We are planning to buy a treadmill since our condo
does not have a gym !
Any suggestions on a good one that does not make a huge hole in our pockets ! I presume it is a good time to buy one with the GSS on but the options are numerous and I do not have a clue on what to look for since I have never had the need to buy one , just use the one in the gym ... Few of them seem to be priced at 3000SGD at Kettler - yikes !
If it's for weight loss, you are better off with an elliptical machine as they burn more calories and work more muscle than the tread mill. It is also easier than running, you may have seen them, they look like a skiing machine with handles.
You will burn twice as many calories than a tread mill and it's very good for endurance building also.
The tread mill is also okay, though calories burnt in one hr will be much less.
To get a good deal, you should ask around at any of the GYM's for a second hand one, they normally get sold off after a while and have 3 month guarantees. A good tread mill will set you back 3k and the cheaper ones break down more easy
AIBI is okay, you can pick them up secondhand on Gumtree for $500 to 600, though be careful when buying, take someone with you that understands what's going on, if no guarantee is given. I wouldn't spend more than that on one to be honest, if you are not a fanatic like myself.
People easy get tired of working out, unless they have mind over matter, only dedicated people will understand what i mean. I'm actually looking for one myself just now, but i want a proper industrial one from the gyms, not those they retail to consumers, there is a big quality difference and price is roughly the same in the secondhand market
