If you've seen the price of new treadmills and other exercise equipment, you may be suffering from a bit of sticker shock. Buying a second hand treadmill can be a good choice, as there are lots of hardly used treadmills not being used, that are fairly inexpensive. It can be difficult acquiring used treadmills locally, but on the internet it's a bit more easygoing. Of course purchasing online has it's issues, but here are just a couple of good tips I use.
Finding a lower priced treadmill, is painless, the trick is in finding one at a acceptable price that hasn't been misused, and still is plenty usable. It's no problem to find a online retailer with used and new exercise machines.
If you do a little work, you could discover some local fitness clubs will sell their aging exercise machines. Getting these treadmills can be a little risky though. Treadmills from gyms have seen a lot of miles, and abuse. The gym customers that use these these machines could care less if they fall apart tomorrow. You'll save a few dineros to be sure, but you may be shopping for another treadmill sooner than you planned.
Buying a treadmill from a place like eBay can be smart, just check that you get a warranty. A treadmill you buy through a private sale, is more likely to have seen rare use, and will have plenty of miles left on it. If the person your buying the treadmill from is nearby, it makes sense to inspect the treadmill face to face before purchasing it.
