmill. In 1892, Dr. Gustav Zander designed a treadmill with an adjustable incline. In 1912, Arthur McFarlane invented the first electric treadmill for use in rehabilitation centers. In 1968, Frank Panton designed the first fully automatic commercial home-use treadmill. In 1980, Bruce Bouchard patented his invention of an upright exercise bike with a moving belt – also called an elliptical trainer – which was marketed as a “walking” machine by Sears Roebuck & Company under the name “Exercycle.” This was one of the first fitness machines to simulate walking or running while sitting still and later became popular as one of the most common types of aerobic exercise. Treadmills have been used in the past to power factories and mills. They were also used in prisons and as punishment for prisoners who disobeyed the rules. The modern treadmill was invented by Dr. William Staub, a German immigrant, who was looking for a way to give his patients exercise without having them leave their beds. In the 1980s, fitness clubs started using them for their cardio workouts and by the 1990s they were common in most gyms. Despite treadmill machines being used to get in shape and work on their cardiovascular health, they also had a few drawbacks. – Treadmills were expensive to purchase and operate. – They were difficult to store because of their size. – People often felt claustrophobic while using them because they did not have any natural light or fresh air coming into the room or much room for movement. The 1990s saw the introduction of treadmill desks. They were designed to allow people to work while walking. In the 1990s, treadmill desks were introduced. These desks allowed people to work while walking on a treadmill. Say goodbye to going to the gym, now you can workout not only from home but while you work! Get fit while you work!
