Treadmill Safety & Inspiration

I must admit that flying off the treadmill is always a concern of mine so be careful, pay attention and let this quote make you smile!

Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.

    1. I try hard not to hate it but I do call it ‘Treadmill Torture’. I’m taking a ‘brick’ class and somehow, doing intervals with the other people isn’t bad. By myself, I’m not only slow, but I tend to overheat–thus the torture! 🙂

  1. My Dad fell of a treadmill once, because he simply forgot you need to turn it off! I am pretty sure there will be tredmills you don’t need to turn off anymore soon. Personally, I never run on a treadmill except for when I go to get new running shoes, but I would like having one to run on when it’s icy outside.

    1. Oh, your poor dad! I try not to space out, becuase of my fear of flying off the back. Yes, I wonder if feeling your weight or run cadence will effect it someday? I try to go outside so long as it’s over 30! 🙂 Thanks for commenting!

  2. This happened to me last year!! I was at the gym, and someone had not turned off their machine. So I walked onto it, while it was still on…completely unaware. It was pretty funny 🙂

    1. I’m glad you got a chuckle. Of course after I posted this, I took a class and she had us running backwards on the treadmill and my biggest fear nearly came true as I almost flew off the back! I had to laugh at myself. 🙂

  3. Oh this is too hysterical. I was laughing and crying as I watched it. Luckily most of the people were doing something stupid in the first place so I don’t feel too bad about laughing at them… Always use the safety clip on a treadmill!!!!!
