FAQ

Before you start to use a treadmill, you should think about what type of running workout you’ll be doing. Depending on the price class, there are different types of programmes to choose from. More expensive treadmills have more advanced programmes, while the simplest have only a few setting options such as distance. The more advanced models are often compatible with any training application you can download to your smartphone. Apps make it possible to record your training and design your own sessions.

That all depends on what you want to get out of your training. If you’re looking to get a high heart rate and lactate, intervals are good, in which case you don’t need to run for very long on the treadmill.

A normal high intensity interval workout is usually between 20-40 minutes, including warming up. If you want to build up your fitness, we recommend a speed at which it becomes difficult for you to have a conversation during your workout, but below the limit for developing lactate. The right length of such a run is around 30-45 minutes, depending on how used to running you are.

If you’re really out of practice at running, we recommend starting slowly so your body has a chance to get used to it. 10-15 minutes at a leisurely pace may suffice the first few times. If you're an experienced runner, you can extend your workout to 60-75 minutes or maybe even longer if your body feels good.

"As a beginner, it’s important that you build up your speed. Start slowly, at a walking pace, and then increase gradually. The goal is always to be somewhere in the middle of the running deck. The treadmill belt moves backwards towards you, so you have to move forwards at the same speed. If you run too slowly, you’ll eventually fall off the machine, and if you run too fast, you’ll eventually run into the console.

For new users, there’s a great risk of injury if you increase your speed too soon or maintain too high a forward speed. If you trip at a high speed, it’s easy to fall and injure yourself.

So it’s important to adjust the speed according to your ability and to stay as close to the centre of the running deck as possible. Even if you set a high target speed, bear in mind that it takes a while for the motor to accelerate."
