The fitness craze is here to stay as more people are recognizing the importance of getting in shape and staying fit. The LifeSpan TR1200i has many features that make it appealing including the attractive design, 2.5-horsepower motor and roomy running surface. Users interested in this model desire a machine to use while jogging, running or walking in exercise programs designed to help them reach their fitness goals. People that weigh up to 300 pounds can use this treadmill.
The first thing noticed is that it is extremely quiet while in operation and very user-friendly as for example you can totally control speed and incline using the handlebars while at the same time checking your heart rate. The console is super easy to read and when plugged in to the USB will show age, gender, height and weight so the user does not have to enter this information with each use. Both the console and the handlebars are stable even when the user is running. A unique thing about the program is that this treadmill actually counts steps much like a pedometer does which can be very motivational.
Although the photographs make it appear as if the USB drive is included, it isn't and also even though the manual clearly states that you must apply lube before using it for the first time, no lube is included, not even a sample.
The Bottom Line:
The LifeSpan TR1200i is a well-designed treadmill that has features that make exercising fun. The unit folds up nicely if needed. Reviewers rave about the program and about how quiet it operates which makes it a much recommended fitness machine.
