I was kinda like "we dont need a treadmill" when danny started looking at Craigslist...but he wanted one and it would be our xmas gift to one another. So he found this Nordictrack one that was 1500 for 800...he got them down to 600. I was still kinda like "thats a lot". But he and my dad picked it up. I just ran on it - I love it! Worth it for sure! It has a built in fan, ipod hookup, big speakers, great big screen....so awesome. It folds up too but it really sturdy.
