has a 40% incline. 50% incline, in my mind would mean the belt is at a 45 degree angle.

Don't feel foolish, that's why you ask questions :)

I was just thinking the same thing on how the numbers translate into percentages!

Thanks for the input. I feel foolish, but it was helpful.

Actually, 100% means you climb 1 foot vertically for every 1 foot travelled horizontally (ie. 45 degrees).

But I agree - a setting of 8 on the treadmill is almost certainly 8%.

80% incline would be nearly vertical, so no, that's not an 80% incline. It would be 8%. :)

Hi,

Generally that means a 4%, 6% and 8%--the most incline I have seen is 15%

How do I determine the percentage of incline on a treadmill. I've been varying it. I'll do level 4, and stagger it up to 6, then 8. So, does that mean I'm doing 40, 60, and 80 percent incline or no?
