Used the tread mill here at the hotel only because it was a challenge step. Much prefer the outside even rain or snow I will walk. Have Meineres so don't feel comfortable on a treadmill. However, I actually made a strong effort to not even hold onto the handle since read that its better not to do so. Report
The first step to using the treadmill here is moving the sleeping cats. Manual use is harder on wrists, but gives a different type of workout to the leg muscles. Report

Sometimes I can't get onto treadmill like I like so I have to do extra walking in the house. Report
Good suggestions. Report
Great article for me. Can't do a lot of the exercises because of back problems, but can walk for exercise. Have treadmill at home. Report
Even tho the treadmill works--and therefore I use it--I still prefer making some Vitamin D by walking/jogging/running in the sunshine whenever feasible. Report
I use my treadmill a lot; about 15 miles a week. Make sure when buying a treadmill that the machine can handle speeds of 6 miles or more an hours for more. Even though the treadmill says it can, doesn't mean that it will and not burn out. This is the experience I had with my first one. Report
Some good tips I wished I would have seen this year ago Report
Regarding the tip to consider purchasing one for yourself at home--when I first looked into buying a treadmill I noticed that pricing, features, guarantees, and reviews were all over the place. When I found one I liked and started searching reviews, I noted that the majority of people LOVED this brand--but about 20% got a "lemon" (something was wrong when it shipped to them--parts damaged or missing and assembly was difficult). I solved this issue by using my local craigslist to find someone who had a working treadmill of that model (all ready assembled and NOT a lemon) but who no longer used it and needed the cash for the treadmill instead of it. Win-win scenario! Report
