I cannot wait until I get it here. It is just a manual one because it was cheaper. my husband got a credit line with an online store and he let me get one and he is getting a massage heated chair for his bad back and neck from a car wreck so we will be in much better shape soon!! I am going to set my treadmill up in the living room so I can run whenever I watch tv. instead of sitting and snacking. Everytime I get to where I want a snack I will run instead.

hey good for you! i wish i had the money and the space for one. i think it would be good for exercise. my parents have one but they hardly ever use it. oh well, i live in a house with a ton of stairs, i guess that will have to do.

We really do not have the room , but I am going to move my computer desk into my sewing / bedroom and then set the treadmill where it was in the living room. Our last house had stairs too and I would run up and down them for exercise. That worked great.

I saw one on the Doctors show that was a treadmill platform that you could put your computer on a platform at the front and work on the computer while you're walking -nice, but very expensive.

that would be awesome. I would never get off of it if I could use my computer.

I think it is a good idea to keep it in the living room . I use to have a treadmill in my living room and would walk on it everyday. I stayed in good shape and never felt like I was overweight. If I splurged, I would just get on the treadmill longer. Then it ended up breaking. Now we have a new treadmill, but in a new house. there is no room for it in my living room, so it is in the basement. I always think I will get on it tonight, but never do:(

yeah that is one reason I am putting it in the living room - so I see it every day and use it. I will have no excuse. I can watch my shows while walking or running and not have any reason not to use it.

Well the treadmill is a good type of exercise and is realy practical when it is raining and you cannot go to walk outside. I have an air walker but I think the treadmil burns more calories, however I do aerobics at home I have some dvds, however it is good that you keep in shape you feel less stressed and really healthy.

We have been thinking about getting one too. Both of us need to get moving and I know if we had one my hubby would use it at home. It's just a matter of finding one at the best price LOL

Wow I wish I could get one of these, I know that I would use it a lot, it's just the issue about the money and the space which makes me think there's not much point in buying one.
