How to Avoid Dizziness on the Treadmill
There are a few things you can do to hopefully avoid becoming dizzy while on the treadmill.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Putting the incline between 1 and 2 % may help the machine feel more like outside running.
