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

If you want to save money why not just buy a pair of nice walking shoes and stroll the block?

Look for one that will transition well to a coat rack, because that's what it will be used for.

Go to an actual exercise equipment store. There is a big difference between health club quality equipment and those little flimsy things you see at academy/dicks/etc. You'll probably need to spend $1000 minimum.

Don't pretty much all home owned treadmills end up being massive dust collectors & space eaters in people's basements after about 2 months of use?

Get one that's easy to dust and has shelves on it's face when it's folded up.

Think cheap and light too.... If it's big, expensive, and heavy you'll just live around it forever instead of throwing it out.

Only for the people that lack any sort of motivation. I'm on mine at least 4 days per week or more during the winter months and only on bad weather days during the warm months.

I'm pretty sure I'd use one. I've use the ones at the apartment every single morning (almost) for the last 3 years. When I buy a house I'll definitely need one.

I have a Sole F80. It's the featured product here: http://www.soletreadmills.com/

I think it's a reputable brand. I would keep my eye on Sears ads and wait for it to get under $1K. I got mine for $850.

Treadmills are boring, take the above advice or you will be hanging coats on it in 3 months

And put a TV right in front of it. I wouldn't use mine unless I had a TV to watch.
