How to Change Your Treadmill From KPH to MPH

...

When you take a walk or go for a run, you probably track the distance covered. This is a practical way to measure progress over time. Most treadmills provide feedback about your workout including distance traveled. The distance data can be set to either English or metric measurements. If your treadmill displays distance in the metric system, kilometers per hour, you can switch it to display miles per hour. Instructions vary depending on the make and model of your machine.
