welcome to healthcare magic
Before you jump on a treadmill for the first time, stand on the treadmill with your feet on the side rails (not the belt) before you start the machine. Select a manual program and increase the speed of the belt to about 2 to 3 MPH to begin.
To start walking on the treadmill, it's often easiest for a beginner to hold on to the handrails and place one foot on the belt and "follow along" with the machine pace. When you are comfortable with the pace, step onto the belt, let go of the handrails, and walk normally.
Start by walking at a slow comfortable pace, such as 2 MPH. Keep your head up, and stay centered in the middle of the belt
Warm up by walking for a few minutes before increasing the pace.
Once you are comfortable walking, you can start jogging and then running on the treadmill. This takes some practice. Getting on an off a moving treadmill can make you feel a bit dizzy the first few times, so be careful of this unexpected sensation.
before stoping threadmill decrease the speed until the belt stops.
Hit the big red stop button, which reduces the speed quickly.
Hold on, step onto the sides, and turn off the machine.
