Walking is still considered one of the most beneficial cardiovascular exercises for people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels. As a fundamental form of aerobic training, walking has numerous physical benefits for the heart, lungs, and circulatory system, while also increasing muscle tone and burning fat calories. Treadmills provide a convenient way to regularly exercise in all weather conditions in the comfort and safety of your own home.
From beginners just starting an exercise regimen to advanced athletes looking to maintain their fitness level, anyone interested in getting and staying in shape can benefit greatly from regular use of a treadmill. Treadmills allow you to determine the pace, distance, and complexity of the workout based on your needs, all while watching television, talking on the telephone, or reading a magazine. Much easier on sensitive joints like the knees and hips, treadmill walking and running surfaces are typically long, padded platforms that allow ample room for a long stride and comfortable, low-impact walk or jog without the harsh contact of a concrete surface.
While many different types, styles, and price ranges of treadmills exist, many of them offer unique features like a fold-up design for easy storage, an electronic display monitor showing speed, distance, workout time, incline level, and burned calories, and EKG grip pulses to monitor the heart rate while exercising. Regardless of the simple to complex features you may choose, treadmills offer an array of aerobic exercise opportunities that will provide long-lasting beneficial cardiovascular results without a commute to the gym or a jog in the rain.

Things I like about my C44:
It folds, thus taking up a small footprint of floor space when not in use. Rough estimate without measuring, you'll need a spot about 3' by 3' to store it when you aren't using it. The lock that holds it closed is sort of hard to release, which I think is a huge plus, as I babysit a toddler.
Quick-stop key (probably standard on all treadmills)....it clips to your belt or waistband, and then inserts the other end into the treadmill. The treadmill won't turn on without it, making it handy to take with me when I leave the house, so I have no worries about my children playing on it.
It seems sturdy. I'm not lightweight, in fact, when I bought it, i was just a few pounds under the 250lb weight limit, and it doesn't strain under my weight when I use it. I have personally used it to speeds of 3.5mph. My husband, about 200lbs, and athletic, runs at speeds up to 7mph and it, and it doesn't strain then, either.
Incline: it has MANUAL inclines of 3%, 6% and 9%.
What I don't like:
I use a Polar F6 heart rate monitor while I walk. I start walking on the treadmill (which starts the clock on the C44), and then I start my F6 monitoring. When my workout is over, my F6 ALWAYS has more time logged than the treadmill does. I've tested my F6 against stopwatches, and it appears to be dead on, so apparently the timer on the treadmill doesn't keep good time, which frustrates me, and makes me wonder if it's tracking the mileage correctly.
The thumb sensor for heart rate monitoring: it's horrible, no two ways about it. It jumps all over the place, within a span of about 2 seconds, it will measure my heart rate at 83, 144, and 199. From what I understand, all sensor type heart rate monitors are fairly poor, but I've also read that they can at least give you a close estimation of your heart rate. This sensor aboslutely CANNOT do that. If you buy a C44, definitely invest in a chest-strap heart rate monitor for accurate monitoring, don't rely on the treadmill's sensor.
The incline: Being totally new to exercise (ie, I've never purposely exercised in my life!), I thought it was great that the C44 had 3 levels of incline, and that would be perfect for a beginner like myself. Well, walking on a treadmill is not the most exciting thing I've ever done, and I've found some awesome treadmill workouts online, to vary things up a bit, but unfortunately, they all require incline use, and the C44's incline feature leaves much to be desire in that aspect. In order to adjust the C44's incline, you must turn off the treadmill, fold it up, and then manually adjust the leg height. Most treadmill workouts do sequences such as 2 minutes at 0%, 1 minute at 3%, 4 minutes at 0%, 2 minutes at 3%, etc. By the time you get off, adjust the incline, and get back on, you've lost your heart rate and just about the time you get it back to the targe4t zone, you've got to hop off and adjust again.
So, my advice on the C44.....if you can possibly afford a better treadmill, then save your money a little longer and get something better. If this is absolutely the best treadmill you can afford, get it. it DOES work well, and is certainly better than nothing. Even though it has it's flaws, the C44 HAS given me the motivation to get off my rump and get moving.
What I did want, however, was one that offered ease of use and portability, just in case I needed to put it away. I also wanted one at a decent price, and that's exactly what the Weslo Cadence C44 offered.
Thanks to a little inventiveness on my husband's part, we were able to build a wooden platform on which I can rest my laptop so I can read news or even write while walking on the treadmill. This Weslo version offers speeds low enough to make that possible, although the motor at first seemed rather loud at the lowest speeds. We fixed that, too, by removing the motor hood and gluing in a rubber baffle (much like the one surrounding most dishwashers), then lubricating it with the recommended silicone spray.
Ever since then, I've been able to combine typing while walking on my treadmill (which, incidentally, I'm doing right now). The beauty of that setup is that I no longer have to set aside specific time to exercise: I can combine it with things I'm already doing. Granted, I'm not getting a cardio workout while plugging away on my computer at a mere 1.5 mph, but I *am* getting exercise. For cardio work I just remove the little wooden platform and ramp up the treadmill's speed -- something that's as easy as the push of a button on this machine.
I should point out that I'm short (5'2"), so the length of the belt is no issue to me. The belt is easily long enough for my stride, whether walking or running. My husband is 6', though, and he says he's also comfortable on this... provided he doesn't set the speed so high that he's struggling to stay near the handles like you're supposed to.
About a week after we set this up (a process which took a little over an hour), we needed to move it out of our family room because we had company coming. This was easily done -- the treadmill folds mostly flat and has a plastic L-shaped catch to keep it from opening while you roll it on the wheels attached to the base. When folded the machine fit neatly under our bed and was just as easy to bring out and put back up once our company left.
I love this thing, and I love its price. Granted, it may not have all the bells and whistles that a fancier, more expensive version does. For instance: a built-in fan would be nice, and the base of the cup holders are foolishly tilted so that the only thing you can use in them are sports bottles with caps. But it IS perfect for the new treadmill user -- like me -- and provides a good workout without unduly straining one's budget.
