Purchased a treadmill that I found on craigslist and put it in the garage. Because of the hours I work and the hours the gym is open I found it impossible to set a time each day to get cardio in. It is the rainy season here in Oregon so running isn’t an option. I paid 370.00 for the treadmill and it is commercial grade.
