I know I can set a treadmill at the quick start setting and just run. But, why can't I set a program or the manual setting (which calculates calories burned) to longer than 60 minutes?

    Wouldn't this be treadmill-specific?.. – Dmitry Selitskiy Feb 8 '12 at 21:28
  • This isn't a sports related question. – Marcus Swope Feb 8 '12 at 21:31
  • @Marcus I believe it would be. If I was asking about shoulder pads, that would be on topic. A treadmill is a piece of equipment highly related to the sport of running. However, I do agree with Dmitry that this question is too localized. It would only apply to specific brands of treadmills. – corsiKa Feb 8 '12 at 21:50
  • On all the treadmills you can't do a workout longer than 30 minutes. I don't think it's a brand related question. – Gabriel Solomon Feb 8 '12 at 22:23
  • @glowcoder you are right, I must have been in a bad mood :) – Marcus Swope Feb 8 '12 at 22:36

The treadmill has a max time limit. Usually it's 60 minutes. Even if you hit quick start at 60 minutes it will stop the workout. Read how to change that limit here.
