Mostly happy with a few negatives for your consideration

Review by E. A. Kennedy

I primarily run outside several days per week and purchased this treadmill for hot or rainy days. The delivery person was kind enough to carry the heavy box to the back of my house and leave it in my walk-out basement. My husband had a reasonably easy time putting the treadmill together. It is quiet and seems very sturdily built, which is surprising at this great price.
There are some negatives, but I am not sure what treadmill in this price range would not have some negatives:
1. Speed is presented in miles per hour instead of minutes per mile, which is what runners use to set goals. The manufacturers chose to include a pedometer instead, so maybe this treadmill is primarily aimed at less active runners/walkers.
2. The treadmill is very heavy and cannot be moved by two adults on carpeted floor, so there is no way to reposition the treadmill or move it out of the way.
3. Your height and weight can be easily and permanently set on the machine using the website and a USB drive, but a 2nd user will need to enter weight manually on the machine each time and will not be able to use the Fitness Club.
4. The Fitness Club website is slow and has not always transferred all of my data from the USB accurately, so I will just track my own stats using another application (e.g., RunKeeper).

Good function, just okay construction

The treadmill is good for the price, but there were some issues. Some of the screws that came with the treadmill were already warped and no extras were provided. This is also a shame since some of the screws are really tiny and go into awkwardly posistioned holes. I have relatively small hands, and my sister's were even smaller and we still had a tough time not dropping the screws. Some extras included would have been good. There was also no lube or USB included. Considering that you need both of these, they should have been included (luckily I read reviews and bought lube beforehand).

Also, some of the holes were just a bit too small or out of place. And I think it would have been impossible for me to put this thing together by myself.

The machine works fine (shakes a little even when my 170lbs sister runs on it), but I had such a headache putting it together that I can't give it 4 or 5 stars.

good purchase

sturdy good quality overall. delivery was good bc they called and double checked to make sure someone there and the guy was nice. but they are not allowed to bring in to the room you want, or even the house, they were going to leave it in garage, be prepared to have extra help to drag it in with a dolley. its all in a big heavy box about 300 pounds . the computer set up is confusing but I am not as computer savvy and didnt really care about that part, it wont work when I download the software, but all i cared about was running on it , very sturdy,even has speakers attached for your mp3. good luck in putting it together, the manual sucks for assembly, so I asked my friend who is machine savvy to do it and he set it up in a total of 1 hour. all the parts came. there was only one scratch on one of the plastic panels. there is a service you can order to have someone put it together but it was around $250.had it now for about 3 weeks only and have been using it 3x /week

Excellent home treadmill

I had been thinking of getting a treadmill for several years but couldn't make up my mind. My most recent research led me to this one, which seemed to be what I was looking for and was also on sale. So far I am extremely pleased. It was delivered on the day and time specified, easy to assemble, folds up easily, the motor is quiet, it's easy to operate, has a 15% incline, everything I was looking for. The only drawback I can think of is that there is more pounding noise when running than on the treadmill I used at the gym (and I am not heavy), but for the price this is a very minor complaint. Highly recommended.

Very happy!

Shopped around for the best pricing on a good quality treadmill. I went to fitness shops by me as well as shopped on line. we are very happy with the Lifespan TR 1200i. Got a great deal on a new one. We received it within one week of ordering. The packaging was not in the best shape, but the treadmill inside was untouched. The delivery was just to our door, but fortunately it was easy to unpack and carry in pieces down the stairs to the basement where set up was a breeze. The directions were very easy to follow. The treadmill is very user friendly, quiet and extremely sturdy!!

Finally bought it

I've now owned this treadmill for about half a year.

It's a terrific treadmill as long as it is working. It has needed two repairs while still brand new. This leaves me just sort of hoping it will not break down. If you buy this treadmill know that it's fantastic. It's compact, stable and good looking. It probably is the best performer in the price range. What it doesn't have it bells and whistles isn't missed. The most important thing is the performance of the machine itself. So if you buy this please buy an extending warranty. If you buy it from a physical store I think they may have their own warranty plans. The company was great to deal with and responsive when their were problems. It's just when the one year warranty runs out I fear the machine won't keep running. The company itself does not offer an extended warranty on labor and you just kind of have to wonder why.

Love This Treadmill - Great Buy

I was looking at Treadmills for a few weeks doing all kinds of research and decided to take the plunge on this one. The Price was good, the reviews were great across the board, not just here on Amazon.

