I AM 76 AND CAN'T COME EVEN CLOSE TO THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE "BEGINNER" INTENSITIES. I THOUGHT MY ACTIVITY LEVEL WAS PRETTY GOOD, BUT GUESS NOT. COULD THERE BE A BEGINNER WORKOUT FOR US WHO ARE WAY OVER THE HILL? RIGHT NOW 2.8 IS MY TOP SPEED AND ONLY FOR A COUPLE MINUTES.

This is making my treadmill time much more interesting and it feels a lot shorter. With winter coming on, walking outdoors is becoming difficult so anything that makes the treadmill more fun is welcome. And because of the lower intensity intervals, I can go faster during the high intensity times. Love it!
Interval training works! It helped me tranform my body. Of course, we have to be safe whatever we do. The person who said "don't do it," I don't know what led to her injuries, but we do have to do whatever exercise properly. But intervals burn fat! And I like that!
Don't do it. Working with a gym owner/trainer tried doing this. I went from walking/hiking for miles every day to getting the worst leg cramps in less then a block after doing this for a few days. It took me over 3 years for the cramping when going on a walk to stop, I only did this for about a month.
