  1. Assalamoalykum. SubhanAllah I have been thinking about walking on my treadmill and I received your email. Thank you very much. May Allah bless you all. Ameen.

  2. As a Personal Trainer, I would agree with everything except the holding of weights, increase intensity by going faster or inclining more. Use your treadmill time to watch or listen to lectures & to do tasbeeh & don’t forget to thank God at the end of your workout for giving you health.

    • Assalamo Alaykom, we would be interested in knowing why you don’t recommend holding weights while on the treadmill. Please share. You may do so via our gmail. Looking forward to hearing from you Insha Allah. Barak Allahu Feek

  3. I dont see how this article is making it more exciting the treadmill is still boring, whats wrong with walking outside in the real world.

    • Assalamo Alaykom wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu.
      Absolutely! Walking outside “in the real world” is great. However, sometimes climate or other restrictions do not permit. Also many sisters and some brothers enjoy working out in the privacy of their home. Our recommendations are not set in stone. Ultimately it is left to the individual’s creativity. The article is meant as a reminder of sorts on how diverse a workout can be with the treadmill by simply changing the settings. Often times the treadmill is pegged as boring because the user’s workout experience is limited therefore so is the imagination. We appreciate your feedback. Barak Allahu Feek
