How to Get the Most Out of Your Workout on the Treadmill

Confession: I kind of love the treadmill. I don’t have one at my gym so any time I’m traveling and am in a hotel fitness center that has one, I’ll always try to hop on for some interval running or just a light jog. I find them so convenient for pacing and pushing the speed and just de-stressing. After all, when you’re on the treadmill, it’s not like you have to watch for traffic or anything. And how fast you’re going is right there in front of you.

But, I know that the treadmill is nicknamed the “dreadmill” for a reason. It can get boring, static — I mean, it basically is a fancy digitized hamster wheel. My husband — the closest Fit Bottomed Dude in my life — abhors the treadmill. And I have a feeling he’s not the only guy (or gal) reading this who feels that way.

Which is exactly why we wanted to share this awesome infographic on how to get the most out of your workout on the treadmill from Fix. With tips, pointers on form and even workouts, it might just convert the biggest treadmill haters out there.
