Im thinking of purchasing a treadmill to do a bit of exercise. Just wondering does anyone know of a good brand or particular one to purchase? I'd preferably like to buy one from either Big W or Kmart, or Target etc, so that i wont have any hassles if there are problems with it.

I think the ones from the sports shops would be a bit better quality than the kmart/target/big w kind of ones. But then it depends how much you are going to use it. If you're like me and intend on giving the thing a smashing every day for many years, then spend a bit extra money. But if it's only going to be every so often, then maybe a cheaper one could be alright.

The other thing is to make sure that you are comfortable on it.... ergonomics wise. If it feels good to use, you'll get on it a lot more often :D

i brought one off ebay and i love it.. it cost just over $600 and its a professional one like u see in the gyms.. i know people who have spent over $2000 at a shop for a treadmil and they think mine is alot stronger, wider and has more functions then theres...
have a look at ebay they all come with a couple year warranty..
