From time to time, your Treadmill Sensei likes to bring up questions that you, his loyal readers, ask him time and time again. Usually I end up writing an incredibly witty and insightful article to answer the question for everyone who has asked it and for those of you who haven’t had a chance to ask it yet. Over the past year there has been a question I’ve been asked time and time again — and it’s been a question that I’ve been unsure how to answer and, even more important, a question I wasn’t sure if I should answer it at all.
The question in question is “where to buy a good treadmill or elliptical and where to get a good deal.” I’ve tried to refrain from pointing anyone out in particular beyond placing some links at the bottom of my articles showing off the best price I know of online. But, beyond that I tend to shy away from focusing on any one dealer (online or offline) in particular.
What I’ve decided to do is to start posting deals I find online — coupons, rebates, sales and so on. If another treadmill “review site” can post when CostCo is having a deal because of their backroom agreements with Icon Fitness, then I’ll at least try to post some useful savings for you on quality equipment.
The best deal of the summer is probably the one at Elite Fitness Equipment. If you’re looking for a discount treadmill or discount elliptical, then check them out. They have a solid reputation for shipping quickly and for quality customer service.
What I’ll try to do if time allows is set up a coupon section here on the website to display what coupons and deals are floating around on the internet at any given time. In fact, if you, my loyal readers, find any great deals then feel free to pass them along and I’ll post those as well. Look for a new review later on tonight.
