You might have better luck looking for a treadmill.
Check Craigslist and Freecycle.
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
OK, for that budget you're better of joining a gym for a year - you won't get anything good for $300. You don't need a really powerful one since you're not that heavy, but you're still less than half the budget of a decent used one. So yeah - check craigslist & local ebay listings & see what you can find used. Lots of people buy them & never use them, so your odds are pretty good at finding a decent one.
With PiratesSayARRR, you're not going to get a decent TREADMILL for $300, unless you buy a used one from someone who's selling it cheap just to get rid of it. A lot of people buy a treadmill, use it two or three times then let it sit in the corner gathering dust. So a "used one" is likely to be in almost new shape.
i have never used one and i only tried once in my life for 5 mins during my hotel stay 5 yrs ago.
is TRADEMILL really an option to shed some pounds slowly?
Like the Pirate said, running outside is free ;-)
But yes, treadmills are a good alternative to this if you actually use it on a regular basis. I put ~1000 miles per year on mine & would never be without one. That's where I catch up on all of my TV shows.
