How to workout quietly 

  • Consider buying a quieter treadmill

Our exercise equipment is often one of the main sources of unwanted noise. If you make use of a treadmill, then you know how loud it can be. Buying a new treadmill that's been specifically designed to run without a lot of noise is one of the best ways to ensure a quiet workout.

The great thing about these quieter treadmills is that most of them are new models, so they have lots of great features and incredibly convenient designs.

Fortunately, you don't have to go and look for the quietest treadmills that are out there. We’ve taken a look and found you 7 of the quietest treadmills on the market right now. 

  • Buy a thick exercising mat 

Sometimes we underestimate how much of a shock absorber a simple mat is. Whether you're placing the exercise mat under your feet or exercising equipment, it's going to reduce at least some of the noise you normally make when you're working out.

Do you already have an exercise mat? Well, if it hasn't made your workouts that much quieter, buy a thicker mat. The thicker the exercise mat is, the quieter your workouts will be. Do your downstairs neighbors hear you workout? This will definitely help reduce workout noise.

  • Get a quieter exercise bike

Exercise bikes produce a lot of sound. For the most part, you can control the amount of noise your exercise bike makes by controlling the speed at which your bike's wheels turn.

But, this really affects the overall realistic experience you want to get out of using the exercise bike and it’s somewhat limiting.

  • Choose low-impact exercises

Low-impact sizes are less effective, but they also make a lot less noise. Low-impact exercises include things like quiet jumping jacks, silent burpees and quiet jump squats.

If a low-impact workout is too easy for you, you can always consider doing more reps to increase the intensity of the workout.

An elliptical allows you to get in a good cardio workout, testing both your strength and your resistance. If you choose the right elliptical, you get a great workout minus all the noise that goes along with it.
