  • I haven't used my treadmill in a while. I just think it's kind of boring. I used to watch tv or listen to music. I'm thinking I should just put it in the computer room. I could watch youtube while working out. That might be something a bit different. hmmm - by CECELW

  • Always a good idea to use those extra minutes this way. You'd be amazed at how much you can get in during those long commercials. Don't even need any equipment. - by PROPMAN1
