As you are going to a gym and have access to a treadmill, why don't you do a combination workout of treadmill and bwe squats. Squats are done in tabate protocol, that means 20 secs work followed by 10 secs rest.

So five rounds of tabata like squats is 5 times 20 secs squats followed by 10 secs rest.

The workout to be done:
- 5 rounds tabata like squats
- 2 minutes on the treadmill
- 4 rounds tabata like squats
- 2 minutes on the treadmill
- 3 rounds tabata like squats
- 2 minutes on the treadmill
- 2 rounds tabata like squats
- 2 minutes on the treadmill
- 1 rounds tabata like squats
- 2 minutes on the treadmill

Start at a running speed that makes you breath hard and over time try to run faster. This way you get the best of both worlds. If at one point you will find a running track you can replace the 2 minute run by 400 metres run.
