I know most everybody says a treadmill under 1,000 or 800 is junk.But i just cant afford it,can i get by for a lil while to lose this fat on a $400-$700 treadmill from yes i know... sears,wal mart or a sports store, probly used cause they are expensive there ...?Also how about a ab machine from nydumbbells.com i think or that ab lounge they advertise on tv,looks like it works but who knows..

I know this may not be the answer your looking for, but why not join a gym for that price, or like a local YMCA? You'll have access to tons of good machines, and more than just treadmills

I don't have the time to go to the gym and slightly shy too i guess.Have a lil gym here with a extra bench and dumbbells and stuff.. And will use it several times a day cause it will be right here.

I'd see if I could try it out at the store. That way you know what your getting.

Otherwise, you could probably find a really nice used one in the newspaper. This is the time of year when the "new year's resolutioners" begin to fall off.

if you dont have the money,dont buy a treadmill. go for a bike instead. it will be a lot better than doing notihng.you can have a really good workout on an indoor bike

I just had a idea. WHat about those old stationary pedal bikes. Get one used for free than buy a 50 dollar quality seat and find a way to put it on there.

Best would be to run outside. Get a good rought were you run directly away from your house so far. Then you have to run back.

go for the stationary bike. no need to buy a used one,but if you find a good deal,then go for it. a nice bike doesnt cost that much

ya, why not just go jogging or biking......

run outside??

I do run outside right at the ballpark by my house,it has a track too. But a mill and bike sounds good to me inside...

Run down the streets. Are you insecure that your neighbours might look?

No dude but i could lose more fat if a mill and bike was in house and use it 3 times a day..

well if that is the case, you souldnt buy it. that is way too much. you will be disappointed with the results if you overdo cardio. believe me,i've been there,done that.
stick with a program that you will be able to follow on the long term and dont try to get to your goal to fast.there are no quick fixes

If you lose more than 2 pounds a week you are losing to much weight. If you are really over weight that can probably go up to 3.

Ok, i will get on it in the morning and at night after supper or somethin to burn a few off before bed.I know that isnt too much.Im not talkin a hour at a time,20 or 30 minutes.
