- Where To Buy
The best option for most people with the added feature of the electrically adjusted desk height. I personally would buy it with the electric height adjustment but some would want to save a few bucks with the cheaper option. Lifespan took their 1200 DT5 model and added an electronically adjustable desk height. Now that Icon has dropped the price of their electronically adjustable unit to the same price, there is real competition with Proform. The downside of the TR1200 DT7 when compared with the NordicTrack Desk Treadmill is that you can move the desktop to the side and then use it as a regular treadmill with the NordicTrack.

Lifespan is imported by PCE Fitness, a company that began in 1994 by designing exercise equipment for other companies. They have been known for making some of the best looking designs in the business and are now solidly in the niche area of fitness while you work- like treadmill desks. If you have limited space, this is a good brand to look at with some of the compact units they offer.
Quality / Philosophy
Lifespan is primarily concerned with putting together an acceptable quality parts assortment into an attractive package and they do that very well. They have become much more aggressive with their pricing. Overall, they put good components into a nice package on the value end and better components into their higher end machines where it matters although we haven?t seen good results with some of the light institutional product.
We would expect Lifespan to be around for some time. If there is a Rocky Marciano in the fitness business, PCE is it. They have developed an impressive dealer list in a short amount of time and understand the marketing side of this business. That can carry you a long way. When you visit their headquarters, you understand they know how to pinch pennies which really helps in an economic time like this.
