Treadmill Lubrication – Ya Gotta Grease The Skids

Treadmill lubrication on many treadmills is a necessary part of equipment maintenance and care. Failure to regularly lubricate the treadbelt will result in increased wear, substantially shortening its lifespan.

Though you may not think about such things when choosing among treadmills, lubrication is an important matter to consider.

Treadmill Lubrication

The treadbelt revolves around rollers and over the treadmill deck creating friction and heat and causing wear on the belt itself. When you walk or run on it, wear and tear on the treadbelt increases substantially. Lubrication greatly reduces the friction.

Not all treadmills require lubrication. Some, usually those in the higher price brackets, are equipped with treadbelts made of materials that are essentially ‘self-lubricating’.

Manufacturers advertise them as ‘self-waxing’ or ‘guaranteed for 10, 000 miles’. But others require lubrication to keep moving parts working properly.

Only A Rube Fails To Lube

Treadmill lubricants are either wax or non-petroleum-based silicon, depending on the model. Treadmill manuals usually indicate which is the proper lubricant to use and some will specify a brand, like Performant or Lube-N-Walk.

What I do and it has worked

2007-02-05 10:58:25 by climber703

Here's what I did. It is sort of the whole picture. i had to set realistic goals for myself. I used to set unrealistic goals and then when I didn't meet them I'd get frustrated and stop trying.
First goal was to lose weight and I am quite happy with only loosing 2 pounds a month as long as I am having progress I am ok.
The exercise I do now is I swim at least 3 times a week. I am up...festyle change. i'm not doing this to loose weight I'm doing it because it feels good now and I like what I feel like after I exercise. Loosing weight is a side benefit. when I focused on the weight loss I failed continually. If I don't want to be fat and yo yo all the time I have to have a lifestyle change that becomes part of me just like the lifestyle change I had when I began gaining weight.

I got the best advice from a client of mine

That sells fitness equip. to high end public gyms and home gyms. I asked him almost the same question when I was just starting out.
I said 'What is the best piece of equip. on the market that will help me at home or should I join a gym and just use their stuff?'
He said, 'The best piece of equipment is the one that you will USE. If you buy a bowflex or gazelle but don't use it there is no point. If you join a gym but never go then you are just throwing your money away. Think about who you are and be honest with yourself about it.'
So I got my treadmill, a yoga mat, and some weights, and it's been working out great!

I think you're off to a great start

Our home gym is in our basement. We have a what I think you're talking about for the standard weight exercises, a treadmill, and an elliptical. Been thinking about getting a rowing machine, but haven't yet. We also have a TV with VHS/DVD and mats down for stretching (and some lifting).
I don't know if you know what you're doing with weights, but you might want to get a book to help you get...'re working all of the major muscle groups. I know I've mentioned it on here before, but my favorite is "Getting Stronger" by Bill Pearl, which was the textbook for the weightlifting class I took in college. We had considered getting a Bowflex, but decided that I'd try sticking to a routine in there for a few months to see if I got the benefit I wanted without crowding our space more, and I did.

Need serious help

I've tried crash diets, I've tried reading labels for hours, it's only resulted in small short-term losses and hours wasted in the store. Let me tell you right now, I'm a very, very heavy-set person, I'm currently 430 pounds.
I've lost some before now from weightlifting, but before that I seemed to equalize around 450 or so. I've gained a good amount of strength, and that may be offsetting...d be able to continue it after I reach my goal. Money is a short term object, as I'm currently unemployed, but I hope to fix that shortly. Budget would be, 20 dollars a day?
Just a rudimentary shopping list, I'm horrible at shopping for myself, which probably got me here in the first place.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to those that took the time to read this.

    I'm 14 and just got back onto healthy eating after 3 days of starving cause my friends convinced me. Hopefully I can do this and not fail and starve again like I always do. So does this meal plan sound healthy? Keep in …us 40-60 minutes a day on a treadmill with an incline of 6 and speed of 3-3.5mph and light strength training cause I have a bowflex thingy. Any suggestions would help, just know that I'm not a creative or talented cook.

    • D- Stop fooling yourself. At your age, your metabolism is at it's prime...if you f+ck it up now, you will have to deal with the unhealthy results for the rest of your life. I know... NOT EATING IS NOT AN OPTION!!! Go thro …g TV on my computer, took the stairs instead of the elevator, and smiled a lot...I lost 4 pounds. You'd be surprised how many calories you can burn from smiling! KEEP SMILING!!!...and STAY HEALTHY WITH YOUR DECISIONS!!! G

    • I would say that it sounds relatively healthy. maybe try eating a little bit more fruit throughout the day to keep your body healthy enough for exercise. keep up the good work!
