Comments: I did a LOT of research before I bought this machine, and I'm very glad that I decided on this model. I'm not a marathon runner--so I can't verify if this treadmill would for someone like that--but I'm an avid walker [I workout about an hour a day] who keeps a pretty brisk pace, and the machine is just perfect for me. Assembly of the machine only took two hours for my husband and I, which was great, and the machine is sturdy when it's in operation. The only downside--and it isn't really a downside when you think of what kind of equipment it is--is that it is VERY heavy to move if you're trying to get it up or down some stairs. You'll need a friend or two to shift the motor/belt component, believe me. Other than that, there are no other warnings that I can offer. This is a great treadmill for the price, and I would recommend it to my friends.