I received the LifeSpan TR 1200i the day after the 4th of July. It was delivered by an OLD Indian couple in a Ceva van. The guy wheeled it up to my door on a hand cart and helped me guide it inside the front door. He said I had the White Glove Treatment (which I guess means they set the thing up for you and take the remaining packaging away with them) I told him it was fine, I would do it. I didn't pay extra or anything but yeah, I told him No Thanks. He seemed pretty happy about that haha.

It's a pretty large box and definitely heavy. I pushed it across the carpet into another room fairly easily. Set-up was easy and I just took my time with it and I think it took me just over an hour to get it all put together.

I've had the Treadmill for just under two months at the time of my review today and have put roughly 90 miles on it. It still runs exactly today as it did on day 1. The base is sturdy, the arms feel a bit cheap, like plastic but is no bother to me. The left arm has Incline/Decline buttons and the right arm has Speed Up/Speed Down buttons. I love that. The display is pretty basic which is fine by me. It has a nice ledge below the screen that fits an iPad perfectly. However doing that covers the display screen on the Treadmill. I did a little MacGyver action and added a Velcro strip ABOVE the Treadmill display and to the back of my iPad (it's in a case btw). So now I have the Treadmill display in plain sight and the iPad at perfect eye level above it.

Well that's all I have right now. It's a great buy for any casual runner/walker etc.

I think it's fantastic.

I bought this treadmill in Jan. 2012, and I absolutely love it. When it arrived I asked the delivery guys if they would take it across the living room into the back room, and they agreed in exchange for a soda. Small price to pay, though I wish I would have had them lay it all the way down -- they left it on its side. I'm a small woman (5'0", 115 lbs), and when I rolled it over it was heavier than I thought, and nearly fell and landed on my foot. Once I got it open I was able to assemble it myself, but couldn't lift it out/off of of the box & styrofoam packaging and had to recruit help.

I have since moved twice, and while the thing is cumbersome (I had movers), it easily survived and has a permanent home in my new house. No damage to it, so I think it's pretty sturdy. I've had no problems with the treadmill itself. Only two quirks:
1) the USB automatic update to their "fitness club" doesn't work with Chrome, and I must have spent hours uninstalling/installing the software, reading FAQs (it's not mentioned on their troubleshooter), and had to send an e-mail. It took a few days to get a response, but once they told me to use IE it worked fine.
2) I purchased a New Balance heart rate chest strap based on some others' comments about different brands working with this treadmill, but I would say the treadmill only reads it about half the time. I know the chest strap functions, because it came with a watch, but you have to be uncomfortably close to the console for it to pick up the signal accurately. When you drift further back it cuts your heart rate in half, like it's only picking up every other signal, or not at all. If you want the heart rate tracking, it might be worth it to buy their proprietary chest strap -- if it doesn't work maybe they'd give you your money back for it.

Otherwise I think it's amazing -- I run/walk on it probably 3 times/week in the winter, and maybe once a week in the summer.

Excellent Treadmill!

This treadmill is fantastic. It was easy to put together for two people. It took no more than an hour. The treadmill is quiet and it offers good impact absorption. My boyfriend has a bad back and this treadmill does not aggravate it when he jogs. I would say this treadmill gives the larger more expensive treadmills a run for their money. I couldn't be more happy with it. I haven't even used the USB yet and gone online to set up a program, I have been doing my own for the last month. I would defintely suggest this treadmill to anyone. You can't go wrong with the price, how quiet it is, ease of putting together, ability to fold up, the amount of preprogrammed routines, and the USB to have your own health profile and program your own personal routines on your computer. Like I said, it's fantastic.

Excellent treadmill!

I purchased this treadmill in April 2011 and am extremely happy with it - definitely well worth the price. I love all of the features that this treadmill has, especially the USB and membership with Interactive Health Partner (a website that you can upload all your workout data to). You can customize the USB with your info and pop it into the treadmill, so the calorie burn can be a little more accurate - the USB automatically keeps track of your time, distance, calories, etc, then you pop it into your computer when you're done and upload the data to the website. Absolutely love that feature - it's so motivating and it makes it much easier to keep track of your progress. One thing I would recommend is to get the chest band heart rate monitor that LifeSpan has (I bought mine directly from the LifeSpan website since Amazon didn't have it)- the heart rate monitor on the handles of the treadmill never registered very well for me and I found it awkward to keep my hands on the handles when jogging/running so that it could register heart rate.
