Awesome machine! Exactly what I wanted. (Posted on March 12, 2011)Review by C. Thomas "Wanna be Critic"
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! (Posted on Dec. 23, 2011)Review by S. Dolan
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!
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! (Posted on April 2, 2011)Review by D. Kellogg
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 (Posted on March 8, 2011)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.

- Overall, my experience has been very good, from buying the equipment to setting up and using the treadmill. The staff was very knowledgeable and honest. And when it came to loading the treadmill into my car everyone was wiling to help.
