I've got a threadmill at home also. Other than leaving a huge footprint on the real estate in my matchbox size HDB, there's no issues with the noise. It's a lot more healthier jogging on a threadmill than breathing in the car fumes on the pavements. And it's a lot more convenient being able to jog in the comfort of your own home rather than going out to find a jogging track or park.

I had one for 7 years, no issues, or complaints from neighbours. But the wife uses it only once every leap year, and I prefer to jog in the park near my home. If you prefer fresh air, do it outdoors.
Otherwise, like mine, it became a giant clothes hanger; aka white elephant. rolleyes.gif

haha i agree!

my mum bought the treadmill a few months ago and im so excited at the prospect of doing my own running at home without the need to run to a nearby park for my jog..

but at the end of the day, i think i only used the machine 3 times since the day it was bought. haha! n the irony is im still going to the park to jog.

anyway to TS, dun worry about the noise, my mum jogs on the machine often in the evenings.. no issues or complains from neighbours so far..

Used to have one - after a while, I prefer running outdoor - natural running stride plus wind to cool down. Even if the weather is bad, just do some Hi intensity intervals (HIIT) at the corridor or MSCP. Sold it away after some time.

i have 1 at home from aibi ..more than 7 years...total number time on the treadmill over the 7 years - less than 50.

My suggestion -save the $$. It will be a white elephant

I think the suggestions about trying first at a gym before buying is a very good idea.

I also did quite a lot of running on threadmills, before I considered buying my own.

At the gym we can fully appreciate the use of a threadmill, or any exercise equipment, and see if it is suitable for us, and whether we like using it. Only if we regularly are willing to use at a gym, and then find it inconvenient waiting in line at the gym - then there is a business case for buying our own.

My own threadmill, I am using it about 1 to 2 times a week, regularly. As long as we can make it a habit by using it regularly for at least 2 x a week, for 3 months without giving up - I think a threadmill will NOT become a white elephant. Of course, YMMV.
