Great treadmill

Review by John Dykstra

Prompt delivery. Easy to assemble. Exactly as advertised. One thing to warm you about. We used our old treadmill for 8 years and put about 15 miles per week on it. When I ran on the new treadmill, it was harder for me to run at speeds I was running on my old treadmill. I think the old was a little "gracious" and the new was a little stiff. I did grease the belt as recommend and time has helped. It isn't a problem, but as a runner it's something that you would like to know. Overall happy with this treadmill with heavy daily use.

One Year Old and I Still Love It

It's been a year since I bought this treadmill. Because of my unusual delivery situation I did not buy it on Amazon, but directly from LifeSpan with their concierge delivery and assembly. I am very handy with tools but they were in and out in 30 minutes.

I use the treadmill every morning. According to the Lifespan Fitness Club I average 17 miles a month and walked or jogged 189 miles since I've had it. (not sure why the math does not work out) I am the only one who uses it and since I live alone I can't say if the noise would bother anyone. For anyone looking at these I strongly recommend you go to various stores and look at them in person. Feel the buttons, lean on the handles, jump up and down on it. If it feels cheap in the store then it will feel cheap in your house.

I felt this was the sturdiest, best build quality in it's price range. For me the biggest selling points were:
* Build quality
* Button design and feel
* Location of buttons
* Included chest strap
* Smoothness of operation
* Display size and readibility

I am not one to fool around with gizmos so my routine consists of pressing "start" and walking/jogging by using the speed up/down buttons on the handle. There are built-in and customizable exercise programs but I do not have the patience to use them or set them up. The main console LCD is very easy to read and the buttons on the main panel are illuminated. Response to speed or elevation changes are as fast as the best machines I have used. The one gizmo that I do use is the included usb dongle that plugs into the control panel. Every couple of days I plug it into my computer and upload the workout data to the Lifespan website. It took some trial and error to set this up, I had to upgrade some free software on my mac but since then it has worked flawlessly. If you are really into fitness LifeSpan has a way to keep track of every fitness thing you do via the included online Fitness Club membership, but I can't speak to that since I only track my miles.

The treadmill folds up but it takes some strength to do that, so I only fold it to occasionally vacuum underneath. It does not come with a mat but one is recommended. At minimum it will keep the silicone and whatever else is on the belt from staining your carpet. I also recommend installing a TV that you can see while you are exercising. That is the single most important factor that has enabled me to keep up this regimen for an entire year. I always watch the morning news so this way I can combine to activities and save time.

Lastly, because this is the least important, I like the way it looks. It is very low profile and the console is not some huge piece of plastic with ugly graphics. It is designed like a sophisticated piece of equipment and since it's in my bedroom I have to look at it all the time.

Treadmill of my Dreams

Review by Denis-Mounie

I've run on home treadmills in other people's homes before and found them lacking compared to commercial gym models. My mother's treadmill is so loud I only used it once for three minutes. A friend's treadmill isn't powerful enough. Another one had such cheap plastic on it I was afraid of breaking it as it shook to my weight (normal BMI). But I really wanted my own treadmill after turning the back bedroom into an exercise room (it's very cheery and I'm pleased with my project).

I found this one at $500 off in the Amazon Warehouse. The reviews looked good, the treadmill with its features looked attractive. After I hit the Proceed To Checkout and before I hit Place Your Order, I texted my husband with the deets and gave him the chance to stop me. But no, he said he'd use it too. This thrilled me and I Placed My Order.

I was given the option of when to have it delivered by Ceva and it arrived almost on the dot. Knowing from other reviews that they wouldn't bring it in the house, I sent Dear Husband to get the hand-truck. The man offered to help us in with it though! I was surprised and I hope by writing this he doesn't get in trouble. We tipped him for his efforts and were very grateful. It's a heavy box.

Although it was said to be in "Excellent" condition, there was a small dent in one of the long vertical bars in the front. And the box was seriously damaged. I really hoped I wouldn't have to return it after wrestling it into its small space. In the end, the discount outweighed the small unsightly dent.

I wanted to assemble it myself and for the most part, I did. It took about two hours at a leisurely pace. Mostly it was very easy, but I didn't pay attention to the different types of screws- the wide thread tap ones are for plastic, the narrow thread flat ended ones are for the metal.

The finished treadmill runs smooth and very quiet. I can't be heard from our bedroom next over with the doors closed. Yesterday I ran for half an hour and put it through its paces. My favorite part are the quick speed buttons. When you hit these buttons you can go right to 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 and 6.0 mph. Perfect for manual intervals- I don't use pre-programmed exercises most of the time.

The deck feels a little more unyielding than commercial machines. I'm okay with this as it feels nearer to road running. Also, I don't seem to fly along as easily- it feels there's a bit more effort in the exercise. Again, I like this because it kind of imitates non-moving ground. I say all this based on I don't seem to crank up the speed as high as I do on professional treadmills at the gym.

I like the speakers blowing the music at my face when I run on it- more than I like wearing headphones. This won't work early in the morning while DH is still sleeping, but any other time, look out! It's very motivating. :)

And finally, for funsies, Dear Husband got on to try it the other day and actually stayed on it for ten minutes. He is not an exerciser and naturally slim.

We've had it for four days and these are my thoughts. I will update if I think something should be added later on down the road.

Happy running!!

