Also, the same argument could be made against buying excercise
equipment. For many people, treadmills or exercycles quickly become
expensive coatracks.

Wouldn't the YMCA have been cheaper?

While some people can stick with exercise forever, like maybe JC. Most
people go through an exercise phase, that might last a month. They give it
a good try, then they stop. I've seen it happen. That is why gyms want to
sell you a full year contract. The gyms know most customers will only come
for a month or two. If they sold gym memberships by the week, they would
make much less money....

Hey Luna,
Am I right, or what?

I thank all of you for your advice. I will be only walking. I decided to

a Reebok because I got a real deal. I will use it a lot so I needed
something sturdy with a decent warranty. Plus a I got discount on an
extended warranty.

I am looking to purchase a treadmill and am I tired of looking. From what

can see, the cheaper the narrow the tread and the less apt to get any

of warranty. And the better ones start at 900.00 and up. Can any one

me any advice on brands and models. I have nearly narrowed it down to a
Reebok or NordicTrack. Both come with a decent warranty.

Have you tried the local tip? Last time I checked ours there was 3 or 4
treadmills there for the (cheap - $5 or so) taking

Have you tried eBay or (even better) garage sales? People often use those
for a short time and then sell them very cheap while they are still in mint
condition (almost never used, in some cases).
