Hi,
I wonder if you know at Taman Perindustrian Sime UEP, near the Faber Castell biggest pencil area, there is a building call Transmark. You can try the treadmills there.

A good electrical treadmill can be very expensive but of cos it worths the value if you use it regulary. Forget those cheaper one for home use, the `motor' just could not last.

I rather go for those manual teadmill without motor or just join any gym as lot of offers now

Dont mean to be discouraging but I know of at least 5 people with such underutilised equipments. My suggestion would be(if u havent) to build the diciplin and routine at a gym. See how u like it, the routine I mean, then invest for the convenience at home. Now that someone has mentioned of the gym at 3K is only RM 80.....

Hey thanks. I think my post was not shown in "new posts" bec it was posted 1.15 a.m. That's why no response until now.

Actually my wife's idea bec not convenient (and risky) to walk alone in the open. Saw one upmarket U.S. made "Pro Form", but after googling found that it was inferior brand in the U.S.

By the way, "Tryagain", I am in Penang. :D

having a treadmill at home would be a dream for me too. Currently I use it at Celebrity fitness. Signed up for 3 yrs. Have utilised it for more than a year now. Still another one + year left. Will then think of getting one at home.

The one they use there is Life Fitness. According to a neighbour, who bought one a few years ago, it cost almost RM20K.

I must say that the Life Fitness machine is really good. Have not checked out the actual price yet as I still have more that a year left before decision time - to continue with the gym or get one at home.

There are various brands of treadmills. Could someone shed some lights on NordicTracker, Reebok and HealthRider brands. Which one is more reliable - in terms of usage. eg how long before one needs to change the treadmill running belt, motor life, etc. Budget around 3-5K...?

Appreciate any help on this.TQ!

Cheers!

Lately I've seen a few. Apparently the imported U.S. made Pro Form runs on 110V and has a separate local made transformer attached. Healthrider supposed to be from U.S. but can't be, bec it runs on local 220V without the need of a transformer. Was told made in Taiwan or somewhere. Nowadays we make life very difficult bec of too many choices. I am moving into a new house (retirement) and getting a number of new items yet to be decided like mattress, fan, fridge, etc.
