  • Just had a bariatric sleeve surgery in august. Had some physical therapy to get my muscles in shape, have just joined plant fitness, and am learning to enjoy moving, first time in many years. I enjoy changing up the incline, esp on machines that randomly change it .

  • I am a die hard gym rat so I never found any exercise boring. However, I preferred to use my treadmill at home instead of the gym because I could have my music on because I did not like anything in my ears. I did set the paces each time from 3.5 to 4.0 with time interval and tried to walk more than 30 minutes. I tried to do that 2 to 3 times a week on non gym days. My wife could walk 60 minutes or more each time at 4.5. I could not believe the author would suggest conversation and reading when using treadmill. One could not be serious about working out or walk fast enough if one could read. - 7/31/2016 10:16:04 PM
  • The treadmill is definitely boring, but I use interval training to break up the monotony, and listen to my favorite music. I can't sing aloud since I am in a gym, but it definitely helps to lip sync through my workout. I may be my neighbor's entertainment. :-) - 7/6/2016 11:41:10 PM
  • I would much rather pull out a Leslie Sansone video than get on the treadmill. At least you get motivation. - 7/3/2016 1:06:58 AM
  • I bought a treadmill last year, but with all the trouble I am having with my knees, my doctor says it may not be the best exercise for me. I never got bored with it, just using if for 10-15 minutes at a time while listening to music is relaxing, as long as the knee pain isn't too bad. For now I had to give it up though, at least until my doctor okays it again. - 4/16/2016 3:26:37 PM

    Since I use my treadmill at home, I engage in singing to the radio while I walk. On some days, I'll:
    walk for about 10 minutes stop and do squats for 1 minute
    walk for 10 minutes stop and do wall push ups for 1 minute
    walk 10 minutes at a faster pass stop and do forward lunges for 1 minute
    walk 10 minutes stop and do jumping jacks for 1 minute
    walk the remaining 20 minutes
    then stretch - 9/25/2015 9:53:44 AM

    My routine consists of interval training; I like this method so that I don't get bored. I warm up on my Health Walker for about 3/4 minutes; then I switch to my Treadmill for 6/7 minutes. Then I do my warm up stretches, so my muscles don't get cramped. After that then I do 100 legups & switch to 100 situps; (rest intervals in between each set of 20); drink plenty of water while resting. Now choose an exercise such as bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, or overhead extensions, to build certain body parts that need toning, with free weights or elastic exercise bands; (do 3 sets of each). And to complete your session, return to the treadmill or walker, for about 5 minutes; don't forget to stretch & cool down. That completes your workout session for the day; exercise at least 3 to 4 times a week, especially if you're trying to lose weight; concentrate on your nutrition; eliminate sat fat, sugar and junk food; abstain from alcohol & don't smoke. At this point you're on your way to a new you!! Have fun & enjoy your new life style. - 8/26/2015 1:36:18 AM
  • There are some wonderful walking/running videos that simulate walking in a specific locale. I love them. There is one in Scotland where the sheep get in your path and the video makes it seem that you leave the path and go on the grass. So NOT boring! - 7/31/2015 6:44:10 AM

    Get an exercise bike, use that in between treadmill time, save your knees a bit, remember that you are not getting younger, think about your future knee health, please. - 7/31/2015 6:01:05 AM

    The treadmill isn't for everyone but I love my treadmill, it's 102 degrees outside right now but I'm walking in a pleasant 75 under a fan. I also like that the pace is steady and I can't unconsciously slow down. I also don't have to worry about neighborhood dogs or potholes or being stung by a bee or called fatso by mean people driving by. But please be safe and pay attention, it's as easy to tanglefoot on a treadmill as it is on the road or a track or trail. Most important, do whatever exercise you love and support people who do the exercise they love. - 7/27/2015 3:14:03 PM
  • I have never understood walking on a treadmill. Sometimes I use the gym one for a run but I never walk on them.
    I go for a walk every day, outside and take in natural inclines, changes in pace, having little conversations with people and whatnot. I walk into the City, walk to the gym, walk to the shops (we do have a car but for journeys of less than 2 miles, we walk), even in the rain! - 7/27/2015 4:54:30 AM
