Brand Review

Lifespan Treadmills

Lifespan treadmills are owned and manufactured by PCE Fitness – a Utah based company founded in 1994.

While not as well known as other brands, Lifespan does have a growing reputation for building well-designed machines with high quality parts.

They also get our award for the most innovative designs this year. This includes treadmills with decline, open deck design, compact footprints and automatic safety stop sensors in the belts.

Lifespan treadmills have received awards from experts like Consumer Guide, Health Magazine, Los Angeles Times and the Industrial Design Society of America.

Starting at around $799 and up they offer several starter treadmills up to the high end home and light commercial treadmills.

Verdict: Recommended

Lifespan treadmills are like the dark horse in the treadmill race. Not many people know about them (yet) – but they pack a very strong punch.

These treadmills are built to be more compact than other brands. They offer strong construction and lots of unique touches like a belt-sensor safety stop, speed and incline controls on the handrails, open deck design and even decline.

Given the company’s approach to building higher quality machines and deliverying prompt, reliable customer service, we think they’re going to become very popular in the near future.

Brand Pros And Cons

Lifespan Treadmills

1) Compact – Lifespan home treadmills are built to be more compact than other treadmills. Lifespan even has a specialized compact treadmill – the TR200 – which folds up and can be stored under a bed or in a closet.  It’s only 13.5″ high when laying flat.

2) Folding with Shock Assist – Lifespan machines come shock assisted folding. This helps you save space without straining your back.

3) Open Deck Design – The Lifespan TR2000 treadmill is constructed with an open deck design.

The motor is placed underneath the frame which lets you get closer to the console without bumping up against the hood. This is really handy for taller users or runners who often run into the problem of stepping on the hood.

4) Automatic Safety Pause – Almost all Lifespan home treadmills have a sensor in the belt. It senses when you’re no longer stepping on the belt and will pause the treadmill after several seconds.

This is a great safety feature to give you some added protection.

5) Positive Lifespan Treadmill Reviews – Given that Lifespan isn’t a huge name yet, it’s impressive to see how many top expert reviews they have.

For example the TR2000 takes a “Recommended Buy” from Consumer Guide. It was also awarded the prize for “Best Unique Design” from a Leading Consumer Products Testing Group and the Los Angeles Times said:

Nice safety and performance features including a rare 5% decline. Convenient handlebar speed and incline control toggle buttons let you adjust at full stride. Child-safe belt pauses after 20 seconds of nonuse. Feels firm compared to other treads in this price range.

The TR4000i was also rated the #1 Best treadmill by Health Magazine.
