    Wow! My always skeptical male friend was utterly surprised (his word!) at the workout this mini tread gave him. He’s a tough guy, but needs to walk daily for circulation. Doctor’s orders! Walking is not always easy in the rain, the heat, or in traffic. What a great way to get in really effective movement at any time, in any room, in your own home! Love it!
