Treadmill Trivia

If you love working out on a treadmill, take this quiz to see how well you know your machine.

Treadmill Trivia

You and a friend are walking on treadmills at a pace of 15 minutes per mile for 30 minutes. You raise the incline to five percent and she uses no incline. Providing that you weigh the same, how many more calories will you burn than your friend?

I use the treadmill, but outside running is SO much better. I sometimes feel like I'm going nuts on the treadmill.

ooh 3/3...and the last one I got right because that's my usual workout :-) I actually prefer running on a treadmill to running outside, by far. I know I'm probably the 0.00001% of people who do, but I like to read magazines, and since my treadmill is in the living room of my apartment, I can adjust either of my two fans right on my face :-D

2/3. Fit did say the time for number 1, its 30 minutes.

Exactly, Firefly. Incline burns 100 more calories after how long?

2/3...I didn't know such a slight change in the incline would increase calorie burn by so much!

Only got the last one correct. Agree with runningesq - I only run on treadmill when I have no choice - eg. when it's pouring outside.

The first question was too vague. You'll burn 100 calories more in how long?? An hour? Half hour? Per mile?

I got 3/3. Not sure why it says I got 33% under "top scorers". That seems to happen to me a lot. :(
