"So a change of plans from my last post. After my confidence treadmill began to falter I announced that I was going to dive deep into my pockets and buy the Tread, which I did. Upon doing so, I learned that my wife's company had declined her…"
Just wanted to say that after five months of hard use, and I mean hard, the motor on my Confidence treadmill is about toast. I could still squeeze out some more miles, and will; however, I've gone ahead and ordered The…"
"I'm interested in seeing how much punishment the Confidence will take. I opted for the cheaper model more out of interest to see how a walking station would work in my day. So far it's been fantastic!"
"I have two treadmills. The Confidence and a high-end Livestrong T10.
I set my Confidence for 2.0, and counted the steps for a minute. I then did the same for the Livestrong. When I compared the two, I walked and additional 2-3 steps per minute with…"
