Life Fitness Treadmills – A Reputation for Excellence
Life Fitness Treadmill Reviews
Best known for their excellent commercial units, Life Fitness treadmills designed for the residential market also offer an exceptional value. They are a dream machine among treadmills; big horsepower, comfortable ride, built for performance, and styled with a sophisticated console and striking profile.
Like any good treadmill nut, you want to know which makers are the best in the biz and why. For high end, club-quality models, the brands you should know are: Bodyguard, Landice, StarTrac, True—and this brand, Life Fitness treadmills.
Life Fitness has a reputation for excellence with its treadmills, ellipticals, and the Lifecycle Stationary Bike which you may have seen in numerous health clubs. The great thing about the new marketing strategy of the company is that consumers don’t have to pay up to $8,000 for an elite Life Fitness model. Their lower end treadmill models (starting at $2,199) are also up to the task of supporting indoor runners who put in a lot of miles every week.
Same Outstanding Quality; Lower Prices
These are premium treadmills which look expensive, but the good news here is that Life Fitness dropped prices dramatically a few years ago to be more competitive. Whichever price level of treadmill you choose, you are getting full value — especially in the TV models.

Now that Life Fitness models are more affordable, take a look at what you get: a powerful continuous-duty motor that’s paired with a custom motor controller board and is kept in top running condition thanks to an advanced cooling system. This motor system comes with a lifetime warranty which you may not have need of — the treadmill is low maintenance and well-designed with big rollers and the proper belt type and size to help alleviate strain on the motor.
What the Pros Say
Life Fitness treadmills are listed on many Best Buy categories and have won numerous awards. Reviewers find the line of models to rate well in terms of a quiet ride, with reliability, power, cushioning, programming, long warranties, and exceptional value for the price.
Why You Should Take a Look
When you compare high end models, it may be hard to choose a Landice over a Bodyguard, or a True over one of these Life Fitness treadmills. We can’t say one is better than another; they are just different and thus it becomes a matter of taste and preference. But Life Fitness has chosen to make things more interesting and more competitive by knocking a few hundred dollars off the price.
