  • Will it move? Can you change the resistance? Will it be safe? If yes, then sure.

  • it does move...and to do the resistance its manual i think by a lever. I havent used the thing in months since i lost the cord in the move. Ill be testing it out very shortly. Thanks ladies :)

  • Yes, it should be fine. If you are worried I would call the manufacturers # that should be included in the manual.

  • I'd call the company and ask. Maybe someone will be nice and send you a free replacement!

  • I have never owned one, so I don't know. Hope you find a way to use it though.

  • I have a friend that runs on a treadmill that has no power. He says that he is the one powering it and that works better for him. I don't see why you can't as long as it is moving.
