With the money spent on this, you are better off either going outside or buying a gym membership. Neighbor purchased a similar one, bragged about it's apple connectivity and all the virtual features it had like running a marathon with other people. She walked on it to "get started" and swore to have jogged "practically a mile." She used it for a month and than needed help moving it into her basement because she plans on using it later. That was $3,000, a monthly membership (that she's probably still paying) and over a year ago. Sold it on Craigslist for a few hundred dollars a couple of days ago and complained that she could only sell it for $250. Now she has a Elliptical machine and I'm sure that will go to good use.
