RUNNERS USE TREADMILL AS TRAINING TRACK (Nov, 1933)

RUNNERS USE TREADMILL AS TRAINING TRACK

A one-man training track for runners is part of the equipment recently installed by an English sporting club. The device consists of a small treadmill platform with an upright pipe frame in front. Gripping the frame, the runner begins his workout, a speedometer at one side of the apparatus indicating how fast he is going. Speeds up to twenty miles an hour are recorded by the indicator. Because of its construction, the treadmill enables runners to work in a small room.
