It can be hard to choose the right treadmill, but it's extremely important for your success. Nobody wants to go out and spend a bunch of money on a big honkin piece of health equipment that just morphs into a coat rack in the corner of your living room. However, it can be deceptively tricky to find just the right one. Value is not the same as price. Getting a cheap piece of crap treadmill from Walmart is a recipe for disaster. To put it simply, using it is going to suck and since you won't enjoy using it you won't get the results you want and will inevitably banish this "Satan's Sidewalk" to the depths of hell errr your basement.
