LifeSpan has an extensive lineup of treadmills, including options for your home office and home gym. Their fitness line includes folding treadmills with inclines and speeds to challenge any runner. Home office options include under desk walking treadmills to keep you fit and moving while working at a desk. This expansive lineup features treadmill models for any size home or office. As we review LifeSpan’s treadmills, we’ll take a closer look at all this brand has to offer for your home gym.

LifeSpan Fitness Treadmills

These folding treadmills are some of LifeSpan’s best-selling and highest-rated models. A durable deck and quick top speed make these a great option for anyone who wants to train at home on a folding treadmill.


LifeSpan TR1200i Treadmill

The TR1200i is LifeSpan’s most affordable treadmill. This budget model features a 7” full-color display with three different screens, simple console buttons, and preloaded programs for varied training options. Workout programs include two for heart rate training, five for daily workouts, seven for sports training, and two customizable options. The 21 workout options provide lots of training variables for users at any conditioning level. Despite its budget price, the TR1200i includes many features found on more expensive models including a hydraulic shock system that helps when folding and unfolding the treadmill. It also has a cushioned deck, 2.5HP motor, and a 20” wide by 56” long-running surface. We recommend this treadmill for walking since the motor power and deck size may limit speed or distance running. Also, the max user weight is only 200lbs, which users should consider prior to purchase. However, for petite users who mostly plan to walk, the TR1200i is a good budget option.

  • 20W” x 56”L deck surface
  • 2.5HP Motor
  • .5 – 11MPH Speed range
  • Inclines 15 levels
  • EZFold hydraulic folding system
  • 70” L x 33” W x 55” H footprint
  • 39” L x 33” W x 63” H footprint when folded
  • Step up height: 8.25”
  • Max user weight: 200lbs

LifeSpan TR2000e Electric Folding Treadmill

The LifeSpan TR2000e is our favorite electric folding treadmill. This compact model will fold and unfold electrically with just a push of a button on the console. This makes the TR2000e our top recommended treadmill for seniors. There is no need to reach or bend to fold or unfold the deck; this machine will do it all for you! The TR2000e also has a weight capacity of 300lbs, making it a viable option for many users. The low 8” step-up height, 15 levels of incline, and 2.5HP motor make this excellent for walking. Users with limited mobility or joint sensitivity will also appreciate the comfortable deck and eight compression shocks.

  • 20 W x 56” L treadmill belt
  • 2.5 HP motor
  • .5 – 11MPH speed range
  • 15 levels of incline
  • 71” L x 33” W x 56” H footprint when open

LifeSpan TR2000i Folding Treadmill

The LifeSpan TR2000i is a step up from the 1200i with more power and cushioning and a higher weight capacity. This folding treadmill will support up to 300lbs but maintains the low step-up height of 8.25”. Hydraulic assist makes folding and unfolding the TR2000i easy with minimal effort. I love the 7” full-color touchscreen on this treadmill. The touchscreen feature is especially handy. It comes preloaded with 17 programs as well as two heart rate programs and two customizable programs for your preferred training modality. The Intelli-Step system works like a pedometer, counting your steps for you while you walk. This is a great option for users who want a bit more functionality on a compact, lightweight treadmill for home use.

  • 2.5HP Continuous duty motor
  • 2-Ply belt with 650lbs of maximum lift capacity

LifeSpan TR4000i Folding Treadmill

The LifeSpan TR4000i is a great running treadmill with a 3.25HP motor, 13 levels of incline, and 2 levels of decline. 8 compression shocks absorb impact from running for a more cushioned feel. This also includes the EZFold system with a hydraulic assist to fold and unfold. The TR4000i has a 350lb weight capacity and a top speed of 12MPH. The 22” W x 60” L deck offers plenty of space for a full running stride. We love the full-color, 7” touchscreen display with three different dashboard screens. It also includes more than 20 preset programs including a 5k and 10k option. The Intelli-Step system counts your steps while the Intelli-Guard feature automatically pauses the belt anytime you step off it.

LifeSpan TR5500i Folding Treadmill

The TR5500i is LifeSpan’s top-of-the-line treadmill with 13 levels of incline, 2 levels of decline, and a 4.0HP motor. The 13.5 MPH top speed is one of the fastest we’ve seen on a motorized treadmill. 8 compression shocks absorb impact from running so you can run longer distances without discomfort. The 1” phenolic deck has 2.5” rollers on the front and 2” rollers at the base to move the belt along smoothly. The TR5500i has a 350lb weight capacity and 22” W x 60” L deck for a full running stride. The full-color, 10” touchscreen is impressive with three different dashboard screens and more than 20 preset programs including a 5k, 10k, and the Rockport and Navy Fitness tests. Like the TR4000i, the TR5000i includes the Intelli-Step and Intelli-Guard features for safety and convenience.
