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

Both. Like anything with moving parts, it's going to wear. Just pay attention to what the instructions say. If nothing else, get the plan for the first year, maybe two, and see what they do...

I'd never compare the two... A treadmill is awesome and I think you should get one. I belong to two gyms (a third soon), it helps when you travel, but I have gear at home too. While a gym can be a drag to get up and go to (AM workouts are best for me, evenings are just too difficult to plan), but there are times you just can't get there. So the TM works just fine to alleviate the guilt...

That being said, a gym offers a lot too. Short of the BS social club that so many are (another minus for evening hours at the gym!), they do usually offer a good atmosphere when you want to be around other folks who want to lift. And the wide array of gear that most folks can't for a basement becomes a must if you're going to lift everyday. The bowflex thing didn't quite work for me...

Anyway, I think money spent on your health is well spent if used, so one night out drinking call drinks will cost you far more than all these combined (yeah, you can only do so much to lead a healthy lifestyle!), so take one Friday or Saturday night and do this instead. Best nights for the gym too IMO!
