A wheel 14 or the like is secured to the shaft 13 and rotated in concert with the shaft 13. A motor 15 is disposed on the base 10 and coupled to the wheel 14 and/or the shaft 13 with a transmission device 16, such as a pulley-and-belt or a sprocket-and-chain transmission device 16, such that the shaft 13 may be rotated and driven by the motor 15.

A pair of treadmills 20, 30 are identical in construction, and each preferably includes a rigid treadmill platform 21 having a front end and a rear end, rollers 22 rotatably mounted at each of the front end and the rear end of the platform 21, and a continuous tread 23 extended around the platform 21 and rotatably supported on or around the rollers 22. The rollers 22 may be secured on the shaft 13, such that the rollers 22 and thus the treads 23 may be rotated or driven by the motor 15, and such that the treadmills 20 pivotally mounted on the base 10 in side-by-side adjacent relation by the shaft 13. The rollers 22 may also be separately coupled or secured on the shaft 13 by gearing transmission or the like, for allowing the treads 23 of the two treadmills 20 to be driven separately by the motor 15. Two spring-return hydraulic cylinders or actuators 17 are coupled between the posts 11 and the treadmills 20 respectively for supporting the treadmills 20, such as the front ends of the treadmills 20 in an inclined position. The actuators 17, and/or the construction of the treadmills 20 is considered to be conventional in the art, and therefore no further description is thought to be necessary.

As shown in FIGS. 2-10, the treadmill apparatus in accordance with the present invention further comprises a coupling device for coupling the treadmills together and for allowing the treadmills to be conducted with a stepping exercise. The coupling device includes an arm 40 having an orifice 41 formed in the middle portion thereof (FIGS. 5, 7, 8), for receiving a pivot axle 18 which may rotatably or pivotally securing the arm 40 to the base 10, and for allowing the ends of the arm 40 to be moved; up and down and to be disposed below the treadmills 20, 30 respectively. The ends of the arm 40 each includes a frame 42 provided therein for supporting a rod 43 therein which is about parallel to the longitudinal direction of the base 10 and of the treadmills 20, 30 and which is perpendicular to the arm 40.

Two columns 47 have the lower portions pivotally or rotatably secured onto the respective rods 43 with such as a universal joint or the like.
