Getting the most of your workouts on the Treadmill
Before you work out
Never overdress; you may overheat. Wear loose fits clothes that do not rub or chafe or cause friction.
Think about your workout briefly before you begin. Remind yourself about the benefits you’ll receive, about the commitment you’ve made to your health. Remember consistency is the key to fitness. Motivation is another important factor.
Remind yourself of the benefit of exercise.
Start slowly and gradually work up to the speed and intensity you desire. Take at least a minimum of 5 minutes to reach your peak speed. Warm up is essential.
During your work out
Stay in the middle portion of the tread-belt.
Monitor your breathing. Can you carry on a normal conversation without losing your breath? If you are out of breath it is time to reduce your speed and elevation.
It is recommended to monitor your pulse or for treadmills without the display of heart rate use a heart rate watch with wireless ECG accurate chest strap to monitor your heart rate.
Always be in the 55% to 85% of your targeted heart rate for maximum benefit. The heart rate is calculated as 220 minus your age x 55% of that figure for lower heart rate & 75% as the upper heart rate. Athletes and fit people sometimes like to exercise upped 85% of their heart rate.
Keep changing the speed and incline as needed to stay within the breathing and your target heart rate zone.
If you want to stimulate outdoor conditions for walking or running on a level surface, set the treadmill incline to 2 degrees. This helps to further cushion the impact of your feet on the moving surface.

Walkers: Walk a brisk pace after warm up for a minimum of 24 to 48 minutes each workout and then cool down slowly reducing your speed.
