If you’re looking for a great cardio workout, these treadmill workouts will help you get your heart pumping — no running required!

We bought a treadmill a few years ago and I love using it as a treadmill desk, but I rarely use it for running. I’ve learned that running doesn’t feel great on my joints and it’s hard to get myself motivated to log miles indoors. Luckily, I’ve found that I can work up a sweat without actually running!


As a NASM certified personal trainer, I know how important it is to stay consistent with exercise. But you have to find workouts you really enjoy, otherwise, it’s hard to stick with a routine! These walking treadmill workouts are a great low-impact way to get your heart rate up!

So if you’re looking for a great treadmill workout without running, these workouts can get you started!
