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:
UPDATE: Johnson Health Tech has stopped making treadmills under the Livestrong name. Check out NordicTrack as well as their other brands, Horizon and Vision for comparable treadmills.
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.
If you are going to spend $5K on a home treadmill, get a proven model such as a LifeFitness Club Series, Cybex, or Precor commercial treadmill.
