Treadmill Workouts

Looking to get more out of your 30 - 45 minute workout on the treadmill?  Try a Fleet Feet Treadmill workout!  This interval style of training will have you challenging speed and incline. 

How to get the most out of these workouts:  When you are "going hard" or "running fast" really try to push yourself.  You should be working hard enough during the work intervals that you are 1.) Breathless,  2.) Can not go much longer than the designated time, and 3.) NEED the rest period.  During the "rest" period you should be walking slowly.  If you find yourself trying to jog or run slowly during the rest period you will know that you should push yourself a little harder on the work intervals.

Have fun!
