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.
Literally a Life Saver Review by HOU

TREADMILL
I have been using this treadmill at work for the past two weeks. I wasn't sure how much I'd walk. I started out slow (1.5) and over the past 10 work days have worked up to (2.5-2.8) and clocked 86 miles, which feels AMAZING. I have found the treadmill to be easy to operate and smooth to walk on. The downside are the apps/tracking methods. I am manually entering the information on the website software because I have not been able to get the bluetooth to work properly. The website logs you out every few minutes, which is totally annoying. The software deficiencies and the inaccurate dimensions are reasons for the loss of a star. The treadmill was longer than than the website stated and I was not able to position it as originally planned because it wouldn't fit. I have compared the step count to my Jawbone Up. They are not wildly different, so at least I know it's in the ballpark of accuracy.

FEELING THE BENEFITS
Within the first two days of walking at work I was no longer needing my carpal tunnel wrist splints (perhaps its coincidence, but I have to think it's because of all of the walking and improved circulation). I am totally exhausted at the end of the day, which makes the commute home great, because I enjoy sitting ... even if it's in traffic (I always make sure to walk the last hour of work). I've lost 10 pounds over the past two weeks, which is a bonus (although I do expect it to level off). Overall, I just feel great after a long day of walking and working. My back got pretty tight for the first three or four days, but that's happening less often. I am sleeping like a log at night.

DAILY GOALS
As for walking at work, I have found it helpful to set goals for each day, which include at least 15,000 steps, three hours and/or seven miles.... 20,000+ steps and 8+ miles what I tend to end up with. I have found that I'm super efficient. Walking and typing, talking, writing, etc. is not too hard. I do tend to slow it down when I make or take phone calls. I plan out my day so that work that requires sitting, like sifting through multiple hard copy documents, I do during my sit breaks-- right before or after lunch or late afternoon when I take another half hour sit break before I walk hard during the last hour of work. I positioned my chair on the other side of my desk so that I just take my wireless keyboard & mouse and put the monitor on my desk. Maybe one day I'll be able to walk all day, but I'm not there yet.

I'll be sure to update when I have 6 months under my belt, but I am totally loving this thing after two weeks!
Treadmill Base Used with Crank-Adjustable Desk Review by Natalie

I've had this treadmill since October 2013 and really love it. I found a sit-stand desk at a liquidation warehouse that I pair with it, so I alternate between sitting and standing during the day. The treadmill functions great -- it's not loud, it's smooth. As others have said, the Bluetooth functionality is poor since it syncs only with LifeSpan's app. I have a Fitbit One, which is not recording the steps I take on the treadmill. I wish the two would sync. Others have mentioned being able to adjust the programming so the machine starts at 1.0 mph. The owners manual that came with my treadmill is really skimpy -- no info on the Bluetooth or how to change the start speed. This website is not easy to search, either. Overall, though, the treadmill is well worth the money.
Treadmill is great, controls are OK, but be sure you understand the Bluetooth Review by Mark

I've been using this for about two months now, paired with a Jarvis adjustable height desk. The treadmill itself works well. It is smooth, adjusts easily and is relatively quiet. The controls work well, too. Though a bit convoluted to accomplish, you can customize some of the functions. For example, after pausing, the treadmill defaults to starting up at 0.4 mph. You can change this to start up at whatever the last speed was, but it is not straightforward. You have to hold down two buttons for three seconds to get the function menu, then cycle through numbered functions (F001, F002, etc.) to get to the one you want. Without the manual, there is no way to know what each function does.

The control box itself is large, with a cord coming out the back. It takes up a lot of desk space. I built a small shelf sticking out below the front left of the desk on which to sit the control box. The second issue I have with it is the safety key (emergency shut-off). I understand the need for it. The issue is that it does not just stop the treadmill. It resets the control box, so that you lose all recorded progress for the day. It is so sensitive, that I've accidentally bumped it loose several times.

The last issue I have is with the Bluetooth capability. The descriptions on the Amazon page and the LifeSpan website say you can upload your information to their website for tracking and to join teams / compare results. They also say you can download a Windows app. What is not made clear is that the app is useless unless you upload all your data to their website. I was not interested in sharing my workout history, but I was very interested in being able to track my history on my computer. As it turns out, I cannot do this without also giving LifeSpan all of my data. The app requires uploading the treadmill data to their website to be able to download results, rather than creating anything locally...
