Main thing is Service available in your vicinity. Else make sure you learn how to do it yourself, little cleaning and oiling.

Find the Weight Support that a Treadmill can actually handle. The one we have was supposed to handle 110kg but as soon as we run 6km/hr and above, it stops with a jerk and throws error.

Another important thing to notice is Emergency Safety Key to prevent seniors from hurting accidentally.

If there is incline mode, ensure the floor where you are going to install it doesn’t have even minor slope like the corners usually have. If there are electrical fluctuations at your place, then buy a separate stabiliser for it.

Good info bro,
In my experience its better to run on road/park and get some outside fresh air in the morning/evening.

Before buying any exercise equipment, one should make sure, that they are not a lazy person by nature.

Otherwise, you are wasting money on something that takes away a lot of space in the house and gathers dust in one corner. Keeping it clean itself takes away the little energy that is left in you.

If you are lazy by nature and lack motivation to do a regular exercise and wants to stay fit in a sedentary lifestyle, stop eating dinner and cut down on sugar.

Thanks for sharing, what is the reason of such error? And what about motor capacity I should consider? Thanks again for great info.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts but I already have Bodygym EZ ELLIPTICAL BIKE AXIOM II which I am using daily for approx 8km. I prefer these equipment over outside walk because they give time flexibility to me.

Elliptical /cross trainer is much better as it trains different parts of the body and easier on knees/ joints than Treadmill, you should explore it as well.

Oh sorry My bad, I did not notice it, just wondering why do you need a treadmill, I believe all elliptical comes with different programs and settings so should be able to simulate walking/running?
I believe the one you have is a elliptical bike which works on similar concept but totally different than a cross trainer.
