I have a NordicTrack which I feel is a good brand but I do not feel like the model I chose has held up well. Plus it was expensive so I don't know if I would personally buy another one. One of my friends has a Pro Form and loves it.
I am looking into getting some new equipment & what I have been doing is looking at what models are available locally & then google reviews on those models. Many times the cheap models do not have the build quality or weight limits of similar models that are $50 or $100 more. This is especially important if you are looking at treadmills. Some models are not meant to withstand long bouts of running if you are heavier than average. I did not realize this when I bought my treadmill & now that I have had it a few years I can tell that the integrity of the machine is waning.
Hope this helps.

So I'm looking into getting either an elipitcal or a treadmill for my apartment. I've attempted to do some research, but I'm overwhelmed. There are so many choices. I'm looking for something budget friendly, NOT manual, and good equality. I will be spending most of the time walking until I can work my way up to running...
