Kind of reminds me of when one of ex's bought a $1000 treadmill. Didn't see the point when you could just walk out your front door and run around the neighborhood. Same thing with my brother, had a stair climber machine on the top floor of a three story house. Just doesn't make much sense to me, but I prefer to be outside.

HAAAAHAWHA! I would laugh so hard if I saw one of those.

That's almost as cool as segway police chasedown.


#6

Amazing! That's just like walking outside. How'd they do it?


#7

Lmao!! I wish I could see that outside my house


#8

That must have come from the Department of Redundancy Department.


#9

Probably the most useless invention since the solar powered torch.

It is the first treadmill that you can take with you when your running. I wonder if there going to come up with a battery version so you can drive your treadmill on the highway while running on it.

I would like to see it going up a steep hill; or maybe better might be going down a steep hill.

reminds me of the flintstones

Oh my God, how much do I love that machine?? I totally need one so I can outrun a porsche.

Snookered, I don't know about your ex or your brother, but I use my $1200 treadmill several times a week because it's safer than running outside in the dark at 5-something in the morning (injury being my worry) and because I can pull on shorts, a sport bra, and my Asics and be running in approximately 3 minutes, without having to concern myself with weather or gear.

I can sprint, do hills, whatever, and then 35 or 45 minutes later be peeling the shorts and bra off while the water heats up in the shower.
