Anyone have a manual treadmill...?

don_na_naOctober 3, 2004

Do any of you have a manual treadmill such as the EZ Walk Treadmill from QVC?

If any of you have a manual treadmill, would you please tell my how you like it? And give any advice you have about purchasing one?

Which is best, manual or automatic?

I have one from way back.....The Jane Fonda Treadmill. It is a good alternative to the very expensive motorized treadmills. The fact that mine folds up, also helps. The difference (and its a big one) is that it takes a lot more energy to manually move the belt. Your workout is much more intense. Keep the underside of the belt well lubercated with WD-40. My came with a music cassette that helped keep me motivated. If you have no time for the gym and don't want to shell out thousands for a professional one, then the manual is the way to go.

I have one. It's really rough on your joints. It takes alot of pounding to move it. You should wear VERY cushy shoes
