The Importance of Stretching
Before we dive into how to follow a workout on treadmills, we’re going to use this opportunity to tell
you how important it is to stretch. These running workouts are addictive. Be very mindful when you
ramp-up your total miles in a given week. Also, make sure you’re stretching. A drastic increase in
running will tighten your muscles. Use a combination of stretching and a foam roller to recover
What do the numbers mean on the treadmill?
Generally the numbers will stand for miles per hour. For example, if you’re running at a 6 on the
treadmill, it means 6mph, or a pace of 10 minutes per mile. When you hear the trainers on Daily Spot cue
the workout on treadmill, they will generally say ‘give me a 6,7,8’. These cues are meant to guide your
pace on the treadmill. If you’re a beginner, start with the 6 for that interval. Because almost every
treadmill will show you the mph, it makes it very easy for the trainers to make sure each person is
doing the exact same thing. Yes, assuming your treadmill is mph, a 6.0 pace on your treadmill will be
the same as a 6.0 pace on all other treadmills. The same goes from incline. Now that you know this, all
you need to do is put in your headphones, commit 30 minutes to Robbie’s program, and let him take you
through a great workout on treadmills set to an awesome playlist. Try it for yourself!
