Gold's Gym Crosstrainer 600 Treadmill
I weigh 250+ lbs and have used this treadmill steadily for over 5 years. It only cost around $600 at the time I bought it at WalMart and I have used it every day. I use it for walking on an incline at about 3-5 miles per day. It had held up very well but it does require ongoing maintenance. I have replace the drive belt 2 times and the walking belt 1 time. I lubricate the under belt with Lifespan 100% silicone liquid about every 3-5 months or so. I do not recommend Gold's Gym models for running. After about 5 years of fairly heavy duty I think it is time for me to move up to a commercial model. This $600 treadmill served me over 5 years of heavy use...not bad. The weakest part of this treadmill has been the drive belts. I am always having to re-tension the belt to keep it from slipping. The motor is great. The electronics are great. The belts and lubrication are the difficult part of owning a treadmill.
