i like the way you put down mains powered because if it was battery powered would need about 56 batteries

Used to have one of these shook the whole house so not very neighbour friendly if you are in a semi detached etc.
Good price though so heat added

looks good...

Yes best not to use it other than on the ground floor.
For the love of God do not buy this if you live in a flat and have neighbours below you.

Funny want to buy one to lose weight I am 19 stone so cannot use the product I want to use to lose weight the irony.

Probably best not to run and overstress your joints with repeated impacts. Not as convenient but cycling or Swimming are a safer bet. Good luck.

My mum had this delivered on Saturday. They had it on sale at £249. Now its showing as £199 as a normal price. Is it worth calling up customer services? ( item was purchased in store for home delivery).

If that doesn't work, buy a new one and return it on the old receipt

Audiobooks, mp3 player, and go walking on these lovely summer nights. Worked for Steven Fry.

Having said that I have the previous version of this and I am about 16 1/2 stone, and it got me into good enough shape to stagger round a half marathon. As previously mentioned, big mistake to use it on anything but the ground floor, apparently when I had it upstairs it sounded like the end of the world to everyone else in the house (lots of thunder and swearing), moved it to the garage and everyone much happier.

I went from 21 stone to 15 stone a couple of years ago, only real cardio I did was on an exercise bike as running when you're heavy will do your knee's no favours.
So I'd suggest a bike instead.

Also, most exercise equipment says around 15st max, however that's because they haven't tested with heavier, the exercise bike I used was only £80 and also said 15st max, and it's still going strong now.

Decent price for an entry level machine. I've got a home gym set up in the garage and the exercise bike is a York Aspire and of decent quality for the price I paid for it, and the cross trainer is a York, but not Aspire, and that's bullet proof.

Treadmills aren't everyone's cup of tea, and you'll be surprised how much room they take up and indeed how heavy they are. But if you're a beginner to enthusiastic amateur this will do you though, and you could spend much more to discover you don't like them. If you envisage really getting into running it may be worthwhile getting a machine that can go faster. My sister gave me her old treadmill with a 12km/h top speed and I blew the motor in three weeks because it was always maxed out. My current Branx machine does 24km/h so I know it's not being strained by me tramping along at 15-16km/h on long training runs.

And I echo other comments about noise and vibration. Mine sits on a concrete slab floor so doesn't go anywhere, but the constant pounding of your feet make a real racket.

lmao...... that's exactly what I thought. ;-)

There seems to be the attitude in this thread that treadmills are for running, they are great cardio workouts for walking too.

You could walk on it first tho!! Then a light jog as the weight reduces #notallforslimjimsyouknow!

Been after a treadmill for a while, looked at secondhand market mostly but for warranty purposes this looks a decent shout & worth paying a bit extra for.

music? audio book? Nothing?
