Default Treadmill question

Hello!

I have a stationary bike (which is collecting dust),free weights, plus exercise DVD's. I'd REALLY love to purchase a treadmill. Can anyone tell me one they might recommend or what I should look for in buying one?

I have just started my lifestyle change, therefore my exercise routine is currently quite simple. I do WATP (only on the 1-mile right now) daily, and do weight lifting 3x weekly.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone ? Any help on tips to buying a good one and what's essential and what isn't would be really really appreciated.

Look at the "stickies" posted at the top of this page... There is an article from Consumer Reports rating treadmills and ellipticals that should answer a lot of your questions. Here's the link:

Jan 2005 Consumer Reports includes treadmills and ellipticals
