  • I have an elliptical. I really like it. I need to work out on it more though. I have a Pro-Form 15.5s. I got it from Sears a few years ago.

  • whatever you like and feel you will stick with. If you get a treadmill I'd get one that allows it to incline so you can boost the workout.

  • I use the Nordic Track T5 zi treadmill. I highly recommend NOT getting it. The belt has slipped so much. If you're a heavy runner like me, stick to running outdoors if that's your thing. I got it to work out at home since I have 3 toddlers and I hate getting up at 4:30AM to run outside. I recommend an elliptical. I have to wait til next year til I can afford one though. I've heard great things about Sole ellipticals BUT they are very costly. Around $1,500 or so. If you're just getting a treadmill to run though, the one I listed is great. I got it February of 2010 for $650 shipped directly from Nordic Track.

    Another thing if you're getting it shipped directly to you - be sure your street isn't too small for them to get down. I live in a very residential area and they wanted to be sure I had the entire street cleared since it was/is a freight delivery.

  • **If you're getting the treadmill just to walk - it's good.
