Thumbs Up All Around!
One reason you want to consider buying the LifeSpan Fitness TR4000i treadmill is because I am not the only professional source endorsing it. There are several prominent resources that gave the TR4000i a thumbs-up.
The general consensus is that this is a highly engineered machine equipped with quality components. I’ve been to the LifeSpan headquarters in Salt Lake City and was impressed with the staff’s commitment to their products and to their customer. I would put LifeSpan treadmills in the same category as Sole Fitness and Yowza Fitness for durability.
One of the most impressive factors about LifeSpan as a company is their dedication to quality customer service. Their customer service department is ran by a 15-year veteran in the fitness industry. You’ll find that with a lot of larger, more well-known fitness equipment brands the customer service department can certainly be lacking to say the least. When you choose LifeSpan, you are getting knowledgeable and responsive customer service.
22” x 60” Running Space — This is a generous size treadbelt, ideal for any type of running and/or walking workout. The running surface is combined with a 1″ thick deck which will reduce noise and make for a gentler workout on your joints.
3.25 HP Continuous Duty Motor — Standard size motor for this price. This motor will easily handle runners and incline training.
2.5” Rollers — 2 front-mounted and 2 rear-mounted wheels for easy forward/backward movement and storage capabilities. Decent size rollers tat will reduce noise and wear and tear to the belt, bearings and motor.
Forgiving Shock Absorption — There are two factors that make the shock absorption appealing on the TR400i. First, there are four compressions shocks on each side of the deck. Many treadmills at this price have only three per side. Having four better distributes the impact and reduces the shock. Second, the LifeSpan TR4000i comes with a 2.8 mm thick orthopedic belt, which further reduces the impact and shock to your lower joints and back.
7″ Full Color Screen — As of 2019, the LifeSpan TR4000i comes with an updated full-color touch display screen. The console features 3 dashboard views (graph view, gauge view, and track view). Although the dashboard is touch display, the console still includes physical buttons so you can easily make speed and incline adjustments during your workout.
Warranty — Lifetime frame and motor warranty, 5 year parts, and 2 years labor. This is a pretty standard warranty for this price range.
Incline AND Decline — Having both incline and decline capabilities is an extremely appealing feature. The TR4000i can go from -2% decline to up to 13% incline. This is a great way to enhance your workout and really get your heart pumping.
Additional Features —The TR4000i has several “bonus” features…
There are two reasons you want to consider the LifeSpan TR4000i. First, the forgiving shock absorption system with the 8 variable density compression shocks, and the orthopedic belt. Second, the reputation and recognition the TR4000i has received from several reputable fitness and consumer resource.
The LifeSpan Fitness TR4000i treadmill is one of their most updated and innovative machines. While LifeSpan is a company that is known for the durability of their machines rather than adding all the “extras”, this machine have a ton of additional features and upgrades.
Health Magazine gave the LifeSpan TR4000i a #1 rating. Runner’s World suggested the treadmill was solid, durable and stable and good for runners. A popular consumer magazine gave the TR4000i a “Recommend” Buy. It received an excellent rating for ergonomics, construction and exercise range. All are strong endorsements.
