The Most Common Treadmill Quirks You'll See at the Gym

Sometimes running on the treadmill is a necessity, and everyone has their own personal style! If it's been awhile since your last treadmill run, here are some of the most common (and inventive) habits you can expect to see at the gym. And if you happen to fall into one of the "quirk" categories, then take my advice to heart.

The TV Enthusiast

Catching up on your favorite TV shows on the treadmill ensures you make it to the gym, but don't so caught up you forget to run. Your multitasking habits should not come at the price of a quality workout.

The Music Buff

We feel you on this one, Brad! The right music can really make or break a workout. Rock out to one of these running playlists at the gym to put a skip in your step and help you keep pace.

The Inspiration

Forget the haters, and focus on your health. There's nothing more inspiring than seeing someone who's committed to their goals look confident in a sea of rock-hard bods at the gym. Even if you're feeling a bit insecure, fake it till you make it!

The Dancer

At some point, every gym rat has seen some cuckoo shaking their tail feathers with killer choreography. This guy nailed it, but remember: safety first! There are too many treadmill fails that start off looking this way. (And this way = incredible.)

The Snacker

Take your Goldfish elsewhere, pal. A little water is essential to stay hydrated, but that's all the sustenance you need for your treadmill run.

The Overzealous

Pushing yourself past your limits is necessary for growth, but don't go too quickly too soon. Gym newbies should start slow with a walk-run treadmill plan and build up their stamina from there.

Or You Can Stay Outside . . .

It's cold outside, but you can continue to run outdoors during Winter. Just be sure to bundle up according to the temp out there.
