Default Treadmill

Hello all

I have decided to get a good treadmill... Mu current weight is 325 lbs so of course I need to get a good one... I found a place where they sell re-furbish commercial models price ranging from 1,300-1,900... Price is step but for a commercial I would imagine it would last.

Does anyone here use a good treadmill that has lasted them for a good price.. Of course weight capacity is a factor.

Start date: 5/13/14- 332 lbs
5/30/14- 328 lbs
6/6/2014- 327 lbs
8/1/2014- 325 lbs

Sorry this is going to be kinda vague, but my mom has had the same treadmill since i was 8, and I'm 21 now. I don't know what the brand is or how much she paid for it, but the next time i see her i'll be sure to let you know. And the weight capacity was great, my aunt would come over and use it with no problems and she weighed 426.

Goal 1: 209 (25 lbs lost)/Complete!!!
Goal 2: 199 (Out of the 200s)/Complete!!!
Goal 3: 180 (No longer Obese)
for every 5 lbs lost.

I own a Landice L8 treadmill and love it. It even came with a lifetime warranty on everything. 500 lb weight limit. I bought it because Consumer Reports had it as their number one treadmill for a couple years in a row. I had an old Horizon one before the Landice and I didn't care for it at all.

I have a Pro-form treadmill that has to be more than 10 years old (we bought it when we lived in a different house and had it then). I think we paid about $900 and it's still going strong. Granted it had many years off. :P

I started out weighing more than you (and I'm shorter) and struggled to get even 10 minutes in without wanting to die from the struggle. I wish you lots of luck.

I have a Weslo Candence 840. It's an older model that I bought used about 15 years ago from a little old lady (true story). I've used it consistently over the years and it still works great! I did have to replace the belt and rollers last year, but it now works like a champ. I would definitely buy another.
