You will like the Trimline T360 treadmill if you are just starting to exercise and finding how easily you can get your daily dose of cardio.
While we can’t fault the outstanding warranty, the powerful motor, or the cushy deck, the appearance of the T360 isn’t going to attract the hard core treadmill enthusiast.
