For the money that this treadmill costs, it surely isn't worth it. I owned the machine for less than six months when it needed to be repaired, and this was with normal use of it. As far as its performance, it is a good machine that helps you stay fit, but if you do not want to replace it veery quickly, I would say go with something else. I also think that you can get the same quality workout in a machine that costs half as much as this one. I made the mistake of falling for the hype, so do not be like me! The specs of the treadmill: * Provides a total body workout that keeps the heart pumping * You can walk or run with this machine * Burns calories with each step that you take Performance This tread climber does the same thing as other machines that cost half of the price. Ease of Use It isn't hard to use, but this machine does take some getting used to. Durability I paid a lot of money for a treadmill that didn't last for a full year.
