How long will the Lifespan TR1200 Desk Base Only last?

The Lifespan TR1200 Desk Base Only Treadmill holds users up to 350 lbs. and comes ready to use right out of the box, no assembly required with a light weight of 114 lbs. It carries a decent warranty of a lifetime on the frame, 3 years motor, 2-year parts, and 1 year labor with an option to purchase additional warranties through an outside vendor. It is designed for light use and will last through quite a few walking workouts, with care and maintenance.

Brief Overview

The Lifespan TR1200 Desk Base Only Treadmill is designed to fit under an existing standing desk and is optimal in bringing a walking workout into a sedentary work life. A portable console comes in two choices, retro or sleek modern, and fits right at a user’s fingertips for accessing pertinent workout information and speed controls. This innovative design will keep workers moving steadily through their day and is paramount to those who share the ground-breaking idea that movement increases overall productivity.

Overall Quality

The Lifespan TR1200 Desk Base Only Treadmill has a 2.25 HP CD motor that is optimal for light walking throughout a 6-hour timespan. Users can reach speeds of up to 4.0 MPH but a max speed of 2.0 can be set for those who do not want to disrupt their desks by trying to move to quickly. There are 6 shock absorbers that not only cushion joints but also softens the noise of the treadmill to keep sound at a minimum to less disrupt the work atmosphere. The portable console is available in 2 designs offering information such as distance traveled, calories burned, time, number of steps, and belt speed. You can also set it to silent to stop irritating beeps. This treadmill has been designed to decrease noise pollution while increasing productivity with physical movement and is the perfect addition to any home or work office. It is ideal even in a team setting as multiple users can rotate between a walking and sitting station if multiple units are not purchased.
