You like walking, but unfortunately getting out for a stroll is proving troublesome.
Winter is almost here, and like many people, you may be searching for the best and least expensive option for how to keep fit during those cold winter months.
So, you know that you want a treadmill, particularly now that the nights are drawing in, and it’s maybe getting a bit too cold and wet to want to be running or walking outside in the elements…but… space is at a premium.
The good news for walkers is that they do not need to have the expensive treadmills that runners or joggers will require.
Since sitting down for hours on end gives you cancer or something, you have (correctly) decided to rectify the situation and save your arse (literally it seems) by investing in a treadmill that fits under your desk.

OUT OF THE BOX
At 119 pounds it would be fair to say that this is not the lightest of treadmills on the market today, but also it is not quite the heaviest either.
