  • Even tho the treadmill works--and therefore I use it--I still prefer making some Vitamin D by walking/jogging/running in the sunshine whenever feasible.
  • I use my treadmill a lot; about 15 miles a week. Make sure when buying a treadmill that the machine can handle speeds of 6 miles or more an hours for more. Even though the treadmill says it can, doesn't mean that it will and not burn out. This is the experience I had with my first one.
  • Some good tips I wished I would have seen this year ago
  • Regarding the tip to consider purchasing one for yourself at home--when I first looked into buying a treadmill I noticed that pricing, features, guarantees, and reviews were all over the place. When I found one I liked and started searching reviews, I noted that the majority of people LOVED this brand--but about 20% got a "lemon" (something was wrong when it shipped to them--parts damaged or missing and assembly was difficult). I solved this issue by using my local craigslist to find someone who had a working treadmill of that model (all ready assembled and NOT a lemon) but who no longer used it and needed the cash for the treadmill instead of it. Win-win scenario!

  • Definitely prefer outdoor walks but the treadmill is part of the routine in inclement weather.
  • I love my treadmill!
  • Thanks for the tips.
  • I workout harder on my treadmill then I do outside because I have fallen outside and then was stranded. If I were to fall at home I would get help.
  • My treadmill is a god send during the long winter months here in Wisconsin. Used is the way to go!
  • ETHELMERZ
    Treadmills and exercise bikes are great to have at home, don't need to dress up to do them, weather or air pollution won't mess up your work out plans.
  • The treadmill is a great backup for when the weather is lousy.
  • When I get on the treadmill I can't wait to start so that I can quickly finish
  • I use the treadmill 3x week. However, I do hold on because I have balance issues and holding on allows me to up my speed and my incline. I do not feel I have compromised my workout by doing so.
