I think I would use a treadmill. I don't want to spend 700 bucks to find out. Is it reasonable to buy a manual treadmill to see if I would use it? One person told me it would discourage me because it's too hard. Anyone tried it? It's between that and an easy pay at QVC for a more expensive one I guess.

I have used both---get the best motorized one you can afford. I would read some reviews so you know what you are looking at. Get the widest you can afford. Also there is something with the motors--I believe you want a continuous motor output---again, research it before you buy:-) BUT don't get a manual one--they are a bummer to use:-( I used to have Nordic Trak manual treadmill--I would never do that again. HOWEVER, I love my Nordic Trak ski machine which is manual. You also might consider a Concept row machine for around $800. You might be able to get a one day pass to a Y or other gym just to try out the machines. But keep in mind, their treadmills are going to be around $2000--6,000 models:-/
