Compactness and a step count feature on the Lifespan TR2000e folding treadmill are just two advantages to this attractive model. You also get the exclusive incline feature that simulates running uphill. Can you feel the burn already?
The Lifespan TR2000e folding treadmill has an easy to read blue backlit display showing calories burned, workout time, speed, incline, heart rate, distance traveled, and step count. The pre-set programs include 2 heart rate 2 custom and 17 preset workouts.
Let's take a look at the specs...
The Lifespan TR2000e folding treadmill is equipped with a 2.5 hp continuous duty motor, a 650-pound thrust, 2.5" front roller, 2" rear roller, 1-inch thick deck with aluminum side rails, 2-ply tread belt, 56" long running area, EZ folding mechanism, and a 300-lb user capacity. It also offers quick buttons on the console and handlebar toggle buttons for speed/incline, plus heart-rate-controlled (HRC) programs, and a good warranty.
LifeSpan has stepped up their tracking capability with an optional Bluetooth adapter that allows you to sync your workout results via the LifeSpan Active Trac app with your favorite fitness apps such as Apple Health or Google Fit.
The TR2000e comes with the Automatic Safety Pause, part of the Intelli-Guard technology, which senses when your foot no longer strikes the tread belt and will automatically pause after 20 seconds of non-use.
If you’ve already done some research on this model, you have likely seen the positive reviews on the Lifespan TR2000e folding treadmill, a model that has been around since 2007.
There are a few negative comments regarding the lack of an MP3 plug-in or any other entertainment option, and the way the readouts are arranged. But even with a few minor comments the same reviewers went right back to praising the treadmill’s quiet operation, solid feel, good programs, minimum footprint, and most of all, the decline feature.
We like the way the Lifespan TR2000e uses “all the runway.” The motor is actually tucked beneath the deck so you don’t have the large motor shroud in the front to kick with your toes.
This open-deck design also makes the overall frame length shorter and thus, easier to store when folded. It is just 50" long when folded; compare that other models at 65" or more. That’s more than an extra foot saved by this innovative motor-placement design.
The treadmill rates well for belt size, noise level, warranty, power, cushioning, programs, component quality, overall value, and for the exclusive features such as the negative incline and the step counter.
For under $1000 on sale, the Lifespan TR2000e folding treadmill is a good buy.
