When buying a used treadmill it's definitely buyer beware. The only thing I knew before I saw this video was that I wanted a model I'd actually want to run on. It takes 3 minutes comparing a "home model" with a "health club model" to know that difference.

With my $600 budget the only way I was going to get quality was to buy used.

Mark's video gives you a quick checklist of things to look for when buying, so that you can buy with some confidence. I made a checklist from the video and it was smooth sailing.

PS The great news is that there are a lot of models out there that were mostly used as clothes hangers. Definitely look for one of these cause you'll find it.

Thanks Mark!!
