Depends on budget and what you will be using it for.

How many miles a year do you run?

I’ve gotten two.
Both form Facebook marketplace for stupid cheap. Sold them on there after I outgrew the treadmills

re: Interested in getting a treadmill
SmellslikeKevinBacon,

Couple years back I was creeping up in weight , unhealthy, and a poor example for my daughter.

Treadmills ALMOST always end up as a waste of money, except for the few & far between.

It 100% helped me dedicate myself to getting fit and I fell in love with running & changed my life.

When I purchased it my wife and I decided to get something nicer so if it went to hell and I never used it I could sell it on Facebook marketplace and suffer the smallest loss possible.

I ended up getting rid of it after a few hundred miles to run outdoors and sold it for a very nice price. We went with a higher end Bowflex because people knew & respected the name.

I had a True for 14 years and never had an issue with it.

Same here. I’ve had mine for about the same time . Was ~$2k new and still works great

I ended up with a used Planet Fitness branded Life Fitness commercial treadmill recently. Those models go for $6k brand new- got it for $250 it has some slight squeaks here and there but works like a champ considering the price I got it for

New to using one. I’ll mostly be using it for cardio after weight lifting.

re: Interested in getting a treadmill
If you aren't going to be putting that many miles on it, i wouldn't stress too much about what type. However, if i were in your shoes I would buy a used one from a gym that is closing or that regularly updates their treadmills. Orange Theories regularly update their treadmills and sell the used ones for like $500. A used commercial treadmill will far exceed anything you get new for the same price.

Be prepared to do you own maintenance. As I treadmill owner I have become very familiar with the inner workings of my treadmill.

Use FB marketplace. I have one that I mainly use for incline walking. I rarely run on it.

They don’t have roads or trails where you live?

It’s hard to simulate inclines in most of Louisiana

That’s why I use a treadmill- for incline walking . It gets the heart rate up without overtaxing my joints or CNS

I use my rouge echo and street bike for high intensity stuff - as well as lift weights.

Waste of money and space, unless you already have a home gym room. Just go outside and walk and run.
