I have a question for the forum...I have some challenges with my hip and my doc says that treadmills are essentially useless and that I'd be better off on a gym floor...not because of the recovery journey for my hip but because treadmills only allow you to exert 50% of the energy you would if you walked the earth. He says it'll be another 18mo before I will run again but I'm ok with that because in the past I was told I would never run again by other specialists.

I've enjoyed doing just the incline walk classes until I'm cleared to do more and this recommendation to get rid of the tread is really troubling to me.

Any thoughts/recommendations on if I should get rid of it? I understand the value of gym floor workouts however getting to the gym is not always feasible as a mom. I'd love the thoughts of other Peloton enthusiasts on this.

If you are enjoying your workouts, then why not continue? While it is true that running on a treadmill is a little easier compared to running outside, that doesn't mean that you aren't getting a good workout on our Peloton.
I'd be less concerned about not getting the maximum possible exertion, and instead focus on the positive: you have found a way to exercise regularly and you are having fun doing it.

Wishing you the best with your recovery!
