Lifefitness T3 Go Console Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
New design is certainly polished with great fit and finish. The T3 is essentially the foldup without the extra parts that make it fold up. Quite a decent unit and if you've been using club models and want a Lifefitness, this is a good option.
The entry level model for those who want to tell others that they have a Lifefitness in their home. One thing we have noticed over the years is that you don't have to service even the cheap Lifefitness models often.
The Lifefitness T3 Go Console is a decent treadmill that sells for $2,599. It's a bit overpriced, but at least you have the comfort of dealing with Lifefitness, who is known to provide great service. This model was the 2nd runner up for our Best Buy award for treadmills sold between $2,500-2,999.
The walking area is a good size at 20" x 60". This is currently the most common size of belts for treadmills. It is large enough for most users to comfortably enjoy.
The motor is a little weaker than we'd like. You can find several models that sell for $500 less that have a motor capable of producing more power. This isn't something most people will be able to notice, however. You'll still be able to reach speeds of 12 mph, which is fast enough for most runners.
The cushioning system is just okay at this price. A FlexDeck shock absorption system is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. You can find more effective cushioning systems on cheaper treadmills.
The projected reliability of this model is not bad, but you can definitely find some less expensive treadmills that have a longer life expectancy than this one. The quality of parts is a little below what we'd like to see for a machine that sells for $2,599. Unfortunately, this is a common practice among companies that have a recognizable and trusted name.
The warranty is pretty bad for the Lifefitness T3. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts and electronics are covered for 5 years, the motor is covered for 10 years, and the frame and shock absorbers are covered for life. 10 years coverage on a motor is pathetic. 5 years coverage on parts isn't bad, but at this price, seeing a longer time frame should be expected.
