Lifespan Fitness TR500 Folding Treadmill

lifespan_fitness_tr500_treadmillHi again this Monday of February 2009! Keeping to our posts on affordable and residential folding treadmills, we shall cover one of the few I have liked in the economy category – the Lifespan Fitness TR500 Folding-Treadmill. Now, this is a good machine for walkers and casual joggers like most folding treadmills but comes with enhanced stability and wider range of workout options. It has decent shock absorption at foot strike, good usage-area dimensions and folds easily – all the things that count for home treadmills. Let’s take a look at what else the Lifespan Fitness TR500 Folding Treadmill offers.

lifespan_fitness_tr500_treadmill_consoleThe Lifespan Fitness TR500 Folding Treadmill comes with a lifetime warranty on its frame (made of welded heavy-gauge steel) and motor and a year each on labor and parts. The Lifespan Fitness TR500 Folding Treadmill also has an EZ Drop folding mechanism that makes folding simple. The Lifespan Fitness TR500 Folding Treadmill comes with non-slip plastic side rails for support.

Unlike other folding machines, it has a good deck suspension that cuts out injury risks. With eight shock-absorbing elastomers in the deck suspension to evenly absorb the impact of the foot strike, it provides a firm push-off after foot strike. Among workout options, the My Zone program automatically adjusts incline and speed to keep the intensity of your workout consistent. The LifeSpan Fitness TR 500 Folding Treadmill is priced at USD 999 (though some retailers offer it at USD 945) and with good warranty coverage, it makes a good buy as a home treadmill.

MY RATING OF THE LIFESPAN FITNESS TR500 FOLDING TREADMILL – 4 out of 5 stars.
