I've been looking around for an affordable good quality treadmill for about 2 months. After reading the reviews and seeing a model at Walmart, I went ahead and purchased this one and take the risk. I am 100% happy to discover that all the negative comments were inacurate. If you follow the instructions, it shows you exactly what to do to assemble this machine in less than an hour! ASSEMBLY: You will need a phillip screwdriver and an adjustable wrench. (Things everyone should have?). You will need a friend because it is heavy especially when you get to the part of connecting the belt portion to the legs. It took us 48 min to assemble only because my 2 year old keeps wanting to help. ;) After assembly, we plugged it in and I tried out one of the preset workout and was very pleased. The presets are very good and the machine very sturdy at high speeds. I am 5'8" and 185 lbs and I had no problem running on this and still felt like I had plenty of room. Im looking forward to using this treadmill everyday while it saves me an hour drive to the track! The console has room for the pair of 1lb weights that it came with as well as my water bottle, iphone, and even a book if you wish to walk and read. ACCESSORY: I also purchased a treadmill mat to go with this machine. It helps protect my carpet for when the treadmill is moving during its incline/decline adjustments. Highly recommend you grab 1 for $20 at walmart. If you want to fold the machine, the single locking pin is ok. However, I have no plans of folding this machine. It has its own corner facing the entertainment center so I can workout and watch TV if desired. For $377, it is definitely the best buy! It walks, it runs, it has manual and preset modes, a long belt for those long stride, wide enough with plenty of room for my size, air cushion is great on the knees, solid and very sturdy at high speeds! And most of all, its well under my budget!
