Powered Treadmills

WHo here has a powered treadmill?

What brand? Is it reliable? What should you look for in one?

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

I've got one from Galyans...it is a house brand. If I were to look for a new one, the biggest thing I'd look for is resale value. Odds are you won't use it long and will be lookin to sell it......

I have one. Makes a great spot to air dry wet clothes fresh out of the washer!

I just sold one at a garage sale. They are easy to come by used.

Basically, the HEAVIER they are, the better they are. So, bring a UPS scale.

mine is some reebok one

i prefer running, you get a better workout as the ground isn't moving under you, your moving over the ground.

I'll be selling it in 6-9 months if anyone is interested. Has the heart pulse monitor thingy too.

I just baught a norditrack. It's nice. Heart rate monitor, yadda yadaa . . oh and it folds up to conserve space! How cool is that? Used it twice so far and I much perfer it to running outside in the thick, sweltering New Orleans air.

The gym ones are by far the best. If you have to get one for the house, don't buy a new one. There are hundreds of like -new ones everywhere for name-your-price. Good luck!
