One of the most popular workout machines in gyms is the treadmill. On a good treadmill you can walk, jog, or even run.
Now it’s easy to have the same workout experience in the comfort of your own home.
Introducing the LifeSpan TR 1200i
The LifeSpan TR 1200i Folding Treadmill is a treadmill that is built for men and women up to 300 pounds. It features a running surface that is 20 x 56 inches.
When in use the treadmill is 33 inches wide and 70 inches long. Folded up, it only needs a 33 x 33 inch square.
The TR 1200i has a 2.5 horsepower motor so you can easily walk, jog, or run. The speed range of this treadmill is from a leisurely 0.5 mph all the way up to a challenging 11 mph.
The TR 1200i comes with 17 preset workout programs and you can save your workout data to easily track your fitness results.
What They Love
The LifeSpan TR 1200i is delivered with the bottom already assembled. All you need to do is attach the upright arms and the control panel. That should only take you 30 – 40 minutes.
One feature users want in a treadmill is for it to speed up and slow down smoothly. The TR 1200i gets high marks from users in this regard. Besides being smooth, it also gets up to speed quickly.
What Bothers Some Folks
Some owners report that the instruction manual for setting up the workout programs is not so clear. The truth is, I’ve never heard anyone praise an instruction manual for it’s ease of use and clarity. Maybe someday we’ll reach that stage … 🙂
Is the workout area of the TR 1200i large enough? The running surface is 20×56 inches. Most users find that to be adequate. Others think that a tall person would prefer a larger area.
However, there are some owners who say they are over 6 feet tall and report no problems with the workout area. If you are tall, I suggest keeping this in mind and try to experiment with different treadmills before you commit yourself.
All in all, the LifeSpan TR 1200i Folding Treadmill is a home treadmill that can give you a great cardio workout.
Though it’s not built to be used as a walking desk, it can even be used that way if you get a holder for your laptop.
