LifeSpan TR2000e Folding Electric Treadmill Review
LifeSpan Fitness has been known for using high-quality components and wrapping them into one feature-packed unit. The 2015 Lifespan TR2000e is part of the company’s new line of folding electric treadmills, complete with advanced programming options and distinctive extras for comfort and convenience.
Its 2.5 HP Continuous-Duty motor generates up to 11 mph and is backed with an industry-leading lifetime warranty. There are 17 workout programs built into the console, while the bundled Fitness Club membership offers instant access to customizable workouts online.
Plus, the proprietary Intelli-Guard and Intelli-Step technologies also made a much-welcome reappearance in this model to ensure a safe operation, mile after mile.
Key features of the Lifespan TR2000e
Quality motor and suspension
Since it comes from a very popular brand in modern fitness equipment, the TR2000e is made with only the finest materials – from the motor and frame, all the way to the belt and rollers. It’s equipped with a robust 2.5 CHP motor that can reach a top speed of 11 miles per hour, and built with a solid steel frame to withstand the abuse of daily use.
The two-ply belt measures a spacious 20 inches wide by 56 inches long and glides smoothly around the 2.5-inch rollers for a seamless operation. More importantly, this belt is supported by 8 individual compression shocks which helps reduce the impact on the joints with every foot strike.
Safe and convenient
The folding electric treadmill was built with safety and convenience in mind. For starters, the handlebars are made larger, easier to grip, and include quick-access buttons for adjusting your speed and incline with ease.
Next is the Intelli-Guard system, a unique technology that automatically turns off the running machine when your foot is no longer touching the deck. And then there’s the eFold Electronic Folding system, which works to eliminate hydraulic lift assistance. This means that with a push of a button, the treadmill automatically folds itself – no more lifting required.
Free club membership
Just like the other LifeSpan Treadmills, the TR2000e comes with a 1-year free membership to their exclusive Fitness Club. This online health management system will let you record, store, and synchronize fitness and workout stats straight from the console for easier tracking and management.
Choose between saving your data via the integrated USB port, or through one of the downloadable apps that link your touchscreen device into the treadmill’s console. The data port also works double time by recharging your USB device once it’s plugged in.
While the TR2000e will let you create your own workout programs using the LifeSpan Club account, it also comes with 17 built-in programs. The selected workout can be seen displayed on the backlit LCD screen, together with the time, distance, speed, steps, incline, and heart rate.
Heart rate monitoring is made possible by the pulse grip heart rate, and the Telemetry-enabled setup will let you use a chest heart rate transmitter (sold separately). There’s also a headphone port and built-in speakers to keep you motivated with your favorite power music while the media holder secures your tablet or smartphone for stress-free viewing.
The LifeSpan TR2000e Folding Electric Treadmill measures 70.25 by 33 by 55 inches (L x W x H) and has a step-up height of 8 inches. It is covered by the manufacturer’s lifetime warranty for the frame and motor, 5 years for parts, and 1 year for labor.
