Many men who have heart attacks and come home from the hospital get Treadmills until they are able to walk outside which most of them do. That is how I got mne. I bought my proform which was a wide platform and isn't real loud. I only paid $150.00. It has a book holder and a cup holder as well. He originally paid over $650 for it and had it almost 3 years. If I were you, I would look in the newspaper, online and see who is selling a treadmill. A lot of them are updating or realize that it wasn't a good choice or don't need it anymore. I got mine about 2 years ago and didn't stay with it and stopped for about a year. I started back up on July 4 after reading "The Spark" and haven't stopped one day. Even days when I was sick, I might have put in less time but I put in time. Also when someone is selling one, you can try it out which I did. Make sure you take someone with you. My son came along, plus he was able to load it in his vehicle. Anyway, its up to you, buy new or buy used. I hope you enjoy it. I also recently was told by a Personal Trainer that I needed to change the incline on my treadmill. So I change it after everytime my machine shows I have finished a 1/4 mile. I increase and then decrease. I enjoy watching tv while I walk and know that I am helping myself get healthy.
