How Much Does a Treadmill Cost?

If you wish to stay in shape by running or walking, you may find it hard to find time or you may not have an available walking area, especially during the winter season.  Joining a gym can be costly and inconvenient, but purchasing a treadmill for your home can be a great way to stay in shape on your own terms.  Treadmills allow you to exercise while watching television, in a comfortable temperature, and at any time of the day.
