Treadmill suggestions/warnings

Post  charles.moman on Sat Jan 02, 2016 8:38 am

I am seriously considering getting a treadmill - a nice one that will last a long time.
I have looked at the major brands, but I would like to hear from any of you who are happy happy with their treadmill.
Or any warnings some of you have about buying one.
I am willing to spend up to $2,000 or so to get something that will last.
I have looked at a zillion reviews and I can find great and terrible reviews about every company and treadmill.
And I know some are fake.

Thanks!

We got a NordicTrack C1500 at Costco about 10 years ago, and it's never given us any trouble.

I looked into TM's a couple of years ago and the Sole F80 comes very highly recommended.

I just can't stand TM's and fortunately, living in SoCal, there isn't much use for one.

I've got a Nordic Trak that is their version of the Boston Marathon one that Schuey has.  I hate it as my old Keys was much better (no bells or whistles, but way better).  I hate running on one so avoid it like the plague anyway even when its sub-20 or even sub-0 in temps unless there is snow and ice.
