The Best Shows on Netflix to Watch While Walking on a Treadmill

By  | 

If you’ve never tried walking on a treadmill while watching your favorite Netflix series, you should seriously give it a try. You probably spend hours on end clicking “still watching” since you’re so into your show, but you’re wasting away precious time to be doing something more productive. Even if you have literally nothing to do but watch Netflix, you can do it in a better fashion than lying in your bed watching it on your laptop. If you have a treadmill in your basement, grab an HDMI cord and hook it up to your TV, it doesn’t matter if it’s a mirror TV, old TV, or brand new TV with surround sound, as long as you can connect to the Internet or connect it to your computer. Position the treadmill in front of the TV and walk as slow as 3.0 mph. You can even intensify the incline if you’re feeling really athletic. This way you can watch all the Netflix you want, while also working out. Even if you’re not breaking a sweat, it’s better than lying under the covers all day long.

You won’t even know that you’re exercising when you start to workout while watching your favorite shows. In fact, you’re going to fly right through the seasons. For this reason, you have to have shows lined up that you want to watch. Below are some of the most intense shows on Netflix that are bound to keep your attention away from the walking and plastered to the screen.


Dexter is about a guy who works as a blood splatter specialist for the local PD, but doubles as a killer at night. He’s not an ordinary killer however, he only kills people who have done bad things (he has the inside information as he works in the police department). He was taught to justify the killings by his police officer father when he was young. Because there was no doubt that his disturbed past was going to catch up to him, he used his sickness to better society, or so he thought. Dexter’s double like gets him in all sorts of trouble that he tends to think he way out of. Who know how much longer he’s going to be able to hide from his truth.


If you haven’t seen every episode of Friends a hundred times you’re truly missing out. Even if you’ve seen the episodes before, you’re still going to laugh. The show revolves around 6 friends and their ordinary lives while making you feel like you’re a part of their little group. Through the ups and the downs the 6 stick together and so do you. You’ll cry, you’ll laugh, and you’ll even jump off the treadmill in frustration, but it’s worth the watch.

13 Reasons Why

Just like Netflix gives you, here’s a little disclaimer: don’t watch this if you’re under 18 or get emotional easily. It’s a pretty disturbing show, especially for starring high school aged kids. It is however, really interesting and attention grabbing. There’s a ton of mixed feeling on if this show should even be on Netflix, so look into it before you start it. But if you want to watch something eye-opening, check out this Netflix original.

Santa Clarita Diet

This show is pretty out there but extremely funny. Drew Barrymore is the star and remains the star throughout the Netflix original. Her and her husband were two ordinary realtors until one day, she turns into the undead, a better word for a zombie. Now she can’t eat normally and her cravings are making her do some pretty wild things. Her husband and daughter work together to keep life with a zombie mom as normal as possible.

There are hundreds of awesome shows to watch, but these are a few treadmill favorites. Honestly, it wouldn’t be surprising if you could finish a whole series while walking.
