How long will the Lifespan TR1000 Desk Base Only last?

The Lifespan TR1000 Desk Base Only treadmill is designed to hold users who weigh up to 250 lbs. With a footprint of less than 5’, it is compact and made for light walking, not running or jogging. Lifespan backs the TR1000 with a lifetime frame, 3 years motor, 1-year parts, and 1 year labor warranties. They have partnered with Mulberry which allows consumers to buy extended warranties as an investment in extending the life of warranty coverage.

Brief Overview

The Lifespan TR1000 Desk Base Only is a revolutionary way to bring the workout to your work area by providing a treadmill that slips right under an existing working desk. It has a compact footprint and comes with a portable console that sits on the desk beside users as they work allowing an increase and decrease in speed placed conveniently at their fingertips. The TR1000 is a step up from the TR800 and offers up to 6 hours a day of walking pleasure for those who crave movement to increase productivity.

Overall Quality

The Lifespan TR1000 Desk Base Only treadmill is designed to encourage light walkers to leave their sedentary work time and engage in movement while they work. A user can essentially take this treadmill right out of the box, slide it under a standing desk, and begin using immediately. A 2.25 HP motor permits lower walking speeds while noise and painful knee and joint impact is minimized by the 6 shocks integrated into the treadmill design. The portable console offers customizable personal settings and can also count steps taken daily to encourage walkers as they exercise their way to increased productivity. It also includes time, distance, calories, and speed to increase workout efficiency. While the TR1000 Desk Base Only can hold up to a max of 250 lbs., exercise fans closer to that weight limit might benefit more by looking at the next step up TR1200.
