Would love to have my own treadmill - but just do not have the room. But, I do have a club membership - so that is my favorite when there!!

I absolutely love my treadmill! I am so glad I bought one for myself! Report
When I have music, I walk farther on the treadmill. The only thing I don't like about the treadmill is that it takes up a lot of room, 24-7! Report

I joined Sparkpeople a while back but life got in the way and I quit walking on the treadmill and quit writing everything down, etc. Well, tonight I read a few articles and decided that if I let life get in my way again I may not live so long! Beginning tomorrow I'm back on the treadmill, reding articles and recommitting to SPARKPEOPLE because it ROCKS!! Report

The treadmill is great to have where weather extremes make outdoor exercise unreliable. I'm headed for mine right now, as I watch the snow sift down outside. Report

I have had a treadmill for a long time. Used to use it all the time but haven't much lately preferring to do cardio DVDs. Guess I need to add some more walking to my routine! Report

I HAVE A TREADMILL IN MY LIVING ROOM AND HAVE DIABETES AND VERY SELDOM DO I EVER USE IT. IT HAS BEEN LIKE A PIECE OF FURNITURE. MY WORKOUT SHOES ARE LAYING ON IT TOO. OMG. I AM INSPIRED TO GET ON IT. I WANT TO FIGHT DIABETES WITH SERIOUS EXERCISE AND A NUTRITOUS DIET AS I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO USE INSULIN AS MY LATE MOTHER DID. I AM A RETIRED 65 YEAR OLD AND I LOVE SPARKPEOPLE. Report
Love the Treadmill! Report
I love the treadmill. I actually bought an elliptical and dont use it ...I usally wind up going to the gym and using the treadmill.. It's a great way to shed pounds quickly. I go about 3 times a week. I started last year. I went from 270 down to 209... not bad

i didn't know you weren't supposed to hold onto the handrails when walking on the treadmill... i always hold onto them. not sure if i can do it without... guess we'll have to see. i only use the treadmill anyway when it rains or is very cold outside... i prefer going out to the park and walking the 1.5 mile path around the lake.

This is a very timely article for me since just yesterday I walked around the treadmills at the gym but felt too intimidated to get on. I didn't know how or where to start! Now I do - thanks! Report

I WILL LIKE TO KNOW ALL ABOUT GETTING USE TO USING A TREDMILL. Report
My husband bought me a treadmill for my 30th birthday, right after having a baby. He thought his friends would never let him live it down.... secret was - I begged for one! It is the BEST gift I have ever received. I would latch my baby on in a pack and we would walk for hours! She loved it, I loved it....the treadmill is my best friend! I now take my Nook eReader, hop on and get lost in a story line. Before I know it, I have 2 miles in for the day! Keep working with a treadmill and you will soon find it to be your lifesaver! Report
