Final Verdict: LifeSpan TR1200i Treadmill

Check Customers Review

In order to provide you with the final verdict we need to see this treadmill in both of its aspects:

When it comes to its good characteristics we can mention the multiple programs that come in handy to all of your needs, the safety features, the heart rate monitoring options, the very comfortable belt which reduces the pain you can get from your hard training and the fact that you can listen to music. Also the most important point to be noted is that all these features are not available in most of the treadmills within this price range.

On the other hand there are some disadvantages about LifeSpan TR1200i treadmill. First of all you get free LifeSpan club membership for only 4 months and if you want a lifetime membership you need to pay a fee of $69. In addition, the treadmill does not have a fan, you’re bound to overheat without a fan. Also the motor makes little vibrating noise, which is not very disturbing. In my opinion the drawbacks are not really important compared to what this treadmill offers to you that too at such a nominal price, so if I were in your shoes, I sincerely wouldn’t hesitate buying it.
