I am considering buying a treadmill. Just wondering which ones you guys own. How are you liking it. What are our favourite features on it?
I was thinking of the Nordic Track Commercial 2150.
Also, have any of you used the iFit technology that some of the treadmills come up with now?
Thanks a lot bees!

I have an inexpensive Gold Gym (trainer 410) treadmill from walmart that I bought almost 9 months ago. It still runs just fine, I love it! And I grew up in a gym (my mother was a fitness instructor) so I think I’m a little picky when it comes to fitness equipment.
Hope you enjoy whatever you end up with!

We bought a spirit fitness from a gym speciality store. Sports authority usually have good Xmas specials

Thank you bees!
I will look into those.
I was kinda hoping more bees would have chimed in. Nobody else has a treadmill? Really? C’mon!

I have a cheapo Horizon T70 that I got for $300 on ebay. Since most of my training is done outdoors, I only use it when the weather is bad or if I wasn’t able to get a workout in earlier in the day and it’s too dark out. It’s not uber fancy, but it gets the job done without breaking the bank. I’ve had it for about 4 years and it’s still functioning well. One thing I love is that it has quick start buttons for speeds 1-10 so I can easily do intervals with just the push of the button (i.e. go from 5 to 6 or 6 to 7 mph). I wish it had a +/- 0.5 mph button, which I’ve seen on pricier Tmills, but for something I only use once every couple weeks, it’s not a game-changer. If you’re only going to be running/walking on the tmill, then invest in something that fits all your needs, but if you’re going to be doing a lot of outdoor running as well, I wouldn’t spend excess dollars on the big brands.
