4. Get on and off the treadmill carefully
Never get on or off the treadmill while the belt is moving. If you are not alert about this you could injure yourself. Know where the emergency halt switch is located. Often this is a bright red switch.
End your workout session with stretches for the legs and back muscles. A good time to stretch is immediately after an exercise session, while the body is still warm. Stretching prevents muscle soreness and increases flexibility.
