    Any treadmill is a waste of money unless you want to run properly indoors...not fast walk....proper running.
    Just like 02GF74 said.....if it's for walking then save the money or spend it on some comfy trainers/walking boots and get outside.:smile:

    How about going out together for a walk...you can motivate each other then. :smile:

    Its just time thats the enemy. I'm ok personally, I'm lucky enough to have a gym membership and I go down there lunchtimes if I'm not cycle commuting (which has been frequently, recently :smile:)

    Also, we have a young daughter who needs taking care of and I do understand the Wifes reluctance to walk on her own when its dark. (we both work)

    How about an exercise bike? or a rowing machine. Both will give a more effective overall workout.....rowing machine especially.

    Thats a good idea :biggrin: I'll suggest that. She has a X trainer as of 2 days a go so its just something to suppliment that.

    The rowing machines give a good cardio workout (or they do for me anyway :biggrin:) I'll put it to the boss :smile:

    Thanks for the help so far :biggrin:

    Running's better overall than bike. Running is a bellybuster.

    But non-powered treadmills are teh suck. Avoid like the plague.

    best choice their.
    They are great for a cardio vascular workout.
    I'd have one myself were it not for living in a flat....I think my neighbour would get cheesed off. :biggrin:
