    Manual treadmills are those that do not contain motors. Instead, the action of your feet striking the treadmill belt causes it to spin. You will expend more energy using a manual treadmill versus a motorized treadmill. Manual treadmills are safer than motorized treadmills too. The manual treadmill belt will not continue spinning if you fall, for example. If you’re a runner, you may be frustrated with some manual treadmills, though. The belt often will not spin fast enough for running, especially with a flat-belt style of manual treadmill. The manual style of treadmill doesn’t have the sturdiness of a motorized treadmill either. However, if you’re only interested in using the treadmill for walking, this style works well.
