treadmill in hdb flat

Recommended Posts

Thinking of buying a motorised one for my flat but will the pounding affect the neighbour downstairs?

Any bros with experience?

 

Dont want to end up with exercise machine you can only use when neighbours are away.

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.

chances of it become a white elephant is high.

I had a treadmill in my hdb flat for 5 years... the latest time that I ran was at 10.30pm.. no complaints from neigbhours. So I think it should be fine.

on the other hand, a blow up doll is less likely to discarded after a few uses [laugh]:D[laugh] but still provide ample excercise [laugh]:D

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]

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..

seriously, is much better running outdoor as i find running on treadmill boring.

 

of course the plus pts are being able to exercise in bad weather conditions. why don't consider getting from any of those bros here who own one but now being a while elephant... win-win [laugh]

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.

not so much for me... more for the CO and mom-in-law.... they are exercise-averse and its showing. let them walk on it watching tv.

 

i might borrow time to time to train for ippt. set to 14.4km/h, let the music play and stay on for 10min.... [angel]

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
