Incline button? You mean I don't have to put bricks under one end to raise it up.

I refer the honorable gentleman to Gaspard-Gustave de Coriolis.

By setting the treadmill to an incline you are lifting your own body weight through height.

For those that may use a treadmill....the following link provides a reasonable conversion chart for pace / incline etc.

yeah, kinda agree Gobi...if I'm not running a hill session on the treadmill then I just leave the tready at 0%. The link however contains some useful helps the reader to understand that a 09:00/mi mile on the treadmill at 0% is NOT the same as a 09:00/mi mile on the road and, can be used to prep / understand what sort of pace(s) you can expect when running for the same effort on the road.
