I am the Treadmill Sensei. For more than twenty years, I have been a service and repair tech for treadmills and ellipticals. If you work out at a Southern California gym then there is a good chance I have installed, maintained or repaired the unit you are sweating on. My warehouse, the DOJO, is always filled to the brim with Precor, Life Fitness, Sole, Spirit, Horizon, Cateye, Star Trac, Matrix and more. Ellipticals and treadmills cover every inch of free space in my home and office!

As I have time I will be reviewing the units I work on in an attempt to guide you, my fitness pupils, in making the best equipment purchase for your money. With hundreds of treadmill and elliptical units for sale nowadays such a choice is not an easy one. Why should you look at Spirit treadmills or Precor Ellipticals? Why avoid the Gazelle or anything made by Icon (Proform, we’re talking to you!)? Why it’s not inappropriate to ask a treadmill manufacturer how big his rollers are? You’ll find the answers to these and other questions as I unleash my superior knowledge and wisdom on the web.

I get my hands dirty on cardio equipment so you don’t have to!
