Faithful worker & walker for a year with my treadmill Review by cgabs

Obviously this is a big investment in $ and a great investment in overall health. I've been using my lifespan treadmill in a professional office for over a year. It is very quiet and the noise does not extend past my office door. I do have to use a headset however for conference calls, otherwise the speaker phone does pick up a bit of the whirring noise and my foot falls. I walk generally about 1.1 to 1.2 mph while working. After moving office locations (and the treadmill being bounced around a bit I expect, I noticed that my treadmill was rattling - customer support was great and after tightening the nut holding the motor, all was quiet again. I do find that many times I stand and work and forget to turn my treadmill on... when I am diligent, I can easily get 5-7 miles in daily while working and find that I avoid that afternoon desire to nap. I highly recommend this treadmill
Outstanding for my personal health improvement program Review by JDG

I purchased the 1200 for my standing desk.

This is one of the best investments I've ever made.

I use it for several hours each work day, sometime for up to 30,000 steps. I have increased my energy and stamina using just this. I've been on a personal weight loss program and have seen significant results (minimal change in diet; weight gain was mostly from being sedentary).

I use the speed between 1.8 and 2.4; it is barely noticeable and has no negative impact on my work. In many respects my work is enhanced.

I used to run to the fridge when a difficult client would call. Now I just crank up the speed! (I rate the clients by the speed setting -- most are a 1.8 ... others are a 4.0! The higher the speed, the more troublesome the client. This is a much better way to handle the stress than running to the fridge.)

I just purchased the standing-desk bike for my brother and I'm considering doing the same for myself to change-up the workout.

Very pleased with the construction, quality, usability, performance. Equally pleased with both purchase experiences: bought the treadmill from my local retailer and the bike direct from Lifespan.
can't use it as shipped Review by TC

Today I received shipment of a TR1200-DT3 treadmill for use with my stand up desk. I am very disappointed to have taken it out of the box and set it up only to find that I must first lubricate it with silicone spray. Not just any silicone spray, but 100% silicone with ZERO additives. I ordered some along with the treadmill and it has not arrived. So I just went to two hardware stores, an auto parts store and Walmart to see if they carry additive-free silicone spray. Nope.
As today is Friday, I expect to get it next week. I suggest a couple of tweaks to your business model. Either include a small amount in the box with the treadmill, OR send the lubricant immediately so it arrives before or with the treadmill.
TOO BULKY FOR AVERAGE OFFICE Review by michael

Too bulky for average office. Suggestion to do measurement before getting this model
Quiet, exercise while I work. After a week you don't even notice it being there. Review by BB

Next 'step' in my get fit routine. Last year I purchased a standing desk and I love it. In fact I can't travel and sit at desks for more than a few hours before getting jimmy legs.

My next step was to literally start taking steps, adding the LifeSpan TR1200-DT3 has helped. I now walk at 1 -> 1.5 mph all day long.

I will drop 1 star because the software sucks, bluetooth support with iPad doesn't work and there really should be a power off/on button on the command unit. Rather than having to reach up over the front engine cowling to flick a switch.
Great build; would be great at a stand-up desk Review by Holly

Love this treadmill. It's quiet and I like the smaller visual footprint. It appears to be well built and arrived in great condition. Rather than buy a special desk, I took the casters off my $50 Staples single-armed, adjustable laptop table and slid it under the front. Too low for work, but holds a laptop nicely for reading or watching videos. I had to re-level and adjust belt, but working well. I had trouble getting the controller to go into personal settings mode so I could set it to remember the speed when paused, but eventually got it. I added a pad under the treadmill with a sheet that I can pull over to cover it up to keep out dog hair, carpet fibers, and dust. While it has wheels up front, don't think of it as super mobile because the wheels are pretty small and it drags, at least on carpet. I also thought I might store it standing up against the wall, but realize it's too much trouble except occasionally (you have to disconnect all the cables). This is not for someone wanting to train for a marathon, but I can do a run at the 4mph top speed. I also like being able to slow it and add dance when listening to music. The time flies by on this! Would love one for work, if only I had the money!

