Has anyone bought a Bodytrain T1000 / T1200 treadmill ?

Hi

I was planning to buy the Bodytrain T1000 / T1200 treadmill . Was wondering if anyone already owns one or has any idea if it is good ?

Below are the links for the products

Cheers

Hi runnerx,

I don't know much about treadmills but I noticed those 2 seem to have a maximum speed of 12 km/h. That's 7.5 miles an hour. Is that sufficient for you ?

Good point - I think you'd be looking at 16km/hr to ensure the thing remains useful when you improve (assuming you aren't already running 6-minute mile runs)

Thanks for the replies guys. Unfortunately those are the ones that fit my budget. Can you suggest a decent treadmill or point me to a nice site where I can buy a good enough treadmill for a decent price around 250 - 300 quid.

Absolutely no idea on its quality, but...
Decathlon - WESLO - Cadence M6 WESLO - doing cardiovascular workouts on an occasional basis (up to 3hrs per week).

I wouldn't bother looking for one with a HR monitor handle thing, as it's bloomin awkward to run and measure you HR on those handles, lol. I would suggest focussing on the most basic of attributes... speed, incline, belt width (how much room you have on there). All the fancy displays, 150,000 different programs etc are nice extra's, but essentially not needed to train

i suggest to look for a threadmill which is much heavier otherwise the threadmill will shake whenever you run on it.
