I don't get why it's so strange...but ok I'll think about taking it after freshers. What about my weight tree? it's only got three sets on it. I don't mind joining the gym but I already own everything I use so it seems silly to pay out for something I already have...

Because most people don't have rooms big enough for a socking great treadmill? (student rooms are generally pretty small) Because most 18 year olds can't afford to fork out for a big piece of equipment? Because, actually, 18 year olds who care enough to even go to the gym are comparatively rare (compared to 19/20 year olds?)

My treadmill is not "socking great", it's very small. I wouldn't take a big one.

And well it's not my fault if I care about my fitness and weight...it seems more stupid to me to PAY for a gym when I've already got sufficient gym equipment.

I'm just wondering if it's worth taking my own treadmill to uni? I don't want to leave it at home and it's only small, would it fit in a standard uni room?

Think about it, you come to your halls of residence/house, you are amongst a lot of other yougnsters lugging around big suitcases/randomc rap and theres you with your treadmill in one hand (daddys hand) and your suitcase in another.

They all STARE at you.

What do you do now?

1: Hope the world swallows you up
2: Go home
3: Say " **** yeah *****es I've brought a drinks conveyor for the bar"



2 will get you lampooned, there is a hidden pot of gold in the other.

Thank you! If you already have it and it's BEEN paid for why the hell would you waste your student loan paying to use a gym one? it makes no economical sense to me at all.

You don't need a treadmill or gym to keep fit! :rofl:

Have you never run outside before? Cycled outside before?

I don't have a bike, I drive everywhere so there's not really any point...I don't like running outside because normally I'd have to plan a route, I find it easier to just run on my treadmill and see my distance and calorie burn on the display

Seriously, how much floor space are you expecting? Have you seen the room you're going to be staying in? Halls are tiny, even with a small treadmill, if it even fits, it's gonna mean you have to climb over it to get from your bed to your desk or door.

:rofl2: This thread is amazing. OP just take it with you as you clearly aren't listening to anyone in this thread and seem to be accepting the mockery. This has to be a wum though

I'm only guessing, but I think people are totally right with the first impressions thing. Lots of people probably would think of you as that girl who had a treadmill if they saw you lugging it in, then again if it was folded up and not recognisable it'd hardly matter, or it could maybe be a conversation starter.

Assuming you had enough floor space, which you might well not, if you could fold it up under your bed or something, it probably wouldn't be too much of an issue space-wise if you only had it out while using it, BUT it could still be really loud and annoy people. Also, going to the gym could be more sociable and help with making friends, which might make it worth paying for?

Take the weights, they're small, quiet and won't make people think you're a douche with more money than sense who brought a treadmill/will break in and wreck it when the ******* noise starts to get on their nerves.
