 MOTIVATED@LAST Posts: 15,427 4/19/13 12:37 A 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%. M@L
 DRAGONCHILDE SparkPoints: (60,917) Fitness Minutes: (15,360) Posts: 9,709 4/18/13 11:44 P 80% incline would be nearly vertical, so no, that's not an 80% incline. It would be 8%. :)
 SP_COACH_NANCY SparkPoints: (0) Fitness Minutes: (112,042) Posts: 46,222 4/18/13 10:28 P Hi, Generally that means a 4%, 6% and 8%--the most incline I have seen is 15% Coach Nancy
 NOMOREFATKELLY SparkPoints: (1,616) Fitness Minutes: (2,824) Posts: 17 4/18/13 10:24 P 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?
