New for 2011, the Livestrong T1X treadmill is a strong but basic machine with a big price tag. It is built with commercial quality components and is intended for use up to 6 hours a day.
The alphanumeric LED display window shows speed, incline, time elapsed, time remaining, distance, calories burned, heart rate, and pace. A scrolling message center assists you through setting up a workout. The six pre-set programs include Manual, Rolling Hills, Fat Burn, Target Heart Rate, 5K race, and Gerkin Protocol.
The Livestrong T1X treadmill’s full list of specs includes:
The Livestrong T1X treadmill has a 2-ply commercial grade belt and a 20" x 60" running area on a maintenance-free Ultimate™ hard-wax reversible 1" deck that will last up to 25,000 miles.
The AC drive system is powered by a Matrix 3.0 hp AC Dynamic Response motor and controller that continuously monitors the user’s foot falls and adjusts automatically to ensure a perfect stride at all speeds. This treadmill requires a NEMA outlet that should be installed by a licensed electrician.
Other features include a low 7.5" deck step-up height, a 700-lb elevation motor that lifts the deck up to 15%, a 350-lb maximum user weight capacity, on-the-fly program changes, and contact HR sensors on the handrails as well as telemetric HR receiver capability.
At $5,195, the Livestrong T1X is the company’s top-of-the-line model for use in a private home or light commercial (office or corporate) gym setting.
Despite having a powerful AC motor and advanced deck configuration, the console is simplistic and very limited, not what you would hope for in a machine that costs this much.
Since there are no customer reviews on the Livestrong T1X treadmill yet, you will have to take it on faith that this is a durable machine, although the 5-year drive motor warranty and 3-year parts warranty are short compared to what other companies offer.
