I use the treadmill if it's too cold outdoors, usually in the winter.

During the winter I mostly use the treadmill or Leslie Sansone DVD . When the weather improves I am outside walking or hiking

I use the treadmill a lot because I live in Mn and the weather is so unpredictable. But I also use my ellipitical and I love doing the Walk Away the pounds dvds. Whatever I can do in order to not go crazy with boredom in the winter. But I would rather walk outdoors.

I use the treadmill only when I can't walk outside because of heavy rain. (I don't have to worry about snow for another month or two)

sometimes the treadmill, sometimes the road and sometimes the track at the local school

I alternate between doing treadmill, walk away the pound dvds, ellipitical or running or walking outside. I prefer to walk/run outdoors but since I am limited on time and i need to get a workout in, I do my walking or running on the treadmill.

I do the treadmill only when I have to. Mainly for 20 minutes but I do interval inclines at a walk. I think it helps work the back hamstrings and butt. I prefer to walk outside in most weather since I live in the country.

I do walk on a treadmill when I have no other choice but it is too hard on my body to do it for very long so I tend to walk in 10-15 minute increments up to maybe 45 min max - the treadmills make me dizzy and the steady pace often leaves me aching, although I can walk for a couple of hours without feeling any after effects when I walk 'normally.'

Another factor for me is that my dogs want and need to be walked and obviously the treadmill doesn't help with that so I combine their needs with my needs and we usually walk outside at least twice a day. Still, it's great to have the treadmill as an alternative when the weather is yucky outside! Good luck!

When I walk on a Treadmill, I usually walk between 6 to 8 miles a day. On an indoor track, 4 to 6 miles a day. emoticon

As a rule I walk on a padded track,14 laps per mile very easy on the joints. I like using my own power, not the motor of a treadmill. I will once or twice a month walk on a treadmill as a change of pace for 30 min. No more
