Exercise for elephants

Well, I am glad the Alaska Zoo is finding a way to keep their 23-year old elephant fit during the harsh Alaskan winters. But I have to wonder about the effectiveness of a treadmill. Is the elephant going to know what is supposed to happen? Will she figure it out, or will just wonder why the hell the ground is moving under her feet? What if she doesn't, and she gets sucked into the mechanism?

All of these questions trouble me.
