a weird question...


so i find that when i run on the treadmill, let go of the handle, and then after a few minutes go to grab it again, i get a shock.

&it's really really annoying.

does this happen to anyone else?

how could i stop it?

it doesnt happen all the time, either.. i can't work out what causes it... but if i dont let go (run holding the handle looking like a dork) i dont get the shock.

HOW THE HELL DO I STOP IT?

thanks.. i know it's an odd question but you know.. fitness community &all :D

Is it a metal type handle? If so maybe put a towel or something on it?
I think what causes it is static electricity......but i'm just guessing.
yeah it's that black metal stuff.. i could try a towel or some sort of cover.. a towel usually slips off though :/

but i will try &think of putting smething over it.. thanks!
That happens to me sometimes, but I think it depends on what pants/shorts I'm wearing. I've found it happens most with parachute type material (not sure of the right word...).
