Guys what would you recommend between Rs.40-50,000? And where should I buy it in Mumbai/Thane? Is it advisable to go try it before buying?

On a side note, is Afton a good brand?

Afton is a good brand. Their Sole and Fuel treadmills are nice and sturdy.

You can get a nice bargain on the previous year models. But they usually quote high prices so be ready to bargain. Whatever they quote, start bargaining with 60-70% of the quoted value.

May sound ridiculous, but i did get nearly 15,000 off when i purchased a treadmill last year.

Thanks for the tip. I thought Sole was a brand by itself though?

^ @Evil:

Yes, Sole and Fuel are brands made by the same Manufacturer. And Afton Fitness, in addition to their treadmills, are dealers for those brands in India.

The cheapest Sole I can find online is the Sole F 63 for Rs.83,000.

What should I try to get it for offline after negotiating? Any chances of getting it for about 60,000?

I got the same last year for around 65k. Since 2014 model might have come now, you can definitely go and bargain for a better deal.

Tell the dealer, that your friend got it in another state for a lesser price and ask him to offer a better quote. Check with 3-4 dealers.

Good Luck!!!

I am getting this one today:
http://m.snapdeal.com/product/cosco-...ptical/1397093

I visited a local sports goods shop and finalized this one.
Against the sticker price shown in the link, the store had already marked down the price and after a little bargaining they also gave another 15% discount, so the final price will be just south of 17k.

They are all good, dude. Absolutely brilliant to hang clothes!!

Humour aside, I have had Afton for more than 8 years. Very reliable. Decent service.

GO for one with an option to change the inclination too. Check that the display has all the options you need - mine did not have a 'pace' indication.

Hi, Any suggestions on a good elliptical trainer for Home use?

Have checked out multiple stores in Delhi/Gurgaon, but have not been able to zero in on a single product. The budget is around 20-30k

Have checked out brands like Fitking, Viva Fitness, Fit Line, Joggers Park etc.

Important to have a good stride length and stable/sturdy frame.

I recently tried using a metal wheel orbitrac but was thoroughly disappointed with the quality of the equipment, thus returned it.

Please recommend

Hi, Does anyone uses the below treadmill?

LifeSpan TR 1200i Folding Treadmill

I am suffering from cervical and lumbar disc issues and have to start walking/jogging. Unfortunately my surroundings are not good to do it outside. This treadmill seems to have very good shock absorbing capability. Is this a good choice? or is there a better alternative? Please advise. I can spend up to 1L as this will be regularly used by me and my wife.

Metro Cinema in town. There are few sports equipment shops around. I get mine from there only.

Default Re: Bodybuilding - Exercises and Supplements

Hey, not sure if this is the right place to look for this. But does anyone on here happen to know of a reliable company from which to source an AC motor treadmill for home use. I say AC motor because DC motors cannot reliably be run for more than an hour nonstop I've been told.
I had a Bremshey Path DC motor 2.5 hp, that kept burning out over years of use. Am finally in the market for a new treadmill, but I can't seem to find a good brand that is reliable and sub 70,000 Rupees.
Any info would be helpful, location being Bombay.
Thanks again
Anghammarad.

Folks, could someone here throw some light on these 2 treadmill models that I have been looking into. I read through this thread, no mention of Welcare anywhere, nevertheless.

Budget - 30K

http://www.welcareindia.com/index.php/product/wc2222/
http://www.stayfitindia.com/i-series...i-2a-treadmill

Has anyone here used or checked on these earlier? Any usage reports?
