Treadmill advice


Nomad

Recommended Posts

So I go to the gym a lot , the Mrs just walks as much as possible on the street and winter,rain and so on can limit that , so  said I’d get a treadmill ,put it in the basement in front of a tv for her . She doesn’t run , walks maybe half hour plus , don't care about one’s with programs, fancy screens and so on , an old lady will walk while watching reruns of the A Team .

Id like a decent one for the above needs, the “ net “ wasn’t much help,as it’s all about running and fancy programs ,any thoughts or experiences? I was thinking $500 but that seems a pipe dream , but perhaps $800 ? And I’ll look,used as well 

Thank you

Don't know much about treadmills but it seems like you need the basics.  This would do the job around your lower price point

Check your Craigslist....they are a dime a dozen I bet especially after dry January is over and resolutions are long forgotten!

 

X2 That ... ask the local Planet Fitness how usage drops off mid to late February , home treadmills collect lots of dust !

X3 on what Crappie suggested .   Nomad for the heck of it I just checked my local Craigslist . There were 49 wishful thinkers selling their treadmills and 31 listed for " Free " . Some of the free ones say " Used Once " or Used Very Little " and  " Almost New " .   Surprised there wasn't any of them telling it how they really feel and say  " Get This Freakin Thing Out Of Here ! " :rofl:

I should have been clearer , I’m looking for any recommendations on brands to get and ones to avoid as most home gym equipment is subpar , I’m looking for something decent but basic. ( the Assault Runner elite I use at the gym would be a bit much for her ) 
 

I’ll look used sure, but anything given away free, i probably don’t want it anymore than they do .
 
Perhaps I’ll go to a workout equipment store to get specific brands and models that fit the bill then look for them used .

There are other calorie burners that are easier on the joints and less-likely to cause arthritis issues in later years, including stationary bikes and rowers.  
 

Those can also be used in front of a TV screen, watching old reruns.  I would try to steer her in that direction, if I was in your shoes.

I use every type from Jacobs Ladder, to water rowers , walking is what she does . As far as later years she’s 70 now …her joints are good as many are made of titanium !

Here I am on Jacobs Ladder with a 45# vest on , that’s a workout !
