Thanks for the feedback.

You get what you pay for in a treadmill. We paid $1000 for our Nordic Track. It's ok but I think I'd get something different the next time.. It also depends on what you're using it for. If it's walking, you can get by with a lesser expensive one but if you want to run on it, you really need to invest in a good quality one. Check online for reviews on the treadmills you're looking for.

I have a Life Fitness which I love. It was a little over $2000, but that was 8 years ago. They are a quality company that makes health club grade machines (I like it enough I just got a life fitness elliptical). I have had it eights years with only one service call and I think that was just to tighten the belt, never had a motor problem. It is a T3 with the 3.0 HP motor, it has incline that can be changed by .5% up to I think around 10 or so. It can go up to 12 mph. Other things to think about are the computer display you would want...pace, speed, elevation, distance, HR, etc; how large of space do you have, how heavy of a treadmill do you want, do you need to be able to move it, belt width, service cost, and of course how much you want to invest. I am sure I am not thinking of everything, but I bet others will respond. Lots of Luck.

I'm thinking about getting a treadmill. Sometimes the weather just isn't inviting for outdoor runs. My gym has a hard and fast 30 minute limit for treadmill usage during peak hours and I'm trying to stay 10k fit through the winter.

What do I look for in a treadmill? Any idea what price range is the minimum to get a sturdy, durable machine that won't be super noisy?