I've been using this under my bar-top desk for 5 weeks. I love it! Everything I dreamed it would be. I started doing 5-7 miles per day. Now I'm pulling about 10 everyday with the same effort.
Good with some annoyances and real issues Review by Mark Twain
Price
Value
Quality
Real problems:
* The console unit half dies on me, often. I hear it make kind of an electrical power down sound (like an inner sound of the unit short fusing or something, not a programmed sound that chimes during power off). When it does, the unit goes blank, but a dim light stays lit. No buttons work. I need to manually power off and on the treadmill up to a few times for it to come back to life. This is very annoying -- it happens when the treadmill is *not* in operation. It has never happened in the middle of walking, always when the treadmill is stopped.
* Recently it started making some sort of light rattling sound when walked on. Not a scary "this thing is grinding and breaking right now" type sound, but still kind of an unnerving sound for a $1,000 treadmill I've owned for 6 months.

Annoyances:
* Power switch is on back of treadmill, meaning you have to crawl under your desk to turn it on and off.
* Every time you pause the treadmill, it will start up again on the slowest speed, and you have to bump it back up to the speed you were at moments ago before you paused. This often causes me to jump off without pausing so I don't have to do worry about getting it back to how I had it before it was paused.

To clarify, you can use the bluetooth connection with your computer without paying for any subscription, which I do. I've attached a screen shot of the Mac application which an be used without a subscription. It does not save your stats, but allows you to view them without looking at the console in real time.
Nice for walking and working Review by Hard Man

Nice little working treadmill. My wife owns a personal training studio and she thinks the quality is excellent. Very solid and smooth. The auto shutdown is annoying as hell (need to figure out how to override it) and I still can't get the software working (not necessary to operate). The little yellow bezel around the emergency shutoff on the control panel was bent out when I received it. Works fine but looks broken. Not sure if there is an easy way to replace it without replacing the entire panel.

Typical questions asked by friends:

Can you run on it? Only goes to 4 MPH and made for walking.
Are the controls easy to use? Yes, a bit cumbersome but relatively easy - not quite as quick and responsive as the good ones at your gym.
Does it offer elevation? No.
Do you like it? Yes, very nice for walking while working
Is it quiet? Pretty quiet - no one has commented about it.
Very good treadmill for office walkers Review by Jeff

Very good treadmill for office walkers.

I work from home, and for the last year I have been walking while I work. I had an old treadmill that I removed the arms/console from, and attached an Ergotron monitor arm to my desk (this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BRBX3SW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1).

This has been great. Lost weight, feel better etc etc.

My old treadmill died last week, so I read some reviews and ordered the Lifespan TR1200. It arrived yesterday, so my review is only based on 1 day of use.

It is very quiet. My old treadmill was too loud to be used if I was on a phone-call. This new one is whisper quiet. I will be able to use it all day long.

It feels very smooth. I did apply silicone lube before first using it, and will re-apply every 2 weeks. The belt feels solid, no slop, I did not need to adjust anything prior to first use. It just feels good walking on this thing.

The 20 inch wide belt is nice. My old treadmill had only a 17 inch belt. The extra 3 inches makes a huge difference. It doesnt feel like I am walking an a tightrope!

Lubing the deck is a pain. The belt is slightly wider than the area between the foot rails, so its hard to dig out the edges of the belt. To apply silicone spray lube, its a real challenge to lift the belt up. I am going to have to lube it every 2 weeks, as I average 6 hours a day. Not looking forward to doing this.

In use, the controls are great. First thing I did was go into the "engineering mode" (explained in the manual), and turned off the safety-start feature. This allows the treadmill to resume from pause at the same speed it was at prior to stopping. My day goes like this:

1) Turn on treadmill in the morning by attaching safety key and starting at 2MPH

2) If I need to stop walking, just step off and the treadmill stops after 20 seconds. No need to push the stop button

3) To resume, just hit Start button, it starts back up at 2MPH

4) At the end of the day, record my total mileage. Its nice that the console stays on all day even when paused, so your total mileage is not lost.

5) remove safety key at end of day to make sure kids dont play with it.

Contrary to some other reviews, I find the button-pressing to be at a minimum.

I did 8 miles yesterday, and now that I can use the treadmill one phone calls, I will probably average 10 miles per day. Its a great way to work.

5 stars.
