treadmill help

6 posts in this topic

I am looking to purchase a new or used treadmill. Is there anything I should look for, I don't need anything too fancy, just something that I can run on. Thanks

Buy Used, I like Pacemaster, but I am into power walking and like it's stiffer bed. Go to 2nd Wind try some. Then be patient on Craigs List you will save 50 to 75%. A lot of people buy treadmills and do not use them. Now is peak time for potential users to buy, Spring is peak time for them to sell.

You can email me at s_e_hendricks at comcast dot net and I'll chat with you about them. But yea, used is the way to go. Adjustable speed and hight is good.

My wife and I just bought a NordicTrack and have been very pleased so far. I understand what folks are saying about buying used, but most companies have a really good warranty and service program if you buy new.

The worst time to buy excercise stuff or join a gym is now. If you can wait 2 months you will be able to pick them up cheap. Most will be only used a few times. There is something about the new year that motivates people. I would be willing to bet that 2nd wind gets most of their used inventory around March or April. Go to Craig's with a little patience and an idea of what you are looking for. You will get the best deal.

You get what you pay for, just remember that. A good treadmill will have a good deck and belt that you can wax and make sure it has a nice sized motor. I worked fro Pro Source a while back and did service on them things.

    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
