  1. Move your treadmill or select one so you’re not facing or too close to a wall or especially a television. Facing a window can be especially helpful.
  2. Keep your head and eyes up and don’t stare too much at the display. You can really avoid this by covering the display with a towel or extra shirt.
  3. Don’t be afraid to lightly touch the handrail. Keeping a hand on it can affect your stride a great deal but if you lightly tap it with your right hand every once in a while throughout the running gait you can reduce your stride changes but also have a good sense of your placement in relation to the machine.
  4. Putting the incline between 1 and 2 % may help the machine feel more like outside running.

I haven’t had much issues with treadmill dizziness, but the treadmills at my gym face out to windows, so I am regularly checking in on my reflection in relation to the building across the street (I make sure I am not bouncing too much). I definitely agree that focusing too much on the display can be problematic!
