How to Use a Treadmill Safely and Properly

Written by Danielle Travali.

Using a treadmill may seem like a piece of cake (or in this case, a healthy protein bar). But there is actually a correct way to mount and dismount a treadmill in order to avoid injury. Whether you use a treadmill at home or at the gym, the following tips will help you be able to use the machine properly.

What You Need

  • Comfortable running sneakers 
  • Heart rate monitor
  • Stop watch (optional)

What You Do

Step 1

Wear comfortable running shoes. Replace your shoes every 250 miles, or whenever the grips on the bottom of your running shoes start to become too smooth. You shouldn't be feeling the concrete or the surface of the treadmill on the soles of your feet.
