I didn’t run before. I don’t run much on it now, at the moment I much prefer doing the hiking classes using the incline.
It wasn’t the best communication from them to be fair and it all got muddled further when reported by the media because of that. The only recall which applies to the UK is related to screens loosening and falling off - based on 12 reports of minor injuries. Nothing as serious the problem with the model recalled in the USA (which is the Tread+).
When I first ordered delivery was seven weeks, then after one week more slots opened up and my total wait from order to delivery was under three weeks. It might be faster now because they can’t deliver the treadmills.
The challenges and achievements keep me coming back for sure. I had a basic treadmill maybe ten years ago and christ it was boring. Got rid of it pretty quickly! With Peloton the instructors constant talking make the time fly by which is great. I think I know most of their life stories now, the dating history of one, lots of useless facts about humming birds from another and so on. Another talked about how he watches the YouTube videos of songs he selects for a playlist for a workout, and how ridiculous those videos are. It really sucks you in, which I also need to keep me coming back! It is expensive, but the execution is extremely good.
I think the standard bike had a reduction recently, and pretty sure they will come and collect it if you change your mind in 30 days for a refund.
