Runs Quietly Even At Higher Speeds

LifeFitness T5 Treadmill ReviewI recently reviewed the Life Fitness T5 treadmill at US Fitness in Cary ,NC . It was exactly what I would expect from Life Fitness. A quality machine that ran quietly even at higher speeds. Although Life Fitness is best known for the commercial grade elliptical trainers,they also build some very impressive treadmills.  The T5 is their mid-range model.

The most important feature on the T5 is the Life Fitness reputation for excellence. Life Fitness is known for having low maintenance equipment,and responsive customer service. Overall they build superior equipment, whether treadmills or ellipticals, but it comes at a price.

Features on the Life Fitness T5 Treadmill

3.0 Continuous Duty 3.0 HP Motor – This motor can handle runners and multiple users. However, it is a bit noisy at higher speeds.

22″ x 60″ Treadbelt – I really like the 22″ wide belt. You do not feel confined, and the extra 2″ allows you to run more naturally. The 60″ long belt is appreciated when you are running or if you are above average height.

341 lbs Assembled Weight – At 341 lbs, the Life Fitness T5 is as solid as any commercial treadmill.

FlexDeck – This shock absorption deck does a good job of absorbing impact, but still provides for a firm push-off in your stride.

Wireless Heart Rate Control – HRC is a preferred method of training for professional athletes. By training within certain heart rate zones, you can optimize your workout.

Warranty – With the LifeFitness T5 treadmill you get 10-years on the motor, 7-years on parts, 3-years console and 1-year on labor. The 7-years on parts is above average.

Our Review – Life Fitness T5

There are a number of reasons why the Life Fitness T5 is a superior machine, and worth considering. It has some excellent features and it is a very durable treadmill.

Although there is one feature I did not like, and that is the extended control panel that sits in front of the console. The design gives you easy access to common controls like speed and incline. However, it sticks out over the belt and forces you move back. Consequently, you lose several inches of usage on the treadbelt.

    I bought my T5 as a new purchase return. The heart rate monitor didn’t work. I checked the wiring and found the lead was never connected. An easy fix and now works perfectly. I probably would not have paid $4k for the T5 but for the price paid this was a steal. Really enjoying it and I don’t need all the fancy display options found on competing machines
