  • yes.. walking on a treadmill is fine! i live in philadelphia, and i feel the same way.. there would be NO WAY i would walk around my "neighborhood" But when it is nice outside maybe try to find a nice park or lake to walk around to mix things up. I know i get bored on the treadmill easily and it begins to collect dust. I found a beautiful park that is a mile walk around a lake in NJ that i absolutely love! Good luck on your walking.. but the treadmill should be just fine, walking is walking no matter where you do it!

  • Oh it's the same thing. Well, you miss out on the fresh air perks, but not being murdered, raped and mugged are big plusses.

  • Heck yes it's fine! That's how I get all my exercise. I live on the coast in SC and it's STILL humid, hot, and sticky. I won't be walking outside for at least another month then it'll get too warm again by April.

  • Is it really that bad? I walk around Bronx, New York at midnight....if you want fresh air...carry pepper spray
