    Whenever I sit down to watch TV I think: “If I had a treadmill, I could be working out right now . . .” But I wouldn’t even know where to begin in looking for a treadmill. You give some good guidelines for people like me to begin the search. Space and size and weight would be the biggest factors for me, I think. I would want something that is easy to move, but wouldn’t a lighter machine be a less durable one?

      Hi Shannah and thank you.

      I absolutely agree. One of the benefits of having the treadmill at home is this possibility you talk about. The possibility of jumping on the treadmill when you are watching sports or your favorite programme on TV, getting good exercise at the same time you enjoy the TV.

      Compare the warranty offer on the motor, the frame, and labor. If it is normal, with the fact in mind which I name in the article there is no reason you should be worried about the lighter machines:

      “Warranties
      Buying a treadmill is a long-term investment. Always check for the manufacturer’s warranty offer on the motor, the frame, and labor. The more extended the warranty, the better for you. A good treadmill can have a warranty on its motor of between 10 years and 15 years. The frame and labor come at a shorter warranty period of between 2 years and five years. Always remember to compare the warranty offer on your preferred treadmill against other treadmills with similar features.”

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    I want one but it will be too big for me to bring into my home with a small entrance door. Will Amazon help deliver to me? I have to install myself or there is a technician who will install for me. Which model you would recommend for a small body size like me.

      Hi, Kit and thank you.

      Usually are free shipping for this treadmills. And Amazon takes care of it, so it is in good hands.

      About the setup and what would fit well for you with the space in mind. I recommend Weslo Cadence because it is easy to folding and then rolling away. So in little areas, it is handy.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Hi there:

    I have a pretty nice treadmill that I use at home but not as nice as these.

    I’m 65 years old and have always been into physical fitness. Because of this, I’m in good shape for an old man! Have kept my weight the same for decades and that is likely due to running outside and on my treadmill as well as the other exercising I do.

    These are high-quality treadmills and I especially like the features like the 12 mph speeds and 15% inclines. I know with these kinds of features a person can get a great workout.

    The XTERRA Fitness TR150 Folding Treadmill is a good one because of the padded deck. I noticed that when I used my treadmill my feet and legs still took quite a pounding because it wasn’t padded.

    Anyway, these treadmills are great looking and these features are top notch.

    Thanks!

      Hi, Christopher and thank you.

      You obviously the same ideology as I do. That is to mix running outside and on treadmills. This combo works very well. Depends on weather, like when it is frozen ground is better to use a treadmill and when the sun is shining, you should go out, mood, etc.

      About the inclines. Mix it and use it a lot give you an extra benefit. When you run outside, it´s not flat all the time, and it takes more energy in training to use it. It doesn´t make a long time to feel the difference.

      I like the XTERRA Fitness TR150 a lot. The display is so clear, and the speed range is good.

      If I can help you with anything e
