Bowflex treadclimber v.s. nordictrack incline trainer
Most people buying a treadmill want one with an incline (also called treadmill elevation).
It used to be that incline on a treadmill was a bonus feature. However today, most motorized treadmills come with an incline option. The difference seems to be in the amount of elevation available.
If you're looking for an economy treadmill (under $1000) you'll probably find most treadmills only come with a 10-12% incline (however that can be enough for most people - especially for those new to treadmill exercise).
When you get into the mid-priced treadmills ($1500+) you'll start to see elevations of 12-15%. And in most premium treadmills you'll find inclines of 15%.
If you're in top shape and really want a challenge, then you'll probably want a 15% incline. However if you just want a treadmill for gentle walking, a 10% elevation might suit you perfectly.
Of course, the mother of incline treadmills is the incline trainer. This is a treadmill that also gives you much more elevation than normal treadmills - up to 30%.
You've probably heard about the Bowflex Treadclimber. The Bowflex Treadclimber is a hybrid stair climber and treadmill. TreadClimbers have two separate, smaller treadmill belts (one for each foot) that you walk on. These individual belts also move up and down, meeting every step you take.

Weight systems are cheap and small. You can find used BowFlex on CL for $400. You can get a treadmill at Play it Again for $500. Whatever you need you can buy, cheap as a used product. People buy these all the time, use them for 30 days and then stop. They spend $2K on a system and sell it two years later for $400 after using it 10 times.
Then you can use for free and sell it when you are done. No travel time, no membership, no fees, and you have an asset, not a monthly bill.
