Treadmill Running Burns More Calories Than Track Running

Running is one of the best ways to lose fat and improve fitness. Many people prefer running on a treadmill at home or in the gym because its more convenient than running on the track or at the park. 
A University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire study found that people burn more calories and consume more oxygen when they run on a treadmill at a 1% grade and a self-selected pace compared to when they run on the track. Treadmills force you to exercise at a specific pace, while you can slow down when you get tired on a track.
