Lifespan TR2000 HRC Treadmill Review 2020

Product Review

Lifespan TR2000 HRC Folding Treadmill

The Lifespan TR2000 Folding Treadmill offers some things you haven’t seen on a treadmill under $1500 before.

You get a 5% decline (in addition to the 10 level incline). So you can walk uphill or downhill – very cool and usually found on $5000 health clinic models.

The TR2000 treadmill also offers 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.

Along with a step-count feature, bright LED screen, several ‘Recommended Buy’ awards and sidebar incline/speed controls, this makes the TR2000 very popular. 

Features:

  • Price: $1299.99 (+ Free Shipping)
  • Motor: 2.5 HP
  • Speed: 0.5 – 10 MPH
  • Incline:  10%
  • Treadbelt: 20 x 56″
  • Folding: Yes
  • Heart Rate Control: Yes, Hand Grip
  • User Weight Capacity: 350 lbs
  • Warranty: Lifetime Frame, Lifetime Motor, 5 Years on Parts, 1 Year labor

Verdict: Highly Recommended

The Lifespan TR2000 treadmill is over-the-top impressive for the price. With a built-in 5% decline, open deck design, step count and speed controls on the handrails, it can help you get a better and more comfortable workou.

Plus with the compact size it’s great for people who are limited in space but still want a higher quality treadmill.

Product Pros And Cons

Lifespan TR2000 HRC Treadmill

1) 5% Decline – This is something you don’t usually find on a mid-priced treadmill.

You can walk uphill or downhill. Walking on a decline works different muscles and can give you a better workout with more variety.

2) Open Deck Design – The Lifespan TR2000 treadmill is built 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.

3)  Compact –  Lifespan home treadmills are built to be more compact than other treadmills. The TR2000 footprint is only 63.5″ long by 32 “wide (53” tall). This is great if you don’t have much space in your home gym – but you still want a higher end treadmill.

4) Automatic Safety Pause – The TR2000 has 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) Speed and Incline Controls on Arm Bars – You can change your speed or incline with the touch of a button on the arm rests instead of reaching up to the console.

This comes in handy, especially when you pick up your pace and don’t want to reach up to the console which can throw off your stride.

6) Step Count – With so many people trying to walk their “5,000 steps a day”, this is a helpful tool. You choose the number of steps you want to walk and the console shows how many you’ve taken. 

7) Expert Awards – It’s no surprise, given the strengths above that the TR2000 has a lot of top expert reviews and recommendations including Consumer Reports, and Consumer Guide. The Los Angeles Times commented:

“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.”
