I hold onto the handrails much of the time, however I have been working very hard to UNDO this habit and I find that my workout is more demanding, with heart rate going up higher, more sweating when I DON'T hold on, as opposed to when I do...even though I don't change the speed or incline.
It also helps me to improve my balance.
Slow down if you need to let go and be steady and build your speed up over time.
