I'm a big, old guy with 35 years in the gym. At 260 pounds running has always been my nemesis, causing knee and hip pain. I own two other traditional treadmills and use them only for incline walking. My Air Runner has me actually running again, pain-free! I love the natural feel, the strike of my feet and the awareness of my glutes and calves actually firing. People seem to be daunted by the price point, but I think this machine is worth every penny.
Browsing online for $2,000 to $2,500 treadmills, it's easy to find great choices for your home gym or light commercial fitness center. This price class features plenty of high-end cardio trainers built for years of daily use. Most shoppers can find everything on their treadmill wishlist too: Our best treadmills in this category are above average in terms of performance, electronics, special features and customer service.

Fantastic machine. I paid for assembly which I recommend. If you are trying to get fit, your first machine should be a treadmill and this should be your second machine. Why? The motion is unique, a more vertical oval than horizontal one, and this gets you fitter, faster. For the upper body, those looping handles mean you can place your hand grip in all kinds of positions and work different muscles of your back and legs/glute. The possible variants crush most ellipticals out there. The motion is smooth and the footprint is small for a machine of this kind. Between a treadmill and this I would take this, as I can always jog outside, but I can’t get a stair climber meets elliptical on my own.
Generously apply the silicone lubricant to the deck surface from front to back using a back and forth motion. Repeat from the other side.  ONLY APPLY THE SILICONE TO THE HALF OF THE DECK THAT IS CLOSEST TO THE MOTOR.  If you apply lubricant to the back half of the deck you will run the risk of lubricant getting onto the rear roller, which can cause belt slippage.
Most elliptical trainers work the user's upper and lower body (although some models do not have moving upper body components). Though elliptical trainers are considered to be minimal-impact, they are an example of a weight-bearing form of exercise.[2] They can be self-powered by user-generated motion or need to be plugged in for adjustment of motion and/or for supplying their electronic consoles and resistance systems.
Some manufacturers produce durable commercial models made to withstand frequent use in a fitness club environment, at prices that can be in excess of $4,000. Inexpensive models are available for home use at prices starting around $200. More expensive elliptical trainers – especially commercial machines – are more likely to offer more features such as extensive programs and better adjustment options.

Advanced applications are so called omnidirectional treadmills. They are designed to move in two dimensions and are intended as the base for a "holodeck". There are several solutions which were proposed and research continues because some issues remain unsolved, such as large size, noise and vibration. There are parallel developments being conducted by researchers working on projects sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs to create virtual reality environments for a wheelchair trainer in order to promote therapeutic exercise.[18]
The forerunner of the dumbbell, halteres, were used in ancient Greece as lifting weights[1][2] and also as weights in the ancient Greek version of the long jump.[3] A kind of dumbbell was also used in India for more than a millennium, shaped like a club – so it was named Indian club. Despite their common English name implying an Indian origin, the so-called Indian clubs were in fact created in the Near East. Properly referred to as meels, they are first recorded as being used by wrestlers in ancient Persia, Egypt and the Middle East.[citation needed] The practice has continued to the present day, notably in the Varzesh-e Bastan tradition practiced in the zurkaneh of Iran. From Persia, the Mughals brought the meels to South Asia where are still used by pehlwan (wrestlers). British colonists first came across Persian meels in India, and erroneously referred to them as "Indian clubs" despite their Middle Eastern origin. The design of the "Nal", as the equipment was referred to, can be seen as a halfway point between a barbell and a dumbbell. It was generally used in pairs, in workouts by wrestlers, bodybuilders, sports players, and others wishing to increase strength and muscle size.

As its name suggests, this type of treadmill can be folded up and stored away to save you room, making it ideal for smaller spaces. If walking is your thing, one of the more budget-friendly models should do the trick. If you do some occasional running, however, consider a higher-end folding model, as it'll generally have a sturdier construction and more advanced electronic exercise programs.
