If you want to burn extra calories, read a book, paper, magazine while on the treadmill. Set the incline at 5% and 2MPH and you will burn 156 calories in 30 min. You would have to walk at a 15min mile to burn the same calories

    I read while stepping onto and off of my aerobic step. I'm able to get several chapters read, steps toward my daily goal, and calories burnt

    The aerobic step is a great idea for those of us who don't have treadmills to use! Thanks!
