  • 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! - 7/9/2013 12:47:57 PM
  • 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! - 7/9/2013 4:13:18 AM

    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!! - 3/15/2013 8:38:46 PM

    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. - 3/7/2013 10:40:17 AM

  • 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! - 2/3/2013 4:00:37 PM

  • 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. - 9/10/2012 9:14:15 PM

  • 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. - 4/24/2012 6:30:33 AM
  • 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! - 11/17/2011 12:43:20 PM
