View Full Version : Treadmill Brands?
01-15-2009, 10:23 PM
So I am looking for a treadmill. I went around to local stores to price them and came back with a few to do research online. But the reviews are so mixed. Here are a few brands that fit into my price range. . . (I would love to stay under $750)
Does anyone own any of these treadmills?

I have had a Proform and love it. Mine came with Ifit and you can go onto the internet with it. I have had mine about 10 years and not one minutes problem with it. Happy shopping!

That's good to hear. That is what Sears sales here. There are some bad reviews of them, but I can't imagine Sears selling a piece of crap (or continuing to do so)
What about everyone else??? I know y'all have treadmills. . .even if you are using them as clothes hangers!

If you get Consumer Reports, they usually have their ratings around this time of year.

I have a Wesco Cadence.. i found it on Craigs list.. It was some guys F-I-L's and it was hardly used.. the guy sold it for $100 because he said it squeeked and the display was out.. Umm I put 3 triple A batteries in and the Display works now.. Oh and the squeek wasn't there at all..

I bought a pro-form 650 crosstrainer from sears, and it has worked just fine for me for over a year and a half now! Granted I could have used it ALOT more over that time, but I go through episodes where I'm working out quite regularly, and it's never given me any trouble. Usually I'm scared of jogging on a treadmill because the treads have always slipped, but this one has never done that for me. I even put it together myself without any problems. (And no help from my hubby either!!!!)
The only annoying thing I have noticed about it is the handlebars coming down from the display are too close together for me. Sometimes, if I'm not paying attention, I bang the tops of my hands on the corner of the handles when I'm walking. (Ouch!) Guess I'm a bit of a WIDE load ya know! But it's really not that big of a deal, and it doens't happen that often.
Hope this helps!
