Used to be one of the best values you will find on a high quality machine but big price increases have hurt the value. With that said, it is about as high quality as you can get in a home machine. Hopefully you can find a dealer who is willing to concede on the price. Our advice to Landice is: don't mess with it if it ain't broken. Too bad they didn't take our advice. Unless you can get a discount from a dealer, better values are out there from Precor, Vision, and True. With that said, the Pro Sports Trainer is a very solid unit. The one thing that Landice does well is make the same unit across the different console series. So you only have to engineer a single lower portion of the machine and you simplify the design process and don't overload the engineering staff.

Landice has been making treadmills since 1967 and has carved out a nice corner of the market. Their machines are typically well built with high quality components but the MSRPÃ¢Â?Â?s simply have little relation to what they sell for. These are easy machines to negotiate a discount due to the high markup. The lifetime warranty is outstanding but make sure to read the restrictions and disclaimers first.
Quality / Philosophy
Their philosophy seems to be to put excellent parts into their treadmills and keep the design as simple as possible. The packaging of the product has improved substantially over the past several years. If more companies were willing to or could afford to put the quality of parts into their machines, we would be out of work.
Landice is probably one of the best-suited companies to weather the flood of imports. They are a niche player that is good at identifying and capitalizing on underserved areas which was evident with the rehabilitation treadmill they introduced a few years ago. The upgrades these past few years in the appearance of the machines were well received. As would be expected from a good niche player, they keep introducing features that make them appealing to small groups. Expect Landice to be around for years to come.
