I finally saw Fiddler on the Roof a couple of years ago- not sure if the Jews for Jesus outside or the show was more entertaining. To borrow the theme from Fiddler, people buy Lifefitness for a reason- "Tradition!"
This is Lifefitness's in-between model. Better than the T3 but not enough better to warrant the difference in price. Either step up to the Club or save a few bucks with the T3 Track if you must have the Lifefitness name. If you have the ability to move from the brand, Precor makes exceptional models in the $4k range and True makes some exceptional models in this range. Lifefitness has really fallen by the wayside in attempting to make a purpose built model for the home. For those who want the Lifefitness club experience, the Club models will not disappoint you but you will have to pony up the big bucks!
