Which Treadmill Should I Buy?
I am debating getting a refurbished Inspire Ironman - 2006/2007 model for $900 CAD or a 2004 Alliance 910 Treadmill.
This treadmill is 3 years old and was used by one person (110 lb female) for running and walking. It has not been moved from the room it was first set-up in, in great condition, with heart rate function with both strap around chest and on hand rails.
What would you recommend?
I am approx 200 lbs, wife using it mostly, 135 lbs.
Thanks in advance,

Thanks for your question.
Hard to say.
I am not a treadmill expert, but I'd be careful with getting a second hand treadmill.
You never know how it has been used, how often etc.
Keep in mind that a treadmill can need its' maintenance and so, what seems cheap at first, can become more costly quickly.
Heart rate function on the treadmill is a nice-to-have, but if you have your own heart rate monitor
, then it's not a necessity.
