My treadmill is the old fashioned kind, it's manual. You don't push a button to make it go, your foot power makes it go. It's on an incline too so I have to get something to make it level, I do NOT like walking on an incline. It's simple and basic, it doesn't have any fancy display panel, just digital numbers for calories burned, milage, walking speed, time you've been making it move and pulse except the pulse rate thing doesn't work, and a lopsided cup holder that doesn't hold much. I thought I would love it and would walk all the time, I am now not fond of it after using the fancy electric ones at the gym, but you get what you can afford. It takes a lot to move it and you have to hang on to the handle bars to keep it moving. After I've been walking on it for only 2 minutes my calves hurt and my ankles hurt, I suppose that means it's working but I get leg cramps. I'll just do the best I can, at least it's something when it gets too hot or humid to be outside.
