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

Never owned a treadmill, but i had an old Stairmaster that i picked up from the swapmeet for like $30.00.

I named it slayer. It would destroy anyone who dared to challenge it. That thing was a monster.

I recommend the BowFlex Treadclimber. Mainly because the redhead in the commercial is hawt and has a great ass.

Now keep in mind the the fan sucks and the speakers are shit, but that didn't bother me. I wanted the money I spent to go to the motor and chassis, in short all the important bits, and that's what you get with this treadmill. No bells and whistles.
Hmm Ill try to remember that brand when its time for me to buy. I don't care AT ALL about speakers or a fan. If I want a fan, I'll put a fan next to me. If I want speakers, I'll turn up the tv or radio or phone or ipod. How fast does it go? The ones I use now only go up to 12 mph, which isn't fast enough for doing intervals or sprints at the end of a run.

But either way, it's my wife not me. You can call her a pussy all you want, but she still isn't going to go run in the dark when it is 20 degrees outside. Especially in February when it is 10 and windy. It just isn't happening.
I'm with your wife. If I'm going to exercise, it has to be in perfect conditions. And perfect conditions entails either running with a tv or walking/riding bike with a magazine.

Would she consider an elliptical trainer? I've had one for several years and paid around $200 for it. They don't take up as much space as a treadmill and give a good workout.

I'll talk to her about it. She used one when we were in Sidney and liked it.

Her knees will be happy. It's a good choice if she's interested in just general staying in shape and not athletic performance.

The 103 wont go that fast. You'll want to shop around for a different model. It's an entry level machine after all.

I'd consider this. If nothing else it's a cheap way to find out if she will be able to stick with using something.

The neighbor gave me a <$200 elliptical type machine when he kicked his wife out of his house and it gets MUCH more use than the $1100 space eating beast of a treadmill I thought I needed.

Just do it... Don't go cheap or it'll be easy to put in a corner. Don't get one that folds up, or it'll go in a corner. Don't get a fan on it, what's the point, you're there to sweat... Get a large-screen TV to mount on the wall in front of the gem - if you don't the boredom might force you to put it in the corner... I think the wider belt is worth the coin, when you start running on the TM, you'll find the TV sometimes has you drift (like vertigo)..

Don't worry too much about cost... If you're going to use it, use it, a $400 difference over the life of the unit is pennies a day. And a bad TM will make you want to put it in the corner - and that's a waste of all money spent!

And do the GD maintenance! Pay for it or do it yourself... It's worth it!

Still, it's good to know about a good brand.
