My Treadmill, My Friend

My husband set aside the unfinished area of our basement as our home gym.  We have equipped it with a lot of stuff so if we chose to, we could workout downstairs vs. having to get in our cards and trek on over to the gym.  One of my most favorite pieces of equipment is my Proform 785SS treadmill.  I purchased it back when we lived in a town house in 2002 and LOVE IT!  It is over 10 years old and still going strong.  I like that it is extra wide so I don’t feel confined when I run on it and it actually is pretty sturdy when I pick up the speed.  Another cool thing about it is it never allows you to lower the incline beyond 1.5!  I was initially shocked by this but when I figured out you shouldn’t get on a treadmill with 0 incline anyway in order to best mimic the outdoors, it made perfect sense.

Like I said, we have a bunch of equipment but this by far is my favorite.
