If you only have $500 to blow on a treadmill, Walmart gives a decent value. Don't expect anything other than a walker to be able to use this treadmill long-term, but if you baby it these can run. Thank God they left everything simple on this one. The lack of complexity may help this one long-term
Our advice is to get something more substantial but not everyone can afford a better machine. With this in mind, if you are a runner and this is the best you can afford, keep hitting the streets and run away from this one.
