How long will the LifeFitness T5 Track Connect last?

The LifeFitness T5 Tract Connect treadmill is well built with a 341 lb. assembled weight which can hold users up to a hefty 400 lbs. To back up this robust design, LifeFitness offers a lifetime warranty on the frame and LifeSpring shock absorbers, 10 years on the motor, 7 years on parts, 3 years on the console, and 1 year on labor. Proper care and maintenance will allow a moderate user many years of cardio workouts on this treadmill.

Brief Overview

The LifeFitness T5 Tract Connect treadmill is the upgraded console option of the T5 series and offers consumers a path to interactive workout performance fun. It carries all the characteristics of the Go Console with additional technological features designed to share individualized statistical information resulting in intensified workouts that blast cardio workouts to the next level. This combination of tech and commercial grade parts in the T5 Tract Connect shows LifeFitness is tuned to consumers and their need to be connected while exercising.

Overall Quality

With the use of Bluetooth technology and the LFconnect app, the LifeFitness T5 Tract Connect treadmill offers the ability to partner with fitness apps to provide a personalized workout experience. This console option offers 16 built in programs along with 12 custom workouts and can hold 4 individualized user profiles. For maximum viewing, the integrated tablet holder is placed at eye level for optimal viewing while not covering pertinent performance statistics. Built with quality parts and commercial gym features, the LifeFitness T5 Tract Connect treadmill appeals to users of many fitness levels. While the 3.0 HP motor is not designed with serious runners in mind, it sports energy conscious technology and is powerful enough to provide up to 12 MPH for those that feel the need to break into a sprint or two a few times a year. The T5 also allows for longer strides on the 22” x 60” running area as users either walk or jog their way up to a 15% incline which is high enough to suit most fitness devotees. To mimic running on pavement, grass, and a running track, the FlexDeck shock absorption system offers comfort on lower extremities while increasing the outside exercise feeling.