The Best Treadmill I've Used

Review by S. Datla

My TR3000i arrived last week, and is the most beautiful and rugged treadmill I've owned or used (at Gym). The construction, frame and console are very sturdy, with careful attention to every bit of detail. I had a few questions, and called Lifespan fitness. The sales and support teams were very helpful (compared to my earlier experience with Icon Fitness/Health Rider -- where support is pretty much non-existent!). In all, I am extremely satisfied with the Company and their product and strongly recommend their product. I exercise very regularly at a local gym, and at home when I cannot make it to the gym; I've used a lot of equipment and this treadmill is very good!

Awesome machine! Exactly what I wanted.

First of all, I should start by saying that I originally brought the TR1200i machine on Amazon for $1049; however a few days later I got a call from Lifespan to let me know that there was a parts shortage on the TR1200i and thus I would not be able to get that machine for 6 weeks. As consolation Lifespan upgraded me to this machine so I wouldn't have to wait so long for free - so I just wanted to give BIG KUDOS to Lifespan. A++++++ Customer Service!!!!!

Now as for the actual machine - simply awesome. It was a breeze to put together. From start to finish no more than 45 minutes.

The machine itself runs very quiet and is sooooo smooth. It is comparable and in my opinion and better than most of the treadmills I have used at public gyms over the years.

As an added bonus there are speakers built into the treadmill so you came play your music out loud while you run.

The machine is soooooo configurable. There are a ton of preprogrammed running programs and other goodies that I am still learning how to use. There are also controls on the handles to adjust speed and incline - very very convenient as I like to mix things up and it is nice not having to reach to the console. As for the console, it is visually pleasing and does not overwhelm the senses, however it is still fairly high tech. I liked it. It is very evident right from the get go that there is a ton of neat technology built into this machine - again nice job by Lifespan!!!!

So far I have gone for three runs, and I have zero complaints.

Anyway If you have the cash and are looking for a great treadmill I cannot recommend this model enough.

Wonderful Treadmill!

I received this treadmill this morning. The box was in perfect shape and it was packed really neatly and was very organized.

It took about an hour for me to put it together. Please note, I did it all myself and I am a girl...impressive, huh ;)

Anyway, I used it for about 30 minutes this morning after I put it all together and it's a really great machine. The motor is pretty quiet and it runs really smooth. Unlike another reviewer that wrote he had problems with it being next to his AT&T U-verse, I have a box right next to this treadmill and no problems. Also no shocks like another reviewer wrote as well.

Looks like this baby will last for a while. I'm really excited about it and am very happy with my purchase!

UPDATE:

I love this treadmill. I've been running on it and it's super quiet and gets the job done. No problems whatsoever with my AT&T U-Verse wireless box. The only thing that is sort of a pain in the butt is getting it to fold but I never do that anyway so it's not a big deal.

Seriously, if you're looking in this price range, this is the treadmill to get. It's absolutely wonderful.

A GOOD ONE!

Have had this for several weeks. No flaws in workmanship found. Compared to the prior folding treadmills we have had (and worn out with daily use of 7+ miles between 2 of us):

PROS-extraordinarily quiet (no need to increase volume on mp3 player or tv); motor operates smoothly; folds easily; incline operates smoothly; speed and incline controls on handles easy to use; large number of programming options.

CONS-heavy therefore hard to move; safety disconnect can be accidentally hit and displaced when reach for front hand-hold (unit stops); side hand-holds rather widely separated (my major complaint and hence only 4 stars); plethora of buttons for almost overwhelming number of programming options.

OVERALL-I would buy this one again...but suspect that I will not have to!

Near Commercial Gym quality

Review by Chris S. Hill

We have been wanting to buy a treadmill for some time. We have a gym membership and the gym is only 3 miles from our home, but the 8pm to 9pm time frame we'd like to go in the evenings all the treadmills are usually taken (it's a smaller gym) so we decided to buy a treadmill for the home. As a child growing up my parents had a $400 treadmill they bought from Sears, always had issues, didn't seem to sturdy - even recently my mother bought a basic treadmill from Wal-Mart - Golds Gym or something like that - good for her needs.

Having been spoiled by commercial treadmills over the past 10 years I knew I wanted a higher end treadmill. Nothing worse than trying to work out no an inferior treadmill. I had been considering models from Sole and ProForm - both in the $1500-$2000 range. I had been combing craigslist to find one of these used, where prices ran $700-$1000 typically. Anyway we recently had a Best Buy concept store open up in Cincinnati - Warehouse B, which offers refurbished and NIB products at significant savings. The Lifespan TR3000i popped up in an email flyer recently and I decided to check it out.

I had never heard of Lifespan - as I was shopping models that could be had at Dicks or Sears, but after seeing the treadmill in person and the fit and finish of materials I was impressed. The Sole and Proform I looked at in Dicks seemed a bit lacking. Amazon reviews seemed promising and a NIB (not a refurbish) price os $799 sealed the deal. We weren't looking for a folding model but it is a bonus and even being a folding model the unit is very sturdy. The treadmill is quiet and the deck has very good cushioning. Even at the $1,499 that Amazon..com is selling the treadmill for, this is about as close to a commercial quality treadmill that you are going to find without spending $2,500 plus. While the TR3000i isn't quite as nice as the Lifestyle treadmills I've been using at our local gym, it is on par or better with most of the treadmills I've used in Hotel gyms over the years. Overall a well built quality treadmill that bridges the gap nicely between low end and commercial grade.
