I'm considering a treadmill

I'm considering buying a treadmill. I hate treadmills. But the wife wants one so the smart money says we'll end up with one.

I need to query the CP brain trust regarding the treadmill products out there.

I'm looking for one that I (she) can move pretty easily. Don't want it to cost a fortune but I also don't want to end up with a pile of **** either. I may use it from time to time, and I'm enormous, so how big of a deck should I get?

What kind of brands or features should I look for/avoid?

TIA

It's a great way to wake up and watch the morning news.

Or find a TV show series you like and watch an episode every morning and run for the duration of the episode (or 2 if it's a 30 minute show). I've used this to watch all Star Trek TNGs, Star Trek DS9s, and Breaking Bads.

This. If you focus on the tv you aren't so much thinking about being tired or bored and you aren't just sitting around while you watch tv. Kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Really, for people who live in the midwest who want to run or walk, investing in a treadmill or club is a good idea. It's not like California. We have ice outside to worry about.

She talked about one of those, one of her girlie friends suggested that. Price tag makes me want to cry.

And if we get it bought, and she doesn't use it (particularly if it costs a ****ing grand). Don't ask where she is or why there is a fresh hole dug in the back 40.

Buy a used one at a garage sale or Craigslist.

At least a durable one. They don't move easily. Unless you want to have it in a spare bedroom that can be cleared for the occasional guest, a good treadmill, I think, is supposed to just sit there. It's not like an ironing board.

That's the plan. That's why I want it to be mobile, so she can run it out in front of the TV and roll it back in the closet.

You CAN spend less, but it'll be tiny and flimsy - it won't be like the ones you use at the gym. Just start shopping around IN PERSON and see what's out there in your price range/quality range and then start reading online reviews and such.

I live in the midwest and you can probably count the days with 1 hand where you don't want to be outside in the winter. It's been like that for a looooooooooooong time now.

That is for sure. Still gets dark early enough.

I would also consider naming your treadmill. We call ours Bannister (in honor of Roger). If we don't use it, Bannister gets sad and starts plotting our deaths.

The treadclimber is like anything else. Its for sale on craigslist alot. Still costs a chunk though. I know I feel different after 40 minutes on that when compared to the same time on a standard treadmill.

What the **** are you talking about?

http://www.intellicast.com/Local/Wea...ation=USKS0530

Tuesday is the last day I'd want to be outside. The high after that is 51 and there isn't a day the wind is going to be below 10 MPH. That's goddamn cold.

And she gets home at 6, an hour after it gets dark. It gets damn cold running in 25 degree weather.

Not telling you what to do, or denigrating what you think of as cold, but after you've been running for 15 minutes, you're not cold anymore.

Guess I'm just used to this "cold" weather you speak of. 40 and sunny is not what I call cold. Wednesday is the only day on that forecast that I look at and say nope, and that's because its a mix of rain and snow.
